Meet Ava Dae Photography

Posted by John on November 18, 2014

When I started this site 6 years ago I met Miss Frenchy St. Claire. She was one of the very first pinups featured here. She used to run a pinup of the month contest that I followed very closely and she sent in a spot to a radio show that I used to be a part of
Fast-forward 6 years and a lot of pinups and now Frenchy is more on the other side of camera and Ava Dae Photography is one of my favorite photography studios.
I asked Melissa, aka Frenchy, to send me some of her favorite shots and I would pick some for a feature. as you can see I had issues limiting my selections
Ave Dae is based out of Newton, Pennsylvania and you can reach them at (215) 431-9209 or . I can think of a number of PA based models that should look them up.
I have to wonder. does starting as a model give you a different perspective as a photographer?

Congrats to Pearl Blanched–October 2014 Pinup-Doll of the Month

Posted by John on October 28, 2014

I have to admit, I don't know a lot about this month's Pinup-Doll of the Month. She's new to me and now you get to know her too.
Her name is Pearl Blanched and she is from Brunswick, Germany
She says on Pin Up Garage
"Hello Darling! I'm Pearl Blanched from good old Germany. My five favourite things are German beer, candy floss, Oktoberfest, sunny days and schnitzel with fries and ketchup. I live in a small village in the country. At the weekend I like to bake cupcakes or a black forest cake. I hope you like my work. With love Pearl"
The only site I can find for her is on Facebook.


Well thank you once again for running your contest and giving me the chance to showcase yet another pretty girl.

Well I just renewed My Favorite Pinups for another year. That means that we are 6 years old today
How better to celebrate than a few pics from my friend Nola Chick.
Nola sent me a few beautiful pics in the mail a couple weeks ago and I was saving them for today. (that's if you want to drop me a note too)
The lovely Miss Nola Chick is 5'7" 36C-26-37 and hails from New Orleans.
A city on my wish list of places that I want to visit, just like Nola Chick is on my list of people I want to meet.
So why My Favorite Pinups do you ask?
well that's pretty easy. I love pinups girls and wants a place to show off the girls I come across and the pics that I love.
Plus it gives me an excuse to looks at pretty girls, talk to them, get signed prints from time to time and occasionally make new friends
If you could wouldn't you?

Please meet Viktoria Saletros

Posted by John on October 09, 2014

I dunno what I was looking for when this girl from Hungary showed up on my screen but I'm glad the did
Looks like Viktoria Saletros started her page just a couple months ago. Makes me wonder where she's been hiding
Sorry boys and girls, but I don't have access to her stats and all her Facebook says is:
"Vintage lover from Hungary. In love with classic culture and modeling (from 20's to early 60's) but also alternative, modern pin up/rockabilly style." and she is "crazy for criminal psychology"
For the time being the only place I know to see more is:
On Facebook
You can be sure that I'll be stalking her page to see what develops
you may have noticed that two of the pics above are very similar.
do you know why I picked them?
well because they have an upright bass of course

This 5'6" 38C-29-39 blonde bombshell hails from Kansas City and she believes every day is an adventure and wants to share those adventures with you... as well as diy projects, vintage styling tips and a few of her favorite things!
From her Facebook:
"I Love the pin-up world because it celebrates all shapes and sizes of women. There were many years of my life that I did not believe that I was beautiful. Pin-up helped me find my confidence!
