Mama's Little Valentine

So remember that amazing photographer I talked about in my last blog post?  Well, she offered Valentine's Day mini sessions and I wanted so badly to have my little Valentine's photos taken.  But, unfortunately, I didn't have fast enough fingers when she opened the session on Facebook.  (You have to be one of the first ten to respond...the spots were filled in literally seconds.)  So I decided to take matters into my own hands and take some photos of my own!

With a little help from the hubs, I created a "studio" on our deck. 

Outside = natural lighting = the best
Bathroom rugs = backdrop
Props = decor from Michaels

It was warm (for January), but we took the space heater outside to keep nakie little boy even warmer.

I even ordered a cute Valentine's outfit from Etsy (with hopes that I'd have true professional photos taken).

The pictures turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself!


  1. The tie is so precious!! & I love the kissing photos. I tried that during matthew's photo shoot and my kiss marks looks pathetic lol!!

  2. Those are great! You did a good job taking those yourself!
