I thought it would be fun to post these two sessions together. A before and after, if you will… Eric and Elissa have become great friend of mine. I met them when Eric hired me to photograph them paparazzi style when he proposed to Elissa at Chautauqua park. That was back in 2008. Here they are today, a beautiful family with two dogs and a sweet newborn named Shira. It is such an honor to get to photograph these times in my clients lives.. I really get to capture some intimate moments. And for those of you who are freaked out by breastfeeding shots, or who think that it should be private, get over it. Breastfeeding is one of the most natural aspects of motherhood. I’ve heard that it takes seeing a woman breastfeeding 6 different times for it to sink in and become “natural” to someone who has otherwise not been exposed to breastfeeding. So I’m determined to not only be the photographer who isn’t scared to post breastfeeding on my blog, but I also want to show it for what it is. Beautiful. Natural. Wonderful.
