Breastfeeding – An Act Of Love

 

Isn’t nature so perfect?

I’ve always known that breastmilk is everything babies need for their first 6 months, it contains essential enzymes, hormones and immunoglobulins that are vital for babies normal growth, development and good health throughout their whole life and it protects babies against a wide variety of illness and conditions. 👶

In Brazil I used to see women breastfeeding in public places all the time, all mothers I know breastfeed or breastfed their babies, it is natural, it is normal..

I’ve learnt recently that Ireland has one of the lowest breastfeeding rates in the world 😲

And I have to confess that I was a bit shocked.. And wanted to do something to help change this.

Then I met Janelle, this beautiful mammy who wanted breastfeeding photographs taken as she is very proud to be breastfeeding 💚 I fell in love with her photos and the idea for this project was born 😍

I wanted to make this bigger, so I photographed another 5 breastfeeding mammies to support the project.

I will make a different video highlighting the importance of breastfeeding with the photos from each photo session 😊

And here is the first one 🤩

Hope you like it!

Love Stories

I have always loved photographing people.

During the last 10 years (maybe 11, kinda lost count) I’ve photographed a bit of Fashion, Show, Plays, Events, some Families a lot Portraits (which I’ve always known I loved)..

I think that now I am at that stage when you see babies everywhere (my facebook feed is full of babies 😂) and you find them all so cute and you the see the love in their mother’s eyes when looking at them and you start to understand what motherhood is about and that there is love in even an everyday shower in the sink or in changing your baby’s nappy and making them feel comfortable and clean 💚

These are some of the reasons why I am sooooo in love with Family Photography, I see a love story in every interaction and it just makes sense 😊

I love this session, Janelle is proud to be breastfeeding and wanted some memories for Reuben who going to be 1 this month 🎂

Janelle inspired me to start a new photography project:

Breastfeeding – An Act of Love

I’m really, really excited about it and will be talking about it on the next post ✨💫

Have a great Sunday 😘
