Valentine's Hearts

This past Christmas I took a photograph of my dog in which I turned the lights from the Christmas trees into paw prints. It turned out so cute that I wanted to try it again for Valentine's Day. I didn't have a Christmas tree still up and I needed only red Christmas lights, instead of white or multi-colored. Finding strands of only red lights in stores over a month after Christmas was no easy feat!

Also like at Christmas I used my favorite crafting tool, the Bowdabra, to create a bow for Colby to wear. I had made huge bows for the presents in my Christmas set, and for this Valentine's portrait I knew I wanted to make a large red bow for her like you'd see on a new car in a Lexus commercial. The whole thing turned out pretty cute! I took this photograph in our basement. She was so captivated by the treats my husband was shaking that she never even looked over at me. She still holds the title as the most difficult dog to photograph, ever. She is like a cartoon character whose eyes turn into spirals whenever food comes out! She's my sweet girl and I'm happy to have to model for me.

The theme this week in the 52-week dog photography challenge was Love. Be sure to check out everyone's takes on the Love theme. Up next is Kim with BARKography based in Charlotte NC. Keep clicking through and you'll wind up back here!

Pink Valentine's Day Facebook timeline

One of the newer products Browning Photo is offering is a Facebook timeline. All the major holidays are in the works, so hang tight! I can't wait to show you all the neat designs when those are ready. Some samples will use photos from previous shoots and some samples are woefully in need of the perfect picture that just hasn't been taken yet!

This is one of the latest Facebook timelines I put together. Justine was a fabulous client that I featured in a previous blog post (click to open a new window and see her lovely self).

I love the pink stripes of this - I have always thought that stripes are so classy and timeless, and the pink is a little softer and sweeter than red for this holiday. Justine wore the cutest pink puffer vest at our session, and I thought her photos would look great in a Valentine's Day banner for her mama's timeline on Facebook. Plus the pink chevron washi tape across the tops of the pictures gives the whole thing a modern twist, since washi tape is all the rage lately. I could spend hours looking at all the washi tape at Michael's crafts. I didn't know it had a name until recently, so there you have it!

Now if you know this family, their last name isn't really Smith, but I put that on this mock-up just to share on the internet. It also has the Browning Photo watermark in white in the bottom right corner. Squint and you can see it! The timeline I delivered has their real last name and no watermark so their friends won't be confused about who the Smiths are. To protect identities I either use only first names or sometimes first name and last initial on the website. Or I give them a new last name entirely!

Want this XOXO Valentine's Day timeline on your Facebook? Contact Browning Photo now! Just a warning, your friends may pester you to find out who your photographer is!!
