Pin Up Glam Shots in Hammonton, NJ

While the term pin-up was first used in 1941, the style dates back to the 1890’s. The term pin-up is used because these photographs are meant to be pinned up. Pin-up girls are risque but never explicit; always fiercely independent- remember Rosie the Riveter.

While this style of photography waned a bit in popularity, it never really left. Lately it has again become wildly popular. It certainly is a fun way to spend a few hours. Hair and make-up are done followed by a portrait session. Who wouldn’t want their very own set of photographs emulating strength and sexiness?!

PinUp Shoot

I have always wanted to try my hand at a Pin Up Shoot.  So my stylist, Carmen from Salon 649 in Hammonton, NJ, said she would do the hair and makeup.  And our friend Ruby said she would model.  One Atlantic was so kind to let me use their amazing facility as a location for the shoot.
