LOS ANGELES, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Two California women have a different kind of photography business -- creating pinup photographs of wives and girlfriends for soldiers stationed overseas.
Pink Kitty Studios, owned by Lori Mann and Adrienne Cragnotti, operates out of a hot pink house in Los Angeles. Mann is the photographer and Cragnotti the stylist.
"The gals often wear classic clothing, and we have lots of props that are throw-backs to that World War II era," Mann said.
Pink Kitty brings in hair stylists to reproduce the page-boy bobs and other retro hairstyles.
The studio can turn photos into posters and even calendars -- but many women send CDs for husbands and boyfriends who have laptop computers but little wall space.
Mann said being a woman-only business gives Pink Kitty an advantage -- "many of the women state that they're not sure how their husbands would feel about them shedding their clothes for a male photographer while they are stationed 10,000 miles away."
