Back towards the end of last year I had the pleasure of photographing Delilah’s milk bath session. It was my first ever milk bath experience and I must say I absolutely loved it! From start to finish, this little girl was an absolute star! She has such a huge personality and this definitely showed during her session. Delilah’s mummy was so patient with me. As this was my first session of this type I wanted to take my time to get it right and make it a successful learning experience and both Delilah and her mummy were amazing. Delilah’s mummy supplied the wonderful props and she also made the halo that Delilah is wearing in some of the photos! How talented is she?! Below you will see some of the images from the session. It was a lot of fun and hopefully one of many more!
At the start of the session, we began with some portraits whilst Delilah was in the bath, just to make sure she was safe and happy before really going for it. Mum was right by Delilah at all times. The safety of all babies and children are paramount at any of my sessions. Little Delilah enjoyed exploring the plastic fruit during her session. Having something for her to play with during the session really did help keep her occupied and happy.
The session tired Delilah out and as I was packing away, she began to fall asleep as her mother was getting her dressed. This session was such a success. Not only did I learn a lot, but Delilah had fun and her mum recieved some lovely photos that she can treasure forever! That’s all I ask for as a photographer, that my clients love their photos so much they cherish them forever. I absolutely love capturing emotion, especially in babies and younger children. They do have the best facial expressions!
I really can’t wait to do more of these sessions in the future!
