Tintype Portrait Session

$ 135.00

Pop up at Minnow Lane November 12-13
10am- 5pm

Maurene Cooper of Vanity Tintype will be on-site with us in the shop on Frankfort Ave., the weekend of November 12-13 with her mobile darkroom and studio set up for one-of-a-kind tintype portrait sessions. In these kid- friendly sessions, Vanity Tintype will produce 5x7 portraits, using her large-format 19th-century camera with strobe lighting. This is a truly unique experience yealing modern heirlooms. 

The booking fee for your 5x7- 40 minute portrait session is $135

During the secession Vanity Tintype will shoot three tintypes- three variations on one pose with minimal outfit changes in between ( for example, adding a sweater, removing a tie, changing a hair accessory). No full outfit changes. 

Tintypes are unique handmade objects with occasional imperfections. I will always reshoot for my own errors, blinks, or chemical failures.

The booking fee includes one tintype and a social -media sized version of the image with Vanity Tintype branding. The varnished print will be available for pickup at Minnow Lane the weekend of November 17th. 


The other tintypes can be purchased at the time of the shoot for an additional charge. 

Digital Piezography prints from the tintypes are available in 4x5, 5x7, 8x10 and 11x14 for an additional fee. 

Reproducible digital versions of the images (without Vanity Tintype branding) are available for an additional charge (This is a good option for a holiday card) 


Due to the size of a 5x7 frame no more than 4 people can be accommodated. If you are interested in more than 4 people in a tintype please reachout to info@vanitytintype.com directly.

Dogs are not recommended for this pop-up. Reach out info@vanitytintype.com directly, if you wish to schedule a session with dogs and children. 

If the client has more than one child and is interested in individual portraits and a group portrait, they should book one session for each individual and one session for the group. The three tintypes that are produced in the secession are only variations on a pose.  

This process uses powerful bright lights and is highly discouraged for anyone with a sensory processing concern. 


Refunds are offered with a cancellation no less than 72 hours in advance.
