Inspired by many of the Easter photos on Pinterest, such as this one: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/428053139555473906/, with a little help from my husband we were able to create a number of wonderful heirloom quality photos of our son to celebrate his 1st Easter.
Originally the plan was take my son’s picture on our bed (as we always do) using a white bed sheet as the back drop and put him in some Easter outfits we bought on Etsy.com using some props (that were part of his Easter basket), but we got lucky and were able to use a more professional setting at my husband’s office which was set up for taking employee’s photos. But a white bed sheet near a window with good daylight lighting works just as well too.
We were very pleased with the result of the photos as were grandparents, aunts, uncles and other family members.
