Pin Up Boudoir Cheescake Calendar Girl portraits

Category: Art / Creative
Description
Pin Up Portraits . . . . .
The word "pin up" . . . came from calendars, which people would pin up to see the pictures. The term pin up girl in the 1940s became a euphemism for "cheesecake", which in today's terms would be known as sex symbol.

Vintage Pin up Girls . . . .were popularized in the 1910-1940. During World War II pin-up pictures of scantily clad movie stars were extremely popular among US servicemen. Hollywood Style pin up Cheese cake / Calendar girl emerged in the 40's and 50's during the war to boost moral of the troops!

Boudoir photography . . . . existed well before the well-known '40s and '50s pin-up craze. Boudoir began as a term to describe “a woman's private bedroom,” hence its mysterious and intimate feel today. There are currently thousands of photographers waiting for clients to seek their services. Boudoir has become more prominent now than ever. In modern times, you may also hear it called, “intimate photography.”

Boudoir portraits . . . became popular in the 90's .Bringing out the alluring sensuous side that all women have in a tastefully, non reveling portrait in more intimate bedroom clothing or or more sensual clothing! Boudoir is the “French” for bedroom. Teasing, alluring and softly suggestive . . . . sometimes more revealing, and playful!
