Berylanne Lynch - Pin Up Vintage Inspired Photoshoot (How to Prepare for a Pin Up Shoot)


Do you get excited to do a new photo shoot but feel confused and anxious? Did you know that thoroughly planning your photo shoot will lead to a successful photo shoot? Many people do not realize the importance of thoroughly planning a photo shoot, especially if it’s “on location”. Winging (or improvising) the poses and backgrounds can work, but it may waste time and you may not get the results intended.


In this post, I discuss helpful tips to prepare for your next photo shoot as well as explain one of my favorite photo shoots where I was happy to plan out. Below is also a video I posted via my YouTube channel that explains in more depth about how to properly plan for a shoot. The tips can also work for regular (non pin up) shoots as well!


Now…more about the shoot…



Berylanne Lynch - Pin Up Model - Polka Dots Parade pin up shoot


I like to call this photo shoot “The Polka Dot Parade”. I just love polka dots! They add a simple feminine touch to any vintage garment. I like how polka dots changed over the vintage decades. I did this shoot back in 2015 in downtown Chicago. A photographer friend of mine helped with the shooting. This is very much a one of a kind dress from Forever 21. I was surprised it was made by F21. I sold it off on my eBay store a while ago. I figured I would pass it on to another pin up girl. I loved how it has a sweetie neck with a halter. The red belt adds a perfect classic touch among the black/white polka dots. Because of my petite frame it’s easy to pull off styles with short dresses. I didn’t have to worry about it riding up too short as it falls perfectly above the knees. I admit, the belt was a little too tight! But overall, I was very pleased with this shoot. I’m glad I had the opportunity of planning it out.


The worse feeling you could have is regretting doing something wrong in your photo shoot. As a pin up model you work hard to keep vintage glamour alive! This post will definitely help you with your next shoot.

My 1950's Vintage Hairstyle Recreation (My Favorite!)


1950s Vintage Basic Everyday Hairstyle by Berylanne Lynch

As many people may or may not know, my favorite time period is the 1940’s and the 1950’s. I just love, love, love the classic, feminine fashion and hairstyles that the 40’s and 50’s boast. Of course other vintage time periods are classic, but being raised in an old-fashioned home that was primarily 50’s style contributed to this admiration!


I always found myself mimicking 50’s hairstyles in high school unknowingly. My hair became short Basic Everyday 50's Vintage Inspired Hairstyle by Berylannethroughout junior high and high school due to damage, unfortunately. (My hair

damages very easily). Since it was shorter it was easier to curl. I didn’t like that it was short; but yet I loved styling it girly-style. It was a love-hate situation. Over the years, this has become one of my favorite go-to vintage hairstyles. I love to dress it up with different style side combs.


In the video below, I demonstrate how to do a basic 1950’s hairstyle that can be easily worn every day. I first did this demonstration in my early days of YouTube, and I decided to revamp (remake/update) the video to make it more current. Either way, I hope it helps! Thanks for watching!

-----My Pin Up Birthday Shoot at Vavoom Pinups in Chicago


---- Vavoom Pinups Chicago Birthday Shoot by Berylanne Lynch

For my 23rd birthday, I treated myself to a wonderful opportunity of doing a pin up shoot at Vavoom Pinups Studio in Chicago. I remember this day so clearly!


It was February 2nd 2013. Of course it was snowy and cold. I had to make my way to Chicago regardless of the bitter weather, which was about an hour and a half trip. When I got there, I was greeted by lovely ladies that was happy to help me get set and pinned up!


The atmosphere was very relaxing and inviting. It of course had a vintage but yet modern feel. This was my first professional pin up photo shoot and I didn’t quite plan out which specific style I was going for. I learned that the ladies will help dress and make you up so I decided to go with the flow with what dresses and props were available. While getting ready, there was something I deeply realized.

How Did I End Up Becoming a Pin Up Girl?

I'm starting to get used to people asking me what I do for work. I guess it's the way I come off - or appear in person. With having a vintage inspired and pin up flair I can see how people are curious! I usually start talking about my other work that I do, and I squeezein the topic about my love for vintage and pin up. I get asked how did I get into vintage since I'm "young" (and look surprisingly young) and I simply respond with "it was just my upbringing".

The video below is my full explanation on why I became a pin up model…
