FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Don't forget to sign in to MckLinky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

Have you ever heard of Glamour Shots? You know, those places where they do the total makeover on you and take your pictures? When I went to visit my sister in Hawaii back in 1994, she told me that she wanted us to do this. She made the appointment and paid for everything. I remember it not being cheap either! It was so weird how we had to sit to take this picture. I guess it makes sense because we had to be as close as possible. We had to sit on a bench face to face, wrap our arms around each other, and then turn toward the camera to pose. Then they draped that gold looking thing over our shoulders to make it look "glamorous." I think one of my kids asked why we had to sit in garbage bags...LOL! But, I can't believe they got my hair to go that high! Overall, it was a really fun experience to get fixed up, and I'm so glad that I have this picture of my sister and I!! What a fun memory! Oh, and in case you couldn't figure it out, my sister is on the left, and I am on the right.

Tara said...

I remember Glamour Shots and thankfully, I never had any made. Like somebody else said, "could you be anymore beautiful?" Even in trashbags.....LOL

ocmist said...

Both you and your sister are really beautiful! My four oldest grand-daughters all had glamor shots taken as they turned 18.

Laurencita said...

Nice photo! Both of you are lovely.

Dani Joy said...

woo hooo!! Do you have this up on your wall? I know that My grandmother in love had one done and it was up on her wall. I didn´t think it looked like her, but this one really does look like you! and it´s not too done up. You didn´t get too much makeup and I think that´s the key. Your hair looks so teased but really nice! I loved those teased hair days. ;)

Dani Joy said...

btw. my desk top got ill too! ;( and I don´t have my printer/scanner connected to my lap top. sooo for Friday Photo I will go to my old albums on line if that´s ok. Some may be scanned but I don´t know which ones.

Alicia, I love that! Wasn't it fun to be primped and prodded over like that? LOL Well, back in the "day" I did the same thing (must've been about 18 years ago now)...so I thought I'd follow suit and I'm linking up my old Galmour Shot photo too! LOL

Karen said...

You both actually really do look pretty! But yet, it's funny because it's such a time specific thing to do! Love the memory!

The Farmer Files said...

Always wanted to do glamour shots...never did get to it, though! But I laugh because the hair and the "garbage bags" look so much like what I remember Glamour shots to be in the 90s!!
