Over The Moon

 
 
 
In the 1920s and 30s paper moon photograph booths where popular features at country fairs.  Friends, families, lovers, single people, and even dogs and cats all got their pictures taken with the charming moon background.

I've long admired paper moon pictures so I was pretty excited to see the paper moon photo both by Lynn Redmile Photography at the Jazz Age lawn party.   I eagerly got the picture taken and ordered a print a week later.  I'm very pleased with the results



 
and I actually plan to order one more picture pose in the coming months.  Now if only I could get some picture moon pictures of the pups I'd be in vintage photo heaven.

  1. What a cute background! And you look right at home sitting on the moon with your honey. Makes me want to make my own paper moon backdrop for pictures. And how cute would that be to have your dogs on a paper moon?

  9. These are fabulous!!! I've always wanted paper moon photograph of myself, too (as well as a classic daguerreotype, which I know at least a couple of photographers are doing on a traveling circuit kind of basis as well). You guys really look lovely here!

  10. Those are cute photos! I love the idea of one with the pugs on the moon - especially if they were also wearing all their vintage apparel to match you!

    -Love,
