Take Photos with the Easter Bunny In or Near NYC

Easter Bunny Photos for New York City Kids and Families

Along with egg hunts it's the season for the Easter bunny to hop into town. Not only will he be delighting children on special Easter train rides in NJ, he'll be posing for adorable seasonal portraits at a handful of spots in NYC.

However, getting real face time and a decent photo op with the big rabbit is harder than you might think. (He really needs to a take a cue from Santa!) We went on the hunt, though, and found out exactly where you can pose for pictures with the Easter Bunny in and around New York City this spring.

Looking for an adorable twist on the Easter theme? Your kids can pose with live bunnies and baby chicks at this intimate Manhattan studio. My daughter did it a few years back and the photos I purchased are truly some of the best I have of her. Worried about what happens to the animals after the holiday? Don't be. They go back to their rural home where they are well cared for.

Of course, you'll spot the Easter Bunny at egg hunts and special breakfasts throughout the five boroughs. Sometimes you can pay a fee for a pro shot, others you'll have to take your own pictures.
