(Contains: nudity)
(Actually it was more like good-afternoon)

I was in two minds whether to show you this one (I still might take it down) it was shot for our personal series of every day scenes. Bedroom nudity is often seen as intentionally sexual, but that wasn't our purpose at all with these, waking up naked (for me at least) is one of the most natural forms of nudity, along with bathing. I think this has more innocence than direct sexuality, but it's sometimes hard for me to judge how others will see an image.

Natural light. This was shot in one of the bedrooms of the Laird's manor house (we stayed overnight in the house and a further 3 nights in their little "picnic cottage" right on the beach, which was where the image "snapshot" was taken).

I totally agree with you on this. Even though I personally think sexuality is just as natural and thus should be represented in photography, this particular image doesn't have a sexual undercurrent but rather depicts an everyday's scene. There are certain hints that may or may not lead the watcher's eyes into one direction or another, such as the lack of make-up, un-combed hair (and the comb ready at hand), an overall quaint yet classy interiour setting - they all set a more innocent tone. Heightening this tone would be you streching and yawning.
Cheers, Patrick

honestly, I agree with you on the innocent nature of waking up naked and bathing naked. it's really more going TO bed naked that I might deem in any way more sexual, but even that has it's own innocence.

I will say that out of all of your photos so far, this one is the most comforting one to me. it is peaceful. not for sexual reasons, but for the memory of how wonderful it feels to wake up with someone near you. because waking up is so natural, and for you to be at your most natural without being alone is magnificent.

I think the reason that it gives me that thought is because it is third-person view. I'm look AT you... so it's an image similar to what it looks like to see someone waking up in front of me. the sex, if any happened, would have been last night. the waking up is the beauty of just Being. and that feeling is magical.

I hope you decide not to remove it because it is a fantastic photo. You always look comfortable in front of the camera, but here you seem even more at ease. I simply can't tell if you guys staged it, I could totally believe that you were actually really just waking up and as you sat up in bed, you realized your husband was sitting there with the camera and you weren't expecting it. This photo has this amazing quality to it, this natural, everyday life feel to it and that makes it very special. And wow, my dear Muse, you do not smile often in your photos, but when you do, you make this admiror's heart melt. Thank you for sharing this.

I actually dream of waking up next to someone as gorgeous as this picture is when I am married and having this exact moment, where I bring her a cup of tea, she stretches to wake up her muscles, and we sit on the edge of the bed drinking tea talking about our dreams.

Awww, you're so cute without makeup in the morning. I sense some women letting their claws out. LOL
As for the sexual concern, for me, I'm thinking the morning cuddling more than the morning romp. So, I think you succeeded, at least with me.

Don't take it down.  It is a great shot.  It doesn't read as something overly sexual.  Just very beautiful and natural.

A beautiful image--both the composition and the lighting and exposure. But most of all I just love the spontineity and warmth of the shot. I really just looks like a candid photo. Hard to see how anyone could take the photo any other way.
