I am taking my Daughter for her Valentines Day pictures this weekend...I have NO idea what kind of ideas to ask the photographer to do. They have a kissing booth but she is too young and small for that, it is aimed more towards toddlers and up. She is almost 5 months. Any ideas??? I have to call and make an appointment tonight. I have a red Minnie Mouse I thought of bringing...

That's cute. 

Pits hard to do "outside of the box" photos when you are going to a place to have them done.. Usually all of the poses are the same...

DH does all of our photography, so I am thankful for that.

Where we take her they are always up for ideas. I generally always have a special costume or whatever. Just for Valentines Day they only have a kissing booth that is adorable....but I don't see anything my Daughter could do with it...lol I have 2 days to come up with ideas. :D

Your baby is so young.. I mean.. People just coo over a cute outfit..lol 

its also hard to do outside of the box when children are so young. If the place usually has good ideas, I'd just go with the flow...

She will look cute in any picture. :)

The red Minnie is cute, although it kinda makes me think of Disney meets Carrie (the horror movie).

Aw babies look cute in any photo,people will coo over her in just a cute outfit...I have been taking my own pictures of my Kids for over 2 years,I used to take them to Picture Me portrait studios since they were newborns,but they got rid of their props and all their backrounds and raised their prices so it kind of sucks :-(..As far as props I hit the Target $1 Bins and find incredibly cute props for less then $1 sometimes,one year for Valentine's day I found these really cute Heart Pillows that said Hug Me on them,we still have the green one my daughter picked out,I always think it's cute to photograoh children with those giant swirky lollipops but considering your daughter is 5 months old not sure if that would work,I have seen some fairly cute photo ideas for Babies,I have seen moms who have their baby photographed looking like Cupid i think it's cute but she's your baby and it's your choice,which studio are you taking her to ?...I do like the idea of the stuffed animal it might keep her occupied during a photo shoot and it's a cute prop.

Kinda like this is what I meant

Not to sound mean but I think the "ALL" red mini mouse will not photo well... it might look like a undefined red blob... this is what I think there is no insult intend just an idea.

I think a VERY big candy box and you can put her in it like a piece of candy or perhaps even use her dress to fill the frame like in the photo below.
