Create memories of those special times with your baby
Celebrate breastfeeding in your baby photography sessions
If you’ve read my first Taboob on this site, you’ll know that for a long time I had this idea of doing a project that celebrated breastfeeding, and it just stayed in my head, nothing happening with it. Discussing this with some of the mums who collaborated on Taboob, some said that when they had done photoshoots with their babies, they had really wanted to do some breastfeeding pictures and were either a little too shy to ask, or the photographer said no.
So it only seemed natural to offer to work with some of these mums to build up some portfolio pictures, especially after seeing work by a wonderful photographer called Jade Beall. I was so inspired by her work.
I’ve done two shoots so far, and these are a handful of images from the first, featuring Kelly and Pixie.
What I love about Jade Beall’s work, and about the breastfeeding photoshoot with Kelly and Pixie, is the joy, happiness and content shown by both the mum and the baby, and that was the key for me. It is such a special time in your life and deserves to be fully celebrated. And while the shoot here features lots of skin on skin contact, please don’t be concerned if this is not your style. I always work within limits, though I often find that people are so relaxed that they often surprise themselves and finish the photoshoot really happy with what they did.
