With Valentine’s Day in two days it’s time to think about special gifts for loved ones. Why not give them a gift they can treasure for a long time? Although chocolate covered strawberries are always sweet photography lasts a lot longer. Last Mother’s Day I teamed up with three of my nephews to make a gift for their mom & grandma. I told them we’d be making a secret message in their photographs that you could only see when we finished the present. They each got some one-on-one time before the camera & the oldest couldn’t wait to tell everyone what the secret message was. Add a pretty frame & the total cost of the gift was only about $10/person. The boys had a blast thinking it was a game & their mom loved it! Can you see the “secret” message?
Use photos you already have or take new ones to give a photo gift to someone special. Get creative: add props or put some Valentine’s Day wrapping paper on the wall for a budget-friendly backdrop.
