#BeachBumPinUps will be happening on Wednesday 31st August 2016.

[waiting name=”#BeachBumPinUps”]


Having been hugely inspired by our Cali and Aussie Pin Up sisters, I felt it was time to show off our beautiful coastline along with our bods.  Although we are not famous for our impressive summers, I think UK pinups should celebrate our bodies, and delicious beaches…. come rain or shine.


Whenever I work on-location, I love to befriend new businesses.  There is something beautiful to me about the vintage sense of community.  I love to try and find clever ways to wrap this into a Pin Up shoot.  Not only does it benefit local businesses, it feels great to do.

I couldn’t help but befriend Stephen and the team over at Tynemouth Surf Co. whilst I was out scouting the location for this shoot. They will be supplying us with some vintage boards for Shoot Day.

The doll’s over at Lady V London, loved the showreel from our test shoot.  So much so they have said that they are now officially on board to welcome all confirmed pinups to this event with their very own exclusive discount code.  This way you can spring for that ‘new dress feeling’.  Every time you get a compliment on the dress you will be able to say “Oh its from my recent pinup shoot dahling”.

Confirmed Host: Kathryn Kaupa

This time, I wanted the whole theme to be wrapped up in the warm embrace of body positivity.  Look no further than Kathryn Kaupa of Miss Kathryn’s Misstakes.  Kathryn is featured here in the test shots we did, showing off our beautiful coastal location and beauty beach bums theme.  She will also be there on the shoot day to help me run things smoothly and keep you filled with buckets of confidence.
