Photographer Lizzy McMillan took inspiration from a Danish fashion shoot and envisioned a new look for maternity photos: a thrown milk dress.

23 litres of milk (mixed with warm water) were thrown at her pregnant model while she photographed the experience.

Amazingly, the session created a spectacular white dairy dress, complete with the illusion of milky ruffles and liquid layers (with the assistance of Photoshop).
