Polish DeVille Sailor Pinup Shoot

After some difficulty with the gray backdrop (I won’t use it again!) causing lots of time in Photoshop, I am so happy with the results of these photos!

I was lucky enough to shoot with Polish DeVille for the mermaid shoot and at the Cherry Bomb car show (where we first met!)

She’s an amazing model, and if you can even believe it she’s a newbie to the pinup world!

I love how much she works to make her photos and costuming perfect and am so glad to have her as a client!

Pinup Perfect Posing Pointers

I had SO much fun during the posing class a few weekends ago.
It was an incredible day- full of coffee, nervous jitters, sweet lovely ladies and lots of photos!
I held it at Studio VaVaVoom, which is a burlesque studio based in Tempe, AZ.
I enlisted the help of pinup modeling experts Stevie Rosalie and Kandy K.
We had an amazing day and I got lots of awesome shots of pretty girls, but for now here’s the behind the scenes.

I am the luckiest lady!


A few months after we started dating, my amazing partner, Mike, encouraged me to start doing photography again.

After being very frustrated at the lack of help my photography degree provided for my career, I hadn’t done very much shooting in about a year or so. Mike saw that I was passionate about it and told me that I should keep going. And he hasn’t stopped telling me that. He’s told me to keep going so many times, I don’t even know what I would do without him. He was the reason I quit my day job and started pursuing photography full time. He’s the one who comes up with all “my” best ideas. He’s the one who makes me feel better when business is slow and when a shoot doesn’t go as planned. He’s my sounding board and my best friend.

The photo above is from one of the first times he was around for a shoot and I asked him to step in so I could test the light. This is his awesome pose.
