It’s not that kids didn’t wear Vans in the 90s, for me it’s that those particular style of Vans look a later style.

Boys' hairstyles and Vans-style skater kicks clinch it for me in mid-to-late 1990s, and everyone else's clothes do nothing to dispute that. The woman's halter-style bodice, which may or may not sport a front zipper closure, is consistent with mid-90s; I had several.

My brothers were around the age of those kids, then, and it's very analogous to the look they and their friends sported. I was in college by then, different style scene.

But, if it's a foreign, Eastern bloc, Balkans or former Soviet republic type pic, all bets are off. Based on my time overseas, so often, retro looks are embraced on a totally different rotation compared to what is going on in the states. But, if U.S., My vote would solidly be mid to late 90s.

The deep jewel tones of the portrait setting and backdrop are also consistent with mid 90s...Forest green, maroon, and heavy/crushed velvets were a thing. I had my senior portrait taken, 1995, in a deep forest green crushed velvet stretch velour scoop-neck dress. Drama mama.

I would guess late 90s or Eastern Europe.

Those Vans are just a retooling of PF Flyers from the 60s-70s. The 70s PFs we’re likely a retooling of a previous style as well.

Keds had a similar style then as well. We liked to get PFs because everyone else had Keds lol.

Based more on what the males in the photo are wearing, I would think late 90s/early 2000s.
Based on your post, we are around the same age, and I completely agree with your conclusion.
