Pin Ups for Pitbulls Calendar 2010

This year I was again fortunate enough to shoot for the Pin Ups for Pitbulls Calendar. Pinups for Pit Bulls works to educate the public about the history and temperament of the American Pit Bull Terrier and Bully Breeds, to raise awareness about Breed Specific Legislation and Breed-Specific abuse, and to raise funds for bully-breed-friendly rescues and dogs in need. Last year through calendar sales and events they were able to raise almost $20,000 for animal rescue charities. Outstanding!

Pin Ups for Pitbulls founder, Deirdre Franklin, was recently interviewed for NBC 10 where my photo and many fabulous others were featured as part of the interview. That's exciting! Check out the video here And if you're really in a video watching mood!, you can see the behind the scenes of last years calendar photo shoot on Discovery News at this link.

This years calendar theme was " A Tribute To Classic Pinups." I shot the photo for May, which is a tribute to Marilyn Monroe's 'Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend' number in the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

I shot some fun, behind-the-scenes goings on at the photo shoot and I thought I'd share a few. :)

Deirdre gets her 'Marilyn on' with the help of make up artist Josh Bessinger and hair /wardrobe stylist Rob Paluso.

                                                    Lexi checks in to see if she can help

                                     Baxter wonders why he's not allowed to help. lol

                               Deirdre assists a few of her 'gentlemen' friends to get ready ;)

Baxter requires coaching with diamonds that smell like beef jerky (yes, we rubbed jerky on the bling, lol)

Carla Lou needs no coaching. She's an old hand at this after her many photoshoots and public appearances!

And finally, the end result:
