Some photos from my shoot with Hooters Girl and Model, Lindsay Michelle.

These are some shots of Lindsay Michelle in her Hooters uniform at my studio in Chicago.  I was working with her to build her a CD for her local Hooters restaurant for poster size prints.  She's one of my favorite models to work with.  I absolutely love her beauty look.  A new southern face that is fresh to the modeling market. I also photographed her in other urban looks, minimalist charm with spontaneous clothing since it made sense to shoot them on a new kind of girl like her but I believe that the Hooters Girl look is where she felt most comfortable in.  She's familiar to posing for the tons of photos that are asked from her during her job that she knew how to model the professional Hooters Girl pose.  Her beauty look and her beautiful personality inside and out came across in her pictures strongly enough to cancel out any so-called imperfections.  Modeling is not just about wearing a sexy dress, its also important to project attitude, independence and character.  If you Wikipedia "Hooters Girl", her picture would probably show up as the first definition of the authentic Hooters Girl. This all-American blonde has a reputation for being reliable and hardworking with a natural charm and affability.  She really works her ass off on a shoot, she always gives that little extra bit to get that picture in a long hard day.  She's a trooper.   She has the ability to be the sexiest model around without needing to expend any effort. I can't wait to see her as a Hooters calendar girl.  I look forward to working with her again in more of an outdoor urban/garden setting whenever hopefully the Chicago weather turns to spring or summer this year.
