Do you or have you breastfed your child(ren)? I think breastfeeding is a personal choice, and some can’t even do so with medical reasons. Society may still see it differently, but we, mothers, are here to protect and nourish our children. We should be able to choose what’s best for our little ones and do so whenever and wherever! The more we talk about it and the more we show up and breastfeed, the world will change their perspective.
I have been so lucky to work with Liz Thomas, the campaign founder of #ittasteslikelove, for a while now. I love documenting this very special time between mothers and children and help normalize breastfeeding in public.
My personal experience was really short for both of my children. I was only able to breastfeed about 3.5 months due to pregnancy and lack of supply. During the time, I have never thought of photographing myself or even asked someone to photograph me breastfeeding. But I miss it now. I wish I had more tangible memories of me breastfeeding because I believe it’s so beautiful. ( Thanks to my husbands, he took ONE cell phone picture when I first breastfed my first child at home, and I am cherishing it.)
If you ever want me to photograph your breastfeeding journey, just ask! I can even set up some studio mini session for you.
