It's always both exciting and nerve-wracking when shooting a brand-new model. Exciting because it's new and fresh and inspiring. Nerve-wracking because expectations are all over the place. Not only is Edie a new model to me, but she's also a new model having never really modeled before. Edie Adelstein is the Arts Editor (and quite an amazing writer) at the alt-weekly I currently work for as a graphic designer and it only just recently came to my attention (despite us having worked together for several years now) that she was interested in modeling for me. And boy am I grateful that it did. Not only is she beautiful but she's a rare natural and seems completely at ease in front of the camera. I absolutely can't wait to shoot more of her in the future!
