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?

Rockabillaque 2015 Recap: Daytime

We had so much fun at Rockabillaque in Park Circle! We had the privilege of being on the BBQ Joint stage and hosting the Miss Rockabillaque contest. Many lovely ladies showed off their pinup and rockabilly style. Thankfully, we didn’t have to judge because all the ladies looked amazing! We even had one contestant borrow shoes from our mellBella Closet to complete her look. The winner of Miss Rockabillaque 2015 is named Bella! How perfect is that? She won a FREE Pinup Session with our studio including hair and makeup.

In our booth, we got to share our Pinup Photos, some looks from the mellBella Closet, and explain a little about the mellBella experience with several potential Bella Beauties. Ladies also got to enter our drawing for a chance to win another FREE Pinup Session with us, but everyone got to walk away from our booth with a little something. We can’t wait to see Maxine again, the winner of our drawing to rock her pinup personality at her session.   rockabillaque2015-0006 rockabillaque2015-0005 Everyone was so friendly, and they keep asking to take a photo of or with Mell Bell and Wanda.

A very special thank you to our dear friend Sarah of Sarah Pearson- Hair and Makeup Artisty for doing hair in the perfect pinup styles for the event and for helping out in our booth to share the mellBella Pinup experience.

Lowcountry Highrollers Team

A few months ago, our studio was full with almost 40 women in skates. Why skates, you ask? They are the proud, the strong, the beautiful, and dare I say, bad ass women of Charleston’s own roller derby team The Lowcountry Highrollers. Be sure to check them out at their next bout and follow them on Facebook for some extra awesomeness.

We took tons of photos, and our fabulous artist composited the individual photos to create the huge team photo seen above. Special thanks to the amazing styling of Sarah Pearson- Hair and Makeup Artistry who worked tirelessly all day with her team to bring a little extra va-va-voom. Here’s just a few of their fierce and fun individual photos. We love The Lowcountry Highrollers!
