One Image Wednesday – Pinup

This Wednesday, we are talking about pinup photography. It’s flirty and fun photography with a retro twist. Imagine yourself in the glamorous hair, makeup, and clothing styles from the 40s, 50s, or 60s.  Or you can pick another time period, if you like. Your transformation starts with hair and makeup styling, then add some pearls, some vintage props, and imagination to take you back in time and around the world. At mellBella, we spend some extra time and magic to transport you to the wild, wild west, across the pond, or who knows? We even have a selection of outfits and accessories that you can borrow from the mellBella Closet as part of your session. Of course, you will want to bring at least 2 outfits or more or even you’re whole closet. We’ll help you pick the best looks for your pinup journey.  So whether you want to be Marilyn Monroe or Bettie Page, we have lots of ideas for you. Where do you want to go?
