A Valentines Photoshoot

I’m not sure what my lova and I have in store to celebrate the day. We’re working opposite shifts, so we’re hoping to meet up for lunch. Otherwise, this little cutie is my Valentine this year.

We cut out hearts and taped them to the wall in my room for a little impromptu photoshoot.

And we took a few photos outside in the dress I purposely made her extra-large last year so she could fit in it again this year if I was too lazy to make a new one (ding ding!)

I noticed one of our photos turned out super cute and would work as one of those Pinteresty-valentine cards since her arms were stretched out. I photoshopped “Happy Valentines Day” sent it to the hour photo lab, got a box of suckers and exacto-knifed the heck out of them last night. TADA!

Excuse the crappy cell phone photo example.

My husband thinks giving photos of yourself for Valentines day is weird but how else will the kids know who it’s from? It’s not like they can read yet.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, Lil’ J’s other pink dress is from Old Navy and her adorable necklace if from Stinkin Cute Dollhouse. I love it, and so does she. I need to get some in spring colors so she’ll be covered for next season.

Happy Valentines Day to you and yours XOXO.

Love it! And the whimsical cards too. So nice! Hope it is a good day for you all. Happy Valentine’s Day!

That is such a cute idea! She is growing up into such a little beauty. Wow. Question: Since you’re such a fashionista when it comes to dressing your daughter… will you re-use outfits if you have another girl? Or will you splurge on all new stuff??

Alice, I definitely plan to reuse a lot of her outfits. I’ve saved them all for that reason (or at least, my favorites). But I will also splurge on new ones regardless 😉

She is the epitome of Valentines cuteness. We love her Vday cards! 🙂

Grace says:

Those pictures are absolutely adorable. How could you not put one of those pics on a Valentine’s Day card. I love it!

Your husband sounds like mine. I think the photo is a great idea. My daughter made everyone cards and she randomly handed them out. Can’t read the names yet. lol

YUMMommy says:

I promise you Lil J gets cuter and cuter with every photo. The cards came out amazing. And I agree that the kids won’t know who their Valentine’s are from because they can’t read and even if the parents read the names to them, some kids have bad memory and need a face to know who you’re talking about.
