    I'm interested in why there is an age and previous recent photo criteria attached to your offer, will you be shortlisting potential applicants on how old they are and how they look?

      Most likely, which is only fair since it's free.

            The purpose of signing the model release is just so we can use your pictures for our portfolio, either on our website or print media, basically for advertising purpose. Since we are professional, we can promise you that we won't use the picture in an unethical way or selling it for profit.

              Guys, there's absolutely nothing wrong with what sparkle is offering. In fact, all credits goes to him (her?) for actually providing a model release form which some less scrupulous photographers would just not even care about.

              This is called a TFP shoot offer and it's perfectly normal.

                    Why the pregnant woman in your website need to expose the pregnancy like that ?

                    I don't understand. The beauty and happiness of being pregnant, and the togetherness with her spouse can be seen clearly with the clothes on. And its more appropriate for the condition imo.
                    Words can inspire, thoughts can provoke, but only action can get you closer to your dreams.

                      Sparkle, I have a young baby but I am unclear how this can be a financial proposition. Baby just 40 days old. Need to know more of your credibility for this exercise, an undertaking would be required guaranteeing that any pictures taken would not be used for unethical reasons. Merits further thought

                        I understand your concern, mrcibubur. That's why we provided model release to protect both parties (the photographer and the model). The model release will grant permission to the photographer to release the pictures but also restrict the use of such photos in unlawful purpose. That's from the legal side.

                        In practice, we will meet all shortlist to explain further about the session and also to get to know each other personally & professionally; if afterward there's still hesitation the candidates have rights not to go ahead with it, of course we hope that won't happen Hopefully, this may help you in making the decision.

                          Eh ..?

                          What its got to do with my question or statement about pregnant tummy being exposed ?

                          Sparkle, I mean no harm to your business. I hope you are not offended. I'm just curious and asked you simple question after browsing your website. I like photography as well and took many photos of me and my kids since they were babies. I was pregnant twice, and no way I wanted to and if I ever pregnant again would want my pregnancy being exposed without the clothes on. Especially if its for the commercial thing.

                          Its beautiful and delightful for being pregnant, but things got to be placed in a proper way.
                          Each to their own, of course.

                            Actually Alia whilst I respect your values, it is not uncommon in the West for pregnant women to be photographed naked with or without their babies.
                            Have look at the link for some idea, perhaps not to everyone's taste but a valid art form in my opinion.
