Who doesn’t love kissing a baby? Plus, this gives you an excuse to grab a fabulous new red or hot pink lip color. Just apply a few layers of bright lipstick, kiss your baby’s adorable little face, and you’re all ready for the cutest photo ever!
Not only does a bright red lollipop with “Be Mine” written on it make a priceless photo, it also works as a brilliant way to keep your baby focused and smiling during your photo shoot.
Sweet Child of Mine
It will be so much easier to get your kids excited about a Valentine’s Day shoot if you get them actively involved in the creation of the props and make it fun for them. Create the backdrop by letting them color a large heart with chalk. If needed, you can draw the outline for them to fill in and then write any notes yourself.
The only prop needed for this adorable photo is your child. Simply have them pose as their cute self while forming a heart with their fingers. How precious is that?
Nothing makes for a better Valentine than your pet with its unlimited snuggles, generous kisses, undying loyalty and unconditional love. So don’t forget to include some loving photos of your best friend in your photo shoot. Show your love by covering your pet with lipstick kisses. Puppies and kittens will fit perfectly in Valentine themed mugs or cups making the most adorable pictures ever.
It’s a Family Affair
Nothing says love like getting the entire family involved in the fun like these Valentine’s Day photos you can create using props you have lying around the house.
Love is in the Air
Use pops of red and some heart-shaped marshmallows for a gorgeous Valentine’s Day couple’s or engagement session.
Make your own DIY banner or purchase one at a craft or department store and drape it in front of the couple to add a nice caption to the photo.
This is the holiday when you’re totally allowed to break out the camera and snap as many cute photos of your little ones and family as you’d like. Instead of embarrassing your kids in front of their crushes or paying a small fortune for baby pics, use these ideas to stage your own fun DIY photo shoot this Valentine’s Day.
