Phew. Okay, so I’ve been waiting a YEAR to post these photos! Last year in late October I had a wonderful opportunity to work with Miss Ellie Retrophilia. She is a GRORGEOUS pin up model and a fantastic make up artist. Seriously, I recommend any brides or ladies looking to do portraits (especially pin up) check her out. She is professional to the max and is great conversation. I met Ellie at the Karb Kings Rockabilly Rumble in October of 2012, and I believe she will be at the Rumble that is happening tomorrow here in Fredericksburg. October is an exciting and busy month for me, one of my busiest actually, so I really wanted to share these photos with you guys before I get swamped! I did not have time last year to share them and by the time I got around to having the time to sit down and edit personal work like this, it just didn’t make sense to share photos of witches and kitties. So I hope you enjoy them! Ellie makes the most adorable little classic witch and is fierce in that catsuit! MEOW!
I’m most excited to unveil the photos of Silks Vintage Lingerie + Photography new studio space inside of Merle Norman Cosmetics! And guess what?! Siobhan Young Photography has been cast in the role of official Photographer! Yep that’s right! Yours truly will be featured as the new pin up and boudoir photographer for the “photography” portion of Silks Vintage Lingerie + Photography! (I just used the words photography and photographer way too many times in those few sentences, but I’m so excited, I don’t even mind).
I have worked with SVL in the past, and am excited about continuing my work with them in 2014. It’s such a unique business concept that it excites and delights me as a photographer – I get to do what I do best and have so many interesting ideas and sets to play with! SVL has lingerie for sale, and is inside a makeup/hair studio. The marriage of set design, outfits, hair/makeup and photography all came together to make this crazy powerhouse concept a dream reality. So, if you want to get your significant other a special gift for Valentine’s Day, or want to have a girls night out for a Bachelorette, you can book anything from a private boudoir session to a pin up party!
Check out a peek inside the storefront and studio below! And just FIY, That’s My Dress! is also located within the store. So if you are a bride looking for a gown, stop by Merle Norman! You can chat with a makeup artist, shop for a dress and even take a peek at having your bachelorette party or private photo shoot done for a gift to you or your partner AND walk away with a piece of lingerie. It’s a stress free one stop shop!
