Every parent says the same – “the time goes too quickly”, “they grow up too fast”, “I wish we’d taken more photos…”. Well, with just a couple of weeks left of the summer break, why don’t you arm your children with some printable photo props, grab your camera and find a suitable location to make some silly late summer fun memories that you can preserve alongside holiday pictures in your family scrapbook…?
Two posts on websites with suitable celebratory titles are Hip Hip Hooray’s DIY Photo Booth Ideas & Free Printable Props and Oh Happy Day’s Photobooth Props DIY and Free Printable.
Written for people deciding between a DIY or rental photo booth for their wedding, party or event, Hip Hip Horray’s post gives lots of ideas for various backdrops for your modelling session (love the picture frames hanging from a tree!) as well as providing a moustache and lips props free printable.
Oh Happy Day’s props are designed so you can “cut loose and get silly” and include a top hat, Batman mask, bunny ears and “that” hat from Kate and Will’s wedding and they’ve even involved the family pet in their photoshoot!
Combining a celebratory title, a love of photography and the spirit of the season is Kristen Duke on Capturing Joy’s Summer Photo Booth Props (Free Printables) where you can find a photo booth sign, snorkel mask and ice cream cone.

Once your children are bored of decorating their own faces and posing for their close-ups, why not extend the activity by letting them design some crazy faces too?
