My name is Action Girl, and I'm a hot rod gal, scooterist, photographer, artist, and quite possibly one of the most fun people you'll ever meet.
For as long as I can remember I've been fascinated with all things vintage, especially pinups dating from the war years through the early sixties. I've made it my personal mission to make the pin-up look accessible to the modern girl wanting to recapture that demure, sweet and sexy elegance made popular in the past.
I strive to be THE BEST as what I do and so it's no accident that Atomic Cheesecake is one of the finest pin-up studios in Baltimore.
Here's what you can expect when you come here for a shoot:
- the largest selection of props, wardrobe, furniture, and backdrops in town.
- Expert posing assistance, coaching and direction that can help even the most inexperienced girl look like a pro!
- Stunning make-up, fantastic vintage hairstyling and period-perfect wardrobe styling.
- An experience like no other, working with someone who LOVES her clients, and works harder that anyone to make everyone look PERFECT.
- State of the art equipment, expert retouching, and affordable packages that are ALL INCLUSIVE.
- A fun studio atmosphere- I dare you to come here and NOT have a great time!
I shoot ALL KINDS of girls in many shapes and sizes, so don't be afraid of getting in front of my camera if you're a little curvy... in fact, for the eras i'm shooting, "skinny" wasn't really in fashion. My extensive wardrobe accommodates one of the largest size ranges in the business, from a size zero up to a dressmaker's size 18/20.
I do not shoot ANYONE under the age of 18, and I do check ID when I'm not sure.
So, you think you're ready to book??? Everything you need to know about shooting with me can be found on my Studio's website. http://www.atomiccheesecakestudios.com
Please read it FIRST and then ask questions. I get bombarded with messages asking questions that are very clearly answered there, and I've taken a lot of time to build a site that explains everything in detail.
I do not offer TFCD, buy I do offer reasonable prices for great photos.
I've built my portfolio by working with literally hundreds of models since I started shooting as a hobby a few years ago. I do all of the hair and make-up for my shoots, as well as styling, set building, taking the photos and post-production editing.
Below is a list of some girls here on Model Mayhem if you'd like to get their opinions on working with me.
