Lindsay's first nude series. First shoot in any form. Be kind and respectful of her please. And yes, she is verified 18 years 3 weeks old since I've already been asked.

Stunning, high-impact perspective and a beautiful, feminine form.

TREMENDOUS DEPTH AND A STUNNING PERSPECTIVE ON FEMININE BEAUTY AND SENSUALITY. I'M GUESSING THE 'TEST SHOOT' WENT VERY WELL.

She did great, yes. But sadly her family discovered what she had done and this was the end of her modeling work. She was just 18 and still living with her very conservative parents. This happens a lot sad to say.

YES, I KNOW IT HAPPENS REGULARLY; AND SOME OF THE LOVELIEST, MOST INNOCENT, EXPLORATORY, ADVENTUROUS AND RATHER EAGER YOUNG GIRLS ARE DISSUADED FROM ENGAGING IN THE EXPERIENCE OF SENSUAL (AND EVEN EROTIC) MODELLING AT A TIME WHEN THEY ARE MOST SUITED TO IT.
I WONDER IF YOUR BEAUTIFUL, OPEN-LEGGED ADVENTURER WAS "GROUNDED" AS A RESULT OF HER MODELLING INTERLUDE?
I PREFER THE YOUNGER, INNOCENT, AND SOMEWHAT APPREHENSIVE TYPE OF MODEL WHO ILLING TO TRY SOMETHING THAT SHE'S NEVER DONE BEFORE .... OF COURSE, FAMILIES THEN HAVE TO BE "MANAGED" AND CAN OFTEN PUT A STOP TO PROCEEDINGS.
MY GALLERIES CONTAIN A NUMBER OF YOUNG LADIES WHO WERE ACTUALLY QUITE EAGER TO EXPLORE AND DISPLAY THEIR EMERGENT SEXUALITY ONLY FOR FAMILY (USUALLY MOTHER) TO SENSE WHAT WAS EITHER HAPPENING, OR ABOUT TO HAPPEN, AND THEN PUT A STOP TO THINGS.

You have some nice works there I see.
I like using fresh young women when I can. though some can be irritating in the sense that they think they should be making $50-75 an hour right out of the gate!
It's most frustrating. With Lindsay, she was actually brought to the shoot by her mom under the false story I was doing portrait work. So mommy waited outside in the car while her little mormon virgin daughter did her thing. It might have stayed a secret, but sadly she was not very discreet with her email account privacy and momma found some pics and called me up. After giving her the "well your daughter is 18 and signed a release,... as well as a little choice criticism about how teens will rebel if repressed long enough" But as I expected I never heard back from Lindsay sad to say. I thought she was pretty open minded given her upbringing.

I tell you.... if it's not a controlling boyfriend, it's a parent. combine that with the more free minded amateurs who do a test shoot or two then flake, and working the 18-22 year old amateur circuit can be draining. I am glad I have an equal amount of established seasoned models I work with as well. But as I am always looking for new faces, the frustration will continue as I play 'hit or miss'....

Sounds like we are very similar. I actually enjoy the process of identifying potential modelling candidates from the teen amateur category and then working on them to encourage them to give modelling a go. Quite often they are complimented and enthusiastic and, if it were only up to the girl, there would be agreement for a developing relationship in which I could push their boundaries gradually to the point where they are doing art-nude or erotic-nude. Sometimes that happens, but the teen category is fraught with jealous boyfriends and protective parents, as you say .... alas!
I am currently working with Natassia who you can see in some see-through panties, orange panties, one-piece swimsuit, etc. She is 20 and the only reason she hasn't done erotic-nude is the boyfriend in the background who is limiting her natural inclination to try nude modelling. I am still hopeful, though.
Another of my models (15 yo Peta) was (like your Lindsay) brought to me on three separate occasions by her mother. On each occasion, mother stayed reading in her car whilst her daughter and I strolled along the riverbank so that I could shoot her. In the shots in which she is wearing a multi-colour bikini you can see her reclining and parting her legs for the camera. The girl was quite comfortable in 'opening-up' for me and she generously allowed me to take many shots of her that were provocative and which sort to feature her slender, fresh, innocent teen body.
I cut a DVD for her and sent it to her, but with the more provocative shots omitted. Although, because of her age, she was always bikini-clad, I think her mother sensed that her daughter was posing for more tantalising and revealing shots so I am confident that this was the reason Peta chose to end her first-time modelling experience. (I have some more shots of her in my DA Stash and can give you links if you'd like to see more of Peta.)
Your Lindsay is certainly a stunning teen and I just love the way she willingly exposed herself to your camera; laying on her back to freely invite your artistic appreciation of her beautiful form.
If you have more shots of her, I'd love to see them and, if you don't mind, I'd love to hear a lot more detail about how you got her to your studio and what happened when you did.
For example: where did you meet her; how did you introduce yourself; what was her initial reaction; when/how did you introduce the idea of nude work to her; what was her reaction; what was mommy's reaction about what she thought to be non-nude work; what sort of shots did she think her daughter was going to be doing; and how did you 'manage' mommy initially; how many shoots did you do with Lindsay; when did you first introduce the nude component; how did Lindsay adapt to her first nude shots; was she amenable to you touching her to direct her into various positions; was she a 'silent type' just doing whatever you wanted, or did both of you discuss poses and positions with Lindsay being quite interactive; did Lindsay seem guilty in any way, especially with mother waiting outside; did she seem a little embarassed after the shoot when she was returning to confront her mother; how did you know Lindsay was a mormon and a virgin (gee, what a fantastic combo .... young, teen, gorgeous, mormon, virgin, mommy nearby ... but with legs spread and her photographer capturing that beautful nude body and stunning pussy ... WOW!). I would love to hear ALL the details about this young girl and everything you did with her.
I also like your attitude in standing right up to mommy's indignation and her attempt to cast you as a villain. I would love to have been there when you got straight back at mommy by telling her that her daughter was 18 and had signed a release .... too late now, mommy. perhaps, as a result of her mormon upbringing, Lindsay wanted to cut loose a little and take a walk on the wild side to unleash her sexuality a little and to feel that, at the age of 18, she had now become a desirable, sensual and sexual young woman who wanted to explore and test her limits.
I have found that mommy's usually don't get too indignant, perhaps because they have a good idea of what their daughter has done and what sort of photos she has posed for, so they respond more often by simply 'withdrawing' their daughter from the situation that they have gotten themselves into and then allowing time to smooth the 'turbulent waters'.
I'd love to hear more from you and I'll have a very close look at your DA galleries. (If you have any additional material, I'd love to see it.)
I think the 'hits' tend to compensate for the 'misses'.
Good luck.

Lindsay is quite a brave woman. I am completely aware of how nervous the first time was...she did a splendid job. you obviously kept her at ease throughout the shoot..for that I commend you.

Thank you. Sadly, Lindsay's mother discovered what she did and as Lindsay still lives with her parents and lives in an incredibly controlling and conservative environment, future projects seem unlikely at present. 18 does mean adult but it's a meaningless concept in the home she lives in. She is no doubt 'grounded' with her license being taken away by her parents, etc, etc...
This was an attempt for her to break out of that suppressive environment. But I dare say it has been dampened for the time being. I keep my hope that she discovers her law given liberation and breaks free at some point. No one who is 18 deserves to have a parent still grounding them, holding their license hostage and even picking out their undergarments so they are not salacious.

Sorry, I am used to losing good models due to disgruntle husbands and boyfriends, not overly conservative parents.

Oh man, I am sooo sorry to hear this. thank you for sharing this with me. I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers. I, too, was very much in the same environment and it wasn't until I was almost 21 before I could break free thanks to my incredible boyfriend/ photographer. We've been together now for just about 3 years.
