What are milk bath maternity photos?
You may have seen maternity photos online of pregnant women in milk baths. We do these sessions outdoors in Snohomish or indoors in Bothell. Check out our photos in the maternity gallery! These striking images are taking the maternity photography world by storm—and with good reason! They’re unique and artistic, capturing a new mom-to-be in all her beauty as she anticipates the arrival of her baby into the world.
Milk bath photography involves placing a pregnant woman in a bathtub full of milk, surrounding her with flowers, herbs or other plants. The combination of the white of the milk and the color of the florals creates stunning imagery and shows the expecting mother in all her glory. While it’s unknown where exactly the idea of milk bath photography first originated, the idea of bathing in milk goes back to ancient times and was thought to help a woman enhance and maintain her youthful glow.
These unique and beautiful images go beyond the traditional maternity photos, providing moms-to-be with a truly incredible experience and images that they’re sure to love.
Is milk bath photography safe?
There are definitely some things to take into consideration if you want to take milk bath maternity photos, so it’s best to book a session with an experienced photographer who knows how to plan these sessions for the safety of the woman and her developing baby.
We generally use milk powder. And if you’re lactose intolerant, sorry, but these sessions just aren’t for you! You don’t want to have an allergic reaction. Clear water is a beautiful alternative.
If you do decide to book a milk bath maternity session, be sure to talk in detail with your photography about any allergies or skin sensitivities you may have so they can plan accordingly.
Are milk baths good for you?
Milk is actually used in a lot of skin treatments and beauty products because of its positive effects on the skin. The lactic acid in milk can even help you skin feel smoother. Just be sure to rinse off fully afterward!
What should I wear for a milk bath session?
There are a variety of outfits you can choose to get that elegant look, from a lace gown to lingerie and even a bathing suit. You’ll want to choose an outfit made of a thin or sheer material as these materials photograph best in milk. Talk to your photographer about what outfits they recommend and use your upcoming session as an excuse to go shopping!
