I have a shoot coming this weekend, the model has requested a valentine candy shot, I know I've seen a million times. I need to find a guide for referrence - can anyone help?  It is simply candies places covering her crotch and breasts.  She is a bit nervous and I'd like to show her what a finished shot "should" look like!!

you really should discuss this with her.  it is possible she just wants pics of her fully clothed with a bowl of skittles on a table in front of her.  or nude with one skittle on each nipple.  or something in between.
communication could be critical here.

Ask her to send you sample images.

Just beware, most are done in a cheesy/lame manner.
