*****All photos and links to Windy City pin-up have been removed from
my blog as I can no longer recommend working with the photographer.*****
At this point, I'm sure you all are wondering if I am going to post about anything other than my Day of the Dead shoot with Windy City Pin-up. Well, the truth is, I'm probably going to obsess about it through at least the end of November, because it was THAT much fun.
The ladies of Windy City Pin-up made me feel so comfortable; which is really saying a lot because I usually feel so self-conscious when other people take my photos. They were both so much fun and sweet too. Even if I wasn't getting photos out of the deal, I think it would have been totally worth the price just for the opportunity of getting to spend the day playing dress-up with these fun ladies.
If you live in the Chicago area, I highly recommend you check them out, and don't forget to tell them I sent you! If you don't have much spare cash, they offer a limited number of spots for a theme photo shoot at a highly discounted price every couple months; if you subscribe to have their blog e-mailed to you (click the "+ Follow" icon in the bottom right corner of their blog), you can ensure you will be one of the first to be notified and you will have a better chance of snagging one of the limited number of spots.
Timmy took these "behind the scenes" photos at the photoshoot...
An hour into the shoot. We went over wardrobe ideas, put the corset on (but hadn't tightened it), and hair was mostly done.
An hour and a half into the shoot. Makeup was about a third of the way done. (Corset still loose.)
Two hours into the shoot. Makeup almost done.
Two and a half hours into the shoot. Almost ready for photos; just a few more finishing touches with hair and makeup, and then time to tighten the corset.
