“We have a wide assortment of costumes and props from different eras that people can dress up in for a photo taken in our parlour or kitchen settings by a local professional photographer,” explained museum curator Kristina Parkes. “There are sizes for adults and children, making it a fun family activity with an end result being a one-of-a-kind professional-quality photo that would make a terrific Christmas gift. Individuals, groups and families are all welcome.”

The costumes cover many eras and Parkes invites people to use their imaginations for the photoshoots, people are also welcome to bring their own costumes.

The event is being supported by Grindrod Players, O’Keefe Ranch, Haney Heritage Village and Museum, Linda Drake, Armstrong-Spallumcheen Museum and Arts Society and Shuswap Theatre by loaning period costumes.

Professional photographers volunteering their services for the event are Darren Robinson, Jennifer Weaver, Alex Inselberg, Shelsey Ambrosi, Jacky Clark, Carla-Jean Stokes, Jette Russell, Danika Haak and Stephanie Comer.

There are limited time slots available so book your spot now. The event will run every Saturday from Oct. 13 to Nov. 24,10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The cost for one professional black and white JPEG digital image file is $20 or you can get three black and white JPEG digital image files for $50.

Parkes has curated the museum since the spring and is excited to present this event to raise funds and raise the museum’s profile.

“As a non-profit organization with limited funding, this fundraiser will go a long way to helping us continue to enhance this wonderful community amenity,” added Parkes. “We are working hard to keep the museum relevant in these changing times and this will be a fun way for people to support the work done here to preserve local history for future generations.”

For further information and to book your photo shoot call Kristina at 250-838-7170 Tuesday through Friday from 12 to 4 p.m. or email enderbymusem@shaw.ca.
