Time to meet the “STAR of this SHOW” – the Stunning Winnipeg Girl-Next-Door – namely the Vintage Gorgeous Shanna!

Now Shanna’s story starts out like most other Women here in Manitoba…

She’s a regular gal, who gets up every morning and works hard at her job. She also spends much of her free time with her young daughter.

Shanna copes with a busy life schedule – puts up with Winnipeg Rush Hour – the Long Manitoba Winters – and tries to find some “ME TIME”.

Let’s read further to see how this Pegcity Pinup Becomes Published Model.

Lo and behold, Shanna decided that NOW was going to be “ME TIME”. Not tomorrow, or next week – but NOW.

Shanna decided that the PERFECT Gift for Herself was going to be a VINTAGE PINUP PHOTO SHOOT.

She of course contacted my studio – as I am ONLY – 1 of 3 – ACCREDITED PINUP PHOTOGRAPHERS in all of Canada (only one in Manitoba).

I am ACCREDITED with the Professional Photographers Of Canada (PPOC) – the oldest and most prestigious Professional Organization for Photographers.

Shanna contacted me and we “hit it off” right away. I could tell this “Doll” was Energetic and full of Positive Vibes.

She explained that in 2019 she wanted to “Step Out of her Comfort Zone” – and do Something Exciting and Just For Her.

Shanna mentioned how she had a love for Retro Styling and especially Vintage Cars.

This all came about from her childhood, where her Father would take her to see a variety of Classic Car Shows.

Shanna currently is the proud owner of a 1965 Impala SS that needs some restoration.

She plans to do the restoration work hopefully this summer with her Dad, as both of them love “working on” vehicles.

One of the first topics in planning Shanna’s Pinup Shoot, was to select a THEME that she loved.

In this Pegcity Pinup Becomes Published Model adventure… Shanna naturally wanted to be a Sexy Pinup Mechanic.

She also chose to have a Second Theme, which was to shoot some basic Fun Portrait Poses with her Vintage Hair and cute attractive clothing.

I sent Shanna to one or our EXPERT VINTAGE HAIRSTYLISTSJessica LeBrun – who created her Pinup Perfect hair.

In our conversations, I heard one of the MOST COMMON concerns that I hear from my Pinup and Boudoir Clients…

She related that she was not experienced in posing or modelling, and was likely to feel nervous for her session.

As you can see in this Pegcity Pinup becomes Published Model posting – Shanna looks anything BUT nervous or inexperienced.

She appears to be the complete opposite – a Professional Pinup Model that’s having the “Time of Her Life”.

In the above image, we added some Faux Grease to her left cheek to add to the mechanic look.

I provide ALL of MY CLIENTS – Relaxed Professional Coaching and Guidance for Posing and general Presence in front of the camera.

You can see the Profound Effect it had on this Delicious Doll!

She is CONFIDENT and ENJOYING HERSELF – all while being in front of a camera.

These are Important Transformations for All My Clients in this Pegcity Pinup Becomes Published model posting.

HOLY SMOKES! Now How About This Stunning Image – for a Winnipeg Girl-Next-Door!

The session was specifically styled so that her images could be submitted to Delicious Dolls Magazine – which is the Largest Dedicated Pinup Publication out there.
