I have had the pleasure of working with this lady twice! She is a ton of fun and always turns out some amazing photographs, and if Vintage Flair is in tow, get ready for some sweet 80's dance parties!
I currently live in good ol' Fort Worth, Texas.. However I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV until the ripe ol' age of 21.
How did you get your store/business started?
It actually started on a whim. I was studying film photography in college for the heck of it.. (I had also taken it previously in highschool). I decided to do my final on subculture women. I did 2 shoots in pinup form just for kicks and aced the final. My friend who was a former pinup model asked if I wanted to start a business on the side so I went with it. We did some shoots just for fun, and people started seeing it..they asked to book shoots.. and it just snowballed. I am about to hit my 4 year anniversary and venture into year 5.. and I couldn't be happier.
What inspires you?
The weirdest things can inspire me. Amazing women. Ridiculously talented photographers. A dress. A movie.. even a song. I have this crazy mind that never stops going (even when I get sleep). I'm constantly thinking of new sets, themes, etc. Needless to say, I'm easily inspired from anything.
How long have you been open and what is some of your favorite items?
I started my business in December of 2007. My favorite items? I guess I would resort to shots I've done. Some of them include the gal with the pickup and huge T Bone steak. The gal with the grilled cheese and jack bottle. My Voodoo Queen set. The Russian in the Ice Cave. My Sea Siren. And then I always adore doing shoots of tattooed women. Really simple backgrounds and beautiful art all over.
What celebrity would you most like have praise your store/product(s)?
Oh wow.. um. Celebrity would be Dita Von Teese.. that would be a dream shoot of course. And of course I wouldn't mind a classic photographer if they were still around like Bernard of Hollywood or perhaps Bunny Yaeger.
If you had to use only one word to describe yourself, what would it be?
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Passive Aggressiveness. Bad Manners. OH and leaving that empty milk carton in the fridge.
What are your favorite websites?
I have so many! As far as things go with my business..I would say (clothing stuff)
and thats just a couple
What would people be surprised to learn about you?
A lot don't know that I'm a stay at home mom with 2 small kids. OR a classical trained pianist of 16 years
