Valentines Day Photoshoot Props

You don’t need a lot of props for this Valentines day photoshoot. The only props are the heart balloons you hang up on the backdrop and the wooden boxes the boys sit on.

Valentines Day Photoshoot Outfits

I wanted to keep things simple for this Valentines day photoshoot. I thought it would be cute to do a simple white button up shirt with suspenders and jeans. I wish I had black converse because that would have been adorable touch to the outfit. I think the outfit turned out pretty cute!

Valentines Day Photoshoot Backdrop

I used packing tape to attach the balloons to the backdrop. This tape worked best and the balloons never fell down during the photoshoot. I started by placing them from top to bottom, but halfway through I had to move the balloons down. So when you place them on the backdrop start from the bottom up. I had too much space on the bottom half. Star the balloons almost at the floor.

Here is a time lapse of me putting the backdrop together and taking the photos of the boys. It really was such a simple photoshoot and something you can easily do at home.
