Vintage Pinup

What is Sue-Style Boudoir Photography? 

Sue has a different take on boudoir photography than most photographers. For her, portrait photography, even boudoir photography, is all about connection, glamour, and fashion-style imagery. This shoot revolves around a glamour version of vintage pinup. It asks the question, what would you find if you did a search for vogue pinup? And it teaches you everything you need to know about how to achieve it.


Posing and Setup  

With just a normal chalkboard backdrop, a strobe light for a fashion look, 3 apple boxes, and a gorgeous set of vintage-style lingerie, you’ve got the building blocks for a stunning vintage pinup photoshoot. So get ready to learn how to take control of your set and create the playful imagery of a 60s vintage pinup poster. Your next step will be learning how to achieve that beautiful hourglass shape through giving the right direction to your client, while always remembering the face is the most important.

Shoot – Vintage Pinup Perfection  

See Sue work her magic on set with a gorgeous model. You’ll follow along as Sue talks you through adjusting the light, adjusting camera settings, setting hair, and working through movement to shape the body into that perfect ‘S’ curve.

Starting from the feet, you’ll learn how to free up the hips and arms for motion. You’ll learn all about extension, expression, and the difference between what feels good for your client vs what the camera sees. You’ll have a view on the whole shoot as it progresses alongside each image Sue captures.

You’ll see various silhouettes from different eras as Sue shows you how to pose – from standing, to sitting, to staggering with apple boxes. You’ll see why some poses just won’t work and how others come through perfectly when you achieve proper perspective as the photographer. Most of all, you’ll learn how to create that carefree, playful, sexy, cute energy of a 1960s vintage pinup poster in this vintage boudoir photography shoot.


Retouching #1 – Bright Eyes and the Wow Shot!  

A professional boudoir photography session isn’t finished until the perfect images have been selected and retouched. Here Sue takes you through all the images from the vintage pinup photoshoot. She’ll show you how she chooses the 10 images she knows her clients will love, how to find the “Wow Shot” that you’ll want for your folio, website, and wall, and just which shots their romantic partner will love the most.

Next, she’ll take you through how to make these bright-eyed beauties even more vintage in appearance, including what effects to use on the hair to bring even more volume and drama to the look. You’ll even learn how to bring feet back into perspective. You won’t want to miss this so that you can be sure to choose the beautiful boudoir photos your clients will love so much and just have to buy!

Sue is not just a mentor, in the area of photography; she's a life coach in the area of living. Simply put, The Portrait System, was the best investment I have made into myself, and my business, since it began! David Lee
The Portrait System allowed me to grow from hobbyist with a borrowed camera and a dream, to professional portrait photographer with a six-figure business. There is no way I would be here without her education. Cat Ford-Coates
The Portrait System has given me ALL of the tools needed to take me from a "shoot and burn" photographer making less then $200 a session to a portrait photographer with a studio and over a $1200 average and growing in less than 4 months. Ashley Lindsey
The Portrait System has been the single-most impactful thing I've incorporated into growing my business, and in many ways, my life! Andrew Knowles
Building a successful and sustainable photography business is no secret anymore. The Portrait System provides you with every tool you need to master your craft, how to market and sell and overall how to become the best version of yourself. You just have to do the work! Ursula Schmitz
By far the best investment you will ever make for your business and for yourself. I will never let my subscription lapse. Never. Liz Wikstrom Barlak
In my photography journey, I have tried many educational platforms, but none felt as comprehensive as The Portrait System. Without a doubt, if not for Sue and her teachings, I would not be seeing the level of business success that I am seeing today. Neon Howe
