Now that Lake Highlands resident Brent Parrott is close to retiring from teaching, he and wife Robyn have launched a new business that feels more like fun and games. With a call or a click, they’ll bring their Face-IT Foto Booth to your wedding, school carnival or other special event to get the party started.

The booth comes with fun props and costume pieces, and the idea is to get the guests out of their seats, making friends (and silly faces). Party guests walk away with a copy of their pics, but photos will also be given to the bride and groom (or the party host), and a memory book can be created for the host to keep.

Robyn admits they got the idea from their daughter, Brynn, a 2006 Lake Highlands High grad. Brynn, shown in the top photo with her husband Jacob, works in the event planning industry and says photo booths are all the rage at everything from fancy charity shin-digs to outdoor barbecues.

Seems folks like to mug for the camera, even if they are wearing a fake mustache and a feather boa.
