a newborn and his mama | breastfeeding photographer boston

This was the first time I’ve had the special privilege to photograph a mama breastfeeding. I’m thrilled to have her permission to share these images on the blog because I hope Ashley can encourage more women to capture this special bond with their babies. These photos were taken in five minutes of the most incredible peace and love I have ever witnessed, and I’m so glad those moments are captured forever for her to look back on.

Ashley specifically requested these photos in the newborn session; she wished she had taken images like these with her first baby, but she was too embarrassed to show such an intimate moment. I hope these images can show that feeding your baby is not something to be ashamed of, nor does it have to be a “bare all” photograph for it to be special. We simply made these photos to represent the intense love and connection between a mama and her newborn.
