I’ve seen a lot of breastfeeding session photos circling the internet these past few months. A dear friend of mine in Germany has created a beautiful video highlighting motherhood and breastfeeding and all the love that surrounds it. You can watch her video here. As a mother of four children, all of which I have breastfed, this is a topic near and dear to my heart.
During my trip to San Diego, one of the fellow photographers who I’d met during the workshop I attended in February, had asked if I could capture this special moment for her and her youngest son. We had already planned to meet at the beach to photograph a newborn at sunset so I told her to bring the kids, bring her clothes to change into, and we would make it happen!
The baby we were photographing that evening was a little difficult to settle. Daylight was running out quickly and the sun was setting fast. We only had a few moments to snap these images of her with her son before the sun was gone. I’m so glad we made it a point to do this. Here are my personal favorites from her breastfeeding session.
