Snapshot of the Kennedys

If you are a regular reader of our Hawthorne Hotel Blog, you will likely already know that we love to have fun here. We are always trying to get creative with whatever comes our way, to make things fun for our guests.

Our latest foray into the creative mode was to create a package that would be coupled with the latest exhibit at PEM (the Peabody Essex Museum) The Kennedys: A Portrait of a Family/Photographs by Richard Avedon and here is the result, our package called "Snapshot of the Kennedys".

Available through July 18, 2010, the "Snapshot of the Kennedys" package includes overnight accommodations at the historic Hawthorne Hotel, tickets to the Peabody Essex Museum to see The Kennedys: A Portrait of a Family/Photographs by Richard Avedon, a pair of Jackie Kennedy-inspired sunglasses and a photo session with a life-size stand-up of President John F. Kennedy himself, including a contact sheet of your photos, and one 8 x 10 photo as well!

Richard Avedon famed photographer and creator of the portraits of John and Jacqueline Kennedy and family on display at the Peabody Essex Museum said, "And if a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up. I know that the accident of my being a photographer has made my life possible,”

After reading that quote, I thought, "Hello! That feels very familiar to me, too!" So now I will have even more excuses to fire up my camera, to take YOUR soon-to-be-famous photos!

In the photo shoot you see below, we were happy to have Laura Abraham, our "Jackie-alike" stand in for you, dear future guest. Laura works for us in our Sales and Catering Department, but she loves to dress in a retro look, so we thought she was perfect for this assignment. Don't you agree??

I hope to see you here, and I hope to be taking YOUR photo soon.
