I am so in love with these dreamy photos from my very first Lafayette Indiana mom and baby milk bath photography session! I have been a part of this sweet pea’s milestones since her mommy and daddy announced their pregnancy last year. Now, here we are at her 8 month milestone session. Here in Lafayette, Indiana the weather is frigid and most days are gray and sunless. We chose to do a warm and bright milk bath session to celebrate Brielle’s smile, love of bath time, and the cherished snuggly time that her mommy spends with her. As a lifestyle photographer in Lafayette, Indiana, I focus on capturing real stories full of real emotion…I think we definitely made that happen with this milk bath session. We used fresh floral bouquets and lavender to create a warm and peaceful bath in which Brielle and mommy could relax and be themselves.
Fun note: Did you know that Cleopatra was said to bathe in milk daily in ancient Egypt to keep her skin beautiful and nourished. Today, the milk bath session signifies the milk that baby needs for growth and health; especially pertaining to the hard work and dedication from a nursing mom. I personally believe that this session honors the mom that gives everything of herself for her baby, and the bond that is created during those times of feeding and nursing.
I really look forward to having more Lafayette Indiana mom and baby milk bath sessions in the future!
