Vavoom Pinups (2239 N. Kimball Ave, B-R), Located in the Logan Square Neighborhood, this unique photography experience can be fun and exciting for the individual as well as shared with your favorite gal-pals, launched in 2009. Women can choose to express themselves in a cheeky vintage look with Vavoom Pinups or/and in a sultry sexy look with Vavoom Boudoir. Clients can customize an unforgettable party to create the experience of a lifetime. Extras include having a private burlesque lesson, a Vavoom wardrobe stylist who helps to style your shoot, to having even a 'cabana boy' who help you find your shoes if you lose them!
Vavoom Pinups provides a unique and timeless experience, which enables women of all ages, shapes and sizes to embrace and celebrate their one-of-a-kind beauty and style. A photo shoot by women and for women that truly allows every lady to feel as beautiful as they are; the emphasis is on personal empowerment; whether it is done for themselves or someone special. Shoots range from $250-up and is presented like a ‘sushi menu', with optional studio 'extras' including more outfit changes with additional photoshoots, additional makeup and hair looks, etc.
Photographer and owner Heather Stumpf, has studied the classic pin-up poses of Gil Elvgren and Alberto Vargas and works with ladies to accentuate the parts of their bodies ladies like and downplay the parts that maybe they’re not so fond of with her technical use of studio lighting, usage of props, while using the most flattering camera angles; and she does it with a deft and personal touch that is at the same time nothing less than professional.
“The name “Vavoom” was chosen for a variety of different reasons. It brings to mind a combination of the great timeless women of the past and the beautiful modern woman of today. It makes us think of something sexy, dark, and mysterious and something silly or cheeky like the old cartoons of the ‘ogling men’ when they see a beautiful girl, their eyes bug out a million times, and their jaw drops to the floor and their tongue turns into a long red carpet. Also it’s just a fun word to say!” said Heather.
The shoots are fun and sexy, yet always tasteful and demure. Ladies are pampered by a team of expert Vavoom stylists; they can bring their own clothing options or find things in the Vavoom trunk and while many women want to create a spectacular gift for that someone special in their life, many are simply looking to celebrate and document.
''Women come in to our private studio for a variety of reasons; some to create that most personal gift for the someone special in their life, others come to celebrate and document the certain age they’re at, still others want embrace their vitality and womanhood after surviving a trauma like disease or divorce,'' remarks Heather.
Vavoom Pinups clients have included women whose loved one has been deployed overseas, a glowing 8 months pregant mother, women who are in remission from breast cancer, and a 24 year old who under went a triple bi-pass surgery who bares her chest scar like a warrior. Clients also include women who want to bond with lifelong friends, sisters, or co-workers for a birthday; many come for unforgettable bachelorette parties of 8-12 or intimate bridal parties of 4-6, and there are some who come just for the way they feel when they walk out of the studio after having their hair and make-up professionally done, putting on a classic or sultry outfit and seeing photos of themselves as beautiful and sexy as they ever have.
For many women, having a Vavoom Pinups experience is the fulfillment of a lifetime dream; a chance to have their own professional photo shoot just like the glamorous women they’ve seen in fashion magazines and ads since they were little girls. Vavoom Pinups ‘evens out the playing field’ in that respect. With the right hairstyling, makeup, and pose coaching Vavoom Pinups shows that anyone can do this.
For ladies creating a gift for someone special, they love to incorporate items belonging to their beloved into the shoot or figuring out how to visually illustrate a nickname or inside joke into a photographic reality.
In addition, gals can order their pictures professionally printed and ready for framing, they can select images from their shoot to be printed in a high-quality, keepsake, hardcover leather album or even made into beautiful 'Vargas style' calendars or playing cards. All prints and products include the 'star-treatment' of retouching making each and every woman look like a million bucks.
