Milk Bath's have been growing in popularity over the last few year, not only for maternity portraits, but can also be used with babies and even newborns, they can also include mum and baby in the bath together with baby on mums lap facing her.
I also keep hearing that there is also the health benefit for your skin, it leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, The milk also helps exfoliate the skin by removing the dead skin cells
Iv always admired the photographers that shoot Milk Bath Photography, so Yesterday i sent Tim down to get some milk powder so that i myself could have a wee experiment and photograph our Daughter in it, I just love the bright and creamy look to these types of images.
Since its Winter there wasn't may flowers out and the leaves had fallen from my trees so i was trying to think what i could use, i had read that artificial flowers just sink to the bottom of the bath, so that wasn't going to work, so i went hunting in the garden, i came across one of my hydrangeas still had a few nice heads on it, so i picked it. as i walked back up the path i thought now that would make a good Kiwi photo using the Punga tree leaves that grows out side our front door.
Katelyn didn't really like the Bath and cried at first, but after bit she came right.
i managed to get her crying to look like she's smiling.
I hope you love these images as much as i do :)
