Mom goes pin up- A gorgeous girl and a rusty old truck
a journey of going from being a
young woman, to a mom, and back again!
I met Melissa about 3 years ago. Her friend had a pin up party (girls night!) and she booked a spot. There’s a shot of her laying laying down, hair fanned out, corset fitting perfectly, and it still stands as one of my favorite pin up shots I’ve ever done, to date. Her expression just screamed true pin up, which to me is sass and confidence.
Thinking about who she is now… the fact that in person she is so genuinely sweet and happy… well… again, true pin up. About a year or so after that we came back together again to do a maternity shoot. A very, very last minute maternity shoot. We’re talking days before her daughter was expected to be here! But we made it and those were amazing as well. I was ecstatic to find out my perfect little pin up was coming back to me again this year for another shoot!! By this time her goal of dropping the baby weight had happened and she looked phenomenal.
The first part of her session undoubtedly reminds me of Gilligan’s Island Mary Ann. Just that perfect, innocent, fun beautiful girl. This wasn’t done on purpose, and I think it’s mostly the outfit and the hair, but…
When Melissa showed me what she had put together for the second part of our session I almost died! Polka dots and stockings. Oh my gosh. And buttons down the skirt… I just love it! This part was so much fun! As much as this was a wonderful way for her to put a mile marker on this time in her life and her progression of going from a petite young woman, to pregnant, to a mom, and back again… I heard her hubby was pretty happy with everything too! Take a look!
