Photographing Newborn Rabbits

With our two lionhead litters in Fall of 2015, we performed a bit of a photo shoot.  As the mom half of this rabbitry, I bring to the table, my years as a professional photographer and couldn’t wait to get my hands on these newborns for a shoot.

JODIE-OTTE-PHOTOGRAPHERI won’t tell all my secrets for getting these images, but it is a tedious and careful process insuring safety.  I will give a warning – this is not something that is easily accomplished, and I caution anyone who is trying this.  If the bunny is moving and not sleeping, the bunny is uncomfortable and needs to be returned to the nest immediately.  They can also be spastic with their movements if they feel discomfort or are hungry.  Do not force them.  I have 12 years of experience working with newborn human babies at J. Otte Newborns.

We will be doing an official photoshoot after each new group of kits, adding some interesting twists each time.  Already planning out our next one for our January 2016 births.

This was our natural photo shoot.  I didn’t want to get too proppy, and instead, just concentrated on the curled form of each little one.  We will get a bit more adventurous from time to time.
