    Definately Not From Boringville

    Those of us from the land of Boringville think that if you had a photo shoot at noon the next day, you would try to get a good night's rest to make sure you looked your brightest. But not Julie. She's a Rockstar. She can party all night, rest a few hours, get up and perform for a photo session, all while looking fabulous.

    The night before her Pin-up & Boudoir Session, Julie shared a screamin' Bachelor/Bachelorette party with her future hubby in Sacramento. Because they're not from Sacramento, Julie couldn't just leave her man snoozing on the couch the next day while she went off to her photo shoot. So she had to wake up, drag her man into the car, and tote him along with her throughout the day.

    During the shoot, Julie's man slept in the car blasting the AC. What a patient guy! Lord knows a hangover in 100 degree weather is nothing to fool around with. What kept him from bursting through the door, begging for water, and pleading for the whole shoot fiasco to be over? Knowing that the pay-off would be as sweet as fried twinkies. The sexiest gift a gal can give to her guy.

    Photo #1: "In His Shirt." A woman wearin' a man's shirt always raises a man's eyebrows.
    Photo #2: "And Lift, And Lift, And One More." A little Pin-up flava on our "Hawaiian Holiday" photo set.

    Photo #3: "Too Hot For the Beach, Baby."

    Photo #4:"Paying Attention to the Details." For some reason, strategically putting on a pair of high heels always looks hizzzot.

    Photo #5: "Being Half-Dressed Makes Me Giggle."

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