Madelyn's Fruit Bath | San Diego Child Portraits


Okay sorry, just had to get that out of the way. I’ve had a fruit bath session in my brain for YEARS, but I never really had the opportunity to do it. I’m SO excited that I finally had a chance… and it was with my OWN sweet little girl!

I’d like to pretend that I did these in September on purpose as a “farewell to summer” but in actuality, I’m just the worst at taking my own kids’ photos with my “real” camera. I almost decided it was too late & scrapped the shoot, but I happened to be at Sprouts last week & on a whim grabbed some extra fruit & flowers & did the dang thing.

I’m glad I practiced on my own kid because this basin was far from waterproof and my poor husband had to run back and forth from the hose with a pitcher (our hose didn’t reach far enough) to keep the tub full. It was quite the scene but I promised him it would be worth it & I have to say, it totally was! So check out just a handful of my favorite shots of my sweet girl!
