One Image Wednesday

It’s our first One Image Wednesday! Each Wednesday, we will share one image and a tip for your mellBella session.

This Bella chose some comfy, semi transparent linen pants, low cut tank top, and no bra for her first boudoir look. Who says you need to wear lingerie for your whole boudoir photography session? A low cut tank is a great option to wear with or without a bra, and there’s so many great options out there. Go with a pop of color or even superhero. Be comfortable and sexy!
