Pinup by Liz - A look back and a look ahead

Happy 2018!  As it seems I do every year, I totally let this blog slack last year.  I'm trying yet again to get back to regular postings for the new year.  Starting with a quick look back.  2017 was pretty great for Pinup by Liz.  I photographed over 100 women both in studio and at multiple events.  In addition to having special guest Cherry Dollface visit the studio on her Spring tour, I also worked alongside her at both Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend and Nashville Boogie. My work was published in dozens of pinup magazines throughout the year, too many to mention here, plus my work was published on two covers during the year.  Once with a photo of Stacey B. Goode on the cover of Retro Dames Magazine,  and again on the cover of a pinup cookbook. I photographed clients at multiple local car shows, including the Stray Kat 500 in Dewey, OK, the Route 66 Patriotfest in Tulsa, OK, and the Route 66 Cruisers car show in Claremore, OK. I also had an art show with some of my pinup work at Lot 6 Art Bar and released a 2018 Pinup Calendar and had a fun release party for it. (Buy your calendar here by clicking here!) Here are a few behind the scenes photos from some of those events:

So much more happened in 2017 and we had so much fun!  I'm so thankful for each and every person who booked a shoot or supported me in any way!  Now we're looking forward to 2018.  I plan to attend and book shoots at some of the same events, and to expand on the boudoir side of my work, but pin up will always have a special place in my heart and I plan to continue shooting it too!  I will be adjusting some of our package offerings, and plan to work with clients to get your photos off of your computer and into some printed products like albums so that they can forever be keepsakes.
