I commented on this thread some years ago, my then wife had no issues with it. She would routinely assist during the shoot. My current girlfriend is the same, she assists me when I'm shooting and I assist her when she's shooting.

Mine had no problem with it, because I included her in the shoots holding reflectors, taking meter readings, etc.

"Had" or "Has" not problem with it?

My biggest problem is that a good percentage of glamour shots are not very good. If the model weren't naked or partially naked, they wouldn't get the attention they do get. A lot of it comes down to motivation behind the shot, and the message it is trying to convey. Honestly about 70% of the shoots I do are with female athletes. At first my wife didn't like it that much - at the time a 40 something married family man spending his off time with athletic 18 to 22 year olds. But as she has seen my work develop, she understands what my intent is behind the shots. Now she just doesn't care.... because I've earned that trust.

Its by knowing and mastering all the rules that you learn which ones you can break.

My wife is cool with the idea. I use our living room as a studio she even comes in while shooting and suggests poses and props

Your wife is cool... so does she have a sister LOL

Nine years shooting my wife - never tires me and seemingly not her either.

Mine was apprehensive at first but when I involved her in the process (taking meter readings, moving lights, even making posing suggestions, etc) she eventually didn't mind as much.
