Naomi & Bump - My first milk and flower bath07:48
Model: Naomi & Flower crown and foliage provided by BareBlooms
Creating memories for others is so so important to me, especially for mothers to be. Becoming a mother you understand what it is to mean to LOVE. A love that is different to any other and my aim this year is to capture mothers to be in a unique and personal way.
For a long time I have always wanted to create milk and flower baths with mothers, either pregnant or with their new borns. I was always so scared to do them as I wasn't sure how I would be around a naked person or in fact I worried more that I wouldn't be able to put this brave women exposing herself to me at ease. Gosh I was wrong, being scared only made me work harder to ensure that this wonderful beautiful person standing bare before me, was comfortable. I think straddling the bath with a dress on helped. I forget that although I don't see myself how others do, that really if I just be myself I get the results I want and that the mother wants.
I am so lucky that I get to call this my job and on this shoot I got to work with my dear dear friend Chloe. A flower genius. I recently did a wreath making class with her. We have fastly become the greatest of friends and this year we plan on working together a lot. Like myself she is obsessed with flowers, the only difference is, she knows what she is talking about.
This year is all about working with great people, building a portfolio and boosting my very low confidence and I must say this shoot really has helped in those areas.
If you would like to see more of my work I am currently working on a online portfolio. Please do take a peek and if you are interested in booking me for a unique maternity shoot please please get in contact.
