Seriously?  Is that legal?  smile

LOL, pictures yes, sexy pictures no...if it creeps you out then don't...you being completely uncomfortable is not going to make for great images anyways...

P.S.  I'm sure someone will call you some sort of prude...ignore them...

Do it.  Avoid alcohol and make sure you get a release...er, model release.

I would never take sexy pictures of my mom.


It's just ewww to me because she is my mom lol I would problably die laughing the entire session. I really rather not see her trying to be sexy lmao I take Nudes and sexy pictures of my sister and I'm fine with it, But please not mom I would be traumatized for life .

Oh also, just to add, she has like a glamor model build...muscley, size 4, with fake boobs. Lolol. But she's still...old.

So like...MAYBE I could see her being in sexy pics? Just probably not with me taking them. Sooooooooo awkward.

I'll take some nice G-rated portraits instead. tongue

"art" and subject matter are up to the artist. if you are just uncomfortable with your mom as a subject, then obviously, don't do it. if there is an artistic statement that both of you would like to make, then go for it.

Dear Mom,

I know a guy/girl who does exactly what you're looking for. I'll even split the cost with you. Please don't ever ask me that again. And don't borrow my underwear!

Love you, etc.

There is a art nude photog on here who did his first nude shoot with mom, when he was a teenager. I had a hard time digesting that one.

I actually see this could be done for right reasons, (1.) is Mom a model, seriously interested in modeling,or just would like some new pics to make her feel better as a middle age lady ? (2.) Do it in a PROFESSIONAL manner !, forget the fact she is Mom, and treat her as any other client, and ask her to treat you as the same, and keep it on that level !, (3.) make some great images smile
I'm sure I could say more and go into details, but keeping this plain & simple !

Yes. This. tongue Like I said, I'll go with some plain ol' portraiture if she still wants to contribute site material for me.

Is she bringing a chaperone? Is she likely to post in the model's forum about how her first sexy photoshoot and the Photographer came onto her?

I would consider it awkward to do a nude shoot with anyone who I had come to know other than as a model.

You are a professional and according to your protfolio:
""I like fruit, fabric, cheap desserts and the human form. Photography is a hobby that has slowly taken over my life. TFCD is my best friend.

I'll absolutely climb onto rocks and into trees, balance precariously on railings, wade chest-deep into water, and flop down into mud and sand to get that perfect shot. I'm passionate about what I do and am not afraid to get dirty doing it.

I treat every person I photograph with the utmost respect and always have a professional, positive attitude.

If you're local, drop me a line - I would love to shoot.""

Be professional, do a very good job and treat her as a client. Have her review your work. you are a female working with a female. How would you treat someone the same age that asked for you to take pictures of them.

People are sensuous beings. Even YOUR mom believe it or not.  Treat her like any other client.  Being that you are yourself a female will take more of the ewwww factor out of the equation.

Show us the results if at all possible if you decide to take on this challenge.

Woman can do that because its just diffrent but a guy can not or should not take nude pics of his mom!!!! Thats just all bad!! Woman can ask each other personal questions in the locker room about their body & parts but thats a No, No for men!! So This is just my opinion. Do what you do but I wouldn't!!!!!!!!!!
