photo booth valentines

Posted on: 2/13/13

my absolute favorite kinds of cards to give out on holidays are photo cards. i think it's great to give something personal and it's always fun to get creative with our pictures! this year we did a homemade photo booth for our valentines and i think they turned out so cute. this is a pretty easy set up too!

first, naomi and i cut a bunch of little hearts out of mini origami paper and taped them to a section of white wall that gets good natural light:

we positioned an ottoman in front of our heart wall for the kids to sit on. i took the photos using the vsco app on my iphone. i loosely directed the photos by just asking for at least one nice smile from each kid and letting them pick the tone for the rest, which means their pics largely represent their individual style. which i love! 

of course, we had outtakes...

but we narrowed it down to four favorites of each person and arranged them in frames using the picframe app, also on my phone. i loaded them into a word document on the computer to arrange them to look like photo strips you would get from a booth. then printed on cardstock (i was out of photo paper), cut them out, and voila! photo strip valentines.

they're so cute, i think i'll leave them up on my wall for a bit!
