Wardrobe Wednesday {Valentine’s Day!}

Jen from Minor Impressions always has creative ideas up her sleeve – and two of the most adorable go-with-the-flow girls to work with 🙂 I can’t wait to see what her Valentine’s Day cards will look like!

Why not schedule a fun candy-centered photo shoot for your little ones this year! Here are some ideas to get you started 🙂


Ok, I admit, I haven’t even taken down my Christmas tree yet! I know, I need to get with it because before I know it, I’m going to get a note in my daughter’s folder giving me all the fun info for her class Valentine’s Day party. It’s hard to believe it’s only a month away.

If you’re a little more prepared than I am, you still have time to plan an adorably unique photo shoot to make some cards that all of your kiddo’s friends will be excited to show off. The great thing about Valentine pictures is that they can get away with being very casual. Since these are cards that will be given to their friends, let them show their personality. You can make a simple t-shirt dressier with a  tulle skirt or a little more casual with a jean skirt and leggings. Let your son show his wild side for all the girls, or how tamed and put-together he is.

This is also the perfect time to find some adorable props to add. Instead of buying real roses with the thorns, you can find a bouquet of fake roses at a craft store, and all of the other items are easily found at Wal-mart or your local grocery store. Most kids will love the opportunity to eat chocolate or lick lollipops while being photographed, and the younger kiddos will find it hard to resist squeezing a new teddy bear!

    Maggie - Those are really cute ideas! I’ve never done photos for Valentine’s, but I’d love some this year. And I just got my tree down last weekend. LOL!
