A Classic Pinup Session for a Classy Lady

My first shoot with Capitol Bombshell was a unique one with its colorful and slightly dark Day of the Dead theme, and I very much enjoyed doing something a little different for that one. But I also very much enjoyed getting back to classic cheesecake with our most recent shoot together. It was so much fun to recreate some of the art that drew me to pinup modeling in the first place. 

With the help of The Capitol Bombshell team and the use of some of the vintage props from their impressive collection, we were able to put together some pretty faithful recreations. Starting with great pinup art for inspiration and having the expert guidance of Capitol Bombshell, I felt confident enough to play with the over the top cheesecake expressions and just have fun in front of the camera. I love how the photos turned out, and I can't wait to bring another classic pinup piece to life!

That's not even to mention the creative Christmas concepts we shot afterwards. First up was a magical, if slightly mischievous elf scene, followed by the real challenge: The Nutcracker AND Clara... both played by me, in the same photo. And to make things more difficult, I had the great idea to wear toe shoes for Clara, despite not having done ballet since I was four years old. Through Capitol Bombshell's talent and a little bit of Christmas magic, we managed to get some fantastic shots of Clara en pointe with The Nutcracker as her dance partner. I'm sure the out takes are numerous and hilarious, as I tried to balance on my tiptoes. The Capitol Bombshell team was helpful and patient throughout the process, and the results speak for themselves. Thanks again for another wonderful experience and the chance to dare, embrace, and unleash!
