I don't know why, but I always want to do a photo shoot for Valentine's Day!
It most definitely did not happen last year. I was sad about it for a couple months afterwards because I kept meaning to do it and never did. I even had an outfit for Ruby and everything.
Anyway, photo shoots. My kids SUPER LOVE doing them!
I got these Valentine's Day table cloths and I hung them up as a backdrop. I hang things on my backdrop stand a few days before I need them to get out as many wrinkles as possible. I will edit the wrinkles out of these pictures later, but they are good for now.
If you only knew the number of outtakes it takes to get a smidgen of cuteness out of this one! She's crazy when the camera comes out!
I was taking shots of just the boys and Ruby started scooting herself closer and closer to them so she could get into the shot!
This was a totally accidental "Diva" looking shot! She was actually gearing up to run away from me!
We don't really make that big a deal out of it at our house, but now that my kids aren't all babies and littles (I have an 8 1/2 year old! When did that happen??) I'm trying to make the little holidays more special for them.
Making Valentines and Decorating their boxes for school
I cut their sandwiches into hearts
And I also wrote them notes on red cut out hearts and stuck them in their lunches with a treat.
Tonight we are going to cut out and decorate heart sugar cookies ~ It's not my favorite activity, but the kids will LOVE it. That will make it all worth it!
I hope you enjoyed this photo shoot!
Happy Valentine's Day! What are your plans for today?
