Photos by Eileen Molony

Local photographer Eileen Molony decided to give out something a little more memorable than candy this Halloween.

Molony, who lives on the 800 block of Wenonah Avenue, set up a free photo booth on her porch for trick-or-treaters. She took pictures of more than 40 youngsters.

“It was something I could do without leaving my own kids on Halloween,” says Molony. “And I hadn’t seen it done before. I like to be original.”

Molony says neighbors were very receptive and thought the photo booth was a great idea.

“Some kids were shy for the first snap but loosened up once I asked for their silly face.”

Molony thinks there is a good possibility the photo booth for trick-or-treaters will become an annual fixture.
