Valentine’s Mini Sessions

When I started seeing Valentine’s photo ideas coming in my Pinterest feed, I decided I wanted to get in on the action this year.  Since I typically don’t photograph with props, I took my time selecting and implementing my favorites that would have the biggest impact.  My first subjects were my boys.  I decided I wanted them to wear red bow ties, so I went onto Ebay to find some.  I ended up finding these bow tie and suspender sets, and I just couldn’t resist! 

Once wardrobe was set, I set about gathering some curvy and straight sticks to create cupid bows and arrows with felt.  I also created a large and a mini burlap banner.  These were my first, and I just love how they turned out.  We created a patch of hearts in the field, and set up some fun themed candies.  At the end of the day, I think the 3 of us had a great time, and captured these fun shots in the process!
