There are many ways to empower new moms and offering breastfeeding photography is one of my favourite ones!
I get to help a mom capture that special bond and connection with her child. Connection that sometimes takes a long time to accomplish.
Breastfeeding is a journey that doesn’t come as easy as we may think based on information shared online or in movies.
We often believe because it’s natural, it should be easy. But for majority of moms there are months of tears and struggles before you and your baby finally settle into comfortable and painless routine.
Breastfeeding photo sessions are a way for us to celebrate the journey. To celebrate ourselves and what our bodies are capable of.
There is no love stronger than the love a mother has for her child, and the special bond these two share is something like no other. Just having the chance to see the way Solenn looks at her mother, plays with her hair, laughs with her, and reaches for her is the most heart warming experience I’ve gotten the chance to be a part of.
Every mom has different reasons for booking breastfeeding portraits. But I can assure you that every single one of them will sit there and look at those photographs over and over again because it evokes something within her.
While taking pictures at home with your phone or camera is great for everyday documenting. However professional breastfeeding photography is a wonderful experience that you just can’t get at home on your own. Not only is the quality of the photographs that I can take much better. I will capture the true, raw emotion of that certain moment. As a photographer I have a trained eye that can see the details that you would otherwise miss trying to do it yourself. I can offer you a different perspective, from the outside looking in.
Most mothers are concerned that they will not know how to pose for their shoot. It is an understandable concern but not one that you need to spend much time worrying.
You do not need modeling experience to book a nursing session. It is my job to guide. I think the perfect breastfeeding session is created when little direction is given and I will do my best on making you feel comfortable.
I recommend bringing the child’s favourite stuffed animal, a favourite blanket, or any other item that is used at home for soothing. A professional photoshoot can be intimidating for a little one. This provides some familiarity and can help make the experience less scary.
I can’t wait to meet your family and take unique photos that help to tell your’s family’s story. Cheek out more images in the family gallery. If you think you may be interested in booking a session, please say hello on the contact form below and we can chat!
