With Easter being only 9 days away, we wanted to post some adorable bunny photos from the past couple of weeks. The bunnies this year are cuter than ever and have been working very hard to bring smiles and laughter to all the children that have visited us so far! We are keeping our little friends for one week following Easter, so you still have time to book your session and join in on the fun!

Happy New Year!

With the holidays now behind us, we are looking forward to a great 2013 and lots of new, exciting things for everyone.

The first thing we are looking forward to is our LIVE BUNNIES!
Over the years, we have heard from many of our Portrait Simple families that coming into our studios for spring portraits with our bunnies has become a favorite tradition in many households. We have already been getting calls and emails asking when they would be arriving in our studios! Bunnies will be hopping in on Saturday, February 16th, 2013. Appointments with our favorite little friends fill quickly, so make sure your book yours soon. Its not too early!Easter2013

Last year we had a Bunny Naming Contest among all ten of our studio locations. The bunnies and their names were posted on our Facebook page and voted on by you! Stay tuned for this years bunnies and the creative names our photographers have come up with. Our studio in Westfarms, CT won last year with their Dr. Suess themed names!

In the meantime, we have stocked our studios with fun and creative ways to say Happy Valentine’s Day to those you love. We have 20 designs for Valentine’s Day cards that are a great way to send a personal greeting to your children’s classmates, or grandparents! cardsamples

Need a little something more? This year we are also introducing our Sweetheart Collection, which includes everything you will need to spread the love this Valentines Day!

spring 2012 captured

    
With the excitement of our new studio opening in the Garden State Plaza and the bunny rush, we’ve fallen a bit behind on weekly pics wednesday… so hopefully this post will make up for lost cuteness! Here are some of our favorite captures from the past few weeks. It’s been a great spring so far! Don’t forget, Easter is Sunday but we have the bunnies for another week. Don’t miss your chance if you haven’t been in already!
