Irene Andsager for Paulie Antiques Winter 2013

Last Monday we shot a new model I met at a Thai restaurant called Nitaya (by the Art Theatre in Champaign). She was so incredibly sweet and kind and I knew that I wanted to use her as a model immediately! I kicked myself for not having my card and wrote my number, e-mail, and blog url down on a piece of paper for her. She eventually e-mailed me saying she wanted to model and I was so thrilled. It was unbelievably chilly and unfortunately we were only able to shoot for less than 20 minutes before the cold got the better of our model! We have yet to re-shoot this outfit.... but I thought I'd share the process photos, regarless. I have so many more plans for this shoot! I can't wait to show you the rest...... Thanks so much to Irene and her mother for transportation and helping with lighting.
