Lowcountry Highrollers in our Studio!

A couple of weeks ago we had the privilege of meeting and photographing nearly 40 amazing, hard core, beautiful women! The Lowcountry Highrollers came in for head shots as well as rockabilly/pinup photos. It was a whirlwind of hair, makeup, smiling, laughing, “heeeyyyyyyyy” and just plain awesomeness!

We had so much fun with these ladies!
