Vintage School Children Photo shoot in Davidson NC

So I can’t even tell you how long I have dreamed about setting up a vintage schoolhouse themed shoot.  I love the charm and simplistic nostalgia of one-room schoolhouses, with their George Washington portrait calmly watching over the classroom, and a bell that lets all the kids know that school is in session.  I love slates and chalk smells and old wood and words like arithmetic.  I love children eager to learn, and teachers eager to teach.

So… I teamed up with the amazing Anders Ruff and Made by Morgan and together we staged a full on vintage classroom photo shoot at the historic schoolhouse at Rural Hill in Davidson, NC.

We had some absolutely amazing child models that worked so well with us.  Little J is a little actor, anything that I suggested he do, he took and ran with it.  Expressions and everything.  We wanted the scenes to tell a story, and have a lot of personality.

I am so happy with how this turned out.  Please stop by the following vendors to see even more from our shoot:
