What a great group of girls!! I have nothing but good things to say about them. For my birthday, I was supposed to go to Las Vegas but my plans changed. For years I've been wanting to do this retro photo shoot but never had the time or money to do so. Finally, I had saved enough and put down the deposit for my shoot. Talked to Brooke on the phone for an hour about my vision and what I wanted to do. After our phone chat, I received an email that consist of a survey. The questions were a lot of fun to answer.                                               Then a week or so later, Carey got back in touch with me and we brainstormed ideas of what would be possible for my shoot. Two weeks or so of emailing and shooting off ideas, we finally came down to six amazing ideas for my special day. I felt like a kid the night before my first day of school. I was super excited about having my picture taken and having them done retro style which is the best way to go.                                                                                   Arriving, on my shoot day I grabbed a quick breakfast at the nearest cafe then at 9:55am I made my way to the studio. As I got to the door, they had my name with a little heart which made me so happy. So, I snapped a quick picture and knocked. Soon as I knocked a girl named Elena answered and I was introduced to Natalie then Carey. I was so in awe of how cute the studio was. They had yummy snacks out for me as well as retro music. Definitely made my day a thousand percent. Any girl who loves the 40's and 50's will absolutely go crazy for how fun this place is.After getting to know each other they had set a side several outfits for me to try on. Like trying on clothes everywhere is some work and some do not. But the ones that did fit like a glove. My first outfit was an actual fifties bathing suit which I was over the moon about. The fourth outfit, I felt like a movie star and a bit like Jessica Rabbit combined. Growing up, I always adored Jessica Rabbit, so being her twin was so fun. All I needed was Frank Sinatra or Elvis beside me singing a duet. The last outfit was a sexy lingerie outfit which I wasn't sure about it but when I had the makeup on and everything complete it was perfect. Normally. I'm not big on taking sexy pictures but I was actually comfortable and I felt like Bettie Page.   The reason why I'm mentioning these three outfits is because I was having self doubt but when we started shooting til I got the proofs I fell in love with those outfits I wasn't sure about. A reason why I love this place is because these girls are so awesome and they make you feel like a queen. Which is so awesome and I haven't felt that good about myself in a quite a long time so I'm greatful they let me out of my shell. I'm hoping one day to use their services again for another event. Thank you all so much for making this a great birthday gift!! You all are amazing women that really inspire others to be themselves and let their retro flag fly. I can't wait to buy keepsakes for friends and family. Thank you Shameless Family!!

What a phenomenal experience this is.First off, Shameless is a bi-coastal all-female business that champions body positivity for all types of bodies. Think about it; it's radical. Similarly, staking claim to femininity and the pin-up aesthetic not as frivolous, but a tool for expression and self-empowerment gives me the tingles. But I digress.Obviously a shoot like this is an investment for most. It took me many moons to decide to go for it, and I'm so glad I did. After signing up, I was promptly contacted by the studio manager Brooke, who carefully answered my questions and sorted out logistics. She also sent me an thoughtful list of things to start thinking about for the shoot, including questions about what parts of the body I am self-conscious about and which I consider as strong points. More importantly, there's a question about whether you want to downplay or highlight (in a beautiful way) those areas you are self-conscious about. Amazing. Day of the shoot, I was greeted by the exceptional Sophie and Natalie at the outer Richmond studio. They had already pulled lingerie, shoes, and dresses in my size that might resonate with some of the looks we had communicated about. Sophie patiently talked me through practically each item, helping me choose three outfits that I was excited about showcasing (outfit is a bit generous in the case of lingerie, but you get my point) for three looks. The dynamic pair got to work on my hair and makeup, comfortably chatting till I was decked out in victory curls and flawless cat-eye, etc.The shoot itself was such an interesting experience. I really enjoyed working with Sophie's clear, confident, and enthusiastic direction. She sketched out a series of poses for each look, and was great at communicating what the poses are, how to do them, and different variations of body position, limbs, head, and gaze. She's also very attentive to whether a pose is too uncomfortable or needs modification. Natalie was great throughout the shoot as well, smoothing of garments gone astray, arranging props, touching up makeup, and helping adjust lighting.The posing process was more athletic than I'd realized, since what looks casual on camera is not necessarily so. All in all, the whole process was a blast. I would definitely do it again. Thank you, Shameless!

BEST DAY EVER. I am still on a high from my photo shoot with Carey and Elena. I was so nervous to go have my photo taken as a pin up girl for my grooms gift. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was hopeful as their website showed women of all shapes, sizes and ages and you could just see in their eyes they felt beautiful. Much to my expectations it was all true. I arrived and they had a adorable welcome sign for me, healthy snacks and some outfit choices for me to choose from. Talk about pampered! Carey and Elena did SUCH an amazing job with my hair and make up, and once the camera started shooting all my nerves disappeared. They really help make it one of THE most fun experiences I have ever had.  I highly recommend every woman should do this once in her life. I left and I still am on such a high from the joy this brought me. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would - off the charts. Thanks ladies for making me feel like a million bucks!

Best photo shoot my fiance and I have ever done. My fiance Gio and I are obsessed with the old Hollywood glam style. So Shameless photography was a perfect fit for us. We did our shoot from San Francisco and worked with Sophie. I got my hair and make up done and the look the girls created for me was on point!! Sophie made Gio and I really comfortable from the start. We were greeted with a sign with both of our names which by the way was so adorable! Then got inside and Sophies crew was so sweet. They made us so comfortable and Gio is not photo gentic at all. They also put out snacks for us which was really thoughtful. I am in awe our photos. When I received our photo gallery back I almost had a heart attack. They were more then perfect. Everything from my hair, make up, dress, shoes, to jewelry was everything I pictured. Sophie was so creative and her full attention was on us the whole time and making us feel comfortable. I would book another photo shoot with Sophie or the company in a heart beat. They really out did themselves.

I highly recommend Shameless Photography and Sophie Spinelle for ANY woman who wants to be pampered for a day and feel like a goddess. I was ecstatic about my session and had the best time during the shoot. Her choice of vintage clothing and accessories was to die for and she knew exactly how to make me look and feel like a 1950s pinup model. Aside from being a talented photographer, Sophie did an AMAZING job on my hair and makeup too! San Fransisco ladies, run don't walk. I promise you won't regret it!

I can not say enough of about this place. From the moment you start talking with Brooke who helps you with everything from setting up your appointment to what package is right for you. She is literally a sweetheart. Then you are blown away with the rest of the amazing staff you get to work with. I was greeted by three amazing ladies. Sophie (photographer) Natalie (makeup) and Aleina (hair). These women were so gorgeous inside and out. They made me feel at ease and so comfortable. It was really like a nice day with the girls playing dress up. My makeup was out of this world amazing I couldn't believe it! Then my hair was stunning I felt like I was in Broadway. Sophie captured all of this with making it all fun! Words can not do justice to what an experience this was! Not only will you get forever wonderful pictures but you will get to share that experience with truly amazing people. This place is a GEM! Love it!!!

I loved absolutely everything about my shoot and I cannot say enough good things about Sophie and her team! A few months ago, I never would have though I'd be brave enough to do a shoot like this but I am so glad I got up the courage because it ended up being one of the most incredible experiences of my life! Sophie really took the time to get to know me and understand where I am in my life so that that could be reflected in the photos. When I looked at myself in the mirror after the hair/makeup/wardrobe transformation was complete, I was in absolute awe of the goddess staring back at me. Even if there wasn't anything besides this (and there was- every photo is AMAZING), it would have been worth every penny! This is definitely more than just a photo shoot, its a deep reconnection with and reclamation of important parts of yourself. So grateful for such a healing and transformative experience!

I have been planning to do a special shoot for my fiancé. I came across Shameless Photography. I must say, it was the most amazing experience ever! Sophie and her crew were so sweet and so professional. They made me feel so comfortable and beautiful. From the makeup, the hair. Hands down! =)I am still amazed when I see my pictures, my fiancé loved them! They came out so good and will definitely see Sophie soon!I so recommend every lady out there to see Sophie! She is awesome!

I had the good fortune of being matched with Carey, Brenna and Emily to do my photo shoot! They were fun and bubbly, but also very professional. We chatted and laughed throughout the whole session and I felt very comfortable the whole time.Aside from the staff, here are some other things I loved about my experience with Shameless:1) It is a one-stop shop. They provide a wardrobe (though they encourage you to bring your own outfits if you want to wear something in particular), prepare all of your hair and make-up, AND help you conceptualize the "themes" for your shoot, which means selecting props, story lines and colors. This makes the process very convenient and stress-free!2) You are given lots of direction when taking pictures, which REALLY helps for those of us (most of us) who don't do this sort of thing every day. Carey explained to me early on in the shoot that holding certain poses may feel awkward (especially when balancing props in heels) but assured me that the final pictures would be amazing.  3) True to her word, the final photos were phenomenal. I was even impressed by the proofs! It was SO hard to choose my final ones that I am actually purchasing a few extra beyond my package. Note: The airbrushing consists mostly of smoothing wrinkles in clothing, perfecting hair, and intensifying or softening colors, NOT changing your body shape or size. 4) Communication was excellent and easy. You book on their website and Karen (the studio manager) sends you information about your shoot so you have plenty of time to ask questions beforehand. After the shoot, I emailed with Carey several times and she always responded promptly.5) Pricing is very straightforward and transparent. Prices are on the website, plain and simple. Considering everything you get for the package it is a great deal! The whole process (photo shoot to final images) took about 1.5 months. Relatively speaking, that's very fast. I'm very glad I did this when I did. The SF Shameless is still like a start-up, I heard the NY Shameless already has a looong wait list....=)

Shameless Photography made me feel like a movie star.I surprised my husband, who is a actor and enjoys playing dress-up, on his birthday with an all day photo shoot. Yes, Pin-ups can be for men, too.  Actually, we did both individual photographs and couple photos. He felt like Clark Cable and I felt like Marlene Dietrich. Literally, we recreated a scene from Morocco and I played the part in the iconic image of her in a suit.  Suddenly the photo studio appeared to me like a movie set and  I've never felt so empowered. Strip off the suit  and suddenly I'm dolled up in pink and side by side with my husband as James Dean in a leather coat. Scene change: We are a comedic duo as Bob Hope and the leading lady in sailor fashion and On The Road to Bali.  In a flowing mint green dress and in my grandmother's pearls I feel elegant a serene as Grace Kelly. Scene Change: The dress comes off and the little black under bust corset brings out the sensual and strong women within me. The final collection of photographs are amazing. When I look at them I feel like I am looking a movie still and I couldn't be happier. Shophie and her team were a wonder to work with. They accommodated all of our ideas and we had so much fun during the whole process. The photo are not just beautiful images that will last a life time, they also bring back fond memories of what it feel like to be a star. Shameless photography created the perfect atmosphere and energy to be excited about bringing the beauty that is already within to the outside. Not every photography studio can do that. Shapeless photography has a gift: to make people (women and men) feel beautiful and empowered.I highly recommend.Stars are born with Shameless Photography.

I really can't say enough lovely things about Shameless. I bought myself a set of photos for my birthday and it all really exceeded my expectations. The actual shoot itself was a blast - we listened to music, they did my hair & makeup all pretty, I tried on outfits...it was super fun. I was really worried that it'd be all awkward and I'd just pose like an idiot, but Carey, my photographer was super, super good at telling me exactly what to do so that I looked awesome. I do not photograph well. I swear I have a magical ability to halfway blink or retract my face back into my neck the instant a camera clicks. When I got the photos back I was blown away with how INSANELY amazing they are. I mean, I figured they'd be good  but OMG. I did not expect to have photos that I thought were easily comparable to the best ones on their site (in my not-so-humble opinion, heh). I think the best thing though was looking at my unedited photos. I assumed that the unretouched/unfinal photos would be mostly cool but slightly terrifying without retouching but they were honestly really great looking. I was really happy with how I just looked as me without retouching and was really pleased with how 99% of the amazingness is great lighting, poses, angles (and me!) and not Photoshop Magic.  I would absolutely without a doubt recommend them to every lady I know! I think everyone should have amazing pinup photos of themselves.

If you're looking for something that will change the way you feel about your body than please book at shoot with Shameless. Sophie and Carey go beyond providing clients with beautifully shot and edited photos. They provide an experience that is fun and ultimately transformative. Carey was supportive and my cheerleader through out the process from discussing ideas over email to making fashion and beauty choices the day of the shoot. My confidence soars every time I think of that day and look at my pictures. I came away with images that made my grandmother tear up because I looked just like her when she was my age. As a performer, Carey's images have helped me "just hit send" because I know I have a sophisticated head shot. Sophie's amazingly curated vintage fashion closet with straight and plus sizes should alone make you want to book a shoot! Sophie and Carey care deeply about body love and liberation. No matter your size, race, gender presentation, ability, or age they will help you believe in the pin up vixen inside of you. Seriously, do it now. It will change your life!

Can I just say....MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE!?!? because, it was. Thank you Carey and all of your wonderful assistants for making my dream come true by transforming me into a bonafide pin-up girl! Let me note, that I am extremely shy and pretty self-conscious about my body and they made me feel completely comfortable after five minutes of meeting them. On their website, it says that they do this specifically to try to help women face and overcome body image issues and do they ever do an AMAZING job at it!!!!!I recommend that EVERY woman at some point in her life do something like this, and I highly HIGHLY recommend going to Carey and her team to insure this experience is 100% successful. I am not a model, but they made me feel like one and the final images are just....epic. From hair to makeup to attire to accessories to coaching on poses to "choo" (lol), Shameless Photography has it ALL! And I was able to do this with a friend, so we did a shoot together (in addition to individual shoot), which was so fun!! Just a warning, you will feel muscles you didn't know existed the next day - but it will be worth it! :) So much gratitude, Carey & Shameless Team! I plan to continue telling everyone I know about the awesome and healing work you do with the women you photograph!!!!

In this day and age, being a mother to a pre teen daughter asks you to do more than teach her how to finish her homework on time, be nice to others, volunteer your time, make friends, teach them not to listen to the mean girls, smile even when you want to cry and one of the greatest lessons, and one of the most difficult for a mom who themselves does not have the highest self esteem....teach them to love themselves for who they are...for all the wonderful things they are, for who they see in the mirror...teaching them to love the differences in themselves and to embrace individuality in this day and age...where we all know "sex sells" on television, in advertisements, and sadly with peer pressure the "learn to love your body" campaigns have much tough competition.I did not realize the value in doing a photo shoot like I did at Shameless until a few months after it was over, and I want to share with you the journey through the photo shoot and the revelation that really changed my life...all because of a photo.Our Shameless shoot was in June of last year...my best friend and I...getting close to the age where you just are doubting every line, bump and lump that exists on one's body....decided that we wanted to be pin up girls for a day.We spent weeks preparing to go into a studio where, for me...being in clothing that I knew may show the arms I hated, the stomach I loathed....and the anxiety that was in my head leading up to the photo shoot day sent me to the bathroom where I would practice ways of holding myself where the lumps did not spill over, and the wrinkles would fade away......The bart ride to the Shameless studio was a nervous one for my best friend and I.here I was worried about the lumps, she was worried about the wrinkles, I was jealous that she fit into a size 3 jeans, her jealous of my bra....we were girls, women, mothers, nurses, best friends...and all those who knew and love us....would never begin to imagine the negative self talk that went on and on, like horrible tapes in our heads....and we could never imagine just how much our self negativity that was expressed around our children could really affect their own self worth and self esteem.....So we arrived, went upstairs and there she was....Carey, the photographer, and one of the cutest, most sweetest girls that my bff and I have ever met.She and her team of stylists spent HOURS..with Angela and I, and I soon forgot that I was not doing the arm here, leg there thing I had spent hours practicing at home......Carey made me feel so comfortable, and special and allowed us her un-divided attention as she worked to create our experience....we left feeling like we had just conquered the world...we did it, stepped out of our shells, LITERALLY....out of the shell of self-doubt, fear and negative tape rewinds that so many women do to themselves every day.....A few short days later...it came.  The online gallery was ready.I was not.Every picture...I just stared at asking, "is that me?"....I would look, close it out.  Look at my friends, be jelous of hers and than look at mine, and close it out.  My friend called me crying after looking at mine telling me how beautiful I was....all I wanted to do was just pick the one picture that I felt I could actually live with.  Where did these curves come from....do I look "fat" or do I look "curvy" .After a week of daily, sometimes more than once a day...looking at the pictures of myself....I ended up not knowing which of the million images I could actually pick...because they were all so amazing.  I went from thinking how I could ever show myself in pure raw form.....to wanting to show the images, wanting for the world to see that I was proud to be who I was.During the look, do not look phase that I went through with my pictures...I had a real life changing revolution....that would not only change me forever.  I began looking into the love your body campaigns and learning about self love, and teaching your children to have strong self esteem....these photos would impact my daughter and help her to accept her freckles, her thumbs that are double jointed....and help her see that beauty is in all sizes, colors and our differences are our strengths.Today, I look at the pictures that Carey did for me.  I can say that she is not only an amazing photographer, stylist and artist...Carey's work is honestly changing lives and helping women see their bodies in a way that 37 years in this world was never able to do.I have talked to Carey even after my shoot, and she answers emails and phone calls...she truly cares about her clients and wants to help women all over the world learn to love themselves, recover their own self-abuse and become true pin up girls in every sense.A pin up girl, is a strong, independent, beautiful woman who has true sense of self and engages the world with their story....sharing your story in pictures gives life and color to the words that appear in black and white.

Doing a pinup shoot has always been on my bucket list. Sophie and the Shameless team made me feel so beautiful and sexy. The comfort and friendship they give you is genuine. I can't wait till Sophie comes back to NY so I can do it again

6/3/2012

From the first moment I walked in until the end of my shoot I felt taken care of in the best way (I even parked my car on the street and they made sure I didn't get a ticket...as you know, sf parking is a challenge!) The wardrobe was authentic and the team (such multi-talented ladies!) let me try as many things on until I had that "Aha" moment. Make-up and hair was flawless and I even enjoyed wearing the make up post shoot. It was natural enough but polished in away that made me feel like a star long after. I received compliments from co-workers.Shooting with Carey was a delight. She directed in a way in which I felt supported, yet free to express myself. Carey is an adept and efficient photographer, posing for her is easy. Every woman should treat herself to feeling this beautiful, sexy and free. And the pictures? The most empowering pin-ups I've seen.Thank you shameless.

To say I was stunned is an understatement. Carey Lynn gave me all that I imagined and more from start to finish. I decided to give this as a gift to myself, and was so taken aback at the final product, I grinned from ear to ear. I was comfortable, happy, accommodated, and for the first time in a long time, I felt like a princess. She was so professional and her talent obviously lies not just in her photography skills but in her people skills. I always felt I was "un-photographable," and my Shameless shoot proved me wrong. The awesome costume and accessory choices, the props, the time they take to figure out exactly how it will work -- all of it was great. It was a perfect experience. If you're flirting with the thought of your own shoot, flirt no more...just go ahead and give it a big ole french kiss! You will not regret it.

For at least 10 years I have been wanting to do a classic pin-up photoshoot  and for my 26th birthday, I decided to go for it before I get any older ;) My search for pin-up photographers in the bay area was long and extensive, but I choose Shameless because I felt that Sophie's work embodied the classic vintage look I was searching for. Everything from the music on the website to the style of her portfolio, Sophie seemed to understand the true vintage pin-up that I wanted. So I finally booked a reservation with a deposit on the website. A couple of days of later, she sent me an email asking details about what I wanted from the shoot. She took into consideration everything that I asked for, she even did some shopping for vintage outfits per my request. Plus, since I was looking for the vintage look- she had ready research on poses that I could try out. On the day of the shoot, I was feeling confident that she had everything ready and that I just needed to go with the flow, but I was still feeling pretty nervous because I wanted everything to be perfect. As soon as I met Sophie, she automatically made me feel comfortable. She is professional and courteous. Plus, she had ready tons of different vintage outfits- I am sooo jealous! Everything from the make-up & hair to the wrinkles on the clothing, Sophie's attention to detail is that if a perfectionist which I love. She is warm and patient, flexible and creative. The hardest part of the whole experience was choosing the images to get copies of. I know that I will be ordering more from the shoot because where were too many to pick from. I would definitely considering another shoot with Shameless!

I've known about the incredible work of Shameless for years, and Sophie and her team ARE amazing. Such gorgeous boudoir photos, stunning pinup.But I put off posing myself because, you know, I didn't think I could really justify the cash. I'm a burlesque performer and have done more than a few photo shoots in my time, and I thought, ok those are exceptionally nice pictures, but I don't need another set of pretty pictures.Then this spring, a big breakup left my confidence a little shaken and my heart (and ego) bruised. I decided to treat myself to a spin in the Shameless Studio. Girl, I should have done it years ago. I was so wrong - Shameless gave me so much more than another set of pretty boudoir or pinup pictures. Not only did I get fussed over and cooed over by Sophie and her team. Not only did I get to play dress-up in the Shameless closet (and let me tell you, that in itself is WORTH IT). Not only did I end up with too many amazing proofs to choose from, and five beautifully retouched final images. I got my mojo back. Sophie and her team inspired my smoldering glances, my sultry poses, and I carried that out the door with me.As an aside, if you, like I did, think that you don't need another set of pretty pictures: I didn't realize what a great modeling lesson this would be! Sophie taught me so many new things about posing: what do I actually DO with my face to get the effect I want? How do I hold myself? And so on. This is something I can carry with me forever.
