Week of July 27th

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

I’m afraid I slacked on my blog this week, but I finally caught up. This image is my little Ella with my Providencepinup.com business partner, LuLu.

I’m very excited about this new project. Below is a detailed explaination of what we are doing.


Providencepinup.com, a one-stop hair, make-up and photography shop dedicated to the pin-up tradition and style of Betty Page, Alberto Vargas and Zoe Mozert. Providencepinup.com offers studio sessions where women can have their hair and make-up professionally styled and choose from an impressive array of vintage Inspired clothing for a personal photo shoot.

Providencepinup.com caters to women of all ages and body types, as the professional staff understands how to capture the unique beauty in every woman. Like pin-up art in general, providencepinup.com photo sessions run the gamut from playful to sexy, you can say Maryanne to Ginger. Providencepinup.com believes that pin-up art is a celebration of woman’s independence and sexuality which rejects the misogyny evoked by today’s emaciated, botoxed and “enhanced”

professional models as well as the whole “Girl-Gone-Wild” ethos.

Studio offerings range from individual sessions to entire bachelorette parties. Extras include your image on calendars and playing cards in the classic Varga Girl tradition. Providencepinup.com is a proud sponsor of Providence Roller Derby and can be found in many of Providence’s finest tattoo parlors. Package

prices begin at $295.

I had no weddings last weekend. I did work for The Power Chord Academy, which is a rock and roll summer camp. The kids are so funny. I saw one camper dressed like Kiss. PCA has a mystery guess/working band every session to play a show then do a Q&A after. This is Reign of Kindo. They were very jazz meets indie. I don’t think the kids got how good they were.




Providencepinup.com is up. Very exciting!! LuLu will be at Roller
Derby promoting on Friday. Our next workshop date is August 17th. There are still spots open. Email me for more info.



Weekend of July 12th

I photographed the R. wedding this weekend. They had the perfect summer day. This photo reminds me of sailing for some reason. ryan_568-copy.jpg

I’ve been very excited about the feed back of Providencepinup.com The site is up. I will have more to talk about it soon. LuLu and I have been talking everyday about ideas.

Back from the Beach

Monday, July 7th, 2008

I’m back from vacation and I feel great. Oskar and Ella both loved the beach. It was so great to spend time with my family in the summer. I had a great time doing beach sessions. Here are some of the photos.




I hope to do this again next year.

Before I left I had a great shoot. I’ve been working with Lu Lu, a very talented Providence-based hair stylus. We both love pin-up girls and have begun to hold sessions where you can have your hair and makeup done and pose for 1940’s style “pin-up” photos. We are soon going on-line with, Providencepinup.com. We are also available for Bachelorette parties.

Here is a sample from our promo shoot.
