Nourishing Our Babies | Boston Breastfeeding Photography

This past spring I spent a wonderful afternoon in one of my favorite hidden photography spots celebrating one of the most amazing, and most difficult, aspects of parenthood – breastfeeding.  Breastfeeding is an extremely personal experience that each mother must craft for herself.   It can be very hard, much harder than most new mothers are prepared for, and if they’re unable to nurse mothers often feel intense feelings of guilt.  The mothers that are able to breastfeed often must deal with judgement and shaming from the public  and it can feel like a no-win situation.  Except, that in the end, no matter how you choose to feed your baby you are performing a huge act of sacrifice and love.  Mamas/Dads/caregivers are on call 24 hours a day for many months and years to give their child nourishment.  It’s exhausting.  But that experience forms a life-long bond that is a building block for family love and connection.  It’s so important and it’s so BEAUTIFUL.  I could easily get political about the importance of lifting up and supporting the parents in our communities, and if you know me even a bit I think you’ll know where I stand politically, but instead I choose to show what I value with my art and share my voice through these images.  This shoot was a gift to these women and it’s super important for me as an artist to have passion projects like this that don’t support me financially but support my heart and growth.  boston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcboston breastfeeding photography by klcParents, you are so strong.  Thank you for sharing your loves with me.  Interested in capturing this bond with your littles?  Contact me at klc@photographybyklc.com
