  • first-birthday-photobooth

We wanted to have a Photobooth at our daughter’s first birthday party for our guests to enjoy & to take home a little memorabilia. Pixel design team customized the photo card for us to fit our “hot air balloon” theme, it was great. The staff that came to our event was professional & accommodating to all the kiddies who loved playing with the prop box. Ner L.’s Yelp ReviewCapturing your little one’s 1st Birthday is a must!  We work with a lot of parents that are getting ready to celebrate their baby’s big day and are looking for unique 1st birthday photo ideas.

Having a photo booth at a 1st Birthday party is a fun and unique way to capture precious memories of friends, family and of course the BABY!  The main question we get from parents for their babies 1st birthday party is “Can you incorporate our party theme?”  YES, we can!

Sometimes the venue may have a perfect spot that you’d like incorporated into the photos, or you may want a special birthday backdrop created.  This is where the customization creativity can be unique and special to your baby’s 1st birthday.
