Essie Charm


Reflecting back, it was a fun year that included shoots with some of my favorite fellow photographers, such as Vetala Hawkins, Jiji Lee, and Ralph Gayle of SevenSeven Photography. Although I often do my own self portrait pinups, it's nice to only have to be on one side of the lens every now and again. Plus, there are a few photographers that I just love working with, because our shoots are always a delightful creative collaboration! It's quite the treat to have a trusted and talented photographer on my side whenever I have a special idea in mind, allowing me to fully focus on all the little details of props, wardrobe and other stylings. February gave me another opportunity to take the stage in a torch singing performance for The Pinup Angels fundraising show, Pinups and Pasties - one of two annual shows in which the profits go toward our care package fund for the deployed military men and women. It's such a privilege to give of my time and talent for a cause that carries on the very original purpose of pinup! Summer is always fun, but even more so for a pinup since it's car show season! One show I always look forward to is Rebel Riot in Tacoma, put on by fellow Pinup Angel, Lulu Bell! Each year she invites the Pinup Angels to host the pinup contest. I just love seeing all the gals in their vintage and vintage-inspired swim suits, in addtion this year I had the pleasure of awarded the winning sashes again! These are just a few highlights from 2012, here's to even more cheesecake in 2013!
