Last weekend my wife’s good friend Anna asked if I could provide a photo booth shoot at her daughter’s 6th birthday party. It was a bit last minute (my wife forgot to tell me until the night before!), but because I’d never done something like this, I leapt at the chance and said yes. I’m glad I did because it was really good fun. The children were queuing up all afternoon with various different props, from wigs and moustaches to police helmets and truncheons!
The constant stream of children didn’t leave much room for creativity so I only had time for one lighting setup (2 softboxes, front on, with a cloud background). However, the fun being had by the children more than made up for it and this is evident from all the smiles in the resulting photos.
I’d definitely recommend a photo booth shoot to other parents considering it. If you have a child that loves dressing up with friends, and this is of interest, then please get in touch. If you’re one of the parents who’s child attended Lara’s party, the password protected album is here and Anna has the password. Enjoy!
