{I Moustache You to Be Mine} Seattle Area Lifestyle Photographer

I love coming up with cute Valentines idea for my kids, when they’re in an amicable mood for a photoshoot.

I love coming up with cute Valentines idea for my kids, when they’re in an amicable mood for a photoshoot. I had seen some really cute moustache themed Valentines stuff on Pinterest lately, mainly ones that said “I (moustache) you to be my valentine” and thought HEY! I can do that! I already had felt moustaches on hand, so I cut out hearts from felt I had in the craft room, then bribed my youngest with jelly beans, and trundled off into the backyard for a quick photoshoot. Yes, there’s glitter all over his coat, and his hat is missing a pom pom, but his smile is contagious, and I think the pictures came out pretty cute.

 

Do you know this face? I call this “four year old CHEESE” face. Maybe you’ve seen this face too, on your child.

I asked him to hold his hands over his heart. He held it over his stomach and told me, “I love my tummy more”

Sometimes, the outtakes are the best part about a photoshoot.

Jon Cusack, eat your heart out. I thought about photoshopping a radio, or some rain in the photo, but thought the face and the posture said it all.

{Paper Heart Valentines} Seattle Area Lifestyle Photographer

February is just around the corner, and with that comes one of my favorite holidays, Valentines Day! I was looking for some fun crafts to do with the boys, and came across this paper heart craft from Roots and Wings. Theirs seemed a little more work than my boys could handle (aka it looks more mom intensive than boy intensive), so I tweaked it a bit. I used old magazines papers, and had the boys tear out any that were red or reddish colored for them to cut up to use. Then, we cut them up into strips, and used a ribbon instead of a brad to hold it together in the middle. I think it came out very well, and adds a pretty decoration to our home!

 

Concentrating very hard, the sparkly cape gave him super cutting powers.

You want to end up with different lengths of paper (I chose three different lengths for the boys)

To make it easier for them, I placed a ribbon down the middle of the paper heart to help attach it, instead of using brads. The other paper sides would go on the other side of the ribbon.

The other side (yes, it does look exactly the same). You sandwich them together with the ribbon in the middle, smallest lengths closest to the ribbon.

Then, I had them staple the bottom of ALL the paper strips to the ribbon, and then fold the strips up (shortest strips first) into a heart shape onto the ribbon and staple it. Repeat with the longer lengths.

This was a super easy project! We then hung them on crepe paper around the house as decorations. So pretty!

A close up. I loved using the recycled papers to give the hearts a unique look.

Our garland! You can see we made some with construction paper as well. It was really fun, and an easy craft for both the boys!

This week’s challenge at I Heart Faces is, appropriately enough, Hearts. I think this is one of my favorite shots of the boys ever. The background is just an old red fleece blanket I  had them lie down on. I love how their hands and toes just touch. Click on the link, or the camera […]
