Pin Up Mom| How a mom of 3 turned Pin Up Girl turned Reenactor

How did you get into that?


Its a question I get a lot when someone finds out I am a Pin Up girl.

Pinup Never give up Hope

6 years ago as a fun way to get out of my comfort zone, I answered an ad on a modeling site for a 40’s Style Pin Up photo shoot. It was something different and fun and felt a bit daring for a newly single Mom of 3. The experience was one I will never forget and something I would LOVE for every woman to have.  It was like playing dress up. I felt beautiful, sexy and glamorous.

Pin Up turned ReEnactor

What started as a fun little hobby turned into a passion and for the last 6 years I have had the absolute BLESSING of being involved with Sure the photo shoots are still very fun but the real joy comes in not only raising money for vets but in meeting and getting to know them.

Several of the other gals and I attend WWII ReEnactments/Events throughout the year selling calendars and various other items, to raise money for our charity and see friends.  Along the way our respect for the reEnactors, the events, the vets and the history grew and we evolved into reEnactors ourselves representing homefront girls.

If it weren’t for doing something daring, I might never have had the opportunity to meet and spend time with WWII Vets. I may never have had the honor of hearing their war stories, their love stories or have gotten to fill a slot on their dance card.
