I saw a quote from BirthNerds the other day that resonated with my personal experience, that said: "Every lactation journey is unique and influenced by individual circumstances, choices, and support systems."
Everyone's journey is so different and we have no idea how that journey has formed a person...
I often get asked why I photograph people feeding their babies, and it's simply because: I wish I had done so for myself.
Simple as that.
These are the exact images I would want for myself...and my heart bursts when I am able to give this experience to others.
