Pin-up photo shoots have been gaining popularity. Pin-up girls like Marilyn Monroe are a throwback to an older, more glamorous era. But this is more than just playing dress up; pin-up culture can celebrate femininity in a slyly flirty way and encourage women to embrace their body types, whatever they may be.


Brooklyn, N.Y,. is a hub of pin-up culture. Start at the Brooklyn Pin-Up School to learn the tricks of the trade, including hair, make-up and vintage dressing, co-founded by Anna Patin, the owner/photographer at Lucy La Riot, and Renee DiDio, the owner of SlapBack, a neo-vintage boutique.



After getting dressed to the nines, book a session at Lucy La Riot’s retro photo studio and choose from many styles of pin-up photography, including noir, classic, burlesque and boudoir.


Other photo studios, like Shameless in Brooklyn and San Francisco also specialize in pin-up shoots. Their playful photo shoots garnered national attention and their studio is often busy. Be sure to book an appointment ahead of time.


Explore this glamorous fashion era and get all dolled up.
