Yellow/Easter [Nurture Photography]

After a long winter, there is nothing quite as anticipated or desired as the coming of spring. A time of rebirth and renewal when the earth once again awakens from her long slumber.

As temps warm and the rains fall, we get to witness this glorious miracle. It is moving and inspiring- beyond words.

As I reflect on our Easter season, my heart is full. Egg hunts with cousins. Favorite treats. Fun craft time with the kiddos making chalkboard eggs.

And the knowledge of the resurrection of my Savior.

I hope that you will take a moment to reflect on the remarkable gift of spring and grab your cameras to document those first buds and blooms. I know that we will all be seeing more color in the coming weeks and I, for one, can't wait to capture it!

Canon EOS 50D, Tamron AF 28-75mm f/2.8, Tamron 60mm f/2 macroPhotoshop Elements 10, Florabella Actions, Addy Lane Actions and Vinyl Shelf Liner Backdrop used for these photos. I also tried Rebecca's Saran Wrap Tutorial for a softer effect on the tulips.

I know that Easter is behind us, but I hope that you can incorporate these templates into your scrapbooks or blog posts. Or tuck them away for later. The set includes two 3x4 JPGs and two 5x7 PSDs that allows you to clip your own photos and customize as you desire. Our gift to you. Enjoy.
