Megan’s Valentine photos are just TOO cute for words. I loved her pictures and Valentine’s Day photo shoot tradition so much, I just had to get some Valentine’s Day inspired photos of my own little guy. This Valentine’s Day has such a special meaning for me! It is our first ever with our sweet lil’ bubba. How was I blessed enough to get TWO handsome fellas to spend a day dedicated to love with? A wonderful hubby and a beautiful healthy baby boy. I mean life…is…good.
To celebrate this oh so special year, I set up a Valentine’s Day photo shoot with the incredibly talented photographer Niki Schmidt. In an effort to be prepared, I contacted her prior to our session to confirm the color palette and theme for the shoot. Red, black, and white were on the agenda, as well as incorporating newspaper print. Now, how fun is that?
One of my favorite parts about the photoshoot was picking out my lil’ dude’s attire! I scored an adorable newsie cap from Amazon – now who doesn’t love a baby in a newsie???? And I paired it with an equally adorable tattooed inspired Mom shirt from Gymboree. (Similar styles found here.) Because let’s get real – I AM his ONLY Valentine for a VERY long time, right? Sorry, girls. This Mama will be holding on tight to this guy for a forever and a day. HAHA! As for the rest of his outfit, he already had jeans and argyle socks in his dresser. And VOILA! The cutest newsie in the world was ready for his shoot!
After I saw how great the pics from our Valentine’s Day photo shoot turned out, knew they would make a perfect gift, so I surprised my husband and gave him the pictures as an early Valentine’s Day present. He was SO surprised and absolutely adored them. Gifts from the heart truly are the BEST. So, thank you Megan for the inspiration for such a fun gift idea and photo shoot. So, what do you have planned to show your loved ones how special they are to you this year? I would love to hear your ideas!
