My daughter likes that he wears glasses, just like she does!  easter-bunny-photos-selfieThe Bunny at “our mall” is also really fun and after we finished taking the photos for our package, he took a couple of extra fun ones with us. easter-bunny-photos-gardenNoerr Programs runs the Bunny Photos and offers several options for photo packages available for purchase. It’s really easy to select your favorite pose and have them printed out in a package, right on the spot. easter-bunny-photos-selectionsHave you visited The Bunny yet? If not, you’ve still got a little bit of time left but make sure to get there before March 26 cause he’ll be hopping away after that!
