    We had a couple of girls down at the studio on Saturday to take some stuff to update their portfolio. The mothers of these two were friends so they came together and we cut them a small break on the price. Anyway, believe it or not, the one is 7 and the other is 12...

    7-year-olds should look like 7-year-olds. Ditto for 12-year-olds.

    That being said, I like #'s 1 and 7.

    Not a fan of #'s 4 and 5 because of the age of the girl and the poses she's in. Just kind of creepy to me.

    JMO. Very good photographs, though.

    I agree with the pp. The pictures are good but they make me cringe.. esp. the one's of the 7 yr. old.. kinda creepy.

    But I agree.. the photographs are well done

    You know I agree... I wouldn't have placed them in those particular poses. As a matter of fact I did very little posing throughout the entire session. The "models" did most of the posing themselfs. I did some minor tweeks here and there of arms, foot placement, etc. But the two photos in question were the models all on their own... The wierd thing is that the mothers were standing there and didn't think that these were innapropriate at all... I have a 3 year old daughter and there's no way that I'll be dressing them like that, or doing pictures like that. I want her to stay young as long as possible, as well as her twin brother.

    Let me show you another one that I thought was a little sketchy. As a matter of fact I asked the mother before I took the shot, "do you really want her in that pose" and she told me it was fine...

    These pics of the 7-year-old have a creepiness factor, but they are not "sick." What's a poor innocent photographer to do with mom on the sidelines encouraging such poses? Lose a client? Not over those photos.

    I'm sure it's tough to be put in that situation as a photographer.

    Short of illegal I don't really care what I shoot. It didn't seem too creepy at the time. Looking back on the photos now, yeah they seem a little age inappropriate but really all it boils down to is a parent letting their kid grow up too fast. I mean I would venture to say that a lot of the young girls that are in these pagents and into modeling do poses that are a little ahead of their age. If you were a young model, looking up to these adult models doing shots like this, you would probably want to try to be as much like them as you could too. Either way, Lucky is right, I'm not turning away a customer...

    4 and 5 are disturbing to me! The shots of the 12 year old are fine, but the ones of the 7 year old give me the creeps. They are so wrong! You are so wrong for shooting thoses poses. Even though you say you did not suggest those poses, you are responsible for what you shoot and how it portrays the MINORS in your photos. I am a mother myself and I am outraged that any mother would stand by and watch her 7 year old daughter pose like that and just do nothing! If the mother didn't care then you as a father yourself should and KNOW BETTER! I don't care what they were paying you should REFUSE to shoot such small kids in a way that sexulaizes them!!!!!! SHAME on you for allowing that! What if someone did that to your child - exploited them for money! The fact that after you shot them, knowing it was creepy and wrong, you still posted them on the internet where any old pervert can see them and take them and post them anywhere. Seriously why would you post those shots of the 7 year old? How could you be proud that you allowed that and shot that!!! Parents should be warned about photographers like you! Sickening!

    Judge much? Well yes since he put them here for judgement!!!!So yes I will judge these as they are. As I said sickening! Anyone who looks at number 5 will see that. There are many others here who have agreed that they are wrong. As a photographer you need to be liable for what you put out there. Is that the kind of reputation he wants to build? To be known as the photographer who looks the other way and shoots and posts such photos of kids? So when it comes to the sexualization of kids - no I will not calm down. The problem is that you are not outraged yourself. Children need to be protected. Not exploited and that is what is going on here. From the mother, photographer,and anyone else who doesn't get why those are wrong, and would post them. I am sure photo forum would agree. The photos of the 12 year old are very nice, but no one will remember this photographer for those. Instead he will be remembered as the guy who took and posted the creepy pictures of a little girl.
