Shameless Photography

Only a year after its wildly successful launch, Shameless Photography (http://www.shamelessphoto.com) has gone bicoastal, with a new studio in the Bay Area's Noe Valley -- though Sophie still maintains her atelier in New York's East Village as well.

When shot through Sophie Spinelle's lens, any woman can be transformed into a 40s glamor girl. "Shameless is about the power of flirtation and subtlety," says Spinelle. Her collection of authentic vintage clothing -- plus her unparalleled skill at expert retro makeovers -- means that Sophie knows just how to make every client feel empowered, beautiful, and sexy.

Bachelorette parties are also welcome at Shameless Photography, where music and refreshments are included in event packages. Spinelle walks every woman through jaw-dropping retro looks, and she's brought her full arsenal of fabulous props -- from Mad Men-style sexy secretary outfits (complete with vintage typewriter) to naughty-housewife ensembles (think ultrasheer aprons) to tiaras fit for a princess.

Many women have found that a Shameless photo shoot is the perfect gift for their boyfriends, fiances, or grooms -- or for themselves.
