Valentines?

Anyone planning to do any special shoots for Valentine's Day? I usually send photos to the grandmothers, but I am so at a loss for inspiration right now.

Anyone care to inspire me? Wink

Best,
GiGi

Have you seen the sucker ones on Pinterest? They are cute. Um......I will be thinking. Maybe find just a cute large heart and have him hold it...

Would these be the arm outstretched, and you insert a sucker to look like they're giving it to the recipient? That's what I did for my boys to give out at school last year! This year I wanted to do something with the heart shaped bokeh.

Yep, that's the one I am talking about. It's all over Pinterest this year.

DD's birthday is on Valentine's Day, so you'd think I'd try to do something special to commemorate her birthday each year too, but it always feels like I have too much going on after Christmas to worry about it. DS's birthday is tomorrow and DH's birthday is Feb. 13th, then DD's on Valentine's Day, and with all the party plans and everything, I never do Valentine's photos. I would love to try, though. Maybe I can look up some ideas that everyone's talking about here and try next week!

Hope you get inspired, GiGi! Thanks for bringing up the topic!

I haven't yet dived into the pinterest waters ... anyone want to share what this 'sucker thing' idea looks like?

I'm am so devoid of inspiration right now. I have only taken my camera out ONCE since Christmas. Sad

TIA,
GiGi

Here's one example of the sucker idea, not the best, but was the first I found. http://blogs.creativememories.com/product_solutions/2011/02/photo-sucker-valentines-.html


and here's one I'm considering this year... http://thecraftmonkey.blogspot.com/2011/02/valentines-are-done-man.html

You ladies have inspired me! I hadn't really thought about doing a shoot with Tyler but I think I should!

No new ideas here. I'm going to try and do the heart-shaped bokeh with red and pink lights. I have NO CLUE what outfits to dress them in though. I just really enjoyed taking those bokeh shots for Christmas.

Call me a non-romantic but to me Valentines isn't a huge deal. I'll send the girls to school with some store bought cards and sweets but that's about it. DH and I don't really celebrate Valentines Day, just not our sort of thing. Plus DH's birthday is 2 days later and we are normally more focused on that.
