- Add some props, like a teddy bear to the shot.
And BAM, you'll be well on your way to taking some pretty spectacular photos of your newborn(s), toddler(s), or children.
Go out for a date
Depending on where you live, just go out and have some fun with the family. Go to the beach, dress up in some red or pink beachwear; Walk to the park, wear some overalls with a red or pink shirt (too cute); Learn to ice skate, wear a cozy and warm snowsuit. The possibilities are endless! Like a nice dinner, could be great for hubby too.
*Of course take advantage of your phone, whip it out and take some great pictures. It may not seem enticing at first, but when your little one grows and flourishes, these are memories you will cherish forever.
Not your style?
No problem! Kick back at home, take some cute pictures with that phone so you can cherish this day and its memories forever.
On the topic of "forever", you could take your little one to have their precious little hands or feet imprinted for keepsakes too. There are many kits you can find and purchase to do so, there are even ones that can be used as stepping stones outside your house. Too cute, we know.
Whatever you choose to do this Valentine's Day 2019, make sure its filled with love, smiles, and laughter cause with that, you can't go wrong, so don't panic.
