The Glamorous Advanced Style Ladies/Women

Today I read a review of Advanced Style on the Pilgrim’s Moon blog. In her review, The blog’s author Tess Giles Marshall, disapproves of my use of the word “ladies”. A little constructive criticism never hurt anyone, so I wanted to bring the debate forward. What’s the best way to refer to the women that I feature? I try and listen to how the people I photograph refer to themselves.I was once criticized for using the term “Ari’s Girls” even though I was quoting someone that I had just photographed. I want to be respectful as possible, but can’t please everyone. Where do you “guys” stand?
