    A 1950's Girl at Heart

    She drives hot rods and fixes them up for car shows, she listens to Rockabilly and big band music, she's got the haircut, she's got the tattoos, she's got the clothes and accessories....and I'm envious!

    Corinne is a true 1950's girl at heart! I am so excited that Corinne came in for a session because I absolutely love photographing gals who are die-hards for the era. Love it, love it, lickity love it!

    Corinne brought a couple suitcases of stuff for us to play around with, which was awesome. It took us awhile to get started because she had so many options, but it was so worth it.

    She also brought her mom, who was a crack-up! Loved her too! Unfortunately, she didn't stay the whole time. For some reason, mom's who come in for their daughter's sessions are so much fun. They bring a lot of laughs, crazy comments, and embarrassing yet helpful advice. Three cheers for our "Session Moms", hip-hip-hooray!

    Photo #1: Looks like it came straight out of the "Chicago" movie set. Corinne brought her own ginormous martini glass. She collects them--Isn't she so interesting? If she had a reality show, I would so watch it! :)

    Photo #2: We had to squeeze in an Oriental theme...

    Photo #3: This candy girl is sssssizzzlin'!! I love the contrast of the bright, happy-go-lucky lollipop with the deep warm colors.

    Be sure to vote for your favorite photo so that Corinne can receive her free 8x10 print. The winning photo needs only 15 votes! Post your vote by clicking on the "Comments" link below.
