Watch this! Valentine’s Day Photo Ideas

We invited a bunch of kids to Pear Tree for a photo shoot, and created this video so we could show you some fun photography tips for Valentine’s Day that you can recreate at home. We had the kids dress in Valentine’s Day colors of pink and red, then created three different white backdrops that would make them stand out. Then we put the photos in our favorite new Valentine’s Day cards to see how they’d look!

Set a chair or fluffy rug in front of it for kids to sit on and you’ve got yourself a set for the photo shoot. Props like heart-shaped suckers are sure to bring smiles.

What’s more comfy to sit on than a bed? Ummm, can’t think of anything. Even better if it has a cool headboard that makes a glamorous backdrop for our photo shoot. Notice how the pink and red colors and the kids’ faces pop against this monochromatic backdrop. Oh, and pillow fights are mandatory.

Tape sheets of newspaper to a wall to give yourself a simple backdrop. Then add spots of color with hearts cut out of scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, construction paper or any red and pink paper you can find. Have your trusty photo assistant drop a few hearts from the sky to make it look like it’s snowing love.

  1. It is important to start planning and be well prepared for that Valentine.
    Of course giving romantic presents is very important
    and I don’t really recommend anybody to stop doing it; but if you continuously
    offer love-related gifts, it wil arrive the day when your soulmate simply
    stops feeling that wonderful surprise and meaningful effect.
