  Hey, good for you! I'm about to turn 30 also and all I've survived is a divorce and I want to do the sensual photo thing too! Celebrate the GOOD in your life! Are you trying to do it yourself- pose and take the pic?? I found a local female photographer who does portraits but also 'glamor' work and I'm thinking of having her do it. Personally I want a pic like the Jennifer aniston cover of... hmm, was it GQ? Jeans, bare feet, no top, but turned so you only see the side of her, nothing graphic...

  Marisa & Denyse, congrats on everything you've been through. My mother went through gastric surgery going from 250+ to 130ish so I can imagine how you look and feel from personally seeing it myself. Where do you guys live? I'm in Fayetteville, NC and I'm new to studio work myself but if you're close enough I'd be glad to do some TFP with you guys (no money exchanged) The odds of you being close are slim to none but I just thought I'd throw it out there :-). Anyways I know of a similiar picture to the one you're describing. One of my fashion role models in photography is Dean Bertoncelj from Croatia and he has the following pic which I love and would love to someday try something like it!

NOT MY PICTURE ABOVE.

Cheers!

  Justin- YUP that's an awesome one! Exactly the look I was thinking. Too bad I'm alllll the way up in Rochester NY or I'd take you up on the offer. Thanks for the pic from Dean... I'll keep that one handy for when I'm ready to do my shoot.

  Just please recognize him, he's outstanding and I don't want anyone thinking I or you is stealing his work. And plus from his work, he truly deserves the recognition, especially in America.

  The most sensual photograph I've ever shot was one of a friend of mine. She was sitting on a bed with her back to the camera holding a sheet in front of her that wrapped around her, very low across her back.Since it was an anniversary present for her husband, and due to the high level of respect I hold for the two, I will not show it. And Justin, Mr Bertoncelj is a great photographer, I agree. I congradulate the ladies on all of their accomplishments. Have a great night and keep shooting.
