Grand Photo of the Week: Photo Booth Fun

By February 27, 2013

Follow me on:

Create excitement with a homemade photo booth and get some great photographs of the grandkids, too.

To recreate the fun of photo booths at home, you could build a booth, but you really just need a backdrop and a few accessories. Sarah of the crafting blog A Little of This, A Little of That created a special spot for a Valentine photo shoot. She painted an old picture frame bright red, picked up some props at a craft store and pinned some fabric to a wall. She photographed her kids' play group; her own kids insisted that she keep the "booth" up for days.

I'm always looking for fun ideas for photographing the grandchildren, and this one's a winner. I might even throw a photo booth party.

What's your favorite photo accessory? Is it the boa or the sunglasses or a fake mustache? Leave a comment below.

The closet toy box held delights for the grandchildren and we were forever photographing them in wigs and clothing from the box as well and filming their many puppet shows.

Hats! I have helped out taking pictures at Amara’s school events a few times and kids love hats! Christmas hats, cowboy hats — any hat is fun!

I saw one of those old photo booths at a mall recently. I poked my head in to see how much it cost because I thought the grandkids might think it was fun. It was $5, which I thought was too much so we talked about it and kept going. I like this idea better.
