Salt Lake City Milk Bath Maternity Session

I had been searching for a photographer in Salt Lake City that did milk bath photo sessions and wasn’t having any luck.  I am a true believe that if you put something out in the universe and truly want it than the universe will find a way to make it happen and guess what- the universe did not disappoint.

About a month after searching and having no luck an amazing photographer Annette from Ginormous Sky contacting me asking if I would model for her.  She had recently found a passion for milk bath sessions and wanted to build up her portfolio.  I was thrilled and quickly accepted.  Now never having met Annette I was pretty nervous- not necessarily being in a bath in front of a stranger- anyone that has given birth will understand that you become fully comfortable about certain things afterwards.  At least I did- mmmm can we talk about lactation specialists grabbing at your boobs, doctors and nurses all up in your business, a nurse helping you go to the bathroom and clean up- have I somewhat prepared you for what post delivery will be like?

Anyways… back to the subject of these gorgeous photos that Annette did- I was nervous because I didn’t know what to expect once meeting her.  Were we going to like each other, was she going to know what she was doing, was she going to be fun to be around and make me feel at ease.  Making your client feel at ease is something really important for a photographer- you want to look normal and relaxed in your photos.  Instantly meeting her I felt so comfortable- she gave me a big hug and just started talking like we had met several times before.  I am so thankful for that bubbly personality- putting my nerves at rest.  Now lets just jump into the photos and show you what an amazing job she did.  You would never know that this was a NEW passion of hers.

    1. She made sure to have the bath really warm so it wasn’t cold at all. You feel so smooth afterwards. I enjoyed it so much.

  1. These came out gorgeous! The colors you chose are gorgeous and I love how they pop against the milk bath. The one of you making a heart with your hands is my favorite!

  2. Michelle — you’re a beautiful mama! Thank you for trusting me to trial out this creative expression of motherhood. I can’t wait to meet your sweet girls one of these days soon! Annette xoxo
