I am always on the look out for ways to make photos fun and interesting. Therefore it’s probably no surprise that I was thrilled when I came across Whisker Works. You may have noticed that moustaches and lips on a stick have become pretty popular at wedding photo booths, etc. However, there is no need for these items to only make an appearance at wedding photo booths. What about family photos, children’s photography and even a Valentines photo booth!?!
Whisker Works offers high-quality, durable, long-lasting and sanitary PLASTIC props that are sure to add a hilarious twist to any celebration! They are currently having their 2 year celebration (ends January 31st) and therefore all moustaches and lips are just $5. “LIKE” their facebook page and go to the thank you tab to get your 10% off coupon as well.
I just ordered a set for my family to use for our Valentine photo cards. Fun…you bet!! They even offer Minature Moustaches and Lips for the kids, I know ours are going to love them! If you’re a photographer, consider ordering a set to have on hand. I know they would really come in handy for those not so cooperative children and adults that aren’t interested in having their photo taken. Check out a few photo ideas below as well as my suggestions for setting up a photo booth.
Just for Fun: Consider setting up your own little photo booth at home. I’ll post more about how to do this in a couple of weeks. Thinking of Valentines day? Grab some red and white striped fabric or a neutral background and hang or set up on a wall where you get good natural light. Have a fun little photo shoot at home with the kiddies. You may even get dad to get in on the action!
Having a Valentines Party? Set up the photo booth and take photos of your guests with their moustaches and lips. Sure to be a lot of fun for everyone! Send out the photos as keepsakes to your guests after the party. Your guests will also love looking at an online facebook gallery of moustache pics!
Are you a Photographer: A moustache/ lip set is the perfect addition in your bag of tricks! Consider planning Valentines day mini sessions. Set up a little photo booth and let your clients just have fun! I would suggest contacting a local school and setting up a couple of photo booth days about a week before Valentines day. In the quiet photography months, this could be great advertising/ networking idea for you. Offer the mini sessions at a great rate and consider giving a part of your profits to the school (great fundrasier as well). Make sure you have up to date promotional material to hand out to prospective clients. Some of the best advertising is about creating meaningful connections with people (a little fun doesn’t hurt either).
Getting Married? How about a photo booth?
**Get creative! Add some fun hats, glasses, etc to your prop basket.
Thinking of ordering some moustaches and/ or lips on a stick? Be sure to do so asap in order to receive them in time for Valentines Day!
A big thank you to Whisker Works for creating such fun products and sending over these great photos. I’m looking forward to posting our own moustache/ lip Valentine photos!
