I always get asked, “What’s the difference between a milk bath and outdoor maternity session?”, and I get inquiries that say “I’m interested in booking a milk bath shoot with you and would like my husband included. Is this possible?”. So after Many many many responses and consistently answering the same questions, I decided it was a good time to explain the sessions in more detail…
At K-Rae Images, there are two main types of maternity photoshoots offered: Milk Bath Maternity and Natural Light Maternity.
Milk Bath Maternity shoots are unique since few photographers offer this, and they are more artistic so to speak. Women who are drawn to these images understand how “new” they are to maternity photography and that they will be receiving something special that lots of people may not even know exist. This is for a mom who wants the intimate bond between her and baby captured, while relaxing in a warm milky bath with fragrant flowers, fruit, or other items floating around. Fresh Lace gowns are offered to be used during the shoot, and mom’s can choose to have the photos done in the nude or tastefully covered with material provided. The only downside to milk bath sessions in my personal opinion is that they don’t include a significant other or children – this is one reason why mom’s who choose this option may also select to have a natural light shoot as well. To see the whole milk bath process, visit my article, Dallas Milk Bath Maternity Photoshoot Demystified – K-Rae Images.
Natural Light Maternity shoots are more common and are done outdoors at a location of the client’s choice. At K-Rae Images, there are three locations around Dallas that I frequent because I’ve found some amazing areas that always draw me back. I also have clients specifically request these spots after seeing my images. In outdoor shoots, mom’s get to choose from my closet of gowns and pick anything from belly showing to long sleeve gowns and even gowns with a long train to throw in the air if desired! The creativity comes into play in this type of shoot more in the environment, lighting, and posing aspects. Significant others and other children (even pets) can be included here.

Family sessions are always so different because every single family interacts in a unique way with each other, and everyone has a different personality. Boy, this family photoshoot was bursting with personality – I loved it!
Being a photographer who shoots primarily around the Plano and Frisco, TX, I have some great locations that I frequent, and this family photoshoot was done in one of my favorite places because of the lush greenery and water feature. Check it out:

Baby Siya was one of the sleepiest babies I have had in a while, and I would have never guessed it!
Little Siya actually came to me at 18 days old (when I typically photograph babies under 2 weeks old) so of course I was expecting a less sleepy little one. However, to my surprise she was asleep for most of the session and allowed me to move her around into positions without much stirring at all. And best of all, when she did wake up, she didn’t even cry – she just looked at me with her big beautiful eyes.
*A newborn photographer’s dream baby*
Here are a couple shots from her session – she even gave me a smile at the very beginning (to let me know she was going to be a great baby for me no doubt!).
