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!

Like I said earlier, this writing thing seemed to come out of nowhere.
Are you nuts?
Let's be honest, most of us can say there was at least one moment in your life where you've wondered; Am I nuts? it could have been an obsession about something, prolonged sadness, extreme sensitivity or the " Why can't I just get over this" nagging question.
