Baby’s first Valentine’s Day photo card
One of the best reasons to take pictures of your little one for Valentine’s Day is so that you can turn that image into a card! From simple photo cards to cards that take a bit more DIY elbow grease, these ideas will let you share your tiniest Valentine with your closest friends and family.
Professional photo card
Creating a professional-looking card at home doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming. Plus, you can get in on the action with this card idea!
Choose your favorite image of you and your baby and add it to a Valentine’s themed card. There are tons of formats and ideas to choose from online.
Then, just address them to all your friends and family. They’ll love having an image of mother and baby together!
Photo booth card
If you’ve got your little ones all dressed up, why not take a few snapshots for your Valentine’s card? This cute idea makes it look like you spent some time in a photo booth!
The best part about this idea is that it can be modified depending on how many children you have. Your baby can lay next to the cards, or you can get two or more children in on the action by having them hold the ‘we love you’ signs.
Baby footprint card
Those little munchkins grow up so fast! Photos are a great way to document just how fast your child grows. Nothing is treasured more than your baby’s footprints as a token of his childhood.
This cute card is cut in the shape of a heart. One side contains an adorable picture of your little one, while the other side features both of his footprints in the shape of a heart.
Write ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ on the front and a personal message on the back to make the card even more special.
Who needs clothing?
There are tons of cute outfit ideas, and we’ll share a couple with you later on the list, but who needs clothing when you’re a baby! Here are a few cute ideas that scrap the idea of making your kid wear clothes.
These ideas were particularly adorable for newborns and babies under one year old.
Covered in kisses
Chances are, you spend a good chunk of time smooching your precious baby all over the place, so why not use a little lipstick and turn it into a cute photo opportunity? Different colored lipsticks make this image, even more, fun, while a neutral background ensures that all those kisses are front and center.
There’s no doubt that your little one is an angel sent from above, so why not turn him or her into an angel for Valentine’s Day? With those cute little buns showing, the feathery angel wings somehow become even more adorable!
Create a background that is decorated with hearts and you’ve got a treasured image that the whole family will love.
Take those wings and go one step further to turn your little one into cupid! A simple bow and arrow with a red heart-shaped tip are all it takes to transform your baby into the little cherub of love.
All dressed up
Your baby probably spends most of the day in a onesie, pants, and shirts that can easily be changed and washed when they get dirty. The holidays, especially when you’re taking pictures, are the perfect time to play dress up!
Here are a few photo ideas that allow your little one to get fancy for a fun photo shoot.
Snazzy in a suit
Turn your little pumpkin into a handsome man by having him wear a snazzy suit in his pictures! After all, there’s nothing more adorable than a baby wearing adult clothing!
If you’re looking for a bit of a relaxed look, opt to have your baby wear the tie without all the fuss of a shirt or vest. Either way, he’s sure to look absolutely adorable.
Cute in a tutu
Few things in life are cuter than a baby girl in a big fluffy tutu! In keeping with the Valentine’s Day theme, choose a tutu in red, pink, or white. Finish the look with an adorable headband, and you have a Valentine’s keepsake that you can treasure forever.
The sweet shop
Valentine’s Day may be about love, but it’s also about sweets! Why not have a little fun with this theme by dressing up your little one as a chef and creating a cute baking scene?
With a little crafting know-how, you can create a scene with red, pink, and white accessories. A bowl full of flour, a wooden spoon, and a chalkboard finishes the look.
Don’t forget the chef’s hat!
Sometimes, keeping things simple is the best way to ensure you get the perfect shot, especially if you’re stuck indoors, and you aren’t getting help from a professional photographer. When it comes to Valentine’s Day baby photo ideas, it doesn’t get any easier than hearts!
Less is more when it comes to this cute picture. Catch your baby while he or she is sleeping and mold their hands into a pretty heart.
It may take a few tries, but this image is the perfect minimalist option for Valentine’s Day.
Surrounded by sweets
Why not use a little bit of that Valentine’s candy to create the perfect snapshot of your baby? Spread out a bunch of those little heart-shaped candies and take a few pictures of your child. Just be sure he doesn’t grab one to eat!
There isn’t an easier or quicker way to create the perfect backdrop for your little Valentine!
Flower petal heart
Flowers are a traditional Valentine’s Day gift, so why not use them to create a cute picture opportunity for your little one? Simply sprinkle rose petals in the shape of a heart around your baby.
Use real rose petals from your local floral shop, or visit the craft store and purchase silk rose petals. Choose red, white, and pink petals to keep with the Valentine’s Day theme.
There’s no question that the ideas on this list are absolutely adorable, but none of them will cause your friends and family to say aww like these pictures!
Create an adorable kissing booth and get your little one ready to make a bunch of money. After all, who wouldn’t pay a dollar for a smooch from your cute little munchkin!
Flying into town
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Valentine’s Day baby!
By creating a backdrop that your little one can lay on, you can make it look like a bunch of heart-shaped balloons are lifting him or her up off the ground!
Treasure this Valentine’s Day forever
