I have one of those wives who doesnt like her picture taken. Here's a quick snapshot I took last weekend while we were sitting on the beach. I think she looks pretty good for being 41, married to me for 21 years and being a newly grandmother.

Nice shot locky. Your wife is very photogenic, but I understand completely. My wife of 25 years is the same way!

Your wife is very beautiful, mine is too and she is the same way - hates to have her picture taken. It is ashame that women such as this deny us the pleasure of capturing them for all.

As the others have said, your wife is beautiful. She looks likes she is in her twenties. But my own beautiful wife is the same way; I have to beg her to get a photo. I wonder why they are like that.

Probably because many of us have the same reaction when we look at a photo like the one locky posted. We say "She's beautiful - if I looked like that I wouldn't mind having my picture taken." :)

It is a shame that so many of our spouses won't allow us the pleasure of practicing our craft using them as our models!

For 41, she does looks really good, I know quite a few women in the late mid 30's that look like they been to hell and back and then went back for a second tour. If you didn't tell the age, I was going to peg her around the late 20's.

Yeah My wife absolutely does not like having her pictures taken. Her sister on the other hand, is not camera shy.

Very attractive young woman, she looks natural before the lens. But i do understand why she feels that way, i hate having my photo taken.
