Milk Bath Photoshoot Oxford

After several phone conversations to discuss and plan the perfect maternity photography session, Fabiana decided that she would like us to be do her Maternity Photoshoot. Fabi had decided that she wanted something a little different from her Pregnancy Portraits and she knew that we would create the most amazing images of her, daddy-to-be and her bump.

We decided that this would be a good opportunity to introduce something to our portfolio that is very new in this country. It is called a milk bath. The idea itself is nothing new - the idea comes from the time of Cleopatra. She was famous, not just of being queen of Egypt, but also for being remarkably beautiful and smart. She was also well known for taking her milk baths which she often infused with honey and flowers. She was wise to do so as milk is great for your skin.

For us as photographers it is a new concept in photography which involves photographing the pregnant mother wearing a maternity gown in a bath of milk surrounded by pretty flowers. Our lights reflect off the milk giving the opportunity to create that pure, soft, dreamy look: images of a mummy-to-be dreaming to meet her new baby.

Fabi booked us for the Bump to Baby experience so we will be going back soon to photograph her, Alan and new baby Gabriel. We also plan to create some before and after images by combining photos from her maternity session with those from her newborn session.


If you are expecting a little one then I would love to hear from you and hopefully become your family photographer for generations and generations.
