Los Angeles: Demi Lovato seems keen to shed her child star image posing provocatively in a series racy of photos for snapper Tyler Shields.

The former Disney star, 19, shot a series of images featuring her seductively sucking a lollipop and smashing a mirror, reported Us magazine.

"We wanted to show that Demi is all grown up from her Disney days and is a really beautiful and powerful woman now. When I showed her the images she was really excited and could not wait for us to post them so that her fans could see a different side to her," said Shields.

Lovato, who will perform at the Iquique Festival in Chile Saturday, was so impressed with the shots that she`s now using one as her Twitter avatar.

"When you meet Demi she can be a real force of nature, and this particular image of her smashing the glass really captures that. She looks amazing and was really great to work with," Shields added.
