This was Valerie's first nude shoot. She is a friend of mine from High School that traveled a great distance to come see me and shoot with me. I LOVE this image!!!

Thank you for this, and thank you Lady Red. Due to medical issues I'm about the same size as the model and have always felt extremely ugly for it. But this photo has made it so my brain now tells me I am not ugly. I just now have to work on feeling it.
The first time I saw this photo after our shoot my jaw hit the floor at how beautiful I looked. Perry showed me the beauty he saw I had; I spent 49 years (at that time) convinced I was ugly because of my weight. He showed me the complete opposite.
I'd have to say this is the best photo in your gallery. It's beautiful, and the model is amazing. It's great to see a model that isn't stick thin with their bones showing, as well as it's great to see a photographer who doesn't believe you have to be borderline anorexic in order to be a model. Amazing job, both to you, and the beautiful model.

Thank you for posting this and thank you to LadyRed for posing for you. I love nude art but have never felt like I had the body for it. Beautiful work like this gives me hope and courage. <3 Thanks again.

not trynna be mean, but i hate it when people call bigger people curvy. no offense, but BEYONCE is curvy, J LO is curvy, even nicki minaj is curvy, this model (dont get me wrong, she is a beautiful woman) is not curvy.
She's very brave, and beautiful Woman come in all shapes and sizes, and it's refrshing to see a woman with curves displaying her body proudly. Her skin is lovely, she has great facial features too ^_^
