Milk bath maternity photos are a beautiful way to to celebrate your pregnancy. The milk in the bath water gives a sense of purity and extravagance. And the fresh cut flowers floating and contrasting in the water bring a lovely and pretty texture. These photos have an ethereal quality which evokes joy and happiness and only enhances the beauty that is you.
There is history of women using milk baths to care for their skin. It was a luxury enjoyed by famous women like Cleopatra. In general, all women deserve to be pampered and no excuses are needed. This is especially true when you’re pregnant. Enjoying a milk bath is well deserved because you have surrendered your body to grow a baby. Your body is working hard and allowing yourself some ‘me time” is needed more than before.
The set up for milk bath maternity photos gives mama-to-be to a chance to leave her worries behind for a little while. She is invited to be present for a warm bath where she can relax with beautiful flowers surrounding here. The space is made even more comfortable with essential oils filling the air with a soothing scent and soft music creating a tranquil space. I love how the water in a milk bath emphasizes and shapes the body in a soft and pretty way.
I encourage women to celebrate their pregnancies for so many reasons. It is temporary time which will be over before you know it. Your body is in a shape it has not been in before. Being pregnant is a miracle because the body somehow knows what to do without being told.
These photos are a wonderful way to capture the memory of you in a very special time in your life.
