Owner and Photographer
Hey, I'm Karina! Before I became a boudoir photographer, I went through a world of challenges. As a kid, I grew up in the toughest neighborhoods of Chicago and later developed a tumor that changed my life. Although it was treatable, it led to lingering health complications and incredible weight gain.
This experience distorted how I viewed myself and I lived with low self-esteem for years until I decided to make a change. Once I learned to love my body and myself, I knew I wanted to make a difference.
Chicago Pinup Photography was founded as a safe place for women to see just how beautiful they are. My goal is for every gal that walks into one of my studios to realize that celebrities look amazing due to a great team and that they are just as stunning.
We’ve worked with over 2,000 women from around the world and showed them how incredibly flawless they are.
When I’m not photographing beautiful women or creating educational programs for photographers, I can be found singing, cuddling my furry babies (Mimi & Mimo), or spending time with my amazing husband!
