Milk bath. It’s a new photography trend a lot of mommy to-be’s are interested in trying. I hadn’t really thought about photographing this type of session, but when Rachel reached out to me, I thought I would give it a try. I have to say, I’m pretty happy with the results. Here are a few of my favorite images, and then some do’s and dont’s I gathered for my next milk bath!
Use liquid milk (not the powdered milk). One gallon of whole milk worked great.
Fresh flowers! They floated beautifully, and they smelt wonderful.
Wear a lace gown <3
Do not wear under garments that easily show they are wet. It helps a lot in post processing if I don’t have to edit out wet spots.
Do not get into the tub after the flowers. The mama may cause the flowers to sink.
Do not use hot water. It may curdle the milk. Use lukewarm, so that the mama isn’t boiling, but isn’t cold either.
