Kat Perkins is the Youth Minister at St. Gabriel Catholic Church in Cave Creek Arizona. She is responsible for the Middle School and High School program. In Addition to the students who attend the church, she also has outreach events at Annunciation Catholic School which is attached to St. Gabriel. I have been working with her for the past three years to help her grown her program. One tool we use is middle School Dances. Four times a year we come out help her promote her school dance and produce it for her.
The church is attached to the school which allows Kat to visit the students during their lunchtime. So a week before the school dance she goes out to visit the kids and have them create a song list. That gets the students thinking about their dance, which helps to boost attendance.
We serve Annuciaotn and St. Gabriel by supplying both the DJ and the Photo Booth. This year we purchased a Mirror Photo Booth which allows the students to get their picture taken, the mirror then tells them how beautiful they are it prints out their picture. One of my favorite features of the mirror is the touch screen effect. Before the Mirror takes the picture, it will tell the guests to touch the screen to begin.
The mirror will have a countdown, and it will take three pictures for them. After the pictures are taken, the mirror will tell them how awesome they look. Its good to be affirmed.
The last dance was in December, so we had a fun Christmas theme. After taking the picture, the youth have an opportunity to sign their photos by signing their name on the screen.

I love it that the mirror allows the guests to sign at the same time, no need to wait. They are also able to add Emoji to their creation. ???? In addition to printing out their pictures, the mirror will ask them to input their cell phone number so it can text it to their phones. Once they have received their picture, they can post it to Snapchat or Instagram.
We are looking forward to the next dance in February which will have a Mardi Gras theme. It is a great group of youth, and we appreciate Annunciation/ St. Gabrial trusting Green Screen Photo Booth with their event.
