This is my best friend Nicole! With her first, Nora, we never got a chance to take maternity pictures. Nora came 3.5 weeks early and life was crazy. This time around, we made it a priority to get pictures before Nicole went into labor. Things get so busy especially when you have a 3 year old and you work full time…but, luckily, we made it a priority to get these pictures before little Maggie made her debut. Nicole had seen some photos of a toddler with her pregnant mama and it really touched her so we really wanted to get some photos with her and Nora. We decided to do more of a lifestyle session in side with the family, but I still wanted to do something special to focus on just Nicole and her belly.
Milk Bath Maternity
We were brainstorming the night before, making a plan and on a whim Nicole mentioned that milk bath maternity sessions were pretty. We just happened to have all the things we needed….I had this dress is from Amazon, we used powdered milk for the bath, and Nicole went and grabbed some flowers that morning. We absolutely loved how the pictures turned out….the pregnant body is just simply gorgeous! I also made her go outside in the freezing cold for some pictures. But it was #worthit. All of this was at her home in Laurel, MD and this shoot is particularly fun because we got 3 completely different looks all in one session. Milk bath photos, traditional maternity photos, and lifestyle photos. If you need a Laurel, MD maternity photographer, I’m your girl!
I don’t bring my kids to all my sessions but when I do they have dance parties and help the other kids smile!! BAHAHAH… the benefit taking pictures of your best friend!! If you want to see Nora’s 1 year pictures check them out here.
