Jessie is not a model.  She told me that as she came in the door.  But she was a friend of Perla Capetillo, a hair stylist who had done a lot of work with me, had seen some of our pictures, and wondered whether we might be able to give it a go, just for fun?
Of course we could.  Perla is fond of pin-up style, and Jessica also, so we settled on that.  Perla did the hair, Jessie supplied some of the clothes, and we set out to “do pinup”.

If ever there were a girl, and a body, made for pinup, it is Jessie’s, and she ended up having a good time with it.  After she saw the pictures she wondered if, perhaps, she might want to think more about this model thing after all.
