New Updated Wardrobe

When Vintage Girl Studios began almost six years ago We had a very small wardrobe. VGS grew and our wardrobe grew from finds and donations. Thank you you ladies who have contributed to the happiness of others that have graced our studio.
 Once a session is booked  at the studio we send our clients a questionnaire and a link to view our wardrobe online. I realized that it hadn't been updated in some time and wanted to show off the wonderful items  that we have now.

  We have also partner with Penny Lane a new designer for a custom separates. Check out our video on FAQs about Wardrobe.

We have been behind on our Blogging this year. So many wonderful clients and events. Check out our Facebook and Instagram to keep up with us lately.

Roaring Twenties Party and Tintypes.

We had such a great summer preparing for the Roaring Twenties Party at the Crane Estate.  We spent a few weeks afterward in the darkroom insuring that we would get the best tintype for our clients. We are so excited for this event for next year that will be on a Saturday. We loved working with our vintage camera and it brought us back to our grass roots and got us out of the computer chair this summer. If you would like to see more images of this amazing day check out our Facebook page.

We are going further into study of tintype photography this fall and will keep you posted of our adventure.We will be offering in the studio from now on in addition to our other sessions. We are also will be offering tintype at a few events in 2016.
Check out our tintypes gallery.

Tin Type Portraits at Vintage Girl Studios


A tintype, also known as a melainotype or ferrotype, is a photograph made by creating a direct positive on a thin sheet of metal coated with a dark lacquer or enamel and used as the support for the photographic emulsion. Tintypes enjoyed their widest use during the 1860s and 1870s, but lesser use of the medium persisted into the early 20th century and it has been revived as a novelty in the 21st.
Tintype portraits were at first usually made in a formal photographic studio, like daguerreotypes and other early types of photographs, but later they were most commonly made by photographers working in booths or the open air at fairs and carnivals, as well as by itinerant sidewalk photographers.

We are so excited to announce the addition of tintype portraiture here at Vintage Girl Studios. We have seen a revival of tintype photography with Victoria Will's celebrity portraits at the Sundance Film Festival last year. Vintage Girl Studios always strives to offer our clients unique, interesting, cutting-edge choices and this spring we have decided get out the the computer chair and go back to the grass roots of mechanical vintage cameras and emulsion based photography. It has been much trial and error, but we believe that our effort is definitely worth it.  We hope you'll agree!

Tintype photography produces truly one-of-a-kind hauntingly beautiful art.

We will be debuting this offering at The Crane Estate Roaring Twenties Party with  mini sessions on Sunday, August 2nd.
