Hey everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend with your families. :) In keeping with our yearly tradition, we spent Saturday with my family and did an egg hunt and a big meal. That way, Sunday is reserved for the true meaning of Easter. Unfortunately, I caught a cold that prevented me from going with my family to church on Sunday, so I spent most of my Easter on the couch with tissue and tea. :}
Anyway, on Saturday, I brought several of my Zelfs with me so I could take a few outdoor photos. I had a great time figuring out perfect places for them. My daughters and even my dad had a few suggestions, too. ;) I hope you enjoy the results:
(clockwise from the top left) Lil' Lady B, Birchy, Dandy Lion, and Dorothy Doe
Flitter and Buttershy
Not a Zelf, but too gorgeous to pass up. ;)
The whole gang :)
After I'd taken several photos of the Zelfs in different outdoor poses, I thought it would be fun to take some pictures as if I were a wildlife photographer, trying to get pictures of them in their natural habitats. It was fun coming up with unique shots to give that effect:
Each of my daughters got to find a Lil' Zelf egg on their Easter egg hunt, so they asked if I could take some pictures of their Zelfs, too. :) They came up with the "poses" and locations.
Middle Gal's Dorothy Doe in the jingling garden bells...
...and in one of Papa's planters.
Oldest Gal's Lady B. in the strawberry patch...
...and taking time to smell the roses. ;)
Little Gal's Webina in a plant pot...
...and by the pond.
The girls also decided that this would be an appropriate picture for Easter weekend. :)
It's been a long time since I've done an outdoor photo shoot. I had so much fun. :) I definitely need to make time for more photo days. :)
Since I had so many fun photos to choose from, I decided to do a Zelf-themed blog header. Here is my former header (one of my very favorites!):
