Bertrand Milk Bath Session | RI Children Photographer

I got into photography because I have a horrible memory. Seriously, my best friend sometimes calls me Dory. When I had my girls, I had this urge to document EVERYTHING so I wouldn't forget a single moment. (I know I'm not the only mom who feels this way!) So I picked up a camera and started shooting, and a couple of years later, here I am! And in between photoshoots with amazing clients, I like to continue to document and experiment with my sweet little muses. 

A couple of weekends ago it was really cold outside and we were all starting to get a little antsy being stuck indoors, so I grabbed my camera, my softbox, my assistant (Aaron), a box of fruit loops, and some powdered milk and told the girls it was time to take a bath -- a milk bath! Full disclosure, I'm not usually a fan of the milk bath thing. I've seen it gain more and more steam over the past couple of years, but more with maternity shots, where the mom-to-be is in milk bath with just her belly showing, surrounded by flowers. The concept doesn't quite make sense to me. BUT, kids in a cereal milk bath totally makes sense to me! I had seen something similar on a photography forum I'm a member of called Pretty Forum, so I had to try it out. What do you think?
