MEET THE BOARD OF WHY NOT PETITES
_DSC5249 copy.jpg

In the creative world, there is always an amazing team behind the scenes that you never get to see. In this case, you do! We are the models in front of the camera as well as the team coordinating things behind the scenes. We do also have the help of a few other people that you don't always get to see or hear from. You will get a chance to learn a bit about them here. Below you will get to know the people that help make Why Not Petites successful! 

Hey there I'm Andrew! I was actually the first person Britney talked to when she came up with the idea of Why Not Petites and jumped at the opportunity to help her vision become a reality. We worked on the logo and fleshed out the idea together and now here we are! 

I have been working with fellow creatives for half a decade in the Chicagoland area. I have worked as a photographer, videographer, audio engineer, graphic designer & much more. Being in the creative field, I have always worn many hats and enjoyed learning each new skill.

 

As my skillset expanded, I found a friendship with Britney Wittes, the founder of Why Not Petites. Hearing about the vision, and seeing the drive behind Britney’s eyes, I joined the team from the beginning to use my expansive creative knowledge for pushing Why Not Petites forward.

 

I now work behind the scenes of Why Not Petites in any way I can to continue to support the vision and message behind the company. When Britney asked me to be in charge of the podcast, I was happy to do so! I also help run their events behind the scenes, to ensure everything goes smoothly.

 

I am always willing to do anything for WNP because I believe in what they are working towards. I am excited to watch this idea blossom even more and can not wait to see what the future holds.

To me, modeling has become so much more than a stoic figure displaying clothes or an item. Prior to meeting Britney, my experience with modeling was minimal and mostly in the realm of e-commerce. While commercial modeling is fun (and a great paycheck), creatively, it can feel pretty rigid performing the same motions for every shoot. Quite frankly, as a 5’5 model, runway or editorial modeling wasn’t even in the cards for me because I took “no” for an answer from my agents at the time and petite models on the catwalk weren’t really a thing…or so I thought.
 
One day, my friend, Taylor, sent me an invite to a launch party for this new company called, “Why Not Petites.” She and I love any reason to dress up and get free food, so it was a no brainer for us. Plus, we got to see what this “petite modeling” thing was all about. There must have been some magic in the air that day because it sparked, no, exploded this energy inside of me and launched me into this spectacular side of modeling.
 
From taking 1:1 coaching sessions with Britney to researching the ins and outs of the modeling industry through their forum and online resources, I owe my start into runway and the high-fashion community to Britney and the “Why Not Petites” team. They have opened my eyes to see beyond perceived limitations and unlock the artist inside me. I am so proud to be a part of “Why Not Petites” and look forward to building this community further!
