for starters - i would use a basic 50mm lens. maybe adjust the white balance to get the peachy tone. now sure which one would do that tho... experiment.
If you don't have those options... take a shot, down load picasa, use the center focus soft focus edge filter, convert to a soft sepia...it would get the basic look as an application you can do right away... brb, i will go do one and upload it for you real quick so you can see. see you in about 5 minutes.

if you want to keep the color, just desaturate it a bit either pre shooting with digital camera set to a lower saturation or pp. not sure what it is about the image that you are wanting to emulate. more info from you and we can assist better.:)

When you first shoot, you are going to have to use a hair light too, in order to get the right effect (or just photoshop it).
