First birthday photo ideas

Hi, all. As we quickly approach our LO's first birthday parties (or for some, this has already passed), I'm thinking about managing photos of the event. My concerns are twofold: 1.) I'm hardly ever in photos with LO, because I'm always the one taking them. I would like some memories of me with my LO for a change, not behind the camera. 2.) I hate begging people to send me their digital photos. Sometimes people forget, don't send all of them, etc. It's awkward asking.

So, I'm thinking of going old school. Providing people with disposable cameras and asking them to snap away-- and then leave the cameras at the door before they leave. Is that cheesy? I know that people still do it at weddings, but I'm trying to find a way to remedy my two concerns above but in a fun way that gets people involved.

Thoughts? TIA!

  • For our party, I gave my camera to my dad and asked him to take them.  He didn't take as many as I would have, but I was in a bunch of them, so it worked out pretty well.
