Photo Booth!

So, I was setting up for my valentine's party on Thursday, when I randomly came up with the idea to do a photo booth for the kids! I have seen them all over the place at birthdays and weddings especially! I couldn't believe that I hadn't thought of it before! I knew it would be SUPER fun for the kiddos to do at the party!  I had only about 15 more minutes after thinking of the idea to prepare before the kids came back from specials. Since this wasn't preplanned I didn't have all the fun props to go with it. BUT I did have time to make a quick back drop! 

I forgot to take a pic of just the backdrop on my door...So you'll just have see it with the kids!

Here are some pics of the kids having a blast with the photo booth!






At the end of the day, I uploaded all of the pictures to Powerpoint and saved it as a PDF for the parents.. This is how I sent it to them once it was done. I ended up with about 9 whole pages in a PDF for them to glance through.



It was a big hit with the kids. Since they had so much fun with a simple background...I CAN imagine the fun they'll have with all the extra props!

Next time, I plan on getting ALL the fun props from the dollar store..like a boa, many different style glasses, anything I can find!...  :) I'm already super excited for our next party! :)

I would definitely recommend a photo booth at ANY party!

I hope y'all are enjoying your Sunday!

  3. Carly,
    I am so glad we are following each other! This post is fantastic! You are quite the photographer! I love how you share the photos with the parents! I have a small private website just for parents and that is how I share. I would love to do it as a PDF and send directly to parents emails instead!
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank ya! I'm sure I could've done much better for my backdrop and created some props, but with such a short amount of time, I am happy with what I got... work in progress :) :)
