    hey, so these 2 girls im real good friends with, but they are only 17 not 18, and they want to do a photoshoot in their undies, like victoria's secret style. do you think its a bad idea since they are not 18? i am 20 by the way and they are 17.

    :thumbup: or :thumbdown: ?

    Wait till there 18. Not worth risking everything you have to include you freedom if someone didn't think they were just inocent photos.

    In Maryland they are minors and must have parental permission.

    I'm not a lawyer and am not up on laws like this, but to show courtesy at the very least, get parental permission (in writing). It would be even better for you if they were present during the shoot.

    It depends state to state. Here in Texas, you are an adult at 17, which I was thrilled about at the time, but now thinking of having my own children, I am mortified by that. Funny how perspective changes eh?

    So, legally it depends on where you are, but I think you should probably avoid it ethically regardless :)

    I'd be willing to bet most parents, when they found out the pictures would be on the Internet for all to see, would not be willing to do the photo shoot.
