pin up update with Kit Karson

Howdy all, please forgive the long abscence and lack of comments back on the last two posts,,,,, Way busy with work (Thank Goodness) and my Daughters rodeo schedule which has made for quite a rush of a summer! Needless to say I do get a moment here n there to put up a quick post now and then and today is another quick one but one I have been dying to put up!!!! A few months back in May when I was back in Kentucky for “Wonderfest” I was able to set up a shoot with my new pin up modeling friend Kit Karson from Chicago!!! She was very new to a web site called Pinup Lifestyle where her portfolio caught my eye and I was instantly a fan!!! We had been planning the Fest shoot for about two months and last minute show scheduling almost got the shoot cancelled but after a lot of anxious re-planning it worked out. Kit, her Fiance and their little one made the trek to meet us in Louisville. Nelson Deg, and his brother Greg met up with me early in the morning in Dayton at the Air Force Museum and we had to tour the base fast because we had to get back to Kentucky for the shoot. Just in case we were late getting back, I left a key for my room for Kit so she could get ready after her hair and MU appointment, I was met with some HMMMMM’s and high eyebrows from the the gal at the desk with this request, OH NO I thought what is she thinking??????  So as the Day went on Kit shows up ahead of us by about an hour, with bright red lipstick on & a splashy new doo to boot.  She goes to get the room key and meets the same gal at the front desk I had left the key with earlier.  Kit went through the same scrutiny of the high eyebrows,,, Funnier still is that Kit Karson is her pin up name,  when asked to show ID for the key all kinds of silly and embarrassing antics followed. HAAA! Yes the impression at the front desk was questionable about what was going on in my room!!!!! The lot of us finally got back to the hotel just in time to head out to the Dinosaur/fossil bed location that Dave Hodge (the Master of Wonderfest had found for us) We heard of Kits awkwardly funny dealings with the front desk and it was humorous to pass the check in counter a few minutes later with Kit decked out in a 60 miniskirt al-ah Star Trek. More funny looks followed as we left, HAAA! Way to Silly! Anyways we got to the spot across town which was deescalate the day before when we scouting only to find the place full of people & picnickers,,,,, One fella was right where we wanted to shoot and as we started taking pictures he was ever so infatuated with Kit and he never left,,, He just wandered around like a dreamy teen in love at high school! The sun was just starting to set and made for an awesome warm setting and Kit was phenomenal and lending her pin up skills and 50’s style poses to the shoot… Of all the Star Trek sessions I have done Kit is by far the greatest at capturing that sassy innocence of the vintage era & Elvgren style of modeling. She was not only  a wonderful model, but she was extremely funny and very creative about adding her ideas and poses to the shoot!!! We took Lots of fun pictures, and I’m so glad to finally be posting one!!! I’m sure you’ll agree Kit has a gift and one very contagious smile and attitude!!! Thanks Kit and look forward to posting more!!!!!

it's Kit

    Wow! Kit looks like she just stepped out of an episode of the original series. Looking at the background it would probably be Shore Leave. She definitely has the Star Trek look. Glad to hear your doing well. Beautiful picture – thanks for posting.

    Ah man, that was too funny! And such a bummer Greg and I got snarled up in traffic coming back from WP AFB and missed the shoot itself! Ah well, at least we got to meet Kit real quick up in your den of inequity, err, I mean room! Great shot, brother, I look forward to seeing more!

    I wonder how Kit would look in the gold outfit from the gal dancing in, The Creeping Terror, eh? Queue that awesome music CT now and let’s all cut the rug CT-style, eh! Ha!

    Very cool, John. Just iamging what the hotel staff reaction would have been if you had Kit made up and costumed as a green Orion slave girl!

    Kit is a really beauty.
    That B&W Pic looks like it was taken on the set back in the 60’s, very cool Stuff.
    Look forward to see more of Kit.

    Those are great. I agree with Richard Knapp, she looks like someone you’d have seen as an Enterprise officer back on the show. I like the color shots but I think I like the B&W one better just because it has that authentic ’60s feel to it, like a shot someone took when they were making the series.

    Beautiful! The red really looks nice on her! It makes the soft features of her face pop. I’m loving that black and white! It really draws attention to her eyes, which are of course gorgeous!
