Frequently Asked Questions

What is your cancellation policy?

All session deposits are non-refundable. Should you need to reschedule I require at least 14 days notice prior to your session date. You will be allowed to reschedule 1 time and apply your deposit. If you reschedule more than once you will be required to put down another deposit.

Do you only

photograph models?

No!  Most of my clients are everyday women. I love the makeover process of turning a  modern  gal into a gorgeous pinup and seeing their face when they see how amazing they look. EVERY woman should do a pinup session! Its a great way to boost your self esteem, pamper yourself for a day and create a wonderful memory!

I give  complete instruction on posing like a pinup. No experience  required! Please don’t be nervous about not knowing how to pose!  I guide you the whole way through, I help you with suggestion for wardrobe you should bring and  help you pick a theme just right for you!

Due to safety reasons and the comfort of our all female team and clientele Absolutely no Men are allowed in our Studio, We do Not work with Men we do not know.

Do you provide wardrobe?

We do not provide wardrobe But will help you with suggestions on what to bring and where to shop!

My Favorite websites for Pinup costumes and amazing lingerie are:

There are areas of my figure I want to hide, is this possible?

Yes, while posing pinup we can show only as much or as little as you are comfortable showing..I can pose you in ways to accentuate your figure and minimize your trouble areas. I also retouch my photos to make you look pinup perfect! Please let me know during our consultation about any areas that make you self conscious and I can keep that in mind.

Can I choose my own themes for the session?

Yes, I want you to have a unique theme with your interest or hobbies included.

Im Nervous May I bring a friend to my photoshoot?

I understand some girls feel they need to bring a friend to the session because they feel shy or nervous. You may bring a friend to your consultation to see the studio and discuss wardrobe.  I recommend for you to come to your scheduled photo shoot session alone, I prefer a closed set with just myself and the client & makeup artist , for best results. In my experience I highly recomend not bringing husbands and boyfriends as they can make you nervous watching you pose and effect the final outcome of your photo’s. Plus its so much more exciting for them to see the final outcome of your photos!

How should I prepare for my shoot?

After booking your session with Girlie Show Photography I will email you a prep-sheet, so you arrive prepped and ready for hair and makeup! Please arrive with day old product free straight hair. If your hair is extremely curly we ask that you straighten it as much as possible, as the hair stylist will not have the time required to straighten your hair.  Please bring a robe, flip flops or slippers, a  nude strapless bra and a nude thong panty to wear under my wardrobe.

I suggest google searching some pinup models (Bernie Dexter is amazing!) to get a better understanding of posing and the types of faces and personality in pinup modeling. Its not a bad idea to practice your smiles and that classic pinup “ooh face”! Pinup posing and modeling can be so much fun! your photos will reflect how much personality you put into them! get ready to do some fun poses and cute faces!  I will be there with you every step of the way!
