Best of Main Line Party Pics!

Main Line Today Magazine held its Best of the Main Line and Western Suburbs 2009 Party, on Thursday, July 23. The event offered best of winners the opportunity to showcase their products for party attendees., which was estimated at over 1500 people.

Since I won Best Niche Photographer I had a booth at the event featuring my work and info on my Pinup Packages. On Display were new photos (which will soon be added to my website) as well as specialty items such as playing cards, calendars, mouse pads and magnets that my clients can have printed with their pinup photos. The playing cards and calendars were a big hit!

My stylist Raina and one of my clients, Courtney, who both looked gorgeous dressed as vintage pinups, helped work the event. It never hurts having pinup models to draw in a crowd!
Local celebrities Bam, April and Phil Margera as well as Channel 10 News Anchors Vai Sikahema and Glenn Hurricane Schwartz were among those in attendance.

The Sweetest Cupcake in Town

Flying Monkey Patisserie, at the Reading Terminal Market, is famous in Philly for baking the most amazing & delicious handcrafted sweets. From cupcakes to brownies to cookies and cakes, the selection is amazing and their coconut cupcakes make my heart skip a beat ... so yummy!

Flying Monkey owner & baker, Rebecca, posed as a pinup in late 2008, and recently posted her pinup pic on the patisserie's website. Of course Rebecca came fully prepared to her photo shoot with freshly made Pistachio and Pink Rose cupcakes, that we featured with her in the photo. Rebecca was a blast to shoot and of course, my stylists and I couldn't wait to dig into the cupcakes Rebecca kindly left us after her shoot was over!

If you haven't sampled one of Flying Monkey's sweet treats then be sure to make a special trip to the Reading Terminal Market or visit the new location that will be opening in September on 11th and Locust Streets in Philly. Your eyes will widen with excitement when you see the bakery cases filled with every type of cupcake imaginable!
