We spent the entire morning getting ourselves fitted out in 40's style - I tell you, I couldn't imagine getting myself gussied up like that every day, but then I was reminded that in the 40's if you did your hair like that every day you'd get a perm. :-) We strolled around a couple of antique stores first, and then we headed over to a park by the railroad tracks. Railroad tracks are the classic photo spot - EVERYONE shoots on railroad tracks.... except me, apparently. Until this shoot I'd never shot on railroad tracks. But now I can say I have, which just makes me a more trustworthy photographer, right? :-)
Lily has a mania for vintage luggage, which worked out well, so that instead of just shooting on railroad tracks, we could use it to convey a 1940's travel theme. After we finished the shoot, we went to Culver's and had custard... after all, it's tradition.
Check out Lily's post about her adorable dress on her brand new blog, Mode de Lis!
Gretel's stinkin' cute shoes are original 40's pumps! I wish I had feet that small!
For the grandparents... :-)
Tara only got one picture because we were getting very hot and sticky and ready for ice cream
(plus we already did a shoot with this dress :-)
'Cause everyone waits for the train while standing right in the middle of the tracks... that way you're sure to know when it arrives. :-)
