I know.. I know.. It sounds strange. But when you read more about them, you learn that not only are these soaks extremely beneficial to your body weather your pregnant or not. But they also make for some of the most beautiful portraits out there.
And Cherry Hill New Jersey area finally has a Maternity Photographer that offers these timeless, amazing photos. What Better way then for a Pregnant mommy to be to get pampered with a wonder milk Bath and while doing it capture some amazing art.
So This is the big question I always get.. What are Milk Bath Portraits?
Milk Bath Portraits are just that a Bath that has milk added to it and we capture the beauty of the glowing mom or new mom with her newborn baby. It is such a calm and peaceful portrait that you cannot stop looking at them.
What do you wear to a Milk Bath Portrait Session?
You can wear what ever you want! While I do carry in my Cherry Hill studio select outfits and gowns that go great with these types of portraits. I don't this there is a specific limit on what to wear. I personally love the neutral colors. If you can't tell by my work, I seem to gravitate to them.
I am so excited to do more milk bath photos this summer! I have to say this was so much fun. If you'd like to do a session like this of your own feel free to contact our studio at 856-912-0731.
The absolutely stunning Ashley meet up with me on the NJ brigantine beach for an outdoor, sunset maternity photography session. We have beautiful lighting, but honestly the real glow came from mama and her beautiful baby bump. Can you believe she is just about due with her newborn little baby boy.. I can't wait to meet him and photograph him.
When this beautiful mama to be came on the beach.. I almost dropped my camera! She definitely made my job seem so easy and this sweet couple who are first showed up so nervous, by the end of the day we were laughing and joking so hard that it seemed like we knew each other forever.
Don't we all wish we looked this good pregnant?
Are you just pregnant and thinking about having maternity photos? Here are some things to think about.
First, pregnancy isn't always pretty. I know you may think I am crazy and think everyone in the world has to feel beautiful. Well I will say as a mom of three beautiful girls I was never one who enjoyed being pregnant. I had gained a lot of weight, swell up more than I think would be humanly possible and I always thought I resembled a large beached whale. It was just not for me I thought.
Just thinking about taking Maternity Pictures made me want to cringe. Why would I want to remember that, I would always think. Just thinking about finding a outfit that would remotely look nice on me scared me to death. Not to mention this whole glow thing people talked about I didn't see. Nothing was glowing on me at all during my pregnancy. And all these women that I had seen on Photographers sites were all just to perfect.
With the hatred of pregnancy photos of myself in mind. I told myself "these images I know I am going to hate, I would just suck it up and do it and put them away in a box for no one to see" I hired a professional photographer in the Cherry Hill New Jersey area and went to her studio. I remember my husband helping me thought my butter flies in my stomach. It was all a blur but I have to say I didn't regret it and neither will you.
Now I look back and I am so happy that I didn't pass up on pregnancy portraits. I wanted to get through that process so quickly. I didn't want her to look at me big, or what I thought was big was all in my head. In the end it didn't matter. After having my beautiful newborn baby girl nothing mattered and the fact that I was able to look at those images once she was here to remember the time I took maternity photos meant the world to me. To know this little beautiful baby girl that my husband and I created looked just like me. Well when she came out she looked like me.. I don't know about now. HAHA!
Now I say this all now because my three beautiful baby girls are not babies anymore, not even infants they are now 19, 15, 9. I cherished those portraits I was able to take at the Cherry Hill NJ Photography studio. I keep them in a special place and they are very dear to my heart.
We don't realize before having kids that our whole lives lead us to this journey of something called motherhood... Something you will forever cherish and love when that tiny little new baby calls you mommy, your heart will be forever changed!
Perfection, that is how I define this beautiful maternity session. Not just because the photos turned out FABULOUS but because I have these AMAZING clients that have trusted me over the years to photograph their precious memories.
This family has it all.. They have More to LOVE coming there way. Having more to love is a wonderful thing, isn't it? I think so. Over the years I have enjoyed watching so many of my clients families grow from being a family of two to a family of three, three to a family of four and so on. It is a such a beautiful thing to see and most importantly it is a true blessing to be able to photograph such a wonderful memory for them to cherish for years to come.
Thank you S Family for the amazing time spent capturing your beautiful pregnancy moments.
Before I became pregnant, someone told me, " Don't have a baby, babies ruin your body."
It has been 19 yrs later. But let me say 19 yrs ago my daughter was just a microscopic speck inside of me, and we were announcing our pregnancy. Between then and now I have gained and lost weight. I have had long sleepless nights, A valley where my belly button once was. His with a new amplitude that my teenage self wouldn't recognize. I have lines mapped across the mountains of stretched skin left over on my midsection. Lightening bolts on my side proving I once was too small to contain all of the love that filled me. These Lines just indicated that my daughters once lived inside of me..
Do you realize the significance in that? Every Limb, finger, toe... and her heart, even developed near the very place my own heart beats inside of my chest. Those mountains of skin that I have is all that I have left to prove that we were once one and not two. It took me many years to realize I cant be ashamed of that.
With each pregnancy I felt the same love for all of my baby girls. Upon seeing my newborn baby girl, all I could do was see there fathers eyes embedded into the sockets, and under the brows and lashes showed grandma. When looking at my girls I would see the 21 year old boy I feel in love with and myself in these little people.
My body grew that.
Not everything has that privilege.
Then I think of my girls today and realize that they don't think about my body, when they look at me they see a mother and know that I love them. Yes I am not something flawless in the eyes of society, or even close to what I once was physically, but my perfect girls see me for who I am..
To them I hang the moon.. They know my heart- they knew it long before we met... She loves me for it.
Pregnancy can be something so special. Cherish these 10 months your pregnant. Document them. For one day you will always want to cherish the fact that your little knew your heart long before you had ever met.
Enjoy the next Chapter... The baby!
Thinking about booking with a session with Saje Photography a Baby Photographer in New Jersey
I know there are many choices for photographers in New Jersey so I really appreciate you taking the time to look at my work.
I have been a Cherry Hill New Jersey Newborn photographer since 2007 and have photographed hundreds of New Jersey's tiniest residents. They are all so cute in there own little way. My studio is located in the Cherry Hill NJ area. Through the years, I have collected many beautiful props that reflect a style that is soft, timeless and natural. I photograph the baby when he or she is 6-10 days old for the most part. They are usually sleeping shots, but have been able to capture newborn looking images up to 3 weeks old. The session will be 2 1/2-3 hours long and during this time, you will relax as I safely photograph your baby with my different gorgeous props. At Saje Photography my goal is to create beautiful artwork that your family will be able to cherish for a lifetime. These moments are so fleeting we know you would like to cherish all of those timeless moments.
I also will take a few parent shots during the same session. I do photograph siblings as well, but ask you to only bring them for the first 30 minutes only so I can focus on the newborn for most of the session to give you a variety of images.
While my specialty is newborns, I also love photographing older babies, such as six month milestones like sitting up and one year old cake smashes (so much fun) as well as beautiful maternity shots. Please let me know if you would like to set up a session.
