I have some really brave friends!

A few months back during one of many girls nights, my friend Maria broke out her awesome new calendar with Gil Elvgren’s pinup art on it.  We had the idea to try to loosely recreate a few of his paintings in photos.  We had a ton of fun trying to find props and clothing.  By the way, someone help me find an old school yellow telephone!

Huge thanks to my models Maria, Abby, Jenna, and Nada.  And to our awesome makeup artist, Candle Kincade for making everyone retro-beautiful!

Contact me via Smitten Boudoir to schedule a pinup or boudoir session.
