Photographing a milk bath maternity session was a brand new experience that allowed me to stretch creatively and technically. I am HERE FOR IT!
When my friend suggested doing some “milk bath photos” during her maternity session, not going to lie. I had to look up what that was! It took some research and preparation but I am obsessed with how they turned out! It was a good reminder not to be afraid to try new creative concepts or shoots! Also, it is SO important to go the extra mile for clients. I especially feel this for maternity clients. They have such a special place in my heart. Pregnancy can be a time where it is sometimes not too easy to love the way your body is changing. Maternity photos are the perfect way to honor the literal and beautiful miracle that pregnancy is!
The bathroom we were shooting in only had one small window as a light source. So, I did break out my on camera flash and bounced the light off the ceiling. This helped create a soft, even light on the subject. Towards the end of the session I thought “what the heck”, ditched my flash and cranked my ISO just to see if I liked how they look.
All in all, I can honestly say that I cannot wait to do another milk bath maternity session!
