Rene’s Pin Up Session
In 2012 I had the great pleasure in photographing Matt and Rene’s beach wedding. It will always be one of my favorite weddings I have ever photographed. It was so intimate, endearing and genuine. Rene is a peach! She even made me a little gift basket with a sweet thank you card and gave it to me after the wedding!
Fast forward a little over a year and Matt is stationed in Japan without Rene! She was going to finally get to see him for Christmas (flying out Christmas Eve!) and she wanted something special for her husband and asked me to do a Pin Up session for her. There is no question how adorable she is and how much fun we had shooting these! I am not sharing the “for the husband’s eyes only” ones, but those are so flirty and fantastic as well! I am the luckiest to have a friend who has the coolest house in the world (Airstream in the backyard!) who is generous enough to let me shoot there any time. Pin Ups are one of my favorite things. I am in love with 50’s style (i.e. Cateye glasses) so shooting a Pin Up was a blast. Because of the perfect location and the multiple wardrobe changes we are able to get a great variety of poses. Rene’s cousin Mandy, who is a wonderful makeup artist did her make up and I did her hair. I am really looking forward to shooting more Pin Ups this year! I would love to know which photos are your favorite so leave a comment below!
