Sorry to hear that.

What exactly didn't she like?

My ideas, dam I try my hardest but I guess there is a hate relationship with a camera, but "sorry honey you are not having a model."

Hell am I the only one who has this battle or have the rest of you given up :)

It's a learning process. don't give up! I've taken hundreds of photos that Kim hated. But over the years I've gotten lucky with a few that she liked, and that paved the way for more shoots down the road. She almost doesn't mind it now, as long as she isn't too tired. It took me forever to get her to model for me and then I went through everything you're going through. I know how you feel!

Was image of themselves the main issue?

For what it's worth, I've only shot a girl once before...and it was completely tame. I also hated the results because she didn't dress like she was getting pictures taken. I also have 2 unpaid shoots scheduled with a 3rd in the works. All of which are also tame.

I'm anxious to shoot the babe on the bike though...NOT tame...but she hasn't gotten back to me on when she can/wants to do it. :(

It just takes time and patients and trust! She'll come around. Especially after she hears compliments.

I can see them. I think I mentioned to you before that her smile is out of this world, and those beautiful big eyes. Hard to find words other than WOW!

Thank you. We have done some semi-nude/glamour shots that would knock your socks off (black lingerie :eek: ) but I would be sleeping at work if I posted them. Someday, someday

I was just looking at your webpage. Cool photos. We've never been to Hawaii, but would love to go someday. You've got some fantastic photos in your collection. And your wife is a total knockout! She looks like she would be so much fun. You are a lucky man!
