Last Saturday I went to an all day pin up shoot at Nick Boswell photography in Pasadena. It was a grand time. About 20-25 girls, 6 or so photographers and a whole lotta costuming going on. Some of the time I couldn’t tell if I was actually in a photography studio or a major studio costume department.

I knew in advance that some of the girls wanted help with hair, makeup and overall styling so I took the opportunity to lend a helping hand and packed upĀ  my beautifying arsenal of weapons.

As soon as I arrived I went to work on a few of the girls hair and makeup. I am not very experienced at making up other women, because I normally just do me. This was good practice for me, but also there was no room for messing up, because they were going to be photographed. I did my best and the girls appreciated it. Although they were thankful for my help, it truly was my pleasure and even beneficial for me to get practice.

A few of the lovely girls I got to practice on. If there is one thing I’ve learned to appreciate more after this day, it’s the art of liquid eyeliner!

Luckily, I was able to get behind the camera a few times myself in a few different looks. Because the day was so fast and overwhelming, taking my own pictures (with my cam) was not on my mind. And as I sit here and type this up, I am regretful I didn’t get more photos of all the action.

Hopefully sometime in the future, the professionally taken photos will start to pop up. One of my favorite looks of the day:

Overall, an awesome experience and I can’t wait to do it again! Practice makes perfect! Thanks for reading lovelies!
