One of the most nurturing things that a mama will provide for her baby is her own milk. A mother’s milk nourishes, strengthens, and protects, and it creates a way for mama to bond with her baby. You can capture this symbolically before your baby arrives with a maternity milk bath session. What better way to tell the story of the beautiful interaction that you’ll soon be having with your new baby?
Maternity milk bath session -A trendy celebration of motherhood
Have you ever seen photos of a milk bath? Maybe you’ve seen pictures of a baby taking a milk bath, and you’ve admired the celebration of innocence in that adorable image. But did you know that a maternity milk bath photoshoot is actually a rising trend in maternity sessions?
Think about it: A mother gives life to her baby, and even after her baby is born, she will continue to give life with her milk. A maternity milk bath session will capture this concept symbolically and artistically. Surrounded by the life that Mama gives, the baby is safe, secure, and loved.
People actually do take milk baths as part of their skin care regimen. They find these relaxing baths to be beneficial and healthy. How appropriate it is, then, for an expectant mother to do a maternity milk bath photoshoot!
When you do your maternity milk bath session with us, we’ll capture this unique season of you and your baby’s life together. Your in-studio maternity session will create a special memory in which you’ll be able to commemorate this time when your child depended on you completely for his or her health, nourishment, and life.
You will look gorgeous, Mama, while you’re wearing a couture maternity gown and indulging in a milk bath. When your friends and family see the pictures of your maternity milk bath photoshoot, they will absolutely love how beautiful you look. They’ll notice how clever it was to capture the beauty of your pregnancy with a milk bath!
And after your new little bundle of joy is born and gets a little older, he or she will see how beautiful you looked while you were carrying, protecting, and nurturing him or her!
As a Dallas maternity photographer, I (Stephany) can work with you to create a maternity milk bath session that’s designed exclusively for you. Read on to find out more!
What needs to happen before your maternity milk bath photoshoot?
The first step in this process is to have a design consultation with our studio. We’ll get to know you and find out what makes you YOU! What kind of personality do you have? What are your hobbies? What are your interests and your passions? What are your tastes, your likes, or your dislikes? What is your family like?
The more that we learn about you, the more that we’ll be able to customize your maternity session so that it will be unique to you from start to finish. Most of the time, we’ll combine your maternity milk bath photoshoot as part of your maternity session, and we’ll shoot your milk bath toward the end of your in-studio maternity session. (Keep in mind that we only do maternity milk bath photoshoots indoors, not outdoors.) We can figure out all of those details during your design consultation. When you’re ready to schedule your consultation, click here!
Our studio in Hickory Creek, Texas, which serves the Dallas/Forth Worth area, will be the location of your maternity milk bath session. That’s where the magic will happen. If you’d like to see a quick video tour of our studio, check it out here!
After we meet with you and gather ideas, we’ll also need to provide you with a maternity gown for your maternity session. You’ll be able to choose from our couture collection of more than 100 designer handmade maternity gowns, and we can help you select a gown that will be just right for your skin tone and your individual style. (Keep in mind that you’ll be wearing the gown in the tub during your maternity milk bath session.) Click here to browse through our collection!
We hope you can see how important a design consultation is to the success of your fine art in-studio maternity photography session. Every one of our maternity milk bath sessions is customized, which means that your photoshoot will capture the essence of YOU and your beautiful pregnancy. The more we get to know you, the better prepared we’ll be during your photoshoot. And the better prepared we are, the more gorgeous your photos will turn out!
What should you expect during your maternity milk bath session?
During your maternity milk bath photoshoot, we’ll take care of everything for you. We’re experts in fine art in-studio maternity photography sessions, so you won’t have to worry about a thing!
That being said, here are some practical details that we’d like for you to know.
1. Milk baths are safe for you and that precious baby that you’re carrying.
As we mentioned earlier, taking a milk bath is a trend that many people have been enjoying lately, so it is a safe process that we’ll monitor for you as you’re carrying your precious little one. We make sure that everything in our studio is clean, safe, and ready to capture your memories.
Safety is our top priority, so you can count on us to take extra good care of you during your maternity milk bath session.
2. Your maternity milk bath session will be simple, elegant, and completely customized.
To create your bath, we’ll just use a mixture of water and milk. That’s it! And then we’ll decorate the bath liquid with flowers, flower petals, fruits, or colored bath bombs. Whichever combination of these bath additives will work best with the look of your in-studio maternity session is the one that we’ll use!
Imagine yourself at your maternity milk bath photoshoot surrounded by rose petals and orange slices. Or what about daisies and strawberries? Or sunflowers and blueberries? Or roses and lemon slices?
Or how about you with a white lace gown in a pink bath bomb? Or a blue gown in a red bath bomb? We’ll match you with colors that will work best with your hair, your skin tone, and the overall look of your in-studio maternity session. We’ll design the milk bath that’s just right for you!
If you would like an idea of the type of photos that we can create for you during your maternity session, check out our maternity portfolio page here. Feel free to look through all of our previous work and get your creative juices flowing for your session!
3. Your maternity milk bath session is an optional part of your fine art in-studio maternity photography session.
Each in-studio maternity session that we offer will be tailored to your pregnancy journey specifically. We want to use your time in our studio to tell your story! Everything in your maternity session—from the different poses that we’ll put you in to the color of the gown that you’ll wear—is meant to showcase YOU and your beautiful pregnancy.
Your milk bath can be a part of that. As we’ve mentioned earlier, it’s a safe, creative way to express the way in which you are your child’s greatest nurturer during this special time. Whether you’re a new Mama or whether you’re carrying your second, third, or fourth child, a milk bath is a fabulous and trendy photography idea.
A maternity milk bath session definitely doesn’t have to be a part of your maternity shoot, but it would be such a wonderful part of your package. To chat more with us about his option, contact us here!
4. Your bath will happen toward the end of your in-studio maternity session.
Naturally, this will enable you to clean up and dry off before you return our gown, go home, and wait for us to prepare your final product!

A final word
Remember, you’ll only be carrying this baby once, and you’ll only have a short time to capture this unique season in your life during a maternity session. When your new little bundle of joy arrives, you’ll of course be very busy with feedings, changings, and getting to know your little child’s new schedule for you. Your entire family will be adjusting to your new little arrival, and life as you currently know it will change dramatically.
Right now—before your baby comes—is the time to do something special for YOU. You owe it to yourself to be pampered during an in-studio maternity session! Now is a great time for you to enjoy something luxurious like a milk bath.
