A standard procedure with modeling photography is signing a model release. Each participant will need to have a modeling release signed by their parent or guardian in order to shoot. Please print out a copy via link below, complete the form and have it with you when you come to the shoot. We understand this experience may be new for some parents. We've included answers to many common questions below. But if you'd like to discuss any particular questions or concerns you're welcome to contact us via the information at the bottom of the page.

MILK BATH WORKSHOP DETAILSWe're excited to offer this unique photoshoot opportunity to DEPAC but we bet you have some questions. Below are answers to the more common ones:
Q: What do you wear for this? A: We recommend a black bandeau top (like this) and either black boyshorts or bikini bottoms. Boyshort style bottoms tend to shoot better but do what your most comfortable in. You can usually find either at your local Walmart or Target.
Q: Do you use actual milk? A: No, we use a combination of water and powdered creamer to create the effect. When milk comes it contact with hot water it begins to spoil and the smell can get stuck in the models hair. We avoid actual milk for other sanitary reasons as well.
Q: Is this cold? A: Because we use powdered creamer we're able to use warm water. These shoots are also done indoors.
Q: Where are these photos used? A: Jaze Companies will not use any milk bath photos from this workshop publicly without first obtaining your express consent. You, however, are welcome to post them and/or share with family privately or online.
Q: How will my child be portrayed in these images? A: Most of our milk bath shoots are with minors - we'll ensure the images taken are age appropriate. Some additional samples can be viewed below.
