V-day Outtake

So this Sunday I decided to try my hand at some do-it-yourself Valentines for Sophie to give out to her class. I found a giant heart shaped lollipop at the dollar spot at Target (love that section by the way) and thought it would make the perfect prop. I did not, however, think about how messy and sticky a giant lollipop would be. I snapped off 30 shots until I decided that I couldn't take it anymore. Steven was suppose to be on wet paper towel duty but instead he laughed. Lotta good that did. I did manage to get a few good ones, just not exactly what I had in mind. Maybe I'll get crazy enough this weekend to try again. Here's an outtake. (and I have to admit that I had a few licks of that baby and it is goooooood, probably blew 3 points doing that!)

If Sophie didn't end up with the big sucker stuck to her shirt, your shirt or in her hair, I'm impressed. I like the Valentine shirt.

That's so funny...I've had this vision of a lollipop pic almost just like that...I haven't been brave enough to try it!

The picture turned out adorable!

You are very brave using the sticky sucker as a prop. Cute pictures. You rock Kim.
