Amazing Miss A – Thorold, Niagara, Ontario, Pinup Photography

Miss A. found me through the internet search and even if she lives two hours drive away from my residential photography studio decided to trust me in creating something really special for this year’s Valentines Day. Her man had no idea and would never expect her to do this, as she is normally a very shy person. After our chat at the consultation meeting we’ve agreed on the outfits and props for the full pinup session with hair and makeup to make sure she looked and felt the best being a pinup model. To make her session even more fun, she arranged for her friend to have a boudoir session on the same day.

I could never expect that day to be so wonderful. From 10:00 am to 7:00 pm we all had an amazing time. We had so much fun it was hard to say good bye. I also can’t wait to have them back in the studio.

This is what she had to say after she picked up her album. “Loved, loved, LOVED my experience with you. You already know that Melissa and I will remember you and our time together forever. I know no other way to feel more sexy and like a beautiful woman than to go through your photographic transformation. I can’t wait to come back for more!”

Pin-up as a Gift ~ Niagara Pinup Photography

Heather wanted to give her husband an anniversary gift he’d never forget. He loves hockey. A lot. She snuck out a bunch of his gear to do this shoot. He had no idea.

She was apprehensive about getting the makeup done. The red lips. She doesn’t typically wear makeup, let alone red lipstick. But with the support of a friend and the advice of ourselves and the makeup artist, she chose to go all the way. Out of her comfort zone. Doing something different, something new, something awesome. The results were perfect.

Melissa ~ Niagara Pin-up Photography

Here is a sneak peak at the process of a pin-up shoot. Melissa had her hair done by Lorraine at Stone Mill Salon & Spa before coming to the studio. Her makeup was done by Sandra, from Before and After Makeup. We love working with Sandra, as she always brings the exact right kind of energy, among her fantastic makeup skills. It doesn’t seem like work when everyone is doing what they love, while chatting and laughing.

Melissa had the French maid outfit all ready to go for the shoot and we had to think of another idea as well. I asked Melissa if her husband had any favorite foods. Apples. Apple pie. Apple crisp. Apples disappear quickly in her household.

Here is a little taste of her shoot. Her husband will just have to wait and see what else we did…

Melissa Danuta and Joanna! I absolutly LOVED this session with the both of you! This is my second time doing this kind of shoot and I didn’t know how it could get any better but it did. I loved the energy and how the session flowed so well, it went by so fast and I had so much fun while I was doing it!
I loved my look and the whole process of make up and hair this time it was new and fun for me. The planning process really helped me pull together my look and make it just right for me to enjoy and feel good in front of the camera.
I really think every woman needs to do this for themselves at least once-it’s an amazing feeling to see how beautiful you truly are-surprise yourself and do it for you, you won’t regret it.

Thanks again so very much-Melissa

Stef ~ Niagara Blushing Pinup Art

Pin-up clothing, or 1950’s style clothing in general isn’t easy to find. And let’s face it, the clothing has the ability to make or break the pin-up shot. We are thrilled that lovely Stef has opened a retro clothing boutique called Betties and Bombshells in Niagara Falls! This store is a fantastic way for ladies in the Niagara region to find alternative clothing. Online shopping is great, but it is also really nice to be able to try something on or see it in person before purchasing it. If you’re looking to do a pin-up shoot, Stef will happily help you choose something that you’ll feel beautiful in. You can go to Betties and Bombshells Facebook page HERE

Meet Stef! She’s wearing clothing from her store, you should probably go check it out in person. Just sayin’

Blushing Pinup Girls – Niagara Pinup Photography

December was a busy month. We thought we’d show you a sample of some pin-ups that we did.

C. got her hair done so perfectly that it took 8 washes to get all the product out. I’m kidding of course, but you get the picture. Her friend Sarah from the Storm Hair Group in St. Catharines did her hair and we couldn’t have been happier seeing her walk through our door! Here are a couple of samples from her shoot. We loved the rolling pin that she brought in that belongs to her boyfriend’s grandmother!

Shantelle came for both boudoir (coming soon) and pin-up photos as a gift for her fiance. Sometimes we wait for the right girl to do a specific pose. Shantelle was the perfect girl for the first pose you see. She makes it look easy but it’s actually pretty difficult to hold. The second photo was kind of a joke. Shantelle has some Polish roots in her family. Combine that with us being full on immigrant Polish, and you see the results in the second photo.

Natalie had her photos taken as a gift from her godmother. She had seen a pin-up photo with oranges as the prop that she liked so we customized a different look with apples. Here are two of our favorite apple themed photos.

Barb as Pinup Girl – Niagara Pin-up Photography

Meet Barb. Some people just have something about them that helps you immediately spot them in a room. For me, it’s my laugh. I couldn’t hide from anyone if I tried. For Barb, it’s her hair pieces and shoes (with makeup to match!). After a week of educating ourselves in different aspects of the photography business at NSI, we had a pin-up session with Barb so she could have photos that captured her and her favorite things. We were all exhausted after what seemed like 20 hour days of learning, so this was the perfect way to end the week. Barb brought a suitcase of stuff for us to work with, which made it super personalized and fun. If you live in the London area, check her out at Barb Weir Photography

It’s always beneficial for the person who’s used to taking photos, to be IN the photos. We’d like to thank Barb for being a great model!

More Pin-up Art – Niagara and Toronto Pin-up Photographer

Here are a few more photos from recent pin-up shoot! This beautiful young lady collects vintage cameras and they were a perfect prop for this session. We love it when clients bring something of their own to use in a session. It not only brings out character and personality, but it also ensures no two pin-ups will be the same. Thank you Aleks for bringing all those cameras!

Vintage Pin-Up ~ Niagara Pin-Up Photographer

Here are just two of our favorite photos from our last Blushing Pin-Up day! Shawnna’s husband works in construction so she was a sexy construction gal. Aleks has a massive collection of old cameras so this shot shows her as the paparazzi. We had an amazing time helping these lovely ladies playing these roles. There were fits of laughter and we hope every woman that day felt like they were in another world. Makeup and dress-up and hilarious posing made for a very fun day. Here is a vintage look at two of the photos.

More Pin-ups – Toronto, Hamilton and Niagara Pin-up Photography

I really enjoy working on Pin-up images. They are by far the most fun and bring me a lot of satisfaction when I’m done with them. Mike Long from Portland Pin-ups is the man that got me hooked on them. I already, had a chance to learn from Mike three times and will most probably learn from him again at future workshops and seminars. Thanks Mike for sharing your knowledge with others!!
