A 1950s styled picnic

A 1950s styled picnic
This entry is part 1 of 13 in the series Vintage Car Workshop

This was our very last set at this vintage photography workshop that I styled and co-organized. Nikki and Amilee dressed up 1950s style, and pretended to go for a picnic.

Nikki pretends to take pictures of Amilee with a vintage film camera, and then turns the camera on herself for one of my favorite pictures from this entire shoot. Amilee just looks sweet asking for more coffee out of the thermos. Finally, Amilee made the mistake of letting Nikki drive after having too much coffee :-).

Amilee is wearing her own pastel pink dress, with no hair or makeup change. Nikki is wearing one of my vintage 1950s full skirt dresses with the white netted hat that Amilee wore in her mechanic’s set.

What a fun retro photography workshop to organize, lead, and style! I will be posting my thoughts on it and a recap later.

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
