I hope everyone is having a fantastic Easter Sunday. This will be my only work for the day, before I run back into the arms of my family. I’m sure you have plans for dinner or a party of sorts so I thought I would share a fun photographic DIY tip… It’s always important to document family and friends on these occasions since everyone is usually dressed their best, feeling good and let’s face it, it’s rare (at least in my family anyway) to have everyone in one room so make a photo booth. It’s super easy and it’s a great way to collect photos. Take a look around your home and see if you can find a bed sheet, wrapping paper, tissue paper or any extra material laying around. Anything with a cute pattern and a pop of color will work. Next find a well lit wall (anything across from or near a window), tape up or hang your material within that designated area and voila, you’re ready to go. It’s that easy and anyone with a camera phone can use it. You could even compliment it with an accessory or prop box for added fun. It’s a great way to get pictures of the kids AND the adults and it’s fun to watch their imaginations soar within it.
For these portraits, I was asked to create a booth for a three-year old’s birthday party. Mom wanted to have something the kids could warm up to and pose in with their friends. We set up the booth with a pastel spring-like tissue paper. It was a small space however with no natural light available so I used my flash for all of these. Later these images were sent out as gifts, to each family, thanking them for coming to the party. An excellent parting gift in my opinion- low cost, fun, super cute and easy to assemble, that’s my kind of DIY.
Happy Easter everyone!
