Valentine’s Mini Session – Oh My This Was Fun!

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and you know what that means! Lot’s of red hearts, candy, love, flowers, and the cutest family photos you could ever ask for!

This is my first year doing a Valentine’s Mini Session and I am so glad that I decided to do it. I booked out StudioStudio in Ann Arbor (see my post about indoor locations for more info on this great space) for a few hours on a Sunday morning, expecting dreary winter light, but ended up with some beautiful sunshine streaming in the big factory windows! I decorated with some heart-shaped balloons, but kept it simple so we could focus on these cute models!

Below are photos from each session, including my own kiddos and their BFFs! But beware, you may experience cuteness overload!

Prepare yourself, there are a lot…

This may have been my favorite mini session to date, and I think it’s because I got to create these fun set ups in addition to taking pictures! I love it and I think I’ll do more!

What mini session should I do next? Mommy & me? St. Patrick’s Day? Let me know what you’d want to book!
