Savannah Family Photographer | Baby Milk Bath Photography

< back to blog

Model calls are a must for any child and family photographer starting a business. Over the course of 3 days I photographed a handful of babies ranging from 6 months to 22 months in age for fruit/flower baths. I was able to stock my portfolio, learn some lessons, and meet some great people in a short amount of time. Here are some of the fun images along with some FAQ’s and things I learned along the way!

Best Fruit and Flowers for a Milk Bath

Best Age for a Baby Milk Bath?

For the low end of an age range, I would say as long as your little one can sit unassisted and be comfortable without holding on to mom or dad they can do a fruit/flower bath. On the flip side, I would say as long as a child will fit into one of the tubs and are willing to stay in the tub they aren’t too old. The youngest I’ve shot to date was right at 6 months and the oldest was right under 2. The older babies seems to get into it a little more and will play with the fruit and flowers as well as play with me as I take photos. When I have my little girl I know it will be hard to wait but I think between 12 and 24 months is the ideal age range, she might get trial runs before she gets that age though, haha!!

Tips for Making the Milk Bath Photoshoot Go Smoothly

  • make sure your little one can sit unassisted in a tub of water comfortably for 15-20 minutes
  • make sure your little one is fed and has napped prior to the session – don’t book a session during naptime or meal time. A tired and/or hungry baby doesn’t care how cute they look in a tub of fruit and flowers
  • bring some snacks, videos, songs, small toys, etc. that get your little one smiling
  • leave any “negative Nancy’s” at home – if you bring a friend or family member who thinks the session is dumb your baby may feed off their negative energy
  • don’t rush it! – if your baby isn’t ready wait a few months or longer and schedule when they are a little older
  • be prepared to let them cry it out a little – each of the shoots had a crying child…some for a minute or two at the beginning some at the end when they were “done”. For the little one’s who cried at the beginning letting them settle and cry it out for a few minutes worked well and I was able to get beautiful images
