WHAT IS ONE OF THE SCARIEST THINGS A PHOTOGRAPHER CAN DO? 
TRYING SOMETHING NEW THAT THROWS THEM COMPLETELY OUT OF THEIR COMFORT ZONE. 
 
I HAVE DONE A HANDFUL OF MATERNITY SESSIONS IN MY CAREER, BUT ADD THE WORDS MILK-BATH TO THAT AND YOU INSTANTLY FEEL THE PRESSURE ON YOU. OH, AND LET ME SPECIFY THAT THESE SESSIONS REQUIRE YOU TO HANG OUT IN THE BATHROOM THE ENTIRE TIME ANDDDDD FOLLOW A RECIPE TO ACHIEVE THE PERFECT MILK-BATH TEXTURE. EASY RIGHT? HMMMM NO! AKWARD RIGHT? WELL, THAT IS WHAT I ORIGINALLY THOUGHT BUT ACTUALLY IT WAS THE EXACT OPPOSITE.
 
I STILL REMEMBER WHEN I FIRST HEARD THE WORDS MILK-BATH I IMMEDIATELY WAS GROSSED OUT. WHY ON EARTH WOULD ANYONE WANT TO BATHE IN MILK? WELL, NOT ONLY DO THEY PRODUCE STRIKINGLY GORGEOUS IMAGES, THE MILK HAS A GREAT BENEFIT LIST FOR MOMMIES TO BE AND THEIR SKIN. SO, WE WENT FOR IT. 
 
I HAD TO MAKE THE POWDERED MILK MIXTURE IN A SMALL GALLON CONTAINER AND GRADUALLY ADD IT INTO THE WARM WATER OF THE TUB. YOU HAVE TO BE SUPER CAREFUL WITH THIS STUFF, BECAUSE IF IT BUBBLES AND FIZZES YOU FAIL. AFTER I ACHIEVED THIS PERFECTION OF A MILK-BATH ON THE FIRST TRY, I FELT LIKE A ROCKSTAR! BRING ON MY MODEL!
 
IN COMES MY STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS MOMMY TO BE, BRITTANIE (WHO WAS THE PERFECT PERSON TO TRY THIS OUT ON). I HELPED HER INTO THE WARM BATH ​AND AS SOON AS SHE GOT SETTLED IN, I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO MAGICAL. BEFORE EVEN TAKING ONE PICTURE IT WAS BEAUTIFUL JUST ON MY EYES. THE CREAMY TEXTURE OF THE MILK-BATH PAIRED WITH THE LACEY DRESS WAS BREATHTAKING. THIS SESSION WAS BEYOND AMAZING, AND IT WAS NOT JUST BECAUSE OF THE DREAMINESS OF IT. THIS WAS DIFFERENT. INSTEAD OF PERFECTING POSES AND WALKING AROUND A LOCATION, I GOT TO DOCUMENT A FULLY RELAXED MOMMY TO BE ENJOYING THE LAST FEW WEEKS OF HER SWEET AVERY JAMES BEING IN HER WOMB. THIS EXPERIENCE HIT ME LIKE A TON OF BRICKS. IT WAS SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL...THAT IS THE ONLY THING I CAN SAY TO EXPLAIN IT.
 
THIS SESSION I WAS PETRIFIED OF, IS NOW ONE OF MY MOST MEMORABLE MOMENTS IN MY CAREER. TRYING NEW THINGS SCARES THE SHIT OUT OF ME BUT THIS IS THE ONLY WAY I CAN GROW. I AM FOREVER THANKFUL TO BRITTANIE FOR TRUSTING ME AND ALLOWING ME TO CAPTURE SOME INTIMATE MOMENTS OF HER PREGNANCY TO SHOW TO THE WORLD.
