Remember the days of classic movies?  Women in hats, veils and all the great dramatic lighting. 

Isn't it fun to play dress up.  Imagine yourself ready to go out to an old fashioned nightclub. Can you see a jazz band featuring a sultry singer in a gown and big hat singing about love, obsession and passion?

Most photos need shadows.  The shadows are not mistakes, but add to the emotions, suspense and drama. A photo needs shadows to show features, add dimension and more. Without shadows you would have a flat, grey image that is boring.

Also isn't it fun to play dress up.  Imagine yourself ready to go out to an old fashioned nightclub. Can you see a jazz band featuring a sultry singer in a gown and big hat singing about love, obsession and passion?

How can you be in your own movie?  Get dressed up, have the photographer use an old fashioned film camera and dramatic lighting.  Call Allan at 303-743-0616 to get the details. Now lets snap the picture.

How to plan a vintage photo session

Vintage photo with flower

Are you interested in having  vintage photos created.  Something classy, timeless and fun.  We create these sessions to make you look great and produce art that has a feeling of the classic photos 

How do you create a vintage look?  Start with your clothing.  You (or your mom) may have some some great dresses hanging in the closet.  Or perhaps you can get them from a consignment store or vintage clothing store.  

Add simple jewelry like this necklace, a flower in your hair and a little hair styling and simple makeup and you are all set.

I, the photographer will help you coordinate the photos.  Most vintage pictures have a soft, natural feeling and lighting that is very flattering to your face and skin.  Add a simple border, minimal retouching and you have  a photo that could pass for one taken in the 1950s!
