Men are notoriously difficult to shop for, so when we came across personalised pin-up calendars for the other (male) half, we got quite excited. The key is to emulate the classic pin-up girls, like Rita Hayworth and Jane Russell, rather than getting overly sexy and revealing. This creates a gift that is tasteful, steamy and ultra seductive. It is also easier to achieve this look for the everyday girl than expecting us to become sex kittens in front of the camera.
To prepare for your pin-up shoot, browse posters and calendars from the past few decades. Practice the poses you see in these and become comfortable with them, so that you are well prepared when in front of the camera. All too often, we opt for a generic, stiff pose as soon as the lens comes off the camera, making us appear nervous and awkward. Be playful and cute too, since this style was popular in the classic pin-up calendar of yesteryear.
Purchase the right outfit(s) for the shoot too. Choosing something that is flattering should be your priority. If you do not feel sexy, you will not look it.
As you look at the girls that made these pin-up calendars popular, you will no doubt notice that none of them were stick figures – so relax and capture your gorgeous body just as he loves it. This is a great gift for weddings, engagements, birthdays and anniversaries.
