Vintage in Czech Village

Czech Village Vintage Portrait Session - Cedar Rapids Portrait Photographer

I met Sarah while I worked at the Cedar Rapids Public Library when she told me she had been involved in a roller derby team and was looking into exploring new hobbies. Fast forward about a year and she reached out to me for a session featuring her newest interest - reproduction vintage or true vintage wear. Her three reasons for going vintage?

  • It gives quality articles of clothing a new life.

  • It supports many female-owned shops & her tailor.

  • It builds her confidence sporting classically feminine attire of the 1940'2-1960's.

What better way to share her new love than with a photoshoot set in Czech Village! I was so excited! For a Spring shoot we ended up getting up on a very gray, cold morning, but it was well worth it. The overcast skies created a beautiful light to showcase the various outfits Sarah was rocking that day.
