Vintage family photo shoot

Even though money is a bit tight at the moment, since DH is in between jobs, my DH has got himself persuaded to accept an offer for a family photo shoot for 15 euro.
I wasn’t too impressed when he first told me about it, because at these photo shoots they normally take more different pictures and then when you want to buy them all it is way more than you can afford.

But since he paid already there wasn’t much I could do about it. Yesterday we went to church and afterwards I went to get something in the shop and when I got back in the car, he asked if we were still going to get pictures taken. I had totally forgotten about it and looked in the car for the paper he got. We were supposed to be at the hotel for the photo shoot yesterday around that time. I read the paper better and it said that they provided clothing for kids and women and that men should wear a shirt and pants and I was wondering why.

Then I read it even better and realised that it wasn’t an ordinary shoot, it was a photo shoot in vintage clothing in the style of 1920-1930 which would be done in sepia. Then I got a bit excited, thinking that should be fun playing dress up and then getting pictures taken.

The girls and I got vintage dresses, hats and pearl necklaces and DH got a hat. They took about three pictures from all of us and then they took from the three kids and from each of the girls separately a few pictures. At the end we got a paper with different packages to choose from and the prices aren’t bad at all. We are supposed to get one big photograph free and also needed to pay a sitting fee of 5 euro when we arrived.

The pictures will be finished and ready for collection on September 5 so I’m really curious to see how they will come out And then I have to decide which pictures we’re going to take and which package. But overall it has been a fun thing to do on a Sunday afternoon.

How was your Sunday? I hope that you had a lovely day.

Stay well.
