Milk Bath | Rachel | Hampton, Virginia

Milk bath. It’s a new photography trend a lot of mommy to-be’s are interested in trying. I hadn’t really thought about photographing this type of session, but when Rachel reached out to me, I thought I would give it a try. I have to say, I’m pretty happy with the results. Here are a few of my favorite images, and then some do’s and dont’s I gathered for my next milk bath!


  • Use liquid milk (not the powdered milk). One gallon of whole milk worked great.
  • Fresh flowers! They floated beautifully, and they smelt wonderful.
  • Wear a lace gown <3



  • Do not wear under garments that easily show they are wet. It helps a lot in post processing if I don’t have to edit out wet spots.
  • Do not get into the tub after the flowers. The mama may cause the flowers to sink.
  • Do not use hot water. It may curdle the milk. Use lukewarm, so that the mama isn’t boiling, but isn’t cold either.
