Sizzlin’ Sunday – Featuring Pin Up Model, Holly Ann from Pennsylvania

HollyAnn-smokingHolly Ann – Pinup model from Bethlehem, PA

Having been born and raised in a small farming community in Iowa, modeling was something that was just a distant dream. I never imagined I would actually get a chance to do it. Even though I’m not considered “model” shape or size by society’s standards, I had always secretly wanted to do it. After going through a marriage, a child, a divorce and trying to make it on my own, I REALLY didn’t think I would have an opportunity, and I was only getting older and older.

I had a friend who was taking a photography class and he casually said he needed a model. I wasn’t sure how to approach him about it, but decided to put myself out there and ask if he had found a model. I was sort of self-conscious about my body shape and seeing

his other projects he had worked on were with much younger, THINNER models. He basically said that everyone has a different size and shape, and he was looking forward to collaborating.

I have had the privilege to work with several photographers since who have worked with my curves and we have created some amazing work together. I am still self-conscious about my shape when compared to other models I see, but i have also come to realize that there is absolutely nothing wrong with curves.

I have gravitated mostly towards the buxom pinup style of modeling and recently was approached by a photographer who works in the cigar industry.

These cigar shoots have opened up a totally new world in my modeling and I have gotten to meet some really great people at meet and greets in the cigar bars in my area. And I am starting to gain an appreciation for a premium hand-rolled cigar.

  1. Cigar smoking man

    So she’s not even a true lady of the leaf? Just looking for her claim to fame in the industry and doing it by taking all her clothes off… Would have been better if she actually smoked cigars and her pictures were tasteful. I just don’t see how you go from women like last Sunday to women who don’t even smoke.
