Photographing Jane Love

I had the pleasure of photographing tattooed alternative model Jane Love in the studio last week.

She is an alternative/conceptual model who always has the most colorful and vibrant hair to match her explosive personality.

Alex Jankowski of Arrogant Beauty came in and rocked out Jane's hair and makeup..... absolutely loved what Alex did with Jane's hair!

I chose a moodier lighting until Jane started to smile, that image was meant to be brighter ;)

Also since Jane stands out I wanted to keep the background simple and we shot on a black background and made her the main focus. 

Here are my favorite images from our shoot.

Wedding Season is beginning!

Brides are already booking for their pre wedding boudoir shoots!

Besides a great gift for your groom to be, it's a great way to document all the hard work you've put into getting in shape for your big day!

We customize packages per client, I have found out that every bride wants something different..... digital files, albums, calendars...  Some like to use my hair and makeup team, others like to come after their hair and makeup trial to shoot.  We like to collaborate with your ideas.

Here are some bridal boudoir inspired images of our model of 2015, Carley Coakley.  Her hair and makeup was done by the talented Michelle Mink.

I recommend scheduling at least 25 days before the big day to insure we get your products to you in time!

Happy Valentine's Day from Revival Pinups Photography!

Moll Mag has shown Revival Pinups some love today on Valentine's Day...... to celebrate I thought I would share some images from our Valentine's Day inspired shoot with model Carley Coakley.  Hair and Makeup provided by the talented Michelle Mink.

I love working with Carley because she can ooze sex appeal without giving it all away..... you can still be sexy and cover up if you wish to.  Whatever your comfort level may be, we can get amazing images of you that you will cherish for many years to come.

Happy Valentine's Day from Revival Pinups!

Moms are bringing sexy back!

I first met Jill on a Living Social deal I had for family photography Holiday portraits for my Lori K Sapio photography studio.  She came in with her adorable son and husband, and I forged an instant bond with her.

After discussing it for awhile, I had her come in for her first Boudoir shoot when her son had just turned a year old.  She was a bit apprehensive about showing some of her body parts.  While we had her in hair and makeup, I eased her worries and came up with our game plan.

Jill is also a bridal gown designer (her work is amazing), so of course she would come with a lot of options.... more options are better than none.

We went through her wardrobe and decided that we would shoot a couple of different gowns/dresses, a vintage slip and a bra/panty set.  You can be sexy without showing it all.

Jill killed it and I feel her nerves were at ease once we finished the shoot.......

I just wrapped another boudoir shoot in the studio with a Mom I met for her family's Holiday portraits this past December...... I love that these Moms are bringing sexy back!
