Pin up pictures!

Awhile back I mentioned that I was having some boudoir pictures taken by the lovely Heather at Fortuitous Photography. She came to the house and spent four hours taking pictures. She was so much fun and it was such a good time. (If you are in the Denver area, I really recommend her. Not only for the boudoir type pictures, but for family, baby, whatever type pictures. She's got a great eye and is full of good ideas!) I got to see the results of our photo shoot (187 pictures!) and I am so impressed! They turned out really nice. I'm thinking about making a calendar for my husband with some of them. I'm not sure I pulled of the pin up look though. I had a hard time with the sexy, pouty look. Do you know how hard it is to look sexy when someone is telling you to look sexy?

And so...the inspiration:And the result:

And there you have it...The Girl with the Flour in her hair, scantily clad. At first, I felt weird posting these and almost didn't, but then realized that I actually wear more in these pictures than when I wear my swimming suit. And I like these a lot, it was so much fun to do. I like the props, the feel of the photos. I like how my wrinkles and flaws are buffed out and my teeth are whitened, my pimples erased...why, it doesn't look like me at all! I love it!

Hot Mama! Yowza! You look great, so cute and sexy and happy!
I had some photos like these taken but I was not brave enough to post them. I love the props you used.

SMJ said...

You look beautiful! The pics are very classy but still sassy - how lucky that you found a photographer that you felt at ease with. Your calendar idea is perfect & I'm sure the hubs will love it!

I am so glad you posted these because the curiosity would have killed me. You look fantastic in all of them. I particularly love the black and white one you posted. You are sexy, cute, beautiful, gorgeous, and smart! Also, you should not feel weird about posting them because they really are not obscene in any way! I think the calendar idea is a winner.

Matty said...

Except for your profile picture where you are mostly turned away, I think this is the first I've seen what you look like.

Great photos. Now, as a man I can give you some advice. When you present these to your husband for the first time, be ready for some.....ahem.....romance.

Mrsblogalot said...

You go Hot Mama!!!! These are gorgeous!

Expect a very happy husband! (-:

Camille said...

They turned out great! :D He's sure to love them!

Suz said...

These are wonderful. I'm not sure at my age I could pull of the full body shot. It would require a lot or air brushing!! But I have been tempted!

Your husband will love them.

Chari said...

Raelene said...

Wow!!!! Gorgeous pictures, you did awesome!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I love it too. You're a natural in front of the camera. I can't wait to hear how hubby reacts. He's going to want them all over your bedroom walls. You are gorgeous!

Brian Miller said...

Just Breathe said...

Good for you. They came out nice.
Your right, I don't see anything wrong with posting these.

Existential Waitress said...

What a cool idea! You look amazing - and what husband wouldn't LOVE this? He's one lucky guy...

Susan Fobes said...

She came to your home? That alone would have made me feel more comfortable. I like the b/w one the best because it looks "mysterious..." Your husband will love these!

Good Lawd! Those are awesome pictures. If your husband doesn't totally freak out with happiness he must be BLIND!

My name is PJ. said...

You felt weird posting these? If I looked like you dressed like this, it would be what I wore to grocery shop, to PTO meetings at school, and to church honey!

Smashing!!!!! Beautiful!!!

brainella said...

Woo hoo, sexy girl. These are gorgeous pictures. You are a definite pin-up!

Andrea (ace1028) said...

You look BEAUTIFUL! These are fantastic. Makes me think it might not be a bad gift idea, and yet, I'm pretty sure all my shots would have me cracking up! ;) I love the 2nd one, really just so beautiful!

Debbie said...

These are incredible! You should be very pleased with how they turned out.

Hair Bows & Guitar Picks said...

I love them all!!

Dawn said...

I so LOVE the pinup poses! I always say I should have been an adult in the 30's and 40's... those ladies knew how to be ladies and sexy and proper all at once.

Seriously Why Can't I? said...

These are so great. I especially like the black and white where you aren't looking at the camera but you have a little smirk like you know it is there. Great job. Makes me want to hire her to come to the Springs.
Thanks for sharing, that took some guts.

The Waylaid Wordsmith said...

Fantastic! You look great! I think the second one is my favourite.

Looks like you had a great time...what an awesome Valentine's Day gift!

Molly said...

wow, you look amazing! Loved the black and whites the best.

Tattoos and Teething Rings said...

You look amazing! I wish I had the courage; maybe if all the photographers I knew weren't men and I could shed about 15 pounds...maybe. I bet your husband is gonna flip!!

Dianna@KennedyAdventures said...

You look amazing!! I'm trying to get up the courage to go, here in our area. I'm going to get it done this year! Thanks for sharing and inspiring us!

They are all amazing---so pretty and very tasteful, etc...my favorite is the one of you sitting on the chair kneeling forward a bit--so cute! I vote for a calendar for hubs. And now I kinda wanna do one, too!
