This week we had the pleasure of working with Niki Luparelli . This ReVamped session was inspired by Marilyn Monroe very last photo shoot(The Lost Nudes) by Lawrence Schiller the day before she passed. We have been seeing  many images of Marilyn lately because we are a few weeks from the  50th anniversary of her tragic death.

To see more of these images they will exclusively will be published to The Niki Luparelli and the Gold Digger’s FB page.

ReVamped Little Queenie at Horseneck Beach and Sayles Mill Photo Collabrative

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

This week Revamped session was with the amazing model Queenie at Horseneck Beach Westport, Ma.

This session was inspired by photographer and model Bunny Yeager.

Born in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania, U.S. Yeager became one of the most photographed models in Miami. After retiring from modeling, she began her career behind the camera. She met Bettie Page in 1954, and took most of the photographs of her that year.[1] Along with photographer Irving Klaw, Yeager played a role in helping to make Page famous, particularly with her photos in Playboy magazine.[1] Yeager is also credited with discovering the model Lisa Winters.[citation needed] Following Page’s retirement, Yeager remained a successful photographer. She took the well-known still images of Ursula Andress on the beach in the 1962 James Bond film Dr. No, and discovered many other notable models.[1] In 1968 she played the role of a Swedish masseuse opposite Frank Sinatra in Lady In Cement.[1]

When I first started to really photograph Pin- up a few years ago in my searches I had come across Bunny Yeager’s website.

At the time was was still working. I had ordered a many of her books and they all came signed. How amazing and what an inspiration. I still have her business card in a place or honor in my studio.

For more images and movie from this session Check out the Vintage Girl Studios Blog or The VGS Facebook page.

Where have I been!

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

I know  have not been blogging on this site but that is about to change. Vintage Girl Studios has been such a  success that it has almost taken over my studio. So much so that I have limited the weddings I do per year.  Now that the new studio has been completed and VGS is moving in the direction I hoped for, some real thought and attention will be going into updating this site.  This will be starting weekly. I have started a New Facebook Page  for KHP where I will be adding images weekly.  I have added a 2010 and 2011 to the wedding gallery on this site. Keep posted for more images here!!

I’ve been a bit busy this spring with engagement sittings.  It is so great to have some more one-on-one time with my couples.  I love asking how the wedding plans are coming along.Untitled-2

I’ve also been doing a lot of work in the studio on Vintage Girl Studios as well.   There is a lot of things in 2010 planned for this new project. Remember, KHP clients will receive a special rate for this service.   Check out the Vintage Girl Studios site.
