This beauty came to us all the way from Georgia! Beth and her friend Corie stayed that the beautiful boutique hotel we have on our block (Hotel Retlaw). I loved creating welcome baskets for these ladies that featured goodies from Fond du lac.
Beth loves pinup style and knew she wanted to incorporate that into her session. The first outfit we paired her in a high waisted pencil skirt and a cute cherry cardigan. My favorite color combo is red and turquoise. I love how the background makes her pop!
The second outfit we used a vintage inspired sheer robe with fur details. We topped the look off with plenty of pearls.
The third outfit we added a vintage lamp to give it that pinup feel.
Making each shoot unique to the client is what helps to set us apart. We love shooting glamour and classic boudoir shoots. At the same time we want to stand out from other photographers. New projects usually mean more of an investment. Investment in backdrops, props, furniture, clothing and accessories.
For over two years I have been holding on to these colorful velcro rollers. I have even taken them to shoots back when we shot in hotel rooms. Just in case I could use them. I am not one to hold onto things that are not useful for too long but something told me they needed to stay.
Our client Kathe did not know I had this surprise in store for her. I just new this would be a perfect fit. So the day of her shoot we told her what we had in store. She was so excited. The best part is her mom yelled from the makeup chair…. grab her cigarettes! She needs to have a smoke. Fan of smoking or not those are some of my favorite images.
The set was made up of a leftover piece of pink seamless paper for the backdrop, a plant from one of our sets, velvet chair from the studio and a hairdryer supplied by our stylist Jodi. Jodi found this beauty on the side of the road many moons ago.
To save time we only rolled the front of her hair in rollers. The bodysuit was in our Sparkle Wardrobe and the heels were a part of Kathe’s wardrobe. They were literally the icing on the cake.
If this set has you inspired message us so we can create a perfect pinup look for you!
These are the kind of images that need to be out on display! This is the perfect example of a time I would recommend adding a 9 UP framed print to your package!
