I just discovered FlipSnack thanks to my little sister!  This site allows you to upload a pdf and then converts it into this amazing little photo album.  I uploaded some of my Easter photos just to test it out.  I love how you can hear the pages turning and the quality of the photos is amazing.   What fun way to share photos... I think I'll be making some more of these!


Rombach Easter 2012

I can remember many Easter's from my childhood.  We all had a colorful basket filled with "Easter grass" (mine was always pink) and we set them outside our bedroom doors for the Easter Bunny to fill.  When we woke up in the morning, we were treated to a full basket of candy, colored eggs and usually some Silly Putty.   Does anyone else remember Silly Putty?  It was the perfect Easter treat because it came in an egg.  The Sunday paper included a section of comics, which were printed in color.  We could flatten out our Silly Putty over one of the pictures, pull it away and then distort the image transferred to the putty by stretching it.   I know, not very high tech, but we had lots of fun!!

This year's Easter included the annual egg hunt in my parent's backyard.  I arrived early to get some shots of the little details... like all the eggs hidden in the yard by the Easter Bunny (smile).  Once the nieces and nephews arrived, it was time to find them (well, after I herded everyone into a group for some photos!).  The weather was PERFECT this year.  Most of the time the kids are looking for eggs in the soggy grass or a bit of snow.  This year, it was sunny and mild.  After all the eggs were found, we headed inside for a great meal.  As you can see below, my parents create a beautiful Easter table.

After dinner my nieces and I went outside for an impromptu photo shoot.  They were adorable and we had a great time!  I gave one of my nieces a little bunny pin that I wore for Easter when I was her age.   I love the picture of her wearing it.

On another note, my photography session calendar is filling up!  There will be a variety of senior sessions, some family sessions and one session with a group of 19 celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary coming up this summer and fall.  I'm a little nervous about shooting a group of 19... but I guess there has to be a first for everything!  Most importantly, I'm hoping for good weather because I know how challenging it is to gather a group of 19!!

Enjoy the Easter photographs!  Happy Spring!
