What is a Milk Bath and where do I get one in Dallas?

I get this question all the time. When I go to buy flowers and all that milk ahead of my photography session, I get a lot of questions. What is all that milk for? Why do you have so many flowers? Flowers and milk – that’s a strange combination. (I know that last one was a statement, not a question). Imagine standing in line at the supermarket with 4 gallons of milk and 6 bunches of flowers. That raises some eyebrows, believe me. But milk baths are worth it. Not only do they produce gorgeous pictures, but they also are known to soften the skin. Typically milk baths are done for maternity pictures, but they can also be done for newborns and babies.

Where do you do a milk bath?

Until recently I set up milk baths in my studio. They will always be available there but I am happy to say I have started a new relationship with Origins Birth Dallas. We will now be offering milk baths regularly in their birthing suites. And can I just say, “wow!” These tubs and suites are gorgeous. Not only will we be able to do the milk bath, but we will also be able to use the amazingly well decorated suite for lifestyle maternity posing and family sessions.

  1. These images are stunning! I’ve always wanted to try to photograph a milk bath session. How lucky you are to have a special space just for these sessions. Totally worth all of the strange looks you get at the grocery store!

  2. I have been looking for a baby photographer in Dallas for a while now. I am so glad I came across your page. These milk bath sessions are gorgeous, I might have to take you up on this offer.
