Terribly Girly's Naughty or Nice Holiday Pin-Up Event!

We're getting geared up for the holidays by offering super sexy or delectably sweet holiday pinup photo shoots! This is a fun way to treat yourself and your honey to a unique gift!

You'll be primped to the nines by the glam squad and wardrobe and adorned to become a Sexy Snow Bunny or a Santa's Naughty Helper….or both!

Have you been Nice?
The Sexy Snow Bunny set is for the girl who wants to show a little, flirt a lot and leave more to the imagination. The set will consist of light pastel colors, wardrobe can involve lingerie, ruffled panties, sheer babydolls, fuzzy sweaters, glam jewelry and classic pinup hair and makeup….think late 50's Marilyn Monroe and early 60's Brigitte Bardot.

Have you been Naughty?
And for the sexpot, we are offering the Santa's Naughty Helper set. Sexy lingerie, corsets, garters and stockings rule this look and predominant colors will be red pink and black. This look is very much inspired by the campy playfulness of the late Bettie Page. This is for the girl that wants to be sexy and flirty and show a bit more.

Shoot Details:
As always, the TG crew will make sure you feel and look your best and you will be guided throughout the shoot!

Terribly Girly on Galavision's Acceso Maximo.....en espaƱooollll!!!

Big thanks to the sassy "Gabby Villanueva" from "Acceso Maximo" for joining us at the MaiKai to show the viewers of Galavision a peak into what we do! The supa-sexy Stef Smith Hussey and Aniela McGuiness were glammed up for their tropical pin-up shoot in the gardens of Ft. Lauderdale's Mai-Kai. All in all we had a fun and very, very hot day. The models were adorned and beautified by my amazing hair and makeup team (Riviera "the do-gal" and Virginia Le Fay!). Gracias to lil' Heather Inga for helping out throughout the day and suffering the intense summer heat.

Seems like every few months we have to brush on our Spanish for these fun TV spots! Let's keep 'em coming, ladies!

Terribly Girly Girls of July & August as well as news!

Another two months have gone by and I’m absolutely stoked with all the shoots we’ve done and all the cool people we’ve met! We kept busy in the studio with our one-on-one pin-up shoots as well as with more TV features, the Havana/Tropicana themed day shoots and we completed a really cool 2010 calendar for Campeones Marina featuring some gorgeous gals, most of which I’ve had the pleasure of photographing in the past!

This coming September the Terribly Girly crew will be featured on Galavision’s evening show “Acceso Maximo” where we transformed the show’s beautiful hostess, Gabby Villanueva, into a tropical pin-up temptress. The Mai-Kai restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale served as the backdrop for the segment. Thanks to the MaiKai, Gabby, the show’s producer, models Stef and Aniela and the camera crew for a fun day!

Also, I’ll be posting images from the Campeones Marina 2010 calendar very soon as well as a fun behind-the-scenes video!

Another fun project we’ll be completing soon is a video production courtesy of the amazing Jason and Guy of Lantern Light studios. The crew (Virginia Le Fay, Jenn D Basing, Heather & I) as well as model Crystal gave them a glimpse into our world and they couldn’t have been more hilarious and fun to collaborate with!

Check back for more news and please sign up to my newsletter to receive shoot specials and first dibs on our upcoming Halloween themed pin-up shoots which will begin booking in September as well as holiday shoots beginning to book in October.

Tropicana Nights event teaser shots!

Sooo...we were joined by three lovely ladies who just so happen to embody precisely the sass and ass (ahem) needed to pull off the look for our first "Tropicana Nights" shoot event! Many thanks to Yasi, Alicia and Vanessa for playing dressing up with us.

The girls and the crew kept going that day by consuming a lethal dose of colada, pastelitos and croqueticas. Yummm!

I finally completed a ridiculous behind-the-scenes vid with plenty of maraca and ass shakin'!

I'll be doing more Havana themed shoots throughout the next two months and I'm really excited about our "Havana Days" shoots coming this Sat. afternoon. Hopefully the weather works to our advantage and we have bright blue skies overhead and a nice cool breeze! Too much to ask? Well, damn it, how's no rain?

We'll have to wait and see...


(Check out the slide below for teaser shots...I'll be uploading more shortly!)

Many thanks to all the amazing women that have joined the Terribly Girly crew and I during the past couple of months. We've made so many new friends and have had so much fun getting so many adorable gals all dolled up!

Since it's been impossible to update my website every month with new images I'm going to start setting up monthly galleries of new photos. This way I can share as often as I like!

Thanks again to all the ladies that joined us and to all the girls who have referred friends and have helped spread the word! :)

Terribly Girly Crew en Telemundo!

Just a quick update so I can share the segment that Telemundo aired this past Friday evening.
The crew and I thank the lovely reporter, Elizabeth Flores for the great segment.  I'm really happy that the segment delved a bit into the history of pin-up art!  Many thanks to Virginia, Riviera and Heather for joining in as well as the gorgeous models, Nicole Nunez and Ashley Dean.  You ladies rock!  
Watch the segment below and don't make fun of my Spanish!  It's a bit nerve wracking to have the camera staring back at 'ya.   :)

"Havana Days, Tropicana Nights" Themed Shoot Event!

Melding the best of both worlds....the sun, surf, palm trees, gorgeous cars, beautiful women and one of the hottest nightspots of the 1950's, we take a trip down memory lane and hope you'll join us while we recreate nostalgic images of Havana in the 1950's!

I am so happy to offer Havana Days themed photo sessions where ladies will be dressed to the nines in pencil skirts, ruffled tops, high heels, big hoops, lots of jewelry, big sexy hair and fresh flowers to adorn it!  We have a selection of gorgeous cars from this era.  Sunny Miami will serve as the perfect backdrop with bright blue skies and towering palm trees!

Another option for this themed event is Tropicana Nights!  Rumba tops, sexy showgirl costumes, congos, ruffles, feathers, flowers...among the ingredients we'll mix together to recreate the ultimate Cuban showgirl!

Let's go back to a time where Cuba was one of the most visited, most highly esteemed tropical paradises....the "pearl of the carribean".  The Terribly Girly crew and I are super excited to relive the beauty and nostalgia of a place we've only visited in photographs our grandparents have shared with us.  Let's make our own Havana postcards and make it our own history.

This n' that!

Been a while since I blog and needless to say we've been keeping pretty busy in the studio.  We finished the last of our "circus" shoots and I'm already missing the smell of hay in the studio.  :)

We've had so many wonderful ladies come through in the past couple of months, all ages, all races, all sizes.  Makes me really excited that such a diverse group of women reach out to us and allow us to pin them up!  We've celebrated new engagements, new pregnancies, weight loss, and birthdays...including a stunning woman "Miss '57"!

We're in the process of getting revved up for our new themed shoots beginning in July where we relive the beauty of Cuba in the '50's.  "Havana Days, Tropicana Nights" will be my new obsession and I will post more info. very shortly!

In other news, we were visited by Elizabeth Flores from Telemundo and we showed viewers the process behind our pin-up transformations.  Elizabeth was really sweet and Richard, the camera guy was hilarious!  Riviera, Virginia and Heather (Inga) joined me while we pinned up Ashley Dean and Nicole Nunez...two adorable girls.  Ashley was our Sultry Senorita, while Nicole sat amongst sunflowers, astroturf and flamingos for a fun Florida pin-up look!

I'll be posting the segment as soon as it airs along with the images from the shoots.

That's all for now...I'll be posting shoot info. very soon along with the Telemundo segment!

Step Right Up! New Circus Pin-Up Photos (More to come soon!)

Hey all, I wanted to share a few of the images from the ultra fun Circus themed pin-up photo sessions the Terribly Girly crew have had the absolute pleasure to work on this month.  As mentioned, new dates have been added in May so please contact if you'd like to join in on the fun!

I'd like to send a big ol'  thanks to the gorgeous ladies that have joined us thus far!  The Terribly Girly crew and I are looking forward to all the upcoming Circus shoots in May!  I couldn't ask for a better team of hair, makeup and wardrobe geniuses!  Virginia, Riviera, Marilyn, Jess and Aurora are THE glam squad!  And many thanks to the talented lil' Inga for the rockin' help and creativity!

Here's a preview....enjoy!

Terribly Girly Photo Studio...the ONLY pin-up studio in South Florida!!

What do you get when you combine an inexhaustible drive, supportive friends and sleepless nights?  My photo studio!

Needless to say, I'm happy as hell to have a comfortable, spacious and damn cute studio that myself and the TG crew can work out of.  

Walls were destroyed, tiles were replaced, walls were then painted many times over (damn red paint wouldn't cooperate) and that was only the beginning. 

Thanks to Jean (who became very sick after sweeping mounds of dirt and dust,  then added insult to injury by enduring the toxic stink of paint night after night.  What the hell would I do without, really.   ;)

Another set of helping hands was provided by Marilyn and her lovingly named "house bitch", H.B. (Chris).  I mean, talk about bringing the muscle, handy work and wait, bob vila who???

Finally, a place is not complete without the right ambiance. Thanks to Heather, my lil' helping hands, we managed to get the place to scream "girl!".  I think it's the perfect balance of cool and fluff!  

Anyway, the doors were open for business shortly after the move.  Weeks have turned into months and things are FINALLY where they ought to be.  

Below are some photos of my home away from home...
