Let me start by saying this project is very, very dear to my heart. I look at these images and see more than a mother and baby. More than the breastfeeding itself. I see a unique bond between mother + her child. Love. Comfort. Empowerment. I see community among these mothers, a link to the past generations before them and to the future generation they hold in their arms. They are strong, and able, and confident. These sweet tender moments that won’t last forever except in our hearts. Thank you to these beautiful, kind women who allowed me to document their breastfeeding journey with their precious little ones in an effort to bring awareness + normalcy to breastfeeding mothers.
