Oh, Valentine’s Day. Some people love you. Some hate you. I generally find myself in the latter group 😛 I’m a happily married lady, but Valentine’s Day has never been one of my favorites. However, now that I have two little girls who really enjoy passing out Valentine’s and celebrating with their friends, I might be coming around.
Of course, boys as adorable as this help, too. Multiples have a special place in my heart and these three were no exception.
Brothers ::puffy hearts:: These boys each were sweet and funny in their own ways. We took this at my home-studio space (slash guest room, working with what we have!) we got a couple shots off and took some breaks. We talked about where my basement was (“Under the house!”) and took peeks the playground out back (theirs is bigger, haha) and watched a few minutes of Jack’s Big Music Show to help us settle in again. Our mini was one of a kind, just like J, B, and Z.
Thank you, Jamie for coming out! It was a pleasure meeting you and your special crew ❤
I knew what I wanted for my little Valentine’s Mini sessions and I set off to Etsy to find it. Aaaaand then I was slapped in the face with price tags of $50+. I’m a budget photographer- not only in that I keep my prices affordable but also I have to watch my bottom line! I decided to give crafting my own heart garlands. I *totally* understand why the Etsy ones are expensive because HOLY CRAP were these time consuming and as any small business owner knows, time is money. So, I spent a few days (seriously) cutting out a little over 100 card stock paper hearts of various sizes and colors. Then, ugh. Sewing. I have a sewing machine because I forgot how much I suck at sewing Shockingly, sewing paper is waaaaaaaay easier than sewing fabric.
Here’s a little peek into how I spent my time 😀
(yes, that would be my darling husband’s hand threading the machine for me)

I will be taking a limited number of Valentine’s mini sessions in my small home studio in Sagamore Hills 🙂 I’m making a heart backdrop similar to the above ^^ so keep that in mind when you think about what to dress your little one in!
