Destroy the photos and be done with it. I've had this happen once. I had signed release with witness, ID, etc. The model got married, and wanted the photos not to be published anymore. So I removed them all from my portfolio. I had a release, but life is too short to always be involved in some sort of hassle with someone. What is her side of the story by the way? Why does she say she doesn't want the photos out there?
RFS, while I do hold your opinion in high regard, there are some really stupid models out there. You may remember my implied shoot back a few months, and of course, got a signed release by both of us, and as part of that release, both of us could use them for self promotion, spelled out in black and white ink, and signed. Well, I posted a few of them on another site which also allows adult photographs (ones you need to be 18+ to view) and I had them marked as adult themed, but anyhow, a friend of hers saw them, and so she gave me a very irate phone call about having them up on that site. Mind you, I sent her several text messages, phone calls and sent a few messages via myspace, none of which were responded too and I allowed her a week to respond. I tell this story to illustrate that even when you have a signed release stating that you may use them for any legal purpose includeing self promotion, they don't always read the release and don't comprehend the english language very well, even though they are educated and so called professional models.
