We love to match the bed to your boudoir look! This Bella brought her teal wedding shoes and wore this gorgeous light pink bodysuit. Combine these colors and match for her hair, eyes, and skin, and wow! This photo was taken with our above-the-bed camera to show how everything came together. It’s all about coordinating the colors to take your boudoir photos to the next level… something that just plain white sheets can’t do.
Happy Wednesday! Details like jewelry as so important. Don’t forget to bring your ring(s), necklace, or other jewelry that your significant other gave you. It’s the perfect to your session to make it even more personal. If you forget to bring any jewelry, don’t worry. We have plenty of gorgeous necklaces and a few bracelets from the mellBella Closet to add to your look. Go with a classic long strand pearls for one outfit then change it up to glam with an extra sparkly statement necklace.
This One Image Wednesday, we talking about the man’s shirt as a prop. Every man has that favorite shirt, the shirt that matches his eyes perfectly, or that special shirt you got him. So, why not wear it as part of your boudoir photography session? Be sure to pair it with a pop of color bra and panty set or just forgo the bra entirely. We know the shirts are not made for women. But we have some clips we use, so you still have your curves and not disappear entirely under the shirt. The only problem is… how to sneak it out without him knowing? Just tell him it’s dirty. 😉
It’s time for One Image Wednesday again at mellBella. Let’s talk fake eye lashes. They are a great way to emphasize your eyes and complete your look. Make sure to bring a pair with you for your session, or you can purchase a set from our stylist. Fake eyelashes take your look from Va- Va to Vava Voom! You can choose from a natural look or go bigger and bolder. We like the Ardell brand that you can pick up at any store like Target, CVS, Walgreens, etc. Bring on the luscious lashes!13
This Wednesday, we are talking about pinup photography. It’s flirty and fun photography with a retro twist. Imagine yourself in the glamorous hair, makeup, and clothing styles from the 40s, 50s, or 60s. Or you can pick another time period, if you like. Your transformation starts with hair and makeup styling, then add some pearls, some vintage props, and imagination to take you back in time and around the world. At mellBella, we spend some extra time and magic to transport you to the wild, wild west, across the pond, or who knows? We even have a selection of outfits and accessories that you can borrow from the mellBella Closet as part of your session. Of course, you will want to bring at least 2 outfits or more or even you’re whole closet. We’ll help you pick the best looks for your pinup journey. So whether you want to be Marilyn Monroe or Bettie Page, we have lots of ideas for you. Where do you want to go?
This One Image Wednesday, we would like to remind you to smile. Many ladies worry about making the “sexy face” for their mellBella boudoir photo session. You know what IS sexy? You! We want to photograph a variety of expressions to celebrate you. So rock the nose crinkle, smile, and laugh. You’ll love the photos because you not only had fun, but you actually look like you had fun too. We know you’ll be nervous, but Wanda and Mell Bell are great at telling jokes or being silly to keep you smiling. Smiling is sexy.
When thinking about what to wear for your boudoir session, accessories are a great way to change up your look from the typical bra and panty sets. This Bella rocked our rhinestone mask with our black tulle skirt. Both are available in our mellBella Closet for you to use during your session with us. She brought this fabulous lace top and black peep toes to complete her look. We decided against a necklace for this look because we really wanted the mask to stand alone. Bring your fav accessory with you, and let’s create something amazing.
One Image Wednesday is all about Bridal Boudoir Photography.
What is it? Several of our Bellas are creating the Best. Groom’s. Gift Ever. to surprise their man as a wedding gift! Bridal boudoir is where you incorporate some wedding elements in your photo shoot. Think veil, white lingerie, your wedding shoes, and all things labeled MRS. or Bride.
Welcome back to One Image Wednesday!
This image is the last photo we took of this Bella’s boudoir session. We told her to think of a happy thought before we started her session… someone, some food, some place, or something that would make her smile if she started to get tense during her mellBella boudoir photography shoot. She trusted us even though she was nervous, and she left with this smile on her face. Happy Thought indeed!
