    The Pin-up Cowgirl

    Our vintage inspiration...

    Yep folks, what we have below is our first cowgirl pin-up girl. Why we haven't tried it before, I don't know, but thanks to Katie, we will soon be offering a similar cowgirl set as an option.

    Katie's so cool because she came prepared with her own rope, saddle, rug, hat, and boots. We had so much fun with her props! I love it when people come in with fantabulous ideas!!

    Plus Katie had a meaningful reason for wanting to do a Pin-up & Boudoir Session with us: As a treat for herself! (Do you need a better reason?)

    This is one of my favorites from the session. It's a perfect pin-up curvy pose and expression! Beautiful!
