I had so much fun putting together this toddler Valentines day photoshoot. I wanted fun and cute holiday photos of my kids, but didn’t want to spend a lot of money. I started to learn how to do it myself and thought I would share how I did it. I included all props and outfits I used to make this happen. You can see all the details below!
I didn’t know anything about photography a couple years ago and started to learn on my own to save money. I started to share some of the things I learned here on my blog. Check out more of my DIY photoshoot tips HERE.
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
This was one of the easiest backdrop set up I have done for a photoshoot. I always say the backdrop is the most important part to a photo. It really makes it all come together. If you don’t want to get this backdrop I used in this photo try using a white sheet or a blank wall.
This backdrop is a 4X8 wall panel from Lowes. It cost $14 a sheet and I had them cut it down to 4X5. I went to a lot of different home improvement stores and Lowes was the only store to have natural looking wooden wall panels with lots of different options. You can check the wall panels at Home Depot and Lowes to get the option you want for a 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.
