Breastfeeding Session at Sunset on the Beach | Seattle baby photographer

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.
