Susie was a singer with aspirations of being a Burlesque performer, but had some body-image issues. I'd done some headshots for her and then seen on her My Space profile, (yes, it was that long ago!), that she was really into Dita Von Tease. With some trepidation, (because, understandably, it's not everyone's thing), I emailed her to ask her if she'd like to vamp it up a bit. About 10 seconds later I got her reply, "YES, PLEASE!"
This is from the resulting session and she later wrote to me to say, "Thank you so much! I feel very happy looking at such great images of myself - it's given me added confidence. Burlesque is definitely the way forward!"
On a technical note, the trick with this pose is to get the hips up as high as possible - we used a cushion!
