It has been said that Cleopatra, the last Queen of Egypt, bathed in milk three times a day. Quite the romantic image, isn’t it? Speaking of romantic images, I’m excited to debut the milk bath maternity portrait as a new option for my clients. Personally, I can’t think of a better way to combine the beauty of maternity with fine art portraiture. It’s a luxurious experience for my clients and joy for me to photograph.
Ancient, Romantic, Timeless
Milk is a symbol of fertility and prosperity in cultures worldwide. In Hindu traditions, Lord Vishnu lies eternally with his lover, Lakshmi, in a sea of milk. The Egyptian Goddess Isis was worshipped as the Divine Mother. In ancient art, Isis is portrayed nursing a young pharaoh with magic, life-giving milk, bestowing wisdom and authority. While in Greek mythology, the Milky Way was created when Saturn’s wife nursed her children. In fact, the English word galaxy is derived from the Greek word for milk. Milk is a powerful symbol of the journey to motherhood. Its myths and meaning intertwined with birth and life.
A Luxurious Photoshoot Experience
If you’ve considered going outside the box with your photos, a milk bath maternity portrait session is a great idea. Want to try nude or semi-nude poses? A milk bath maternity portrait session is guaranteed to create jaw-dropping images. Customize your portrait styling with floral accents, luxury fabrics or even glitter or vibrant paint to create a dynamic, colorful look. The milk bath photo concept is fantastic to continue after your baby’s birth to create a series of beautiful portraits of mother and child.
