January 2015 Pinup Magazine Publications {Tulsa pinup photographer}

One of the most fun things about regularly working with pin up models is submitting the photos to pinup magazines for publication! There are a number of pinup magazines around the world, and I'm proud to say that I usually average 1-2 publications each month, and sometimes more!  January happened to be a pretty busy month for Oklahoma pinup girls to get published! Here are all of the magazines and publications that I had in the month of January.  If you're interested in publication, book a shoot with me!  I am an official photographer for a few pinup magazines, and I'm regularly published in many more.   I can guarantee publication to any client who wishes to have her photos published! I can even handle all of the submission for you! Here are all of the Pinup by Liz publications from last month:

Babycake Blonde of Tulsa, OK in the January 2015 issue of Calendar Girls Magazine. 
Hair by Cherry Dollface, Makeup by Katie Belle

 My first magazine cover publication for 2015!  Bootleg Betty on the cover of Southern Pinups Magazine's holiday edition, which came out in early January 2015.  

 Bootleg Betty again featured in the Costume edition of Drive-In Magazine, published January 2015

 Miss May-I featured in the January issue of Classique Elegance Magazine.

3 lovely clients of mine were featured on one page of this January issue of Delicious Dolls Magazine!

Hair and makeup on all three ladies is Bootleg Betty and Katie Belle

And two lovelies were published in the January issue of Perfectly Pinup Magazine! Jenni Foxx and Miss May-I! 

I'm also proud to say that I had multiple photos of Tulsa and Oklahoma City area pinup clients published in an Oklahoma Pin Up Girls coffee table book!  I haven't received my copy yet, so no photos to post, but I'll be getting soon at a release party that's happening in Tulsa!  Can't wait!

If you want to get in on all this fun, do a pinup shoot and submit for publication, email me at to book a shoot and I'll be more than happy to help you out!

Valentine Kissing Booth Pinup Photo Shoot

 We love our mini session days at Pinup by Liz!  We do themed pinup mini session days monthly, and we constantly strive to come up with fun themes with highly detailed sets for our clients to shoot on.  As I said in my last blog post, pin up mini session days are always so much fun and often end up like a party for Oklahoma pinups! For our Valentine themed mini session photo shoot, we decided to do a vintage kissing booth set! It was so much fun!  Thankfully, Mr. Pinup by Liz is pretty handy and built us a lovely kissing booth prop for the studio.  By the way!  We are in a new photography studio now!  It's located in the heart of downtown Tulsa and we have so many great plans for the space.  This was our first mini session day in the new studio and it couldn't have gone any better! Here are just a few of the lovely ladies that were at the Valentine's pin up mini session day.

Upcoming pinup mini sessions!

Hi! It's been awhile! I've been so busy with photo shoots and pin up fun that I haven't been the best blogger lately, but let's try to change that, shall we? First, let's talk about pinup mini sessions and some of our upcoming events! If you've never attended a mini session day at the studio, they are SO FUN! It's a great way to dip your feet into the world of pinup. We have snacks and drinks available, great rockabilly music playing, and it's a super fun environment. We have fun themes on detailed sets that are often only offered for the mini session day, and since we shoot clients back to back, a mini session day often feel more like a party! Here are some of the mini session days and other events that we are booking right now:

Cherry Dollface is coming back to Tulsa and will be at my studio again on March 14th and 15th!  Although the mini session day has already sold out, there are still openings for her classes on March 14th.  She's teaching a vintage hair styling class and a pinup modeling class, and I promise, you don't want to miss these!  For more info or to book, email her directly at

Want to be a mermaid?  We can help you with that! We're transforming the studio into an underwater playland complete with a giant clamshell set.  Tails in multiple colors and sizes will be provided for you to wear in the shoot.  This promises to be a super fun day, and we only have a few spots left, so email me to book!

 Team Pinup by Liz is returning to Oklahoma City!  We always love working with OKC ladies and this time we're bringing our Bettie Page tribute pinup bondage set.  This is a super fun set to shoot!

 Car show season is returning, and Pinup by Liz kicks it off with the Stray Kat 500 in Dewey, OK.  I'm offering a limited number of discounted car show shoots on May 2nd and 3rd.  Last year every pretty lady that shot with me and asked to be submitted to a magazine was published.  One girl even landed a cover!  

This will be my first year to shoot at Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender and I'm so excited!  Although my hotel shoots are already sold out, I've opened up some discounted spots at the car show on Saturday.  Email  me at to book!

Pinup and boudoir mini sessions! {Tulsa pin up photographer}

Tulsa ladies!  Looking for a fun and unique holiday gift for your significant other this year? How about sexy photos? We're offering two fun holiday themed mini session options this November!

Our first is Kitschy Christmas on November 2nd! It will take place at my downtown Tulsa studio.  We'll re-create a full 50's living room for the set, complete with at vintage couch, retro tv, and a 1950's aluminum Christmas tree! You could wear a cute pinup style dress, vintage style lingerie, or anything else you can come up with!

Our second is the shoot in the new suite tower at the Hard Rock Hotel in Catoosa, OK.  We'll shoot on the bed, which features a very sexy white headboard, and the furniture in the room to get you some steamy pictures.  You can choose to keep a vintage style look here, or if you're looking for something more modern boudoir style, this is the shoot for you!

Both shoots feature hair and makeup styling, snacks and cocktails, pose direction, and 5 fully edited digital files with print release. I also offer a wide variety of albums and other photo products that are great for gift giving.

If neither of these mini session options are what you're looking for, you can also book a private session and choose your own sets and themes! Check out my website, for pricing details on private sessions.

Either way, make sure you book your session before November 30th! Team Liz is taking the month of December off!

Email me at to book your appointment!

Pinup laundry line set {Tulsa pin up photographer}

This was such a fun mini session day!  My favorite thing about mini session days is seeing how each girl makes the same set their own by bringing different outfits, and just their own style.  Check out these domestic divas!  As always, my girls Bootleg Betty & Katie Belle did a fantastic job on hair and makeup on everyone.  If you want information about upcoming mini session days, or if you would like to book your own private session where you can choose a theme, like the laundry line set or anything else you can dream up, email me at!

Rhinestone Roundup 2014 {Tulsa event photography}

Last month there was a great event in Tulsa called Rhinestone Roundup hosted on by the Sand Springs studio Shake It Dance & Fitness.  The show featured bellydance, burlesque, and a lovely pinup contest and many special guests including Princess Farhana of Hollywood.  I had a wonderful time seeing all of the ladies perform and I was lucky enough to be hired to shoot the event.  Here are a few of the photos I got, click here to see them all in their album on my facebook page.
