Valentine’s Day is a day to spread the love. It doesn’t matter if it’s love for a friend, a partner, a sibling, a child or a parent, it reminds us to tell those special people in our lives that we love them.
I love taking pictures of the oh-so-cute little people in my life and thought that a Valentine’s Day photo shoot would be perfect. I started drawing up some ideas for the photo shoot, background options, and prop options. I decided to make a super sparkly LOVE banner and had the perfect neon sparkles. I tried to keep everything else pretty neutral so that the neon would stand out and I think it turned out alright. Oh, and we threw in some candy and some heart-shaped pillows to finish it off.
I thought it would be fun to have a couple different little setups so that the babies could play around and hopefully not get too bored of me taking pics. So this was the scene on one side of the room. On the other I had hung geometric paper hearts, which I saw on this fabulous website and had to make! For a free printable pattern to make your own check out minieco.co.uk (no affiliation, I just think she is amazing!) There’s tons of fun paper projects on the site. I printed them at two different sizes so that there was a bit of variation. I was pleasantly surprised that the kidlets didn’t tear them down and although I wasn’t too concerned about it, it definitely made me smile when one had fallen down and Archer wanted to put it back up!
Happy B-Lated Valentines day everyone,
