Why breastfeeding mothers should be showcased not covered?

In the past 3 weeks I have taken a series of breastfeeding portraits for mothers from all over the Bay Area (click here to see the entire gallery), and I have fallen in love in this project. Mostly because of all the comments I have received from many of the moms after they saw their pictures.

From

“it was my dream to have breastfeeding photos taken with my son”

to

“I showed the picture to my mom and she said she couldn’t stop looking at it”

I could not believed how thrilled and happy were all the moms to be able to participate in such a session. I think, in my whole career I haven’t met a mom who was so excited for a regular family session as those mom were for their breastfeeding sessions.

In my opinion breastfeeding mothers should be showcased and not asked to cover because it’s a very healthy approach to our nature, to our bodies, and because it’s beautiful.

Now it’s your turn. Fill the blanks:

Stanford University Campus Family Session {Family Session, San Jose, CA}

Stanford_Campus_Family_Session_Ewa_Samples_Photography_Bay_Area-8

This was my first session at Stanford Campus, business wise. I was super excited to have it. I got even more excited when I got to know, this place is emotionally close to the family, as one of them works there. It is always a great importance to be able to provide a wonderful photos from a place, that is somehow emotionally close to the people you get to work with.

I liked this place so much, I had several session in there since.

During this session not only I captured many beautiful and tender moments between the whole family, but I got a quick tour of this particular part of the campus.

Last week I had a chance to meet this happy and very content baby boy. At the time he was only 4 days old. So tiny. Just during those few hours I’d spent with him he received many, many hugs and kisses. He is a lucky boy to be born in such a loving family!
