Ephemeral Beauty of Breastfeeding

Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to do a photoshoot for the Sudbury Breastfeeding Circle. It is a local group of mums who support each other through the journey of breastfeeding.

The breastfeeding experience is different for every mummy and baby pair. No matter how long or short lived the period when mum and child bond through natural feeding, these precious and deeply personal moments are fleeting and rarely captured.

It was such a pleasure photographing these sweet moments for the mums to be able to look back upon and to treasure in years to come. When I was viewing the images taken during this shoot, it made me wish I had images like these of me breastfeeding my eldest. It has inspired me to want to preserve more of these moments for other mums.

If you are a breastfeeding mum looking to get or give local support, you can join the Sudbury Breastfeeding Circle group on facebook. You can also follow the informative The Breastfeeding Circle page on facebook.
