BACKDROP FOR MILK BATH IS ALL WHITE
Bring an extra pair of clothing. The session gets messy. Normally it’s the parents who have to dig into the cake.
Things you'll need:
*plastic bag for the dirty clothes
*wet towel (outdoors)
*dry towel (studio)
*solid balloons (optional)
*outfit for baby
*two dozen real roses (milk bath only)
*extra water for baby (Babies get very thirsty once they start eating the cake!
*twin size white sheet (outdoors)
*baby’s favorite toys & snacks, just in case!
I do have a few outfits available for the girls but not the boys. I highly recommend you bring your own. My outfits are more of a backup, and I do not allow you to use them for the cake pictures because they will get ruined. If you would like to see some examples, please let me know. I'll be happy to email them to you.
