About The experience

When it comes to iconic looks the 1950s is hard to beat. Our Peggy Sue makeover shoot lets you step straight back into 1957 when Buddy Holly’s hits were rocking on radios right across the USA.

Starting with some classic 50s hair and makeup pampering, you can take your pick from a range of retro vintage Americano outfits. You’ll find headscarves and polka dots galore to style with your red lipstick, as well as authentic era props – such as telephones, irons, hairdryers and drinks coolers – for a stunning and sexy portrait series that celebrates the diner doll in you.

Then once you’ve finished channelling your inner-Marilyn Monroe you can take your pick from your favourites. No matter what your figure or normal day-to-day look, you’re a bombshell in the making with Peggy Sue 1950s Pin Ups.

On The DAY


When you arrive we’ll start with a short consultation to discuss your requirements and what you want to get out of the session. This is a chance for you both to get to know each other and discuss what’s included in the booking, the different options on offer in the studio (like dresses, props and backgrounds), and what you want to come away with. Don’t forget to let your studio know your shoe and dress sizes, so they can make sure they have exactly what they need to create the right look

Before the shoot starts, a professional hair and make-up stylist will be on hand to help you achieve a perfect 50s look. This usually lasts up to an hour and there will be plenty of hot and cold non-alcoholic beverages on hand to keep you refreshed. Then it’s off to the changing room to step into your choice of retro costumes and accessories. You are welcome to bring your own outfits and accessories
When you get into the studio your photographer will take you through a fun, fast-paced shoot with a glitz and glamour vibe, with classic 50s songs playing in the background to get you in the mood
All our photographers are highly experienced at recreating the kind of sexy and flamboyant poses that typify photography from the era. The shoot will last up to an hour, so you’ll have plenty of time to try out the different 50s retro props on offer
