How best to create fashion camera in house?!

Hi all,

Just needing some creative ideas as to how to approach this.

My wife wants to take photos of all her many, many outfits so she can then tell home assistant to pick her a random outfit, select for weather etc.

Therefore goal would be to have a button in her dressing room that she can press to start a brief countdown and take a photo. This would then save to a NAS location.

I’m thinking a webcam that I’d connect somehow to home assistant by WiFi? Can use some IKEA smart buttons for the trigger. Do I need to create a dedicated raspberry pi to plug the camera into? Could I use esphome?

Thoughts welcome!
