We threw a sock hop party for my mother-in-law, who turned 60, last night–rented out the American Legion hall in Buckhead, and invited about 100 of her friends and family to attend dressed in leather jackets and poodle skirts. I was the photographer for the night: we set up a balloon arch in the back and I took prom-ish portraits of the couples and I also roamed around taking shots of costumes and dancers and family reunion moments. I took just shy of 500 photos last night, and I haven’t even really begun to cull through them. Who knows how long that’ll take?
Here’s Catherine in her very twirly poodle skirt.
