Bridget's favorite color is yellow, so Melissa Mullins decided to go for a bright yellow color in her signature milk bath, and paired it with lots of fun neon colors, props, and clothes.

Sometime at the end of last year I got an idea stuck in my head. I wrote on my bio that I believe all women have their own unique superpower. I wanted to be able to show and celebrate that through my portraits and I knew exactly where to start. My favorite lady superheros – the sailor scouts! -Melissa Mullins

"The entire experience was amazing, and something I will remember forever. I normally hate being in front of the camera but Melissa made me feel comfortable and beautiful through the entire session. And to top it off I had so much fun! I absolutely love my photos and will treasure them always. Thank you, Thank you!" – Kelly

"Shooting with Melissa has been an incredible experience. I used to do modeling when I was younger and lived in LA. I was very thin my whole life. I had some pretty serious health problem and a surgery a few years ago. Because of this I gained some weight due too medications, injuries and not being allowed to exercise. I've had a pretty hard time embracing my new body. I really thought I would never want to get in front of a camera again. Melissa has changed all of that… I would highly encourage anyone who thinks they can't "model" to do a session with her. She will help you love yourself a little bit more which is something we could all use.

It is also unbelievably fun to play in a milk bath!" – Marisa

Melissa says, this session might her her favorite session. And if you're a Harry Potter or Doctor Who fan, it might be yours as well!

No seriously, look at how much fun would it looks like to play in a sexy milk bath…

If you want to have your own sexy, quirky, geeky, colorful fun with your own milk bath boudoir session (or underwater session), get in contact with Melissa Mullins ASAP! Because I have a feeling that her shooting schedule is going to get about as full as a tub full of colorful water with a smoking hot babe inside of it.

Just make sure one of those smoking hot babes is YOU!

  1. These look awesome! Definitely not my thing (not a body image thing, just that wet clothes are really, really unpleasant for me), but the photos are beautiful – and the women look so cool. I especially like the one with the light green bath and the turquoise necklace.

  2. These pictures are great provided people like it. I'm too old to try these kinds of things, but ok. I like the first pircture, the women is beautiful and sexy. White milky background can add more value to the picture as it can make a perfect make-up face and colorful flower headband outstanding.
