German 1950’s Retro Portrait

German 1950’s Retro Portrait’s Story from Carolin:

“The motto of this 1950’s retro styled session was “summertime sadness.” We wanted to evoke the feeling of longing for the old summer days or a love long passed – melancholic, longing but also keeping oneself together like a lady. Staying with two main colors, red and black, we were striving for a simplistic yet sophisticated look. Anna with her beautiful long hair and her big eyes was perfect for this. The dramatic make up by Svetlana from Diva Make Up Art and the handmade dresses from Geschichtsgewänder tailored according to original designs from the 1950’s added much to achieving our goal.”
