When women search around Instagram, Pinterest and good ‘ol Google for the best Chicago boudoir photographers, pinup photography normally gets overlooked. But those who truly love Chicago pinup photography now just how much darn fun these sessions really are.

And sure, the standard lingerie available out in today’s world is absolutely stunning, but there’s nothing quite like a good pinup session.

Here’s just a few reasons why I love Chicago pinup photography, in particular.

First, the people are amazing.

I’ve traveled all around the world, and there’s something truly special about the women I have photographed around Illinois and Indiana. Beautiful on the outside, beautiful on the inside, so supportive, and incredibly real through-and-through.

Secondly, just how many women are up for having a great time.

Yes, there might be my camera involved in having a great time, but it’s so much more than that. It’s really about building connections and making the most out of the session together. And with so many of my boudoir and pinup clients, we become and remain friends for much longer than just the time we work together.

These reasons by themselves is why I absolutely love being a Chicago pinup & boudoir photographer, but I could list on so many other reasons.

For now, check out some of the Chicago pinup photography I’ve captured over the last 12+ years.

Right off the bat, consider the different styles of pinup photography and how you want to have your photos look when we shoot together. And think about everything from the tips of your toes to the style of hair and the props you use.

There’s also a lot to consider when choosing the backdrop!

And the first thing to consider when choosing the backdrop is the outfit. So, shop around! Both the Chicago area as well as all the smaller cities between there and Northwest Indiana have so many cute little boutiques where you can look around – but in this day-and-age, there’s really nothing simpler than shopping around for pinup outfits online.

Check out this cute online shop called Pinup Girl Clothing.

Of course, there’s always Amazon Pinup clothes, too. As well as RetroGlam.

Look how cute this is, too!!

As you can see, there’s really so many different options for you to choose from. There’s really no bad option, too – which is fantastic!

So, what’s my biggest and most important advice to make the most out of your Chicago pinup photography session?

Simply put, it’s to just be yourself and have FUN! From just look through some of the pinup photos above of all of those gorgeous women, you can tell how personality is really the biggest factor to making the most out of your session.

Laugh, joke around, giggle, get out of your comfort zone, and simply lean into the character you’re playing. Pretend to be Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, Lana Turner, Lucille Ball, or whoever else you want to emulate.

You honestly can’t go wrong. I’ll even help you throughout the process and lend my professional suggestions.

Just come, have fun, and get ready for an incredible experience together! Let’s do this thing!
