Siebert Family Photo Booth

Well, the Siebert family didn't get into the photo booth as much as the Dolan side did...but we forced them to pose for some pictures anyway.

Dolan Family Christmas Fun

Photo Booth Fun

The other day, my friend, Emily, came over and we had some fun with the Christmas photo booth I set up for our family get togethers this year.

I think she's checking me out in this one... ( I know, I'm a pretty cute, near-sighted elf).

I think I was a little too excited about this lollipop...

Jerry got in on the fun!  (Though it doesn't look like he was having fun)

My friend, Stacy, dropped by yesterday and I made her take a couple of pictures with me.

I can always count on Jerry to model for me

I finally bought a backdrop stand and my mom generously bought me a backdrop as an early Christmas present.  Why did I decide to buy a backdrop stand?  Well, I've done a few photo/video shoots this year that would have been a lot easier had I had a backdrop.  Also, for our family get togethers this Christmas, I've made a bunch of fun photo props (thank you Pinterest for giving me the idea) and thought it'd be best to take the photos in front of a backdrop.  Plus, now when somebody turns to me and says, "hey, you're a photographer, where's the best place to take a photo?" I can say, how about in front of that backdrop over there?  I'm hoping my family will get into the props/picture taking.

As always, my dog had to step in as my model as I tested out the backdrop and lighting.  (Please ignore any wrinkles in the backdrop, I haven't ironed it yet...)

Here is Jerry modeling a pair of glasses (yes, this is one of the props)...isn't he adorable?

I tried to get Jerry closer to the tree for a picture, but he isn't the most cooperative model.

That's a little better... didn't get a lot of the tree in the shot, but you can see the ornament from my first Christmas :)
