Antiquities - AKA, "Awesome Portraits" - It's that time again! [UPDATE]
So, each year a group of photographers come to town for a day or two and set up a professional photo studio. They have costumes and tons of props and take WONDERFUL 'antique' ish pictures in sepia tones (not b/w, not color).
This year the photographers will be here on October 23-25th so that we can get our pictures in time for the holidays! This awesome photo op is set up each year by MOPS as their annual fundraiser.
The way it works is you pay $10 for the sitting fee and that gets you a free 10x13. You have to buy a ticket from one of the MOPS people. Once you buy your ticket then in about 2 weeks someone from MOPS calls you and schedules a sitting appointment with you for October 23, 24 or 25th. The sitting times are on the quarter-hour all through the day.
You can bring one or more children. They supply the costumes (usually overalls for the boys - so you can bring them in a white t-shirt or go without a shirt), and lace dresses for the girls (they have sizes from newborn to like 13 y.o.) Then they dress up your kids in different hats, necklaces, etc. They have a variety of props (wagons, miniture chairs, old fashioned telephone, wash basins, etc.)
It's really fun.
If anyone wants to sign up, please respond to this post or p.m. me. Last day to sign up is October 16th!
You won't regret it.
Please forward this to your friends. Many people in the area participate in this each year and are wondering when it's coming up...so, please let them know!
P.S. When you go in to pick up your free 10x13 (which is scheduled for a few weeks after the sitting), they will have all the poses available for purchase and have special packages with special pricing. I'm not sure on the specifics of that part.
