Following the successful launch of our Maternity Milk Bath Photography in Studio, many clients have asked if they can do Baby Milk Bath Photoshoot as a continuation to their maternity photoshoot.
YES! We are so excited to embark on the continuation of the milk bath series with babies. All done in our studio with adult sized and baby sized tubs. All ingredients for the milk bath products are made in and imported from Japan.
You know how it goes for the first few months of having baby… restless, tired, constantly worried about the baby and now they are 3-months old and they are happy and smiley when you play with them. For those of you who have finally settled down after the initial blur of the first month or so of your newborn baby, this would be a perfect opportunity to catch up on preserving memories of their milestones.
For the lucky mummies on maternity leave, being intentional to make memories of them at this time is always a rewarding experience. Sink in the tub with them in our adult tub and/or photograph them alone in the baby tub to add to their memory bank.
Alternative To Half-Birthday Photoshoot
Alternatively, baby milk bath photography is definitely a different way of celebrating a half-birthday without cakes! A ‘post bath-coma’ to ease them to nap afterwards never hurts too :p
Just in case you have some questions in mind about this milk bath series, we have answers for you below.
Who Is Suitable?
Baby Milk Bath is an especially special milestone to photograph babies who LOOOOOVEEE their bath time. They are all smiles and giggles when you put them in the tub, and starts kicking and splashing once they are in water. They feel comfortable, calm and playful. They exude so much personality and accomplishments during their favourite activity of the day.
Why Do Baby Milk Bath Photoshoot?
There are a numerous of reasons why mummies ask for and do baby milkbath photoshoots. We have listed them below.
1. They have done Maternity Milk Bath Photoshoot and want a continuation of their milkbath photo shoot journey with their baby.
2. They missed their newborn photoshoot and want to do a catch up shoot before they head back to work within the first 2-3 months.
3. They have seen others do it overseas. Now they are looking to to be one of the first few to do a milk bath photoshoot for their baby here in Singapore.
4. Their babies simply lovvvveeee being in water and enjoys their bath time and they would like to preserve these fleeting moments before they outgrow the baby bath tub.
5. Wants the best of both worlds to do some ‘dry’ classic baby shots and milkbath tub shots in one studio session.
6. Needs a proper family photo while they are still a baby.
Do Mummies Need To Be In The Tub?
If baby is still unable to sit up independently (eg. 2-3 months), we would advise mummy to be in the tub with them as well. This is for baby to feel familiar and comfortable in mummy’s presence.
Is It Safe?
Safety is our number 1 priority in doing photoshoots. We would never get clients to attempt a difficult pose if we feel it is not safe. Bambini Photography works especially well with clients who trust us. If you are unsure and have reservations, then we may not be a good fit for each other for this type of photography. We would suggest that you stick with the classic baby shoots.
We also use flowers or leaves, but if you’d like a plain and simple one, by all means that will be great too. We also have our own rubber duckies that could act as props or can be toys that babies play while capturing the shoot.
What To Bring?
Bring your baby’s favourite small bath toys and normal toys, and you being around to play with and sing to them. Your presence is something comfortable and familiar that will keep them relaxed during the shoot. Oh and do bring towels and clothes for them to change into after the shoot too!
What Should the Baby Wear?
Bring a couple of clothing for them during the ‘dry’ studio session. We do prefer them to be half naked for both dry and water shots. Putting swim diapers on for water shots so we can capture their cute tummy rolls and squishy arms! You could have them wear something simple as well, like an overall. And accessories are great too – a baby bow tie, grandpa hat or headbands (only if baby is usually ok to have head gears on their head).
Is Baby Clothing Provided?
We do have some baby clothing available in studio. However, do bring some along to personalise the shoot for your baby.
What Should Mummy Wear?
For the family shot, do bring wear similar toned coloured clothing with baby and other half. For the milk bath part, mummy can wear similarly to maternity photoshoots. Bring along your nude, white and black undergarments and put on your best smiles. We have robes and fabrics in studio for you to use if needed.

Once you have decided that this is it, all you have to do is to bring yourselves and enjoy your precious time as a family. Thats our aim and vision to preserve memories of families. We love families and the joy the babies bring to their family, and we hope we can capture that for you. We also have the tubs prepared in our studio, so just book and have fun!
