Pin Up Photo Shoot | Military Aviation Museum

Pin up photo shootTwo weeks ago, I packed my camera gear in the car, fueled up at Starbucks, and made the trek out to the Military Aviation Museum in Pungo for a pin up photo shoot. With gorgeous retro hair and makeup, adorable vintage outfits, and beautifully restored military aircrafts from World Wars I and II; the recipe was perfect for amazing photographs! Throw in three stunning (and fearless) models, and the result are the gorgeous pictures found on todays blog!

Two out of the three models came ready to rock and roll, and the third gorgeous gal went straight to hair and makeup to get transformed into a vintage vixen for this pin up photo shoot! Wendy and Stephanie rocked it out, getting Kristin all glammed up, and when she put her outfit on, it was complete!

After hair and makeup were complete, the models headed out to the hangars and took turns posing with the different planes, giving a variety of different planes, and making sure that each snap of the shutter yielded a different pose/smile/expression.
As someone who knows nothing about modeling, I was completely blown away by the talent of these ladies and all they were able to accomplish! Bravo gals!
