Every month, I host an event in the community just for fun. For January, I wanted to do something a little more elaborate and special, so I rented a photobooth from The Entertainment Playground. I collaborated with Phil, the owner of Dooby’s Coffee, for an event space, and before I knew it, everything was set!
I brought two boxes of props to Dooby’s, grabbed a delicious snack, and waited for people to come hang out! I wasn’t the only one eating, though! Look at these lovely faces, taking over the table!
Some people brought their own props, which was great! I was really glad to see how excited people got.
Some of the best “story” ideas for the photos were from Jessica. Check out how she turns me into a unicorn!
We were running around like crazy when our time was about to run out, but I came home with more than forty photo strips, and those are just the ones you guys let me keep! If you have scans of strips I don’t have, I’d love to see them! My original plan was to tape extras in my red notebook, but in all honesty, we were too occupied with gas masks, tiaras, and feather boas. As it should be.
At one point, I looked down at the floor and saw all these props spread around haphazardly. I realized the room was full of beautiful and fun people who braved the freezing temperatures to be silly with me. It’s what I’ve always wanted my life to be, and I realized that I created it. That night was a dream, and I’m so glad that it’s turning into my job.
Below is a slideshow of the strips I have. You can also browse the album on Facebook or Photobucket.
Thanks to all the brave photo takers: Charlotte, Matt, Jessica, Ashley, Geraldine, Jason, Olivia, April, Sean, Elizabeth, Alan, Allison, Ally, Shannon, Tony, Sandy, my dad, Susan, Odell, and their kids.

I never even thought to make stories out of photobooth pictures! That’s such a cool idea! I’m so happy for you that you’re finally getting to make a career out of making people smile and laugh.
Awe, Mary, you’re the best! Everybody seems to have had such a fun time :p.
PHIL THANK YOU FOR BEING AWESOME.
Omg, it looks like you all had so much. I say this every time you have an event but I really wish I could have been there.
