What is a Maternity Milk Bath Photography session?
If you are looking for something different for your maternity photographs why not consider a maternity milk bath session? Run a lovely warm bath of water in your own home with some added fresh milk. Place some of your favourite flowers in the water and volia! That is a maternity milk bath session.
The photographer uses clever angles and soft lighting to create the most dreamy maternity photos.
The beautiful lace gown is the photographer’s own and is available for all mums to be. The gown is easily adjusted to fit all sized women by gathering at the back.
It may feel a little strange wearing a lace gown in the bath- but it is so flattering and the textures and colours look stunning.
You may also choose to have nude images, the milky water covers parts of your body to help you remain discreet. The main focus is on your bump and wonderful curves of your amazing pregnant body.
Will my bathroom be light enough? It is very small.
Most bathrooms in the Uk are teeny and you will be amazed what stunning imagery can be achieved. The light in bathrooms is nearly always enough with just natural light. The milk in the bath helps to reflect light to create dreamy white tones. So the answer is, any bathroom is good enough for a milk bath session.
Alternatively some many have hired beautiful hotel rooms for a night and turned the occasion into a special babymoon. The photographer can advise with your hotel booking if needed.
Which flowers work the best?
I prefer to use real flowers over artificial. Artificial flowers sink and well quite honestly they don’t have a beautiful smell. I think the best part is selecting flowers that you love and are very special to you. For example- You could use the same flowers that you had on your wedding day. The only thing I would recommend is to stick to no more than 3 different colours for your colour palette.
Milk Bath photography with your Baby
Why not extend your milk bath to include your baby?
Babies from newborn to 6 months is recommended. After then they get too wriggly and splash you! As soon as they are able to sit unaided they are ready for their own milk bath alone.
