What’s up party people?! Hope y’all are enjoying this fabulous summer weather! I know our family has been. We took a little 4 day camping weekend with our kiddos recently and it was nice to have a relaxing break from home, work, and technology for lil bit!
Pin Up Costume Contest
A couple weeks ago we held our first Pin-Up Girl Costume Contest at the 2013 Erie’s Wild Rib Cook Off and Music Festival, held in the Perry Square Gazebo. The ladies from Head Cases Salon of Erie, PA were there to help us out with hair and make-up applying victory rolls and cat-eyes so that everyone looked the part. Each girl had a mini photo shoot with yours truly, and then worked the crowd to encourage votes. It was a great success and we had fourteen beautiful pin-up girls participate in the contest! Angela Laird was our first place winner, followed by many other stunning ladies! As the winner, she received a prize pack including a full Pin Up photo shoot with us and gift certificate to Head Cases Salon. Everyone looked great and we had so much fun!

First Place Winner
It was also exciting to see one of our friends and partners, Gretchen Cash (and her daughter and a friend) all decked out in the vintage flair that she loves to sell. Gretchen owns Retrospect – a funky thrift store on West Lake Road in Erie, PA near the airport. She is a 50’s girl at heart and carries many items that are affordable and definitely worth checking out! She has even supplied our studio with tons of clothing and props to use in our studio for photo shoots!

Anyhoo, we have been very busy with wedding photography, boudoir photo shoots, and editing but will update again soon. We are also acquiring a bunch of fun vintage props for the studio, taking part in classic car cruise-ins, and brewing up some other snazzy shenanigans! Stay tuned….
