Amercia, Pinned Up in the Past


Pause for a moment and think. Think halter dresses and skater skirts. Think cool, coiffed hair and crisp, red lips. Then think about some of the best music, fashion and art you’ve seen recently, and you’ll realize that pin-up culture is back in a big way and better than ever. Celebrities from Katy Perry to Zooey Deschanel have embraced the retro vibe as their signature style, while shows like “Mad Men” and “Masters of Sex” are capitalizing on America’s affair with a bygone era. As these cultural icons gain steam, they’ve only fueled our hunger for everything vintage, and subsequently, pinup.


You’ve Got to Know These Tips for a Successful Boudoir Photography Shoot

Ditra-Flame_Home-Slider-A_008A Boudoir Photography shoot is one that is done in your lingerie or in as little clothing as you are comfortable with. Because this is such an intimate photo shoot, there are some things you should know before taking part in a boudoir shoot. If you have some ideas about how you want your boudoir photography experience to go, plan it out with your photographer so that you are both on the same page. Here are some tips to making this photo shoot a special event.

Wear Something Comfortable

Yes, you will want to look sexy for your boudoir shoot, but what is even more important than that is being comfortable. Whether you want to wear a corset, lingerie, or go au natural, being comfortable in your clothes will help you perfect your poses. For first time boudoir shoots, bring a few outfits to switch into or something less revealing if you change your mind about baring it all. If you are uncomfortable wearing your lingerie, you can still take sexy shoots in other clothes like tank tops, sheer clothing, skirts or a swimsuit.

Get Your Hair and Makeup Professionally Done

Whether you hire a professional makeup and hair artist or recruit a friend, make your boudoir photo shoot something luxurious; having people help you look gorgeous for your shoot will make you feel even sexier. Before doing makeup and hair, have an idea of the type of clothing you are going to wear and the style you are trying emulate. Then you can match your makeup and hairstyle to complete the perfect look.

Bring Accessories

The photography studio you go to will have props for you to use for your boudoir shoot, such as beds, sheets, and backdrops, but bring accessories with you. These accessories can include jewelry and shoes, as well as garters, thigh highs, and fishnet stockings. Even if you do not use all of your accessories, it is much better to have them with you than to come unprepared. You can bring all types of props with you depending on the theme of your shoot.

Be Yourself

To really capture your style and beauty, be yourself! The more comfortable you are with your surroundings and what you are wearing, the better photos you will take. Exuding sexiness might be important to you, but remember to have fun, as well. Highlight your best features by striking your favorite poses and taking suggestions from the photographer: they want to showcase your best side too!

Take Risks

If you have an outfit or a pose that you want to try, but might put you outside of your comfort zone, try it anyway! Think of this photo shoot as something special that you can admire for the rest of your life. It might make you nervous at first, but being adventurous will make you feel more confident about yourself and can even boost your self-esteem.
