Vintage-pinup photos seem classier than their modern counterparts, mostly pictures of ladies texting on smart phones or posing on the hood of drag-racing segways. Postpone time traveling with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a vintage-pinup mini photo-shoot package including one shoot theme, a solid-color backdrop, transformation and wardrobe, blemish touch-ups, a 12"x18" pinup poster, and a disc of three high-resolution images at Flash in the Past (a $250 value).

Ramsey Borrego and her all-female team of makeup artists and stylists create vintage-style portraits for modern ladies in their fully stocked studio. Create a to-scale sand sculpture of the Kennedy estate during a beach shoot, or choose a lounge or bedroom photo theme plucked from the pages of 1940s, '50s, and '60s pinup images. Along with authentic wigs, Flash in the Past supplies vintage wardrobe selections to suit a wide array of sizes and styles and a professional makeup artist well versed in precise applications of Bette Davis eyes. The photographer and modeling coach help Vargas girls in training to strike convincingly retro poses in front of a solid backdrop.

After the session, photo pros will retouch any makeup smears or seemingly prophesying tattoos of the 2009 NFC championship winners. Ladies can pick out their favorite pose for immortalization on a 12"x18" pinup poster, as well as three more tastefully flirtatious images on a high-resolution photo disk. Though not included with this Groupon, clients can purchase additional old-timey keepsakes with portraits attached, such as playing cards, coasters, and mouse pads.

Prospective models must be 18 years of age or older.

Flash in the Past Studio

Any camera can capture a moment in time, but those at Flash in the Past Studio aim for moments long since gone. Their recreations of vintage pinup photos make a great romantic gift with a bit of old-fashioned sass. They're armed with a full arsenal of makeup artists, hair stylists, and fashion experts to kit their clients out in 1950s lingerie, bathing suits, and themed costumes. Outside of teasing portraits, the studio also offers a full vintage clothing shop and, of course, Retro Beauty Classes.

it was a really good class. they give you a hand out with the instructions too and a pencil to take notes. I got to ask lots of questions and they were really nice, professional, and knowledgeable. I want to get pictures taken there soon too, maybe as an anniversary gift!
