Let's Go To The Movies, Volume 1

Welcome to the ELM Images Blog! If you are reading this post its because you were intrigued to see the crazy cute classic movie posters my best friend and I recreated starring my three kids and her two boys for our annual family project.  This year was our 5th project together and it was insanely fun!

This classic movie poster project was by far the easiest to plan, but took a lot of work to put together. Like Oprah Winfrey and I always say, "love is in the details", and by golly this time there were a lot of details. After a few weeks of planning, shopping, sewing (thank you Janet aka Gran Jan!!), one wild and crazy photoshoot with the kids (5 kids, ages 4-9 years old) and a day or two of editing we found ourselves with some pretty outstanding images. 

We love them all so much, like the kind of love that makes us teary because we love our kids and the memories that this experience gives our families.  We have talked about this idea for a few years and we can't believe we pulled it off. The results blew us away!   

So, without further ado, in no particular order below are our recreated classic movie posters (Volume 1) including some outtakes, and extras, too! 

Thank you for reading this blog and enjoy the images below!
