Pinup wanna be???

I'm not a pinup nor would I ever wanna be...it's lots of hard work, but boy was it fun for the day! Here are two of my favorites so far from my day spent at Atomic Cheesecake Studio!

  2. You look absolutely stunning! When I saw your first post, I tried to find a similar photographer near me, but I sure wish I could go to the studio you went to. Spectacular work!

  3. Thanks girls....just the little pick me up I needed this week! Perfect timing! I don't know if I will ever get the nerve to post the more "intimate" ones! hahaha

    Tikimama...Stacey, who owns Atomic Cheesecake studios does wonderful work and is lots of fun to do a shoot with. I don't know where you live but it's worth taking a trip for! :) You might also contact her to see if she can recommend someone closer to you??

  4. Mary you look gorgeous girl! Can't wait for you to post the others as you are just stunning, and it's certainly encouraged me to seriously make moves towards having a retro inspired photoshoot. I so admire work by George Hurrell and also the Elvirin (you know what I mean) paintings which I'd love to pose for. Just need to get the dollars and cents together and the courage!

  7. Hi!! These were the photos I was asking you the other time! You look REALLY BEAUTIFUL !!! Muy bonita!!The hair, the make up....and of course YOU!!! I hope you post the others you say.
    I really would like to have that photoshoot too...of course going to the same place is very difficult for me, but I'll get some even if I do it my self! hahahaha

  8. Those are soooo cute, and you look great! Like you I am a little bit "anti pinup" because I'm tired of everyone & their sister touting themselves as one, but your pics really are darling! I love the hair and makeup, too. Did they do it, or did you DIY it? Either way, gorgeous!

  9. Thanks gals for all the nice comments! I am actually very shy about myself so these might be the only pictures I will ever post from the shoot??

    I encourage any gal to just do a fun photo shoot at least once in her life!

    Pam B... I know what you mean about "everyone" trying to be a pinup... a lot of them are not true pinup but more "trashy" in my eyes. Stacey at Atomic Cheesecake does EVERYTHING (hair, makeup,poses, photos)...she's like an atomic wonder woman!

    Lizzy...Yes, it might be a trip for you! hahaha I would try to look into local photography schools?? I might be able to find a learning photo student who has the equipment and would like to experiment???

    Vintagemyrna...actually it wasn't that expensive! I totally get the whole courage thing! lol

    Pinups everywhere eating their hearts out now....

  12. Very nice! You look much more authentic than many of the "pin-ups" I've seen, it helps too that you aren't showing off a bunch of tattoos. Great photos!!!
