When I first found out I was pregnant I had big plans to do everything very naturally. I've held on to some of these idealistic dreams of what parenting would be like, while others went right out the window. But one thing that I've really stuck to is breastfeeding, and I'm so glad I have.
I think that breastfeeding is one of the most beautiful things that a mother can do for her child. It amazes me that every day for the past year of my life, for almost every meal, I have provided nourishment for my son using my own body. It's amazing what us women are capable of!
So needless to say, when Renata contacted me about doing a breastfeeding session I was very excited. After my recent babywearing sessions, I have been looking to do more things motherhood related, and this was one of the things I envisioned.
I took maternity photos of Renata a while back, so this was also a great opportunity get her in front of my lens again, this time with her daughter all grown up. I really enjoyed working with these two and showcasing their gentle, feminine beauty. I can't wait to work with them again in the future, and to add more breastfeeding portraits to my portfolio.
