...I just pitch 'um out when they go over the hill. It is true that I'm currently working with a model who is almost seventeen years old, but she's so exceptional I've been willing to ignore her advanced years.
This model is a little older than 17, but she's so beautiful even I couldn't screw this up!
In truth, any good photographer should be able to help you out, just make sure they have a good team around them (makeup, hair, styling) and have appropriate lighting equipment. These things will also help your wife feel more comfortable about any photo shoot. While it is true I have my own preferences, like most professionals if there are enough zeros to the left of the decimal point you will be stunned at how enthusiastic we can be about almost any project!
