Something about Valentines these last few years has really got me loving this holiday. It’s just a fun time to embrace all the pinks and reds and spread some love! This year I decided to make our Valentines a little more personal. Grandpas and Grandma’s always enjoy getting pics of the grandkids and since we always sent out Valentines boxes to our families I decided this would be a perfect opportunity to combined the two. I put together this SUPER easy valentines backdrop and did a little Valentines shoot!

I also wanted to do something for Eric that would be a little more personal so since I had a backdrop all ready any I did a fun little flip book for Eric to have to take with him on business trips to remind him that I love him

Also as a little tip/side not, I think we all know that sometimes it’s impossible to get perfect lighting for indoors. Either we don’t have good, natural lighting in our house or it’s hard to take pictures at the right time for lighting. To solve this problem sometime if I know I’m going to be doing a lot of pictures I will rent a light. If you live in Utah I’ve found this great place that you can rent camera equipment for pretty cheap, so nice to work with and they have pickup locations in Salt Lake, Draper and Orem so it’s super convenient! It’s Acme Camera Company. I get the Lowel Rifa 44 or 66 light kit which is only around $20 a day.
