Picture Perfect For February 14th!

The Valentine's Countdown that I'm hosting over at Nickelodeon's Parents Connect continues today with lots of fun ideas for staging your own Valentine's Day photo op.  Whether you want pictures for cards or to put in the family album, you won't want to miss these great ideas from Anders Ruff, Paper & Cake, J. Crew, Martha Stewart, 24*7*365 and I Heart Faces!  And just to show you the possibilities, here are a few more options I know you'll love.

Draw some signs for your kids to hold like Kellie from This Blessed Nest.

Who cares if everyone's looking at the camera or smiling?  The silly shots are just as sweet!

Make your own heart-shaped chalkboard to write a sweet nothing on, like this one from Martha Stewart.

If you have older kids, take a cue from J. Crew's Crewcuts' catalog and try laying them on the floor with candy or cupcakes forming fun shapes around them.

Or copy this fun idea from Color Me Katie.  Take a shot of your child blowing a kiss.

And then draw in some hearts.

You can write a love note on each one or attach them together to make a kiss flipbook.

If you like what you see here, make sure to check out my post with more fantastic photo op suggestions over at the Valentine's Countdown at Parents Connect and while you're there, enter to win some fabulous prizes!

  1. Those kids are adorable! And who cares if the signs were upside down? Enjoy the gorgeous weekend ahead, Kellie xx

  2. I think pics are cuter when the kids are all in disarray. It's more like "real" life! ;)

    And LOVE the idea of the white wall pic and drawing on the hearts... hmmmm... may have to use that for a fun birthday card. :)


Thanks for the love!
