Latrelle’s Milk Bath Maternity Portraits | Sacramento Maternity Photographer | Folsom, Ca

I had a wonderful time capturing maternity portraits of this gorgeous mama.  We met on a hot July evening at Folsom Lake, where she wore several of my maternity gowns that I provide for every maternity session.  We did half of our session outdoors and the other half in her home.  I photographed her baby belly next to the beautiful water lit by the glowing setting sun, and she looked so beautiful.  Once we were done posing at the lake and having fun splashing in the water, we headed over to their home in Sacramento, Ca, where I put together a milk bath portrait session in the comfort and privacy of her bathroom.
I have been loving all of these milk bath maternity sessions I have been able to photograph this summer!  I love this trend.  I love the dreamy ethereal feel of milk baths, and I love the way I can capture the organic shape of the mama’s baby belly surrounded by flowers and milk.
I’m about to let you all in on a secret- that tub isn’t full of milk exactly, but just bath water mixed with some ingredients to make the water look opaque and milky.  I add flowers to the water for decoration and encourage my mamas to wear a sheer gown in the water or nothing at all, I can creatively use flowers and fabric to cover up and showcase that gorgeous baby bump.  These milk bath sessions make for absolutely gorgeous maternity portraits, and I love them so!

As a Sacramento area maternity photographer, I consider it a huge privilege to get to photograph adorable babies and baby bellies all the time.  Newborn photography is my passion.  I absolutely love babies and I consider myself truly blessed to be around these little miracles so much.  I honestly have the best job ever, and when I get to photograph gorgeous families like this one, it makes what would already have been a fun day at work a piece of cake.  This shoot was wonderful!
I love taking portraits outdoors in natural light.  The Sacramento area has so many amazing locations for portraits, and this little spot by Folsom Lake is one of my most favorites.  We took a stroll around the trails leading to the lake and found plenty of gorgeous spots to pose for pictures. I love posing expecting mamas along the beach here and I love to tuck my subjects into a spot where I can shoot through the leaves and create an interesting frame, and this spot in Folsom is great for that! Not only did we encounter pretty surroundings, in addition the afternoon sunlight was golden and beautiful and it made my photographer’s heart very happy.
Wishing a huge congratulations to this sweet family as they anticipate the arrival of their baby boy. Thanks for the fun time!
