Breastfeeding Photography Chicago – A wonderful way to remember a beautiful act
A way to nourish and bond
In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week, I would love to present some moms and their little ones, who decided to have photos taken during their special bonding time. Their own moment of closeness. I feel so proud and inspired to display these photographs and thank them for letting me capture their connection.
Breastfeeding portraits are a wonderful way to remember this beautiful act
Breastfeeding is a tradition as old and valued as motherhood. It allows a mother to bond with her child and provides much-needed nutrients. Breastfeeding is a beautiful act of love.
Times have changed. It is something to be thankful for how over the years attitudes have shifted regarding breastfeeding. Now, breastfeeding afforded legal protections so mothers can breastfeed without fear of harassment. It finally became more accepted worldwide as something that mothers can do privately or publicly without any shame. Never should any woman should feel she needs to hide or be nervous about breastfeeding.
Usually, we carefully capture our babies and toddler first and milestones, while we miss photos of this magical part of journeys. Those hours of bonding, while you nourish your baby, are just as special as all the firsts, and totally deserve a place in your photo library! Not just lost in your phone selfies, but beautifully captured images that have pride of place, for you and your little one to look back on with wonder and pride.
I clearly believe breastfeeding is something to be celebrated and honored. I love working with mothers to create a portrait of themselves and their child that tells a story. A portrait tells a story about a mother and her child. Their special moment. Most importantly, by doing these breastfeeding portraits with mothers, I hope to provide a beautiful memory that a family can treasure and reduce the wrongheaded stigma that is sometimes directed at those who want to feed and care for their babies. With all the benefits breastfeeding provides for children, it makes sense that breastfeeding acceptance is on the rise as people feel more comfortable openly discussing or engaging in breastfeeding.
