My Little Vintage Family

Monday, May 14, 2012


Hello everyone! I hope that all of the mommas out there had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!! We had a great weekend. Saturday was spent getting our family portraits done, in vintage style of course. After photos, we went to my mother-in-law's house to celebrate Mother's Day with her. Pj made her favorite dish, shrimp creole, which is what his dad made for her each time she came home from the hospital after giving birth.

On Mother's Day, I had breakfast and mimosas in bed while I watched Mad Men. The kids let me sleep in till almost 9:00, which was such a rare treat! We had dinner at my mom's house followed by playing at a local park until dark.

 Anyway, I wanted to show you some of our vintage family portraits! My sister's friend, Roxanne is an amazing photographer and I've been dying to get some photos done my her for years. She did a fantastic job getting my kids to smile and look at the camera, even though all they wanted to do was run off and play.
To see Roxanne's portfolio and pricing check out her facebook page.

 I wore my Paris Market Dress that I made last year for Easter.  To tie in the colors from the kids outfits, I accessorized with  Bakelite jewelry and a green bolero. I used a pair of over sized Bakelite earrings as dress clips to keep my bolero in place. See more on The Paris Market Dress and where to buy the fabric here


Pj doesn't dig on vintage so he put together a modern, vintage-style outfit with his own rugged twist, He wore a button-up shirt with rolled up sleeves, his favorite vest, grey corduroy pants and one of his trademark hats

 Olivia wore her green vintage dress from Brenda Sue's. I love the embroidered yoke, peter pan collar and little rhinestone buckle. I did make a green hair ribbon to match but she fell asleep in the car on the way to the park and it slipped out!



Rhys wore a vintage yellow seersucker romper that I picked up from my local antique mall last month. He looked a little naked in just the romper so Pj had the idea to put a little striped onesie on underneath.

  5. You all are adorable! I can never get my kids to sit for pictures- one is always making faces or pulling the other's hair, etc.

    1. ha! We had that problem too! The entire time they were screaming and wanting to run. In most of these smiling ones, Roxanne was screaming and making goofy faces just to get them to look at the camera. In the black and white one, Olivia refused to smile and was getting really mad at us but the pic turned out pretty cute anyway! :P

    You make me wish I could sew!
    Your clothes are sooo lovely.
    It's so hard to find good vintage fashions for thicker gals.
