So What is a Pin-Up?

Originating back in the 19th century, its popularity skyrocketed during the 1940’s with the start of WWII when. American G.I.’s were missing their sweethearts back home and would “pin up” photos of popular boudoir actresses in their bunks.

Tips for Preparing for Your Pin-Up photography Shoot:
Just as with any photo shoot, there are certain things you can do to feel more prepared and comfortable in front of the camera as a Pin-Up. Take these few extra steps to make sure you can relax and enjoy your session as much as possible!
With Pin-Ups, it’s all in the face! With the glowing skin, immaculate make up and flirtatious facial expressions, this is where the whole attitude of a Pin-Up shines through. Take a little time to practice different expressions in the mirror to figure out who your natural Pin-Up persona is. As silly as it may sound, it’ll make all the difference!
The same goes for poses! Pin-Ups are known for their seemingly innocent poses that are SO much more than that! Practice different poses along with facial expressions and you’ll soon find out which ones fit together perfectly. This preparation is simple yet it will give you the confidence to easily bring out your inner sex kitten in front of the camera.
It is very important that you wear clothing that fits your particular body shape correctly. Not every woman is the same size and shape, and Pin Ups are known for embracing the unique curves of every woman! Take advantage of this by choosing pieces that accentuate the areas of your body you feel most confident about. Love the shape of your waist? Than how about a bare midriff or clothing that cinches around that area? Proud of your lips? Than go bold! Pin-Ups practically invented fire engine red lip stick! There are so many different clothing and make up styles to choose from, but the most important thing is picking things that you feel comfortable and confident in.
