his pinup girl

a few months ago, a friend of my good friends wanted to do something special for her fiance.  he calls her his pinup girl, so doing a sweet and sexy retro-styled shoot was the perfect solution!

j’s wedding was a few weeks ago, so i can finally share some of these with you!

these images were, of course, shared with permission and do not include some of the ones that i’m sure her now-husband likes the most.  😀

please contact me if you’re interested in a pin-up session!  this was one of the most fun sessions i’ve ever done, and i’d love to do lots more!

Are they your glasses in the last one?

gwyn9 July 2009 - 00:25

they are one of my pairs…not the pair i wear. the frames weren’t really sturdy enough to put prescription lenses in…they were cheapy sunnies. i popped the lenses out…in this shot there are actually no lenses in the frames. 😀

So cute Gwyn! I love the last one with your frames, but the turquoise/red combo REALLY makes a statement!

Aw, I hadn’t thought of that and of course D. did. Lol She really IS a perfect pinup girl and you captured the sweetness and sexiness! I am so impressed with This idea and execution. Was this her wedding present to him? Also, I am jealous. Do you think you could do my hair like that? I have always wanted to.

I see! It is a package deal. Actually, yeah. We didn’t get to do much for our anniversary this year and next year is our 5th. I may be pregnant again by then so maybe I could do it as a b-day present or Christmas present. I’m thinking maybe Christmas so I could wear a Santa hat. Okay, let’s get the sticker shock out of the way. Why dontcha gimme a quote? 😉

My sister is getting married in may and I’m interested in pinup photo sessions as part of her bachelorette party. What are your prices? Do you offer a discount for multiple people? How long would a session take?
I am looking for a general idea and we can possibly discuss specifics later.
Thank you!

My girlfriend has dropped hints that she would love to have a 50’s pinup model photo shoot. She rocks the “Rosie the Riveter” look while behind the bar consistently and gets compliments about it very often. She really does have the features for it and I know that she would be excited about doing this. The photos that I saw look great. Are you available to do a shoot with her?
