It's finally here! The post I have been talking up on my Facebook page and sharing sneak peek photos from! My shoot with Chicago Pinup
In August, me and my friend Amber of Style Plus Curves
got the great opportunity to do a duel pin up shoot with Chicago Pinup at their studio in Warrenville, IL. Upon arriving at the studio, we both went through hair and makeup, transforming us into dolled-up, pin up girls! Yari, the Chicago Pinup "Glam Squad" makeup artist, gave me a wonderful, airbrushed foundation and vintage cat eyes. My inventive hair style (it took some work to temporarily cover my shaved patch) with fitting victory rolls was the work of Katrina.
After all of the final touches, me and Amber headed into the studio with Karina, the owner and main photographer. There were shoes galore and a great assortment of props everywhere! It was like walking into the drama room in high school...I wanted to try everything on!
Even though I have had some experience in front of a camera, I was quite nervous. I had never done a pinup shoot before! Surprisingly, it didn't take long for me to get into "character. Karina's helpful tips and easy-going demeanor had me relaxed and laughing. After all of the fun in the studio, I couldn't wait to see our photos....but I would have to wait. With the recent expansion of their studio, it ended up taking longer than the originally quoted 4 weeks for me to get my photos. Even so, Karina's communication was wonderful through the entire process! I am very excited to see Chicago Pinup grow, especially with their recent decision to do pin up exclusively!
Enjoy my favorite photos from the shoot!
Doesn't this look like a blast? Thank you Karina and the entire Chicago Pinup team!
