Valentine’s Day Pin UP
I have always been fascinated with different time periods. When I was younger my obsession was with the Victorian era, but now it is everything between 1945-1965. I love everything about that time, especially the music (and of course the fashion!). When Valentine’s Day came up I knew that I wanted to do a pin up shoot based on the time when pin up became popular.
When I posted on my Facebook page that I was looking for models Cory Esha and Pretty Allen were more than happy to volunteer. Cory sent me the video clip to Kanye West’s “Gold Digger” for inspiration which is where I came up with some of my bolder color ideas. We played that song continuously in the studio, which gave us a great boost on energy for the photo shoot.
Last week when they walked into the studio I was so surprised to see their awesome outfits and of course their amazing vintage hairstyles. “I found some hair ideas online,” Cory told me after walking in at 9:30 that morning. To make the photographs look vintage I extensively edited several of my favorites. Enjoy!
I also have two more vintage pin up photo shoots to share so come back soon. As for this coming week, I may not be able to make any posts because I will be away for Spring break. Some of you may know that my boyfriend and I are planning on moving to Maryland mid May of this year. My wonderful friend Sasha has invited us to her home in Maryland this week for Spring break so that we may look at apartments. Wish me luck for the apartment search!
