Professional Nursing Portraits
A special session I offer is for nursing Moms: Breastfeeding Sessions
I loved those moments; whether they were quiet and alone while nursing in the middle of the night, or crazy and chaotic at the splash park, while watching my older two children run amuck in the carefree way that children do. One thing I wanted to remember forever was the way my Son squeezed my side while he nursed. Knowing I’m not alone in this beautiful world of breastfeeding, I want to capture this bond in a beautiful, yet natural way for any Mom who wants the same.
You might be wondering…..
WHY would I want photos like that??
Well, obviously, just as any other type of photography, nursing photos won’t be for every mom. Meghan would love to capture the beautiful bond you are creating with your sweet baby with some equally beautiful portraits. In the end, when your nursing period has come to an end, you will have photos to look back upon and cherish.
I feel awkward and/or I don’t want photos of me like that for everyone else to see…..
Awkwardness, I can relate…. three babies, three different breastfeeding experiences. Guess what… your baby loves you. They don’t pass judgement on you whatsoever!!
I ask every Mom if she wants to share her images publicly or if she’d prefer them to be left for her own. Sometimes, a Mom will be unsure of the final images before and during her session, asking the photos not be shared publicly, but after viewing their final images, they’ll find the precious images of her and her baby bonding are beautiful and should be shared, encouraging other nursing moms.
I don’t nurse, I bottle-feed, but I want the same type of photos….
Let’s do it. All babies need to be fed. If you would like to capture those precious bonding moments, whether by breast or by bottle, I encourage you to do so! I don’t want to exclude any Mom (or Dad!) who wants to document these precious moments.
Regular nursing mini-sessions are held once a year late July/early August, in conjunction with World Breastfeeding Week. Be sure you’re following me on Facebook for event notifications, as well as subscribed to my e-newsletter for a notification straight to your inbox!
If you’d like to schedule a breastfeeding session separate from the yearly mini-sessions, please contact me!
