    i have a person interested in having me take her picture, and so i asked ok what would you like give me an idea of what would fit you what you would like to see etc....and this is the response she gives

    I just want the pictures to show im not a lil girl anymore....

    im thinking oh poop whats that mean...so i ask her to elaborate is she thinking one area or multiple areas etc... she responds with.....

    I am 2nd youngest of 6 kids I have always been know as the cute little girl, I have 1 little sis but thats it for younger. and i dont want to be known anymore as cute. I think it would be fun to go to other places to take pics.

    so any ideas....im kinda lost as to what to do here...any type of outfit i should recomend her bringing some sort of area should I just run and hide lol i really dont have much of a thought at all here....

    She wants you to make her look like an adult, I've gotten a similar request before.


    Basically she is constantly being treated like the child of the family and she wants photos that show that she is not the child everyone makes her out to be.


    As for how to go about shooting this...well you are on your own in that department, sorry I can't help you there.

    All I can say is a business suit but not knowing her I am clueless.

    Talk to her about what she plans on wearing, that's what's going to tell you what she wants.

    If it's a suit, it will seem like she's "playing grown-up".

    I interpret this as her wanting something that would show off her sexuality more. I don't mean burlesque or porny, but something where, she'll be say....wearing a low-er cut top and will want you to emphasize that.

    This leads me to believe that the intended audience is going to be family and friends...Somehow I don't think burlesque or porny is the goal. Like Sw1tch said you are going to have to talk it out and get specifics.

    I'm thinking something along the lines of this, except edgier.

    With the photos you'll be shooting, I think it might be in your best interests to emphasize sexuality, power, and confidence--none of which are typically associated with "the baby of the family".

    I think you might try some shots with harder lighting to take away some of the "soft" that I think she is trying to shed.

    I'd let her decide on what she wants to wear, it's her idea, then i'd improvise from there.

    And yes, those are mine, thanks! :D
