Hairband on the wrist of the first subject is a big no no for me. Need to figure out some new ways to pose your subject's hands... just not digging these. Good exposures and nice processing. Thanks for sharing!

I need input, I had someone contact me from a school that I do not have any spokesmodels at yet, and she is pregnant and due in September and will be out of school for a month. is it a good idea to sign her as a spokesmodel or not? :) I am leaning towards no since she is pretty pregnant and is probably showing. Probably not the senior pictures she wants to value for years to come?

but on the other hand a paying customer is a paying customer and the school is a good size so I can get a few more with out problems possibly. hmm.

I think the issue of her being a spokesmodel and her getting photographs done are separate issues. Whether she is showing in her senior photos is one thing, but she may want Maternity photos as well, and those she will (most likely, depending on circumstance) treasure for years to come.

If you are still leaning towards signing her, why dont you do two separate sessions? One you can use towards a maternity portfolio, and one towards her senior photos. If you do children as well, she may be interested in having you do her baby and you may gain a client for years to come.

If you are still leaning towards not, then don't do it.

If you are thinking about signing her, I would also be careful about how you approach that. The stigma of being a pregnant teenager isn't the same as when I was in high school. You can thank "teen mom" for that.

I'd do it. I had a senior spokesmodel last year who had her baby shortly before her her model session. I'd say offer the spokesmodel benefits but do a regular session with her and have her pay.

Eh, if she's young she won't be too showing....just concentrate on the face poses for the rep cards.

if she is showing, you could paint a 0 over her belly button, a 2 above that and a horizontal 13 below the 0 :D
