This vibrant and fun space is a dream come true if you are looking to flaunt your femininity in your photoshoot! The bright white tub contrasts beautifully with the fun pink wall, completed by a “live colorfully” neon sign.

Enjoy the other fun neon signs in this Peerspace venue, too, like the “never stop dreaming” sign above the bed and the repeating “be kind to yourself” signs in the living room area. Between the positive signage and the mix of colors and textures, you’ll create photos that pop with vibrancy here.

This is a much-loved Peerspace venue with more than 1,100 happy reviews! Like this one, from a photographer: “We had a wonderful time! The studio was so dreamy and my girls loved it! Everything was neat and clean. Communication with Debbie was great! She always responded swiftly and is very friendly in her responses.”

Got milk? Not to drink though — throw it in the bathtub for a gorgeous milk bath! We love the sensual vibes of milk bath shoots, and it would pair just perfectly with a stylish bohemian bathroom like this one. It features gorgeous tile flooring, a chic white tub, and boho wall hangings to adorn your pics. Just make sure you talk to the Peerspace host about your plans to fill this tub before your shoot!

According to one content creator who took photos here: “Beautiful space and so much to shoot in a oversized bathroom! Literally you can shoot 5-6 different looks and really make use of this smaller but amazingly styled space. Great natural light. There is an additional room you can add on if you have a lot of things with you (lights/wardrobe etc)”

3. Lounge in a gorgeous green garden

If you are looking for natural bathtub photoshoot ideas, find an outdoor tub space that’s in bloom! This Albany, CA venue offers gorgeous clover/yellow oxalis blooms from January through early April, but you can book any time of year and enjoy this space’s lovely bed of succulents and little palms. We also love that this Peerspace host offers a clean robe and towel with your shoot and you can even add on a fresh flower crown!

One Peerspace reviewer sums up her experience here well: “I had the most beautiful experience during my photo shoot using the vintage bathtub. Leslie was such gracious and kind host. She had everything set up for us and more. The detail in the yard is impeccable and there’s a lot to capture especially for photoshoots. I would book this space again and again and again!”

Mix the steamy vibes of a shower scene with the romantic elements of a bathtub session in your bathtub photoshoot! The Blackout Rain Room studio in Astoria, NYC offers RGB lights, a fun and modern black bathtub, and sleek black walls.

You’ll also be able to try out four different rain patterns during your shoot and you are welcome to use their other equipment on the stage — like the light modifiers and reflectors. This Peerspace venue books up fast though, so book it sooner rather than later.

According to a Peerspace reviewer who used the venue for a video shoot: “Great experience. The staff was friendly and helpful, and it was a very comfortable and creative atmosphere to work in. Thanks!

Knowing the history of your Peerspace venue is fun but even better- – incorporating that history into your shoot! This space used to be a Chicago spice factory and we love the idea of forgoing the flowers and adding cinnamon sticks and anise stars into your tub! So go ahead — add a personal touch to this already beautiful Chicago loft space with original large wooden beams and brickwork, natural light, and large windows overlooking the river, city, and Cermak bridge.

Unsurprisingly, this venue has tons of five-star reviews. Including this one: “I was so in love with this space! Booked this for a maternity shoot and definitely got my money’s worth! Host was extremely responsive, professional and friendly! Location was easy to find. FREE Parking was available. Again, the room was a dream! I would book again! Photos came out AMAZING! Thank you for making such a stressful yet beautiful moment a breeze for me and my partner!”
