Burlesque Beauty Glamour Queen: Mary Malinski

I had the pleasure of photographing local High Priestess and really good friend Mary last week. I am super lucky that not only is she a really fun gal but she was also a theatre major in university. When you put two very creative people in a room together with a camera and a suitcase full of fun costumes, you get an amazingly creative and dynamic photo session. While we had tentatively scheduled this session to be burlesque in nature, Mary also brought along her Halloween costume from this past Halloween (cause when you put hours into s fabulous costume you want it immortalized!), and many pieces of clothing she hadn’t worn since she had children. I am proud to say we got her into every outfit we decided to use!

We started out the session with her pirate hat, and a beautiful corset like top. We were going for sexy pirate, but the outfit could have just as easily been for a randy barmaid.

Next Mary donned her super hero halloween costume and I got the pleasure of photographing Wonder Woman! Mary put most of this costume together herself, she is so talented! Isn’t it awesome?!

After we played with Wonder Woman, I wanted to give Mary some images that she could use professionally. Mary is a life coach and spiritual advisor, as well as being a High Priestess, mom, wife, friend, and theatre coordinator. You can see more about Mary at her website Walks Within. I got some amzing Glamour images that I hope she loves as much as I do.

Finally, we busted out the burlesque, Gaia Magick style. Mary and I had gone shoppong at Value Village months ago for her burlsque outfit, plus she recyled red and black hair pieces form another costume, and I crafted a red and black fascinator tophat. I went for crazy bold make up for her last outfit too. The results were a smashing success. I love these images, and Mary is a sassy lass!

Thanks Mary for being such an amazing client to work with and a great photo session full of fun and laughter. I’m looking forward to seeing what you bring and what we can create during the next one!
