                  Revival Pinups

1st Annual Breast Cancer Survivors’ Boudoir Photo Shoot Contest at Revival Pinups
& a portion of profits from all photo shoots booked in October will be donated towards breast cancer research

Description: Revival Pinups has “photographed many cancer survivors in the past, who naturally wish to see themselves in their best light and want to feel confident about their bodies once again. Getting excellent boudoir photographs taken is a huge self-confidence booster for any women, especially those who have been through such a difficult experience. Our photographer Lori lost her Grandmother 2 years ago to breast cancer. Her Aunt Sandy is a 4 year survivor, her Mother had her double mastectomy on 11.5.12.

Entering the contest: If you or someone you know has been affected by any kind cancer that affects women, please consider entering our contest to win a FREE Boudoir Photo Shoot Package. Entering the contest is easy, simply send us your survival story along with one or two photos of you and we will post some of the entries on our blog. The winner will receive a deluxe boudoir photo shoot package, including full makeup & hair by Kate Johnson, a photo shoot with Lori, plus 10 beautiful images that will help you further realize your true beauty! Anyone who has a cancer survival story is a true winner, and so all entries will receive a discount toward a future boudoir photography session. In addition to providing our contest, Revival Pinups will also be contributing a portion of each photoshoot in October toward breast cancer research.

Cakes will be crushed, people will be filled and covered. If we get a Crème Brûlée torch – Marshmallows will be roasted for s’mores off of a poor slave’s face! Food play is a little objectification, a LOT of oral fixation, and a bit of sadomasochism rolled into one good time. Eat food, smear food, fuck food, beat people with food…The possibilities are endless.
