Kansas City, I'm coming your way!!! {Kansas City Pinup Photography}

I'm happy to announce that this year I'm traveling out of state for a few mini-session days.  I can't wait to meet the pinup loving ladies in other cities! My first is coming up in just a week and a half, in Kansas City, MO! On Saturday, April 12th, I'll be setting up in a lovely 2 room suite at the Plaza Embassy Suites and shooting lots of lovely ladies. Kansas City cuties Devyn Beth and Katty Delux of Swoon will be doing hair and makeup for everyone, and I'll be shooting each attendee on 2 sets.  One romantic style set on the bed, and I'm also bringing a background and lots of fun summery prop choices for a full on cheesecake style pinup set.  I'll have cocktails and snacks available, and each client will get digital edits from each set. It's going to be an amazing day!

If you're a pinup model interested in magazine publication, know that I am on official photographer for Delicious Dolls Magazine, and I also work with many other popular pinup magazines, so I'll be more than happy to help you get submitted and published!

It's going to be a very fun day, and I only have a couple spots left.  If you would like to book one, email me at liz@photosbyliz.com for booking info!

TwoLips Burlesk Promo Shoot {Tulsa, OK Burlesque Photographer}





I don't think that I can say enough that I love the ladies of TwoLips Burlesk. This is my second time to do a promo shoot for them (if you want to see the first time, check it out here) and they're just the greatest! They've added some new members and some staff to their group since last time I worked with them.  We all had a ton of fun at the shoot, which was for promo photos for their March 1st show "ReTitillate the 918." By the way, if you haven't ever seen these ladies perform live, you really need to.  They are so talented and their shows are just plain fun to watch! Get all the info for the show on their website, here. Also, check out their awesome Steve Cluck shirts! He's an awesome Tulsa designer who will be at their show selling shirts, or you can buy your own here! In the meantime, if you want to see more photos from the shoot, including individual photos of each lovely gal, make sure to check out the burlesque photography album on the Pinup by Liz facebook page!

Check out Sara Saint Sin's Johnny Cash tribute shoot!

Happy New Year!I must say, 2013 was a pretty amazing year for Pinup by Liz.  I met and worked with so many beautiful ladies who I now call friends, I found some amazing girls who know quite a bit about vintage styles to create an awesome hair and makeup team, I had photos published in multiple national magazines, and so much more.  I'm so excited for what 2014 will bring.  I'm already planning lots of fun new sets for the Tulsa area, plus I'm setting up shoots in other areas around Oklahoma and in other states.  Starting with this weekend and an awesome vintage ironing board set I'll be bringing to Teaze Dance and Fitness in Oklahoma City. I still have some open slots, so if you're an OKC area pinup and want to come play, click here for more information.



I still have a handful of 2013 shoots to share.  Here's a fun one that I recently did with Sara Saint Sin.  She came up with the great idea to pay tribute to Johnny Cash by recreating some of his old photos.  I think we did a fantastic job capturing his spirit here.

Cat {Tulsa pin up and burlesque photographer}

I wanted to share a few photos from my shoot with Cat earlier this year.  We had a great time at her shoot, she's so fun to spend time with, and she brought donuts with her to the studio, so of course she made me love her instantly.  Cat is a burlesque dancer, performer, and all around cool chick who runs a Tulsa tattoo shop with her equally awesome husband Eric. Make sure to check them out at Tattoo Mysterium on Cherry Street!

Sara Saint Sin's shoot at Mercury Lounge {Tulsa pin up photography}

Oh me oh my I've fallen behind on blogging! My apologies! Time to catch up! I worked with so many lovely ladies over the last few months, I need to get to sharing them!

Let's start with Sara Saint Sin.  She had an awesome idea for a shoot, and we decided that Tulsa's Mercury Lounge, which is an awesome bar that hosts so many great acts, would be the perfect setting! I just love working with Sara and am so thankful that she continues to choose me to shoot her! Make sure you give her some love over on her Facebook page






I'm also happy to say that this shoot was published in the October 2013 issue of Garters and Grills Magazine! Sara got a page all to herself and it looks great!


If you want a fun shoot, contact me! I love trying out new ideas and locations!

Meet Tulsa's Most Deserving Woman - Jennie! {Oklahoma pin up photography}

Last month I participated in an awesome contest, and it was so fun! It was the Tulsa's Most Deserving Woman Contest, held by the awesome Cherry Street shop, Bubble Boutique and Gifts.  Basically women in the Tulsa area could be nominated to win this contest by friends and family for being an all around great person.  The winner was Jennie! She's a really sweet gal who does tons of volunteer work, works hard to support the causes she feels strongly about, and always is happy to help out friends and family. Her prize was a day of pampering that began with choosing a new dress, shoes and accessories from Bubble, getting a manicure and a cut, color and cute vintage hairstyle at Rick Craig Salon and professional makeup application by Ashlee Bivins.  Then she got to show off her new look in a photo shoot with me! We had a fantastic time and got some really great photos! Jennie was a natural when it comes to pinup!
