He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!


Some weeks ago I got to talking with one of the neighbors directly across from our apartment. Her name is Rett and she is a mom of 2 sons in their mid twenties. It turns out she loves to bake. We set aside some time for us to decorate some cookies and I decided to make this small bite-size treats.

Bunnies and Carrots

I kept it pretty simple. These were really cute.. but when there's 60 of them.. it's a pain in the ass to decorate. So.. I just used some crystal sugar to decorate about half.

Flowers 2

The plan was to give them to my church on Good Friday when we would gather to have service. The original plan was to put them in small clear bags and tie them with ribbon... but for 60?? Not gonna happen.


I remembered I had these wooden skewers for Evan's first birthday back in December and thought it would be a marvelous idea to stick them on these skewers and to have people grab them like lollipops.

Cookies 2

Cookies 4

Then when I went to shoot these I thought it would be fun to play around with different backgrounds. I always have a stash of scrapbooking paper in storage so I pulled some out and started shooting.

Set Up

They were done on our dining table with as much light as I could get. I didn't think a reflector was necessary because there seemed to be sufficient light.. but you can see some shadowing in the photos. Oh well. Something to keep in mind for next time.


I know this post and photos are of cute bunnies, carrots, flowers, and pastel-y things.. but for me Easter is about something else entirely. Hope you have a blessed Easter Sunday.
