Shannon and I both at the same time said ” let’s have some people over tonight after the kids go to bed”. Thumbs up from both of us sent the plans into full sail. Besides I had been itching to try a photobooth after being inspired by a photo stylists blog who I am learning from! She posted about the DIY Christmas Photobooth. I learned about Alexis @ AVE styles through Promise Tangeman who was also part of the DIY Photobooth. Her blog has been really inspiring to me!
They ended up being a lot tackier than I had planned. But better than I imagined. I love the pure fun. And I love that I got to have a ” just for fun” shopping spree to the dollar tree!
This is the point where i am not sure if I should claim having assisted with styles and prop development. Hmm. The girls got some amazing laughs while watching our guys. It almost seemed more like a therapy photo shoot? Maybe unleashing all the holiday frustrations? It was fun to say the least.
Next time I will probably make the backdrop a little bigger. Thanks to Bethany for having the final vision for the backdrop! Thanks to Sarah for providing the Equipment and taking most of the pics. I encourage you all to check out Sarah’s account of the Photobooth here. I am so very thankful for dear friends and precious sisters and brother- in-laws!
Fun is quite Therapeutic! I have to admit I was fighting the thoughts that said ” come on this is silly, you need to spend your time and energies on more productice things”. That’s the non- risk taking fear- filled adult that sometimes rears it’s ugly head in my mind. I fight it with all I have ! I hope these photos put a little smile on your face!

Perspective: I didn't even see him take it!
All I remember was that my iphone was sitting on the console between the driver and passenger seats, how he grabbed it? - I don’t know.
The " Goo"
I can remember October days when I had a room full of kindergartners in my care and I often imagined what it would be like to have my own.
