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.

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.

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'....

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.

thank you. I am glad to hear you made it through. No one of legal age should be that repressed. Frankly I suspect enough damage was done before she was legal. But I will keep the faith she will emerge from it.

Bravo Lindsay for your courage to be photographed at all much less nude. The photograph is nicely set and lighting works well. slightly disappointed with the background, but overall very nice.

thank you, and I do agree. But it being a testing, I just didn't have the background wrapped because I was shooting all over the place. But I do agree. anytime I see a test shot I have up here which has equipment in view which I can't completely crop out, I cringe.
