Behind the Scenes - Retro Baja Spring Summer '17
Posted on 06 March 2017
Ever wanted to tag along on one of our photoshoots? Well now you can. We are happy to share some behind the scenes shots from our 2017 photoshoots in the Dominican Republic, and don't worry, this ain't no Sports Illustrated hyper- sexualization bullshit. We have a thing for natural beauty here at Bikini Empire, and most of our models wear little to no makeup. Not because we have anything against makeup, but if our models feel confident and sexy without a lot of paint, then who are we to tell them otherwise?
We remember our first photoshoot with Monica like it was yesterday. This little cutie has grown up so much, and we absolutely adore the fine lady she is becoming. A talented surfer and jewelry designer, this spicy little papaya is also incredibly chill and inspiring to work with. Always full of good ideas to contribute to a shoot like 'how about I wear these cute little runners with the Body Suit
?' Yes please!
The only thing better than one Venezuelan model that we met accidentally at the gym is when she also has a sister..... so two Venezuelan super babes to shoot with! These two were the sweetest, funniest, loveliest duo that we felt absolutely over the moon to get to shoot with them. Pictured here at a tacky old condo with some stunning light.
Living in the DR means hanging out with super badass babes like this. Pam Diaz
is one of the Caribbean's best chick long boarders, a close friend, and all around awesome human being. Paula is an awesome surfer, and we managed to get some gorgeous shots of them chillin' on the road down to the beach for a surf!
We knew as soon as we spotted this curvaceous beauty that we needed to take photos of her. We found a gorgeous spot with palm trees and the tumultuous Atlantic in the back and the rest...? Well, it was pure magic. Check out more Nina photos!
