Holiday Portraits at the Historical Society Museum Campus

sample-of-family-in-front-of-fireplaceWouldn’t it be fun to have a holiday portrait taken this year in the historic 1906 Dietrich Friedrich House museum? You can even consider dressing in 1906-era clothing for an extra touch.

The Mount Prospect Historical Society (MPHS) is partnering with Images by David Kay to give residents the opportunity to have unique holiday portraits taken inside the parlor of the historic family home, located at 101 S. Maple St., from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 22 and Sunday, Oct. 23.

Participants will get a 15-minute portrait session, (groups over five people will need to schedule two time slots).  Several photos will be taken of you and/or your group during your session with different poses. The photos will then be professionally edited and sent back to you via email, along with a letter that allows you to have prints made wherever you wish.

According to Bill Kruser, co-owner of Images by David Kay, it is best to take these portraits prior to Halloween because it gives people a chance to get their final images done in time to be sent out to friends and family for the holidays.

“We are really excited to offer this unique holiday experience at the museum this year,” says Lindsay Rice, MPHS executive director, “We are going to decorate the museum early this year for Christmas so that it adds the perfect charm to the portraits.”

Registration for portrait sessions commences on Monday, Sept. 19. The cost per portrait session is $40. You can register and pay with a credit card by calling the Mount Prospect Historical Society at 847/392-9006.
