hey there! I'm monica 

I pride myself on making amazing style and design accessible for everyone, regardless of location, budget, or ability! My design philosophy is rooted in authenticity + attainability - If I can do it, you can too! My work has been featured in countless publications, but I take the most pride in homeowners that have been personally inspired by my DIY ideas and have tried something in their own homes!

learn more about ME + MY BIZ

Last Fall my sister, Chrissie, and her family moved here from Indiana. She had gone out there for college, (Taylor University) and ended up staying out there for 10 years. We are only 18 months apart and have always been extremely close, so the distance was not fun at all. I have another sister, Rachel, who is older than me, and the three of us are very best friends. I LOVE having my sisters close by. It is such a blessing to us, and our kids! Watching the cousins grow up together is super fun, and I can’t wait to see how they interact as they get older. Anyway, all that to say I love that Chrissie is lives only 10 minutes away. And even more so now that she and her husband have started a new business that is beyond cool. Introducing…
 

You know those photobooths at the beach that are always so much fun? I’ve actually posted about my love for them here, so as soon as they mentioned their idea, I was totally on board. Race Street Photobooth offers a full-blown, portable professional photobooth that adds a fun and exciting activity for any group of people, anywhere. I’ll get to that later, but first meet Chrissie and her husband, Kirk:
Adorable, right? Last Sunday they let Monica and I mess around with some fun props to try out the photobooth, and let me tell you, there were some hilarious, hideous, cute and crazy photos that came as a result!
We both couldn’t get over how clear the pictures are (I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since the camera they use-Canon Rebel T3i DSLR- is better than mine), and how quickly they were printed off. Seriously, in under one minute we had two copies of our photostrip (one for her and one for me!), which would be awesome at, let’s say a wedding, because the bride and groom could keep one copy and the guests could take one copy home with them.
Aren’t we so sophisticated in that first picture? Why yes, yes we are, thankyouverymuch. The photos can be printed in black & white, which is my personal favorite, or in color with a choice of a white or red background. Monica’s going to kill me for this next one, but I couldn’t resist:
Ok, I take back the sophisticated thing. We’re dorks.
I could sit in the booth for hours and not get bored. Not that I have done that….yet. Race Street Photobooth serves the greater Philly area, and New Jersey. We’re thinking of having them bring their photobooth into our neighborhood on Halloweenl so all the kids can get pictures in their costumes. Wouldn’t that be fun? Honestly, the options are endless with this thing and will make any event memorable. For more information about their packages, check out their website.
Plus, they’re offering a special for EC2 readers!
Mention EC215 to receive 15% off the package of your choice!
So….What event do you have coming up that needs a photobooth? 😉

    Hey! Love your blog, and love your DIY ideas…but one question – how far into Jersey are they willing to go? We are in Bergen County, NJ…

    I’ll have to refer them to any Wedding Clients that want Photo Booths!!

  3. Thanks for the feature, girls!

    You had me at Indiana! I’m a Hoosier at heart and moved to the Seattle area a dozen years ago, but miss my IN time. I have several friends who went to Taylor and my cousin and pastor that married us actually played football for them years ago. I was considering applying but they had an essay you had to write and that was a deal breaker! Small world! Love that you have your sister close now!

    • It is a small world! Chrissie LOVED Taylor and has nothing but good things to say about it. She definitely misses Indiana, but I like to think having us near by makes it worth it. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

    Eli’s cousin just had one of these at their wedding – it was SO fun! (I actually had Nathan tell Eli’s mom our big news IN the photo booth – we tried to get her with a surprised face but she just kept saying “What? Cheese! Are you serious? Cheese!” Haha…oh well!)
