Tips for your Pin Up Photography Session and update

So hi, about time I updated my website with more pin up stuff! So ta-da! : New packages for pin up shoots. 

The main difference between boudoir and pinup is the amount of retouching. While the boudoir is more natural, sexy look, pinup is glossy and everything from skin to the hair is touched up. This package does include hair styling just to get the hair right 🙂

+ Prepare your outfits carefully. From fully dressed to underwear. Make sure everything goes. For example bring a fifties looking dress, with the lingerie stockings and shoes. We will take pictures of the whole outfit and go from there.

+ Choose a theme.

  • Fifties pin-up or sixties for that matter
  • sailor, military (police or anything uniform) cowgirl
  • sexy secretary (or sexy librarian)
  • playboy bunny
  • singer (like jessica rabbit?) Sexy long dress
  • housewife (sexy dress, apron) – or nightie 
  • beach (bathing suit, sunglasses, hat)

or anything really. Get inspired by researching pin up photos and my absolute hero: Alberto Vargas. Dust of those slutty Halloween costumes.

+ Practice your posing. This is the time to let it all out. Go as out there as you can. Always point your toes and keep your hands busy. More posing tips here.
+ Plan what you want. In this kind of shoot, it’s better to plan ahead as much as possible. Depending on your package you can choose between having two outfits or unlimited to plan a calendar. Wouldn’t that be nifty? have your own pinup calendar? Plan your outfits per month in this case.
+ Bring props! Backgrounds available are pink, red, striped red (kinda circus-like), black and white. Will add more as we go.

 Below is a sample of the retouching. Who else but me is brave enough to show a before and after picture. The things I do for you people. What also works here is the pose.  No need to tuck the waist since the arm does the job of covering it AND pushing boobs together. Dang it, I forgot to do my nails.

the before- leaving it little, but you get the idea.
Skin, makeup, and background gets the photoshopping.

err, my boobs look huge! They no not look like that on real life. The combination of the top and the arm.  On that note, check the gallery here.
