2008 Pinup Update

2008 has been a very exciting and very busy year at my studio!

So far this year over 250 clients have booked pinup photo sessions and have enjoyed their unique and fun experience being transformed into vintage beauties.

In between photographing clients, I did find time to take several special "high concept" pinup photos for my portfolio which I will be adding to the website in the next month - so keep checking back! These photos were months in the making and are inspired by some of my favorite classic pinup illustrations. A few of these new images will also be featured in a soon to be released book "For The Boys:Pinups For The Troops." The book should be available for purchase in November so ordering details will be posted here on my blog as soon as it is published.

Vimby.com featured an amazing documentary on my pinup work which was chosen to be shown during the Digital Film and Video Festival in Cannes, France and the Editor of Philadelphia Maven Magazine, Michelle Denton, wrote about her day as a pinup for a feature article on the magazine's website.
PHILADELPHIA MAVEN MAGAZINE

In addition to all this I also recently tied the knot with my guy, Dave!

Life couldn't be better and I am eternally grateful that every day I get to wake up and look forward to "going to work!"
I love being a pinup photographer and having the opportunity to meet so many amazing women.
It is because of all the positive feedback that I receive from clients and from fans of pinup art that I continue to do what I do.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support and keep checking back for my new pinup images which will be added to the galleries soon!

xoxo,
Celeste

Booking Pinup Sessions into September & October!

As of now I am booking all pinup packages (Half Day, Full Day, Pinup Party and Pinup For The Troops) into September and October. If you're thinking of posing as a pinup in '08 and especially if you'd like to give your sexy shots as a gift for the holidays then I would suggest booking soon! The pinups are very, very popular holiday presents and as many of you know I will be getting married and going on my honeymoon in the fall. This means that there are fewer appointments available during the holiday pinup rush and dates are already booking super fast so it's a great idea to schedule now. Remember I do book 1-2 months in advance so you can never plan too early - especially for a gift that is so special and unique!

New Pinups Soon To Be Published In A Book!



I am so excited to be part of an amazing pinup book, "For The Boys: Pinups For The Troops."

The book was first published last year by Rocket Science Productions and the 2nd edition will be out in about a month with even more pinup photos - including three of my images! The 156-page, glossy, full-color collectors edition will feature pristeen Gil Elvgren illustrations and photo re-creations by myself and other photographers from all over the country.

The three illustrations I chose to recreate are some of my all time favorite Elvgren paintings and my team and I worked very, very hard to get the photos to closely ressemble the original illustrations. Here is a sneak peak at one of the my photos based off of Gil Elvgren's "Overexposed."

Keep checking back for more info & photos. As soon as the 2nd edition is published I will have all the info on how you can purchase a copy for yourself or show your support by purchasing a copy for a troop overseas.

WMMR's Kathy & Marisa Rock the Pinups!


Today, Kathy and Marisa from 93.3 WMMR's Preston and Steve Show spent the day at the studio posing as pinups! I love working with Kathy and Marisa - we all have a great time and they know how to work the camera as vintage vixens. The shoot lasted for about 6 hours since we did three different pinup poses - but time flies when you are having fun. I took over 400 images and have a lot of editing to do but I can't wait to see how the photos turned out! The best shots of the day are definitely from the set where both Kathy and Marisa rocked their pinup style while cooking steaks and hot dogs on a BBQ! What else can I say ... two sexy gals ... garters ... grilling ... use your imagination! Keep checking back as I will be posting a few of the photos on my blog within the next few weeks. Much thanks to my stylists Kirsten and Raina for working their magic and transforming the gals into pinup perfection!

Pinup video for vimby.com

Josh Coyne, an amazingly talented filmmaker, recently visited my studio to film a piece on my pinup photography for vimby.com, a video content company devoted to capturing young lifestyle and culture all over the nation. One of my favorite pinup gals, Courtney, was posing for me that day. She really worked hard  - especially on that vintage exercise machine - which we did have on for many of the photos ... how else would she get such realistic caught in the moment pinup expressions! Of course my stylists, Kirsten and Raina did all the makeup & hair! Josh's video turned out perfect - he does such great work. I am so excited to forever have such an awesome piece on my photography!

The Perfect Pinup Proposal


Congrats to Heather & Dan who recently became engaged during Heather's Pinup Session in early March. Dan contacted me hoping to not only surprise his beautiful gal, Heather, with a pinup session but also to surprise her with an engagement ring. Props to Dan for thinking of such a unique proposal idea!!! The proposal was amazing - Heather was completely taken by surprise - and the excitement of the moment brought tears to all our eyes. Myself and my stylists (Kirsten & Raina) were super excited to be a part of something so amazing and special. We wish Heather and Dan the best of luck!!!
