Every year I photograph moms and their babes in my gardens in celebration of World Breastfeeding Week. I offer breastfeeding portrait sessions year round in your home or at a place that is special to you and your baby.
While breastfeeding is natural, it is not always easy to do. Many women struggle with low supply and babies have difficulty latching for various reasons including discomfort, lip or tongue tie, etc. Joy is part of our local breastfeeding support group. She and our other mothers offer advice and encouragement to help each mom reach their personal breastfeeding goal.
While breastfeeding is on the rise again, nursing mothers are still met with criticism and judgement regarding many aspects of it including breastfeeding in public. I hope that these images will show the beauty that is a part of feeding our children our own milk.
