Stray Kat 500 2014

The girls from my pinup hair and makeup team, Katie Belle & Bootleg Betty, both competed in the contest.

 Jaime, who I've had the pleasure of working with in the past, was crowned Miss Kitty 2014!

Want to know what my favorite car show in Oklahoma is?  The Stray Kat 500 in Dewey, Oklahoma! Not only are the streets of Dewey lined with hundreds of beautiful custom vintage cars, there is live rockabilly music, pinstripers and other artists, and my favorite part, the Miss Kitty pinup contest! I had the amazing opportunity to help out with the pinup contest this year had a great time.  I just have to say that we have a really fantastic pinup community here in Oklahoma, and I am so lucky to get to be involved with all of these wonderful ladies. If you follow me on Instagram (@photosbyliz) then you were lucky enough to see some of the behind the scenes fun! The pinup contest went great, and a past client of mine, Jaime, was the winner!  Here are a few photos from the event.

Rub a dub dub, pin ups in the tub! {Tulsa Pinup Photographer}

Have I mentioned that we have some really fun themed mini session days here at Pinup by Liz?  Well we do! Most of the time they're at the downtown Tulsa studio, but sometimes we travel to other places too! My hair and makeup ladies, Bootleg Betty and Katie Belle, also happen to be very creative and crafty.  When the three of us put our brains together, we come up with some awesome sets! We have a few great ones coming up throughout the coming year.  I always post them on my Facebook fan page first and they always sell out within a few days, so make sure to become a fan of the page so you can get in on these fun mini session days!  (Click here to like and follow the Pinup by Liz page on Facebook!)

Here's one that we did a few months ago.  We rented a ball & claw tub and had it delivered to the studio for a fun bath set! I love how even on the exact same set and with minimal clothing, each girl's personality still shines through in their photos!

To ask about upcoming mini session days, or to book your own private individual session with any theme you wish, email me at

Looking for something to do this weekend?

This is a huge weekend in Tulsa, there are two really great shows coming up on May 16th and 17th, both happening at The Shrine in downtown Tulsa!

Friday night is Rhinestone Roundup.  Shake It Dance and Fitness Studio in Sand Springs is celebrating their one year anniversary and throwing a huge party in the form of an awesome variety show! Belly dance, variety acts, burlesque and a pinup contest.  I'm happy to be a sponsor and I'll be there shooting the show! There are so many great acts involved, you won't want to miss it! To buy tickets in advance online you can click here, or you can get them at ticket outlets around Tulsa like Starship and Reasors, or you can get them at the door on Friday.

And then on Saturday night, come back to The Shrine for another night of burlesque and variety acts! The girls of TwoLips Burlesk and many other Tulsa performers are coming together for a benefit show to help one of their own.  A donation at the door gets you in.  I've donated a couple awesome items that will be available for auction, a deck of signed pinup playing cards and a signed print of the TwoLips Burlesk crew! There will be other great items too!

Hope to see you this weekend! Come and get your fill of pretty ladies and talented performances!

Why hello there!

I haven't had a blog post in a hot minute so I guess it's about time to share a little of what I've been up to.  I've been traveling quite a bit this year and met some amazing pinups and I have all sorts of stories to tell! But for now, I think I'll just catch you up on some of the great pinups that I photographed last year and never had a chance to blog.  There are more, but I'll start with these few beautiful ladies. For me, photos always tell the story better than words ever could!
