Edmonton Portrait Photographer seeking Volunteers for Heritage Photos!

We invite those with an interest in the antique, the unique and the vintage; families, children, couples and individuals to take part in an 'old-world' photo session.

Families, individuals and couples that have or are willing to invest in clothing and props to contribute to their session - in addition to a willingness to take part during the golden hour (late spring/summer/autumn) evenings

SOME IDEAS TO CONSIDER:

***The idea behind each of these sessions is to gather and capture the relationship between people/family members and second, to hold true to as detailed a background and props to a historical era as much as possible.  Background ideas and props include: Vintage buildings, vintage cars, vintage motorcycles, vintage toys, etc, farms, horses, mennonite/amish style, kids and their pets, country settings, vintage gardens and so on....

Here are some other ideas:  

Individual/Family Session: Playful family or individuals in various scenes with a vintage bike, on a fence or perhaps a picnic scene, men in hats and suspenders, old fashioned shoes, woman in a long dress and hat, children in suspenders, long dresses, old hats and other props like large metal toys, flowers, baskets and an old house, trees in the background, among a field or shady trees -  playful, warmth between relationships featured.

Creative Nationalities Session: 

Families/Individuals dressed in traditional wear - any costume from your home country, a playful group or individuals in and around an interesting outdoor setting such as a field, long road or old house/vintage background. Colorful and eye-catching!

Endearing Traditional Session: 

Photographing a grandparent and a child together in a meaningful photograph with or without a meaningful prop or just sharing a passion walking or sitting together. (prop ideas: musical instrument, an old book, a quilt made by family, etc.)
