    I appreciate the critique but you do realize that not much intentional posing can be done with a hyper, strong-minded toddler right? All of these poses were candid, natural movements. I did not remotely attempt to pose her. The idea was to capture her in natural motion and emotion, not create a photo for competition judging.

    Hi Alan,

    Not asking how I should feel. I know how I feel. Just want to make sure I wasn't crossing some ethical guidelines that could get me into trouble!

    Thank you, and a good way to think about it. At this age, absolutley I would be comfortable showing her as a teen or adult. I have worked with children for many years and I feel like that cutoff lands right about when the child him or herself becomes uncomfortable with those areas not being concealed. At this age, my daughter could run around the beach with no diaper on without a care in the world, but my son (almost 4) would be very embarrassed.

    Alan, I am not asking for emotional support. I am asking if I can get into legal trouble.

    That's fine, but did you not ask for input?

    I think you did:

    The detail here that should also be considered is that they're on a publicly viewable website on the internet. I'm not saying that I think you did anything wrong or inappropriate, but by putting them on the internet you are also setting the stage to allow others to abuse the photos.
