A Valentine’s Tradition: DIY Photobooth Pics

We’ve been making these Valentine’s Day Card since 2011. (Here’s 2012 and 2013).  They are super simple and easy to make.

For best results, make sure your backdrop is clutter free or monochromatic.  A blank white wall is ideal.

You don’t need that much space either.  There’s this small section of blank unobstructed wall in our bedroom between the dresser and the door that I use to take a lot of their photos.  Our bedroom is tiny. I have to sit on bed to take their photos.

Then snap away. Lately they’ve developed a fake-smile-for-the-camera-smile. To try to capture more natural smiles and expressions I engage them in conversation while I’m snapping away (using my iPhone 4S).

48 frames later, I choose five favorites and edit them in lightroom (using Get Totally Rad’s Replichrome Film Presets)

To create the photobooth strip, use my DIY Project No. 4 Photobooth Templates (it’s a free download!). Print and cut, then add them to a blank card (the photobooth template also includes a simple card template).

I love this! So cute!

I love this idea! I was thinking of doing a photo booth with my kids but I think I just over thought it for style. Great tradition!

thanks for nice sharing
