Casey and Dallas are friends and coworkers that wanted to do a modern pinup shoot. I consider modern pinup to be pinup influenced without the vintage clothing or hair, yet bringing in the fun, expression and posing.
We booked Union 206 and chose to use the boudoir studio for this shoot. The day started with hair and makeup with the lovely Mary Hair and makeup artist. After primping and packing up the car we headed to the studio for the shoot.
A few things to think about before you show up for a boudoir or pinup style shoot
1. Get a good nights sleep
2. Drink a lot of water to hydrate your skin
3. EAT before the shoot, don't go in hungry
4. Shave your legs and armpits
5. Think about the fun and get ready for an experience where you will love being in your own skin
The studio session was two hours and we worked each model back and forth. While I worked with one the other was right there shouting encouragement, having fun and prepping for her turn.
We shot a lot of different scenes and found the Casey and Dallas are very different looks while both being major fun to work with. The giggling level was high and we had a hard time being serious. I don't even know what I did when they both declared that I was the best photographer ever! High praise indeed.
Here are a few of the images from our session. Bringing a friend along can really make the session more fun and relaxing
