I’ve been photographing kids for Valentine’s Day for the past several years, but this year’s mini took on a new twist. My kids had fun! I usually do have fun with the kids I photograph, but MY kids get the camera in their faces all of the time. It is not as much fun for them, as it is almost a job. This year, even though I had assigned photo times, we ended up throwing them out the window and letting the kids interact with each other. They all know each other, and are friends. Not only did we end up with some great individual shots for Classroom Cards, but we had some great BFF shots and sibling shots. I turned on the music and let the kids be the DJ. They had a blast! My favorite time was when I was starting to photograph one of my daughters. She was still not quite into getting her photo taken. The other sister, who was totally into it, jumped in with some epic photobomb maneuvers. I’ve attached some of the fun captures from that moment. The best payment I had for this day was at the end of the day, after everyone had gone, and my daughter said, “That was fun, Mom!”
Update! I’ve decided to offer different choices for your valentines. Your 15 minute session will allow you to choose images from 5-7 of the best images from an online gallery for either 50 single design wallet cards, 30 single design bookmarks (additional sets of 5 will be available to purchase), or 32 multi-design wallet cards (additional sets of 16 will be available to purchase). There will also be 5×7 flat cards available to purchase. As always, you will also get low res, watermarked digital of any images you choose which will be suitable for sharing online but not for printing. You will receive 25% off of products and prints. Up to 2 additional children may be added for an additional $25 each. Each will get a set of Valentine’s Cards and a 5×7. View the Valentine’s templates here.
