Default Children's Easter Pictures

Hi, a friend of mine just asked me to photograph her daughters first easter pictures. Madison is only 3 1/2 months old. I'm just curious to see if any of you have any ideas I could use.

So far, I'm thinking of putting Madison in a basket with easter grass and some plastic eggs. I'll have a white background with little stuffed bunnies on either side of the basket.

Also, I'm thinking of buying a large stuffed bunny and setting it against a wall with a background behind it. I'll sit Madison on its lap with some eggs scattered on the floor.

Any other ideas Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANKS

I'm okay with everything but the easter grass, unless MOM is right there to make sure she doesn't eat any of it. Maybe a soft pastel blanket instead? Also, fake tulips, or even real ones in a clay pot might be nice behind the baby.

Target has cute head bands with bunny ears or flower petals for a buck. They are cute if you add a stuffed bunny or flowers.

Still need ideas?
I took some easter portraits of my niece last year, she was 10 days old so not old enough to go nowhere and couldn't sit, pretty much the same boat as the 3.5 month old you're taking shots of - but the idea might still work.
I used a wicker basket, put a pillow in the bottom to raise her up closer to the rim, I had bought some different colored "fuzzy" fabrics at Joann's (white, blue and lavendar, used the lavendar for the easter shot), added some easter eggs (pastell colored), a flower ivy type thing and some baby chicks (fake) that I found at the dollar store. It worked ok. Something like that work for ya?
