A spooktacular Halloween pinup shoot

Those who know me, know one thing for certain – I’m utterly mad for Halloween! Creepies, ghoulies, hobgoblins and bats – these are a few of my favourite things. Everyday is Halloween in my home, from my zombie and monster decor – and my absolute speciality is cooking creepy-looking food! (Brain jello anyone?)

So, when I got asked to partake in a South African pinup calendar, I jumped at the chance to be Miss October because it meant one thing – Halloween pinup shoot!

After my incredible experience doing my boudoir photo shoot with Miss Hepburn Photography and Sam Ellenberger MUA, I was super keen to collaborate with them again – and this seemed like the perfect project to reunite the dream team!

We shot this a few months ago and have been sitting on it excitedly ever since. With this week being Halloween, we just can’t resist sharing some of our favourite images with you.

We wanted to make an homage to the vintage Halloween pinups of old, with their fun shadows and kitschy studio shoots. Images like these were some of our inspiration:

Personally, I think we nailed it. (So much for modesty, eh?).

Miss Hepburn is an artiste – I mean, she got that lighting perfect. And Sam got me absolutely looking the part. I couldn’t be more pleased.

Without further ado: the pics!

Always fantasized about a totally obscure photoshoot? Give Miss Hepburn a call – she’ll make your dreams come true 🙂
