Here are 10 inspiring ideas to get you thinking about options for a unique Valentine photo shoot with your kids. All non-candy ideas!
Holidays are the perfect excuse to go take some beautiful photos to show off: you just need the right caption! Most of these examples were not created for Valentine’s Day and don’t actually include my captions, but hopefully they provide a starting point for the type of picture you could take and then add a sweet caption. Go take some memorable pictures of your kids!
10 Captions to Inspire a Unique Valentine Photo (Non- Candy!)
1. You Make My Heart Bounce!
I’ve always wanted to do some purposeful jumping on the bed, with a camera nearby. How cute would these be with a little caption that said “you make my heart bounce!”
2. I’ve Got My Eye On You
If you have access to a fisheye lens, get up close and personal with your child’s eye! This picture are just example of what a fisheye shot would look like, but I think this could be super cute in a stylized situation, with your child wearing a red/pink shirt and plenty of Valentine’s decorations around them. (Have an iPhone? The Olloclip has a fisheye lens!)

The crazy straw idea could also work as a valentine to hand out, much like the lollipop idea posted here. It’s a different type of Valentine than most of this post, but it’s still really cute!

8. I Get a Kick Out of You!
Does your little one love to play? Make sure you capture that!
9. You Blow Me Away!
There’s a couple of different ways you could do these – just a picture with a pinwheel, or find the tutorial for a3D pinwheel valentine here. You could use “You Blow Me Away” or “You Take My Breath Away” or even “Spin Me Around, Valentine!”

pin source this example is summery but you could do this in a pretty long sleeve dress as well!
10. Have a Wand-erful Valentine’s Day!
Do you have a girl who loves to dress up as a princess? Or maybe she’s enthralled with fairies? Let her dress up in the entire outfit, complete with wand, and go take some magical pictures of this time in her life!
