Breastfeeding is and has been a big part of my life for the past two and a half years. My sweet friend M asked me to capture this moment in time with her son and we had a lot of fun. I posted one of the pictures and the response from other moms was incredible. They wanted to capture the moment too! I'm not being braggy but a lot of them said that they didn't feel like anyone could capture the moment like I could since I feel so strongly about breastfeeding and extended breastfeed - quite a compliment!
I decided to do mini sessions since you probably don't need 30 pictures of you nursing your kiddo. Mini sessions provided 8-10 images from a 15-20 minute shoot.
This worked out perfectly. Just enough time to get mom and baby/toddler settled in and nursing.
I would just walk around and snap shots of them.
Of course it was more tough with the toddlers who wanted to get up and run around and were so curious about the snap of the camera shutter.
But clients got some pictures of them with baby...
...and some beautiful photos of mom nursing baby.
I hope they will treasure these images of a special time in their journey of motherhood. Such great mamas. XOXO.
