GONE are the days when smiley group shots will suffice for photographs at family occasions.
Giant props boxes containing dress-up gems such as taches, hats, signs, glasses, masks and more are now all the rage at weddings and parties.
I attended a christening party at the Isis this weekend where the treasure trove of props were provided by new Sunderland business Proptastic. You can hire boxes of props and backdrops from the company to inject a sense of humour and fun into your photos.
Us guests, especially the kids, had a whale of a time digging through the boxes to see what we could pose with next.
