We’ve come a long way in the history of selfies, from classic mirror pics to selfie sticks; the selfie has certainly evolved. In the era of perfect Instagram photos capturing the perfect moment is everything. 

Capture the Moments Selfie Room is owned by the couple Juan and Carmen Rodriguez. They have been together for 18 years, married for 12 years, with 4 beautiful children. Juan was raised in Great Brook Valley and they are successful business owners, owning a slew of cosmetology businesses including, Headliners Barbershop, Ladies of Headliners, Gossip Girl nail salon and more. 

With already being in the business of giving people self confidence the selfie room is right on track for their type of business. Making people feel good, giving them a reason to smile, celebrating each other and more importantly Capture the Moment. The space can be used for birthday parties, creative planning for brands or just a day out with friends and family.

The official ribbon cutting was on Monday, February 6th and the couple had the pleasure of being visited by the Mayors of Auburn and Worcester amongst their many other special guests. 

Most selfie rooms have been seen in Boston and other major cities, but Carmen had the idea to bring that joy closer to the residents in Worcester County. “It feels like it happened overnight,” says husband Juan, but in reality it took around three months to execute her vision. 

There are five designated rooms and a seasonal area which is currently set up for the lovers of Valentine’s Day. There’s a graffiti room, Celtics room, a Barbie room and more to please visitors’ creative senses. The paintings were done by William Santiago known on Instagram as @destroyinglife. Each room comes ready with a ring light for the best possible lighting and props in certain rooms to increase the realness of your picture. 

The selfie room is located at 65 Southbridge St, Auburn,Ma. Admission is $20 per adult, $15 per child and free for children two and under. Carmen has plans to change the backdrops as the seasons change, keeping the selfie room fun and exciting.

Carmen’s next project is working on collecting prom dresses for 10 girls for prom season. Two girls will get a chance at winning a full glam for prom including the dress, hair, makeup and nails. This is an exciting project for the couple giving young girls the chance to be princesses for a night.
