Classic Vintage Hat Portrait photograph

Hat picture for classic portrait

Vintage inspired photo.  I love hats.

It's amazing what a great prop can do to enhance a photo.  Imagine this picture without the hat.  Not the same is it?  Sonya is a vintage model (and also tattoo - alternative model).  

It's so great to work with simple props. They add dimension, personality and fun to a photo. You can pickup a great antique hat, for a very affordable amount, at consignment stores, antique dealers, thrift and second hand stores, etc.

Allan is one of the best photographers to hire to create vintage photographs.  He has years of experience working with film cameras. Because of his background he understands the tones, color and feeling in a vintage picture. 

I've included a black and white version of the photo.  Which do you prefer?

How to plan a vintage photo session

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!
