This is Part 2 to the pin-up photo shoot series.
Here are the links to Part 1 (list of patterns used) and Part 3 (finished product.)
Before makeup or wardrobe I had to sit down with the photographer, the amazing Christine Moody at Trimood Photography. Here is just a taste of what she can do.
We had to go over all the lighting, background, and poses. Really I just showed her pictures I liked and she figured all the rest out. Here is all my compiled pictures on Pintrest.
Next was hair and make-up. All I had to do was show Shiree Collier this photo and she made it happen. See what else she can do here.
She brings an arsenal of make-up and hair supplies.
First she does the hair. Here is a picture of both my mom and I getting our hair curled.
While my hair was still in pin curls, Shiree did my pin-up make-up. This is pre lips.
This took about 45 minutes to turn me into a pin-up model.
Next was the photo shoot. I don't have photos of this since my mom was getting her hair completed and make-up applied (and it would spoil Part 3 of the series).
What I can tell you is making your body look like the pin-up photos is not easy. I feel like I did 3 hours of intense yoga. There's a lot of sucking in your stomach while twisting every body part.
I have a new found respect for models. I was sore for a good 2 days after the shoot.
My mom and I got bacon covered cheesy bread and wine at The Rock afterward to celebrate a fun afternoon. I highly recommend walking around with full hair and make-up if you want some attention!
