Milk Bath Maternity Photos
One of the things I love about my job is the fact that the relationship with my clients doesn’t just end at the wedding. We don’t just say so long, and never see each other again. Many times, my clients and I continue to be friends on Facebook; so I get to hear about their adventures in marriage, their new homes, and my favorite – when they have their first (or second) child. It’s always such an honor for me when my clients contact me years later telling me they wouldn’t consider anyone else to capture yet another important moment in their lives. I love that I get to re-connect in a completely different, and special way with them.
Katie and Eric, now in Jersey City, NJ, showed me around their neighborhood including the rustic little nooks, and the quaint little park across the street. Here’s where I fell in love, though: the rustic vintage-looking bathtub in their apartment had the most beautiful natural light pouring into it. I knew immediately that this is where the bulk of our session would take place as it’s a dreamland for a photographer to walk into! We had also planned to experiment with something I had always been wanting to try – milk bath maternity photos. We researched in advance how to do this, and the best part – we experimented and had fun with it because that’s how great photos come about, by just being able to let go of expectations and play. This was our outcome… scroll all the way to the bottom of the post for the end result of our milk bath maternity experiment and photos..
