About Liz

Liz Huckleby has been a professional photographer in the greater Tulsa area for almost 15 years. She is self taught and after starting out photographing general portraiture like families, weddings, and high school seniors she began specializing in women's portraiture in 2011. From 2012 - 2018 she worked as Pinup by Liz and in 2019 she rebranded to shoot under her own name and expand her work beyond pin up to other types of women's portraiture including boudoir, glamour, beauty, alt, and yes she still regularly does pin up shoots! When Liz isn't in the studio you can usually find her browsing vintage shops, attending live music or burlesque shows, exploring Route 66, or spending time with her husband and 2 sons at their home in Adair.

Liz's work has been published in over 100 magazines and used by pin up models and burlesque performers around the world. She enjoys photographing women of all shapes, sizes, and walks of life. Her favorite part of a shoot is that "AHA" moment a woman has in front of the camera where you can visibly see her anxiety over the shoot melt away and she starts to accept that she IS having a great time and knows that she will love her photos, and then seeing that client leave the studio with a new boost of confidence.

What to expect from your photo shoot experience:

Your session fee includes your planning consult session, a private portrait session in up to 3 outfits/backgrounds at our studio or at a local location of your choice with access to our studio wardrobe and prop closet, full pose and facial expression direction throughout your photo shoot, and the reveal and ordering session. Hair and makeup services are available as an add on service with our studio artist Katie Belle.

Booking - The initial booking process is done online through email. Once you select your shoot date and pay your session fee your chosen date and time will be reserved for you. We schedule all photo shoots on Thursday afternoons. Once you book you will receive a digital planning guide to help you start brainstorming for you shoot and to give you all the info you will need for your consult.

The consult appointment - This is a casual meeting where you will meet Liz, tour the studio, go over contracts and plan your shoot in detail. You will also have time to browse the studio wardrobe and try on clothing to wear in your shoot. Consults are typically scheduled on Thursdays and Saturdays.

The photo shoot - This is what it's all about! When you arrive you will first go into hair and makeup for about an hour and a half of pure pampering. Or if you elect to not have hair and makeup you will arrive ready to shoot. During your shoot you may wear up to 3 outfits and our full studio wardrobe will be available to you. Liz will completely guide you through posing throughout your entire shoot. Refreshments and light snacks are included and you will take a swag bag home with you.

The reveal and ordering session - About a week after your photo shoot you will return for your portrait reveal and ordering session. This is where you will view your photos and select the ones you would like to purchase and place your order. Prints and products are purchased separately and payment installment plans are available. See below for our full pricing guide. Ordering sessions are typically scheduled on Saturdays.

Delivery - Your prints and products will be delivered within 4 weeks of your final payment. You have the option to pick up your order at the studio or have it shipped for an additional fee.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What if I have zero photo shoot experience? A: No worries! A large percentage of our clients are first timers. We have photographed hundreds of women over the years and are experienced in working with all experience levels, genders, races, body types, and walks of life. We can help walk you through every step of the way from planning your shoot, wardrobe selection, hair and makeup styling, posing assistance during your shoot, and an ordering appointment to help you select your photos and products to help you remember your session forever.
  • Q: Can I shoot in a certain style like pin up or boudoir? A: Yes! Once you book your shoot with a paid deposit we will start the process of planning your photo shoot. We will discuss your interests, favorite characteristics, and more to style your shoot and give you custom portraits that reflect what you want them to. Liz loves starting with a client's ideas and adding her own artistic touch to it.
  • Q: Do I have to get naked? OR Can I get naked? A: We will shoot to your comfort level! We will give you beautiful portraits whether you want to be photographed in a full coverage gown, nude, or anywhere in between! We will discuss your wishes and comfort levels in depth at your consult appointment to ensure that you have a comfortable experience in our studio.
  • Q: Can my shoot take place at a location? A: Most likely! As long as we can obtain permission to shoot there I am more than happy to do location shoots! If a location is not in my local range (which is within a one hour drive of my home) additional travel fees may apply. I always love to hear client ideas for locations and I also have a long list of great locations, don't be afraid to ask me to suggest places for us to shoot!
  • Q: What if I don't have anything to wear? A: We will take care of you! We have an extensive studio wardrobe containing both vintage and modern looks with all ranges of coverage in sizes ranging from XS - 4X. Liz is more than happy to suggest outfits for you to try on during our consult appointment.
  • Q: I don't know how to do my hair and makeup for a photo shoot. A: Hire Katie Belle! For $100 she will do a full heat set on your hair to create luxurious curls, plus a full face of photo ready makeup. Katie has been on my team for almost 6 years now and knows how to create beautiful makeup looks that can stand up to studio lighting.
  • Q: Is my session fee refundable if I cancel my photo shoot? A: No, session fees are nonrefundable and nontransferable. Our calendar is limited and once your session fee is paid we are under contract to hold your time and date for you. If you cancel and we are not able to fill your spot we lose income and the session fee recovers some of that.
  • Q: Can I bring a friend to my shoot? A: Yes, if it helps you feel more comfortable you are more than welcome to bring an escort along to your photo shoot. We only ask that you limit it to one guest due to limited space, and that your guest be over 18 due to mature imagery in the studio.
  • Q: What if I am shy/nervous/think I'm not photogenic/feel like I need to change something about my appearance before I book a shoot? A: We hear this all the time and all we can say is take the leap and do this for yourself and trust us to give you an amazing experience and we guarantee you will be glad that you did. We have worked with hundreds of women over the years and are experienced with styling, posing and lighting you to bring out your very best.
