How far in advance can I book my boudoir, pinup or glamour photo shoot with Revival Pinups?
We recommend booking 4-6 weeks out as we do book up fast. If you do need something sooner more than likely we can accommodate.

Can I come in for a consultation?
Absolutely! Consultations are a great way to meet your photographer and to take a tour of the studio. At this time there is a deposit of $40 for all consultations. We hate to do it but we have a very full schedule and unfortunately run into a lot of no shows. If you show up for your consultation your $40 is refunded, and if you book a session it can be applied towards your balance.  (Does not apply towards any specials or vouchers).

How do I book a Revival Pinups photo shoot?
Send us an email at, and we will get back to you with the details.

Is there a deposit to book my shoot?
Yes, a non-refundable deposit of $100 is required to book your shoot. The $100 will be applied to your balance.

How are payments accepted?
Payments for deposit can be made over the phone with all major credit cards. I am also able to accept payments through Paypal ( is the email), Venmo and Chase QuickPay are also accepted.  Sorry, checks are not accepted at this time, but we do accept cash.

If I cannot make my appointment time, am I able to reschedule?
Yes, however please note that if you do not give a 24 hours notice your deposit is nontransferable and you will need to book another session date with another $100 deposit.

What is Revival Pinups refund policy?
Due to the custom nature of photography, the session price and all products ordered are non-refundable.

When is the studio open for shoots?
Our schedule isn’t set in stone, most weeks we are available all 7 days, we will find a time that works best for all.  For deals and groupons, we only photograph on certain days.

Where is Revival Pinups located?
Revival Pinups photography studio is located in Chicago, IL in the West Town neighborhood.  Our address is 526 N. Ashland Ave, Chicago, IL 60622.

Can I stop by the studio anytime?
The studio is by appointment only and we are open for consultations and shoots with notice.

Where do I park?
Street parking is free and plentiful.

Do you provide outfits?
Revival Pinups does not have the capacity to house outfits for all the different sizes and personalities that come with our clientele.  I recommend bringing your most critical friend shopping with you, they will never steer you wrong!

What about getting hair and makeup done?
We have a salon in studio where all female stylists provide hair and makeup. This service can be added onto your shoot for $75 each service/$150 for both. We highly recommend everyone book hair and makeup. The service is truly amazing and really completes the experience of your boudoir, pinup or glamour photography shoot.

Can I bring a friend?
We welcome bringing a girlfriend or significant other, I say the girlfriend is more fun, save the surprise for your significant other with the final images!

Who will be there during my shoot?
We are an all female staff, from the photographer to the makeup artist/hairstylist.

What goes on during a shoot?
The first thing we go over when you arrive is looking through what you brought. I want to see all your outfits, any inspiration pictures you have or your ideas. Once we go over that we’ll then pick out some favorite music and get shooting. I direct the shoot and help you with your poses the entire session. You do not have to make up posing by yourself (unless of course, you have been practicing and want to show off your hard work!) I’m also a fast shooter and keep the pace going the entire time. It’s a fun and empowering experience!

How long before I get to view my proofs?
You will be able to view your proofs after your shoot (does not apply for specials or mini shoots, they will be sent to you same day).

How long does it take to receive my images after I place my order?
If you are sticking with the digital images in your package turnaround is 7-10 business days. If you are ordering products turnaround is 20-30 business days. 

Does Revival Pinups edit the images?
We have different retouching packages you may choose from… basic to magazine glamour quality.

Will my images appear on Revival Pinups’ website?
Your privacy is our top priority and your images will not be published on our website without your written permission.

Do you only photograph pinup/boudoir? I’ve been photographing for over 25 years, from fine art to fashion to portraiture to music photography.  You may view my other portfolios at
