If you’re planning a little Valentine’s Day photoshoot with your kiddos, here is some awesome inspiration!

Each holiday I love taking a few fun, themed photographs of my little ones. Valentine’s Day is one of my favorites because I love the bright red and pink colors. And who doesn’t love balloons, conversation hearts and sweet treats?

Valentine Photo Ideas – Chalkboard

I thought we would start with the Valentine Day chalk board idea.  The first photo in this article shows heart shaped thought bubbles which is pretty cute.

Valentine Photo Ideas – Balloons

It is pretty cute how a simple prop like some heart shaped balloons can totally make a photoshoot special and feel more Valentine-y.  I love the sweet soft colors in this Valentine photo.

Red balloons and a bowtie standing in the countryside is a really cute Valentine photoshoot idea for just about any age child.  Check out the cool photos from this photoshoot by MCP Actions.

Another idea I thought was super cute was to use a bunch of balloons as a place for a group of kids to look.  The photo results are adorable…

Another way to use balloons is to make the child part of the balloon bouquet.  I thought this one was a great idea for kids of all ages.
