WARDROBE WEDNESDAY: PERFECT IN PEACH
When clients go wardrobe shopping for their boudoir photo shoot, I usually advise them to purchase a dark, a light and a third "casual" or "different" look to diversify the shoot.
The boudoir studio is beautifully decorated in neutral hues, and I often find as in the image above, just how gorgeous peaches/pinks photograph against the ivory backdrop. It creates a feminine, neutral palette that is soft, elegant and graceful.
It's also lovely contrast to the black or dark ensembles, which tend to be on the sultrier side. Together, these help create variation in the album story.
I recommend shades of peach or pink to warm-skin tones or dark haired women. It can look equally great on blondes, but those with cool skin undertones may risk looking washed out. Wondering what's your skin tone? Scroll down after the lingerie listings so you can find out!
