As fall approaches, we’re digging through our files to find all of our favorite images from last fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and our favorite moments in between! This is our lead photographer’s favorite time of year. The fall colors, temperate weather, and warmer wardrobe give all of our ladies such a warm glow! From feasting on comfort food, to sneaking around a graveyard, we’ve enjoyed our fair share of autumn shenanigans! Here are some of the highlights!
Hey, good lookin’, whatchya got cookin’??
While we love representing for women who’ve been victimized in domestic abuse situations, we also like to take some time to appreciate the soldiers who fight to keep America safe in the face of danger. Some of our very own members are active members of the armed forces and we could not be more proud to call them our own! We are happy to raise money for local charities who serve the veterans and soldiers of our great nation!
Here’s some of what we’ve produced in the last two years!
Lady Bordeaux and our cell phone shoot!
This was a relatively slow summer for the Summit City Pinups, but we still managed to pull off some beautiful photo shoots and have a lot of fun! We hosted our first ever Pledge Party in June. We welcomed several new ladies to the sisterhood. Then, we hit the beach in July! We love doing our Beach Baby shoot every year! It always turns out to be such fun! Enjoy some of our favorite shots from our 2017 and 2018 Beach Baby photo events…

This summer, the Summit City Pinups came together for a concept shoot that left us all in complete awe! Each pinup chose a Goddess of lore to portray, and then created their “look” and costume based on the story of that Goddess…
The object was to celebrate the Goddess in each of us. Every woman could identify with some aspect of the Goddess she chose. What came about was nothing short of stunning! These women are an absolute delight and being surrounded by their charming personalities, and creative spirits is awe inspiring! Their mission is to empower women to be true to their inner Goddess and embrace their femininity.
Over the coming week, we’ll be sharing photos from this shoot, and we hope you’ll be as inspired as we were!
Skye Milan portrayed Artemis, and boy did she nail it! Her look was self made and we think she did a great job! She looks ready for the hunt!
Roxxy Ringlets did a MASTERFUL job on her portrayal of Pan…and we gotta say…she’s just adorable! And, yes…those are hooves!
Scarlet Harkness chose to portray Persephone. Her costume was self made and her flowers even glow! Absolutely gorgeous!
DeDe Dandurand portrayed Calypso…and the plot thickens here as you’ll see, there comes a point when a man must choose…
Vixen VanHelsing is her name…and sexy is her game!! Here she’s portraying Hecate. She plays the role so well! We adore her dark side!
Our own Bette Lovegood chose to personify Blodeuwedd…who is turned into an owl after killing her lover…

And here is Miss Billie James….just about as creepy as you will ever see her!! She’s seen here portraying Mania….the Goddess of madness and insanity… Um…yah, she nailed it!

Throughout the month of October we are celebrating the empowered woman! As much as we want to raise awareness for the prevention of domestic abuse, we also want to celebrate empowered women, who are proving women can be strong, fierce, and powerful! Through this project, we wanted to show that we all have a little Wonder Woman in us! So each model was adorned with a little piece of her Wonder Woman gear, and represents a different profession or walk of life…
Jamie joined us after having recently finished her Ph.D. We were so impressed by her accomplishment!! It was a true pleasure getting to talk to Jamie about her life and education. She was nervous at first, but she warmed right up and the end product is absolutely gorgeous!! Congratulations Jamie on your accomplishments and we wish you the best of luck in all your endeavors!
One of our very own Pinup Girls, Lady Bordeaux did an amazing job representing a nurse straight out of the 1940’s. Lady Bordeaux is also an animal rights activist in our community. She cares for a local community of cats, feeding and observing their needs each week. We’re so proud of the work she does! Here you see her wielding the lasso of truth. The truth is, we all have some Wonder Woman in us!
Meg is a Combat Medic in the Army National Guard…a TRUE super hero!!! Meg, we salute your bravery and service to our community, state, and country. Meg is an absolute bombshell, with a huge heart! We are so honored that you joined us for this event! As you can see, she’s a real heart breaker!
Roxanna was an ABSOLUTE joy to work with!!! She is used to being behind the camera, so this was a new experience for her! As you can see, she was channeling some Lucille Ball!! Here she portrays “Rosie the Riveter”, who represented the women who went to work in the factories when so many husbands, sons, brothers, and fathers went off to fight in the war! You did a wonderful job Roxanna! We’re so thankful that you joined us for this event!
Here’s our own Pinup Girl Roxxy Ringlets, in her favorite role…SUPER Mom!! Mom’s are everything! From nurse, chauffeur, therapist, plumber, monster chaser, pillow and blanket, chef and waitress…there’s nothing mom cannot do!! Every mom truly has some Wonder Woman in her!
Roxxy had such a fun time posing with her little prince for this photo session! We’re super excited for Roxxy’s upcoming wedding! Congratulations Roxxy!

The concept behind this series is that each Pinup Girl will find pinup art that they love and emulate it in photograph form. So our Luna Lucite was first up. She wanted to do a photo session with her poochy Griff. She sent me several art files that she wanted to emulate and we met at the old TekVenture building on Broadway St., next to the GE buildings, to shoot this AMAZING and vibrant set. Griff was absolutely, positively photo perfect! (So was Luna!!) This whole session took less than thirty minutes! And we had so much fun! Check out Luna’s set and then take a peek at what her inspirations were! You’ll find she nailed it!
And here is the inspiration behind Luna’s gorgeous Life Emulating Art session:
As you can see, Luna researched what she wanted her photos to look like, even found some inspiration in actual vintage photos, and put together her entire set. From the wardrobe, hair and makeup, to the poochy…she has it all!!! (This is why she’s our Styling Director!)
