Vancouver Family Photographer | World Breastfeeding Week

“I’ve been melted into something too easy to spill. I make more and more of myself in order
to make more and more of the baby. He takes it, this making. And somehow, he’s made more of me, too.”
~Brenda Shaughnessy

Those who have heard about my breastfeeding journey with my first baby will know why I’m passionate about it. When my baby wasn’t thriving because of breastfeeding challenges, the milk bank was there to provide her with the antibodies necessary to fight disease and infection until my own milk was established.

Fast forward four years and I find myself sitting on the same couch where I started breastfeeding with my first baby, but this time with my second girl. She was 19 months old and I had a feeling that nursing was coming to an end. That morning I took my camera, set it on timer, and took an image of her and I. Sure enough, two days later, she decided she was done with nursing. I’m so glad I took that shot of me in my pajamas, cuddling her chubby toddler body. No it wasn’t a portfolio worthy one, but it is one I will cling on to for a long time.

Breastfeeding is an incredible part of motherhood. Let’s document this milestone together!

So here I am, encouraging you to do the same with your nursing baby. World Breastfeeding Week is August 1-7 and when you sign up for a breastfeeding mini session with me, I will donate 20% of your session to our local BC Women’s Milk Bank.

THE DETAILS

Your session: A 30 minute-session in the comfort of your own home documenting your nursing time with your baby. We will schedule a time during the day that works for both of us. We can get to know each other if your baby isn’t distracted with our chatting or I can be as quiet as a mouse and observe first to let you both settle in.

What you will receive: For $250, you will receive a collection of 8 hand-edited, high resolution digital images of your choice shared via a private gallery.

Book before AUGUST 3RD and receive a FREE box of professional PRINTS for your collection of images.

Do you have questions or are you ready to book? 
Reply to this email or call me at 604-961-6592. Limited sessions are available between August 3rd and August 17th, so book now! Don’t forget to share this with your friends that may be interested!

THE COMMUNITY

This cause is particularly awesome because I get to team up with two other documentary photographers in Western Canada who will also be donating back to their local milk bank. Do you know of friends in the area who would love some beautiful images of this intimate milestone of motherhood? Please contact Cat McAteer Photography in Calgary or Fiddle Leaf Photography in Edmonton.
