For a very long time now I have wanted to get into pin up photography. Not just the boudoir version but just the creative, fun version of stepping back in time just a little bit. What I love most is when it's with a twist and the model is tattooed and beautiful. We are a generation of art enthusiasts and so many of us now are finding our love of art is expressed best on our bodies. I think body ink is gorgeous and something that should be meaningful to each individual person. But I digress and that is a blog for another time. This blog is about my first pin up shoot. When Katrina posted on Facebook that she was looking for a pin up shoot, I was so excited. I looked at her pictures and just knew she would be perfect.
The bonus? SHE WAS PERFECT! This girl is so smart, funny, beautiful and yeah she's FUNNY! She's got an infectious laugh and knows how to work her sass. She gets it and it was a super easy shoot. My challenge was working with props and setting up the set just right. I see where my room to grow is in this department and with time I see this getting better and better. In the meantime, I had so much fun shooting this girl and meeting her wonderful and supportive boyfriend Corey.
Oh and one last thing. This girl...this WOMAN...is a United States Navy Sailor. Let's all take a minute to admire and thank a woman who serves her country with pride and still makes sure she's all woman! Katrina is truly a Pin Up Princess in my book. Katrina - Thank you profusely for your service to our country and for rocking it out in front of my camera. XOXO
