+sexy white lace bra/bralette & either white or nude thong for under your dress

+ bandeau bra or bikini top if you want to do faux topless images

+ Water shoes. This makes it easier for you to move around.

+ A sense of adventure! This isn't your typical portrait shoot! It's truly an adventure :)

The Styles

Long White Flowing Dress.

Super easy to find since it's summer and it's festival season. You can find them at Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Forever 21, Free People, Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom Rack, Target, Ross & more. You can also go for a cream, off white or blush color.

You can go sheer or get a more solid dress, it's totally up to your comfort level. you can always wear a bodycon slip, white lingerie or a swimsuit underneath or just go nude underneath the dress


Maybe you're a bit more funky than a timeless white dress, that's cool! You can also get a solid colored long flowing dress. Just avoid patterned dresses. These are super simple black and white images and patterns make it look busy.


Want a more sensual river women series portrait? Opt for a sheer dress and wear nothing underneath. Look for beach coverups, slips & bridal lingerie.


It's festival season, so if your style is boho chic you can definitely wear it during your River Women Series Session. You can also go for a more modern gypsy boho vibe. Lots of crochet, lace, layered looks.


Get super sexy with your River Women Session! You can be more daring & wear lingerie or a sexy crochet bikini for your session.


Makeup & Hair

If you choose to do your own makeup, keep it natural. earthy tones, maybe rose gold or gold depending on your skin color. You can do a neutral smoky eye if you really want. If you want to do the moodier River Women Series style you can get a little bolder.

As for hair, as much as I want it to look amazing I also want you to understand that I will have you head dunked in the water. Loose, beachy waves work best. You can also add a small braid or even do a braid crown. Totally up to you!

Tips & Tricks

+ Want to appear topless in the water? Wear a bandeau bikini or bra so your shoulders are bare.

+ There is no reason to pay to have your hair styled unless you really want it done professionally because I will have you laying in the water by the end of the session, which will totally ruin your gorgeous styled hair!

+ You can opt to have your makeup professionally done, do it yourself or go bare faced. Totally up to you!

+ You can style your dress however you'd like. Many choose to go nude underneath. You can wear a pretty lace bra & panty set, a slip or go nude.

+ Want a more sensual River Women session? Opt for a sheer or lace dress & go nude underneath

+ Add a flower crown or a boho headpiece for added interest. You can find them at Forever 21 or make them yourself!
