After a year in the making, I am so excited to release 88 pages of classic and vintage styled pin-up images in my special edition of Retro Lovely Magazine! To mark this occasion, myself and a few friends (including burlesque queens and the rum king, Sailor Jerry) are throwing a huge party on December 4th. Tickets are only $10 and are on sale now at www.ticketfly.com. There are a ton of cool events and prizes happening during the evening. Read below for more details...


Come celebrate the release of the Celeste Giuliano Photography Special Edition of Retro Lovely Magazine, on Sunday, December 4, 7p.m., The Balcony at the Trocadero in Philadelphia, PA.

Inspired by the Trocadero's history as being a burlesque house in Philadelphia during the 1950's, Celeste Giuliano's Pin-up Peep Show is bringing the Burly-Q back! Joining the party will be some of Philly's finest performers including members of The Hellcats and the Infamous Miss Mae. Each will be performing classic sets from a golden era of burlesque.

Also, to help celebrate, will be Sailor Jerry, a company synonymous with the art of the pin-up. Sailor Jerry will be on hand with complimentary samplings of their rum and classic drink specials all night long.

And if that wasn't enough, there will be great door prizes and raffles, including a chance to win a gift certificate to Malena's Vintage Boutique, a Retro Lovely Magazine Box Set (valued at $200), and a Dr. Sketchy's Gift Basket. Also, with every purchase (or pre-order) of the magazine, you will be entered in a drawing to win a complimentary pin-up photo shoot with Celeste Giuliano Photography! These Special Edition Magazines will be available for $15.00 and models from the magazine will be on hand to sign your copy!

And last but not least, there will be an opportunity for one lucky lady to be immortalized as a pin-up by dozens of artists at Dr. Sketchy's Philadelphia. Just come dressed in your best pin-up attire, and one girl will be selected to be the featured pin-up model during an upcoming Dr. Sketchy's and Celeste Giuliano pin-up drawing session.

With tons of classic pin-up girls, burlesque performances, retro rum drinks and sweet swing music, this is an event that will make you feel like you are back in the 1950's! The Trocadero is located at 1003 Arch Street, Philadelphia, Pa. This is a 21+ event and doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are on sale now.

This image taken at the Simeon Foundation Automotive Museum features cover model, Lorraine, posing with a 1921 Duesenberg Race Car. This car was one of three cars that entered the Grand Prix at Le Mans in 1921.

A HUGE thank you to Dr. Simeon and his staff for allowing us access for the entire day - it was definitely a highlight of my career!

Exclusive Behind The Scenes Video from Retro Lovely Magazine Photo Shoot!

I am so happy to announce that I have finally finished shooting content for my Retro Lovely Special Edition. The last shoot took place on location in October and thanks to Robot Mouse, I have a SPECTAULAR one of a kind behind the scenes video for everyone to view. This shoot was based off of my love of old black and white horror movies such as The Uninvited and The Old Dark House which features the beautiful damsel in distress.

The shoot was on location in West Chester, Pa and the wardrobe was provided by the award winning Malena's Vintage Boutique. My gorgoeus model, Sarah, spent the day being "terrorized" by a derranged killer a.k.a my husband Dave.

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO!!!!


And don't forget to pre-order your copy of the Celeste Giuliano Photography Special Edition of Retro Lovely to see all the images from this horror shoot. The magazine, featuring 88 pages of all new, unseen work will be available in early December.

My Client Blair Creates Amazing Art!

I adore my clients - it is that simple!
I am so fortunate to meet so many talented and creative women and Blair Barbour is one of them.

Blair, who is a collage artist and videographer, recently posed for her second time as a pinup. She just launched her website BlairBarbour.com and needed new images to help promote herself and her artwork. I was very excited to help her create a perfect and unique look for her website photos.

Since Blair creates the most amazing collages using mainly scissors and paper, we decided to focus one of her sets around these two props as they are important aspects of her artwork and creative process. Blair loved the simplicity of the Vargas style photos so we chose to emulate that for our first set.



For her second set Blair wanted a series of images she could utilize and change on the main page of her website and below are just a few of the many images that Blair is currently using. I loved that she used the striped Victorian parasol I purchased at an auction only a few days prior to her shoot - that was a lucky and timely find!






Blair will be displaying and selling her artwork at the prestigious Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show this weekend, June 4-June 6. The show runs from 11 am-7pm Friday and Saturday and from 11am-5pm on Sunday. She will be located at Booth 65, right across from the Dorchester so be sure to stop by and check out her one-of-a-kind collages at the art show or on her website.

Interview for Stylish Thought


I was recently interview by my client Fajr for her website Stylish Thought which is an online collection of essays about any and everything stylish. In Fajr words..."Stylish Thought is a mash up of runway commentary mixed with a bit of social satire. Think Imelda Marcos meets Bell Hooks meets Wanda Sykes.Think Imelda Marcos meets Bell Hooks meets Wanda Sykes."

I was ecstatic when Fajr contacted me in January asking if she could interview me for a feature titled "Women who WERK!" She described this feature as highlighting dynamic, creative female entrepreneurs so I was honored that she thought of me for this.

Check out my Stylish Thought: Women Who Werk Interview.

Below is a photo of Fajr from her day as a pinup. Thanks again Fajr for including my in this feature - it is greatly appreciated!

Pinup Photos Are Perfect For Business Promotion!

Tons of my clients who are business owners or who are just starting their own business schedule pinup photo shoots to promote their profession.

One recent example of this comes from a client, Joelene, who just began her own business called In Your Shoes Event Design!

When Jolene scheduled her photo shoot she told me that she would be using our pinup photos for business promotion on her website! I was so excited to hear that so the planning began as to what set and props would match the look and feel of her site as well as what wardrobe choice would be appropriate. We decided to base the set around a pair of black, white and red polka dot shoes that Jolene would be wearing for the shoot since this was the color scheme she would be using on all her promotion materials.

Jolene's website is finally up and running so visit In Your Shoes Event Design to see Jolene's photos as well as to get details on her amazing business!
