August was Breastfeeding Awareness Month. I decided to breastfeed many years before J came along and before he came, I was scared and worried not because I might not be able to but because it seemed so strange and exposing. And it was, but then it became so much more. It became a bond and a journey and a lifestyle and I love to help other moms celebrate all of that and bring awareness to the beauty of the journey. So I organized this nursing event to capture all these mamas and show them off.
“A baby nursing at a mother’s breast… is an undeniable affirmation of our rootedness in nature.” -David Suzuki
I was approached to do a nursing session by this mama (who yes we have seen before in Back to the Abbey, +1 and we’ll see again soon!) who nursed 4 babies and decided to capture this beautiful relationship to preserve forever. This was such an amazing session to do as my little J is still nursing and I value every photo I have of our nursing relationship; it’s a treat to be able to give another mama the same memories.
