Flower Bath Photography
I don't always take a bath but when I do, I make sure to cover myself in flowers and have a photographer take professional pictures...just kidding! I recently did a flower bath photoshoot with photographer: Jacqueline Tavares of JMTV and loved how our images turned out!
We filled up the tub with bubble bath (Dr. Teal's Eucalyptus Foaming Bath always gives the best bubbles and smells ahhh-mazing!) & water. Then used several drops of neon magenta food coloring for some major mermaid vibes. We sprinkled in some magenta and yellow flower petals before I jumped in. To really let the flowers stand out, I opted for a simple, black monokini. Flowy curls and a neutral smoky eye completed the whole "mermaid" look I was trying to achieve. After I got in, we placed a few flower blossoms in the water and my hair. Then threw in a few handfuls of flower petals for a carefree vibe. For those who are looking to do a flower bath photoshoot, remember to not throw in the flowers too soon or they'll look wilted or sink to the bottom of the tub!
When we were ready, we blasted some music and started shooting! Luckily, we had decent lighting coming in through the bathroom window that day.
Jacqueline ended up in some pretty creative poses (straddling the tub, balancing on a barstool, etc.) to land the best angles. Overall, I love the color combinations we used and that there was a good mix of flirty & grunge-y shots. Cleaning up was surprisingly simple-- just drained the tub and used bleach to scrub the remaining food coloring off the side of the tub!
