Bella Ritz for Paulie Antiques Summer 2012

A little more than a week ago, Nathan Adhikari, Bella Ritz and I took off for a Paulie Antiques photo shoot. We both really enjoyed working with Bella and she was so kind and polite. Bella is actually my boss' daughter in law (to be) so I met her at Luna Cafe. I immediately gave her my card and asked her if she'd be interested in modeling for me! She said "Yes!" and the rest was history. Bella is actually 14 years old... but she looks much more mature, don't you think?

What a beautiful model, I wish I had been so pretty and confident at 14! I love the lighting in the photos where she has the pink flower crown. :)

These are GORGEOUS! Wonderful styling and Nathan did a beautiful job with the photos. Bella is such a doll, and she definitely does look older than 14. Beautiful girl.

Such a lovely photoshoot! I adore those old Coty Airspun compacts! I just bought a new one, & unfortunately the packaging has modernized & is now plastic, but it's still sporting those sweet little cotton tips! xx
