Swingin' Sweeties Retro Sessions

Ladies, grab your fellas and mark your calendars! Have you always loved those old vintage military pictures, like the classic picture of the sailor kissing the nurse on V-J day?

Well - here is your chance ... and I am SUPER EXCITED about this!!!!!!!!

Ashley Durham Photography will be taking some of these awesome pictures at the Dakota Territory Air Museum on Sunday, April 10th starting at 10am, booking in 30 minute increments ... Kids, families, couples - everyone is welcome to take a trip back to the 30s, 40s and 50s to take some awesome shots in the hangar at the Air Museum.

Have your fella wear his uniform!

** You do NOT have to be in retro-wear for this event ... it just makes it THAT much more awesome if you are, though. **

Want some help with your makeup and victory rolls? Hair & Makeup will be available with Jutone Isham-Reyes for $20 per person, by appointment

So how much is it?

  • Session Fee: $75
  • Includes: Entrance to the museum,
    • $20 in print credit
    • AND a CD of 10 images
A $25 deposit will be required. At least 4 people/couples/families must sign up for this event for it to happen - I normally don't require a minimum number for mini sessions, but since I have to rent the museum it's a little different this time.


If you buy an outfit for this and do NOT want to keep it - you can donate your outfit to me (for future retro events) and receive a discount (all the way up to free!) for your session. Discount will vary depending on the item donated and discounts will be decided no later than one week before the event, please contact me for more information. :)

Don't know where to go to buy your outfit?? Check out these stores:
If buying a new outfit is out of the question - you can't go wrong with a pair of cute capris, wedges and a cute top! Think polka dots, stripes, reds and navy blue, high waist - and most importantly, awesome shoes and vintage hairstyles and makeup!

For little girls ... A-line or empire waist dresses with Mary Janes or saddle shoes, pigtails with ribbons in their hair or cute little barrets. Simple!

For little boys ... khaki pants with a white button up shirt, loafers and their hair combed and parted makes for the PERFECT retro outfit. Simple!

If you're interested in doing this or have any questions, please call Ashley at 701-200-2368 or email
