A Spin on the Easter Photo

DIY Photobooth Inspiration and Ideas
Crystal Osborne

When my brother and I were little, Easter always meant Easter clothes and a picture. There would be egg hunts and baskets but my mom loved the pictures. My brother and I, not so much we wanted to play.  I wish she had thought to have a photo booth with props. We could play and get some cute pictures, instead of sour faced kids that wouldn’t hold still.
I have hunted around the web to find some neat inspirations for diy photo booths. Some you could enlist the help of kids for the props and such. I hope you enjoy!

Starting with some photo ideas and backdrops, then some banners and props, with links to more info and the source of the image.

Cute and easy.

Then you could add Easter or spring centric items, like easter lilies or other bright flowers, eggs, bunnies, baskets, peeps in jars, etc to fill in the booth.
