Valentine Photo Shoot
I love Valentine’s Day stuff. I don’t care about going out to an expensive dinner or getting overpriced flowers. I love the crafty part of Valentine’s Day. You know, paper hearts and glue sticks. I had an idea of setting up a backdrop in our home, so that I could take some photos of the boys.
Anytime I plan on getting their picture made, one of them has a meltdown or refuses to participate. This time I decided to surprise them with a photo shoot in the corner of our living-room.
With supplies from the Dollar Store I created a backdrop. I used red poster-board, white paper doilies and origami paper cut into hearts strung by twine. I also picked up red carnations at the grocery store. I used glue sticks to attach the doilies to the poster-board, then stapled the backdrop to the wall.
I had it set up before they woke up in the morning. They walked into the living-room and were excited and eager to have their photo taken. (This never happens!) The boys even wanted to use the flowers as a prop. Putney, our dog, joined in the fun.
I still can’t believe my surprise photo shoot worked. Bryce, my toddler, destroyed the back drop before I had the opportunity to get a photo with both of them at the same time.
I still managed to get a few really sweet shots.
