But First, Let’s Take a Selfie


It’s a room with a view. Of yourself.

The selfie phenomenon has moved from our mobile phones to bonafide business, and now your family can get in on the action. That’s because The Selfie Room is open for business.

Picture it. Your family, together in a studio, with a professional camera and lighting equipment, and hundreds of props. A remote control serves as your photographer. The photos are loaded onto a USB stick at the end of the session.

Located in Richmond and with reasonable rates—$76 buys an hour of fun and dozens of photos for a family of four—we think this is a great and affordable family photo op. Whether you’re commemorating a birthday or braces, or simply passing a rainy afternoon, kids can let their imaginations run wild with piles of fantastic props. You may even be able to squeeze a smile out of the child who hates having their picture taken. Stranger things have happened.

Besides, we all know that Ellen Degeneres made getting a fab group selfie look too easy—when we try, it looks like the child in the back is photo bombing. And squeezing into those shopping mall photo booths is so 1990.

So, book your session online and, for best results, make sure kids arrive at the studio fed and watered.

Since you’ve already got them dressed to go out, why not make a day of it? Go for brunch, do some shopping, let them burn off some energy or indulge in high tea.
