    Pin-up Girl Gina: O'hoy Mates!

    Gina is an aspiring Pin-up Model. She's going to add the photos from this shoot to her portfolio (whoop whoop!). Can you believe she's a mommy too?!

    Achieving an attractive Pin-up pose isn't very easy to do. It literally involves posing from head to fingers to toes. It takes just enough concentration and discomfort to make you (and me) sweat. But Miss Gina glided through her poses like butter! She "popped" right into her poses and needed little direction. 2 star stickers for her!

    There were so many great photos from Gina's session that I had a hard time choosing which one's to post!

    Photo #1: "Simply Classic". Ain't it cute? I'm proud to say that we carry this sailor girl dress in many sizes at our studio.

    Photo #2: "You Don't Say?" This is actually one of my favorites because it's a great shot of Gina's side-sweeping hair. I also like the "muchness" of her eyes--large eyes look fab in photos. ;)

    Photo #3: "Ducks, Bubbles, and Pointed Toes".

    This photo was featured in PinupLifestyle.com as a featured photo of the month! Yeah baby, yeah!

    (Don't you just love browsing through new pin-up sites?)

    Photo #4: "Sultry Eyes." Her makeup is just flawless! I actually envy those eyebrows....gimme gimme now!

    Photo #5: "Just Right." I have nothing more to say. Period.

    Be sure to vote for your favorite photo so that Gina can receive her free 8x10 print. The winning photo needs only 10 votes! Post your vote by clicking on the "Comments" link below.
