In honor of World Breastfeeding Week 2016, I’m offering two days of breastfeeding mini sessions in the month of August. These limited edition sessions are discounted from my normal pricing because I feel every mother deserves to have beautiful nursing images with their babies.
I breastfeed both of my little girls and loved sharing that special bond with them. I wish I had thought to take nursing photos to document those memories! These sessions will last 15 minutes, and include nursing images as well as a few images of you interacting and snuggling with your child.
Although these sessions are to celebrate nursing and World Breastfeeding Week, I know there are mamas out there who have adopted babies or were unable to breastfeed their babies. If this is your situation and you want photos of you and your babies, I’d be happy to do a mommy & me session instead!
Who is included: Breastfeeding mother and nursling(s). I don’t mind adding siblings in for a shot or two but the sessions are mini sessions (15 minutes) and I want to make sure to have enough time to capture the nursing relationship, so it’s up to you if you want to include sessions or have this soley focused on mama and baby.
What should you wear? Soft, solid colors are ideal for the softer feel to the images from these sessions. A flowy dress would be beautiful, or a pretty top. Obviously it has to be something easy to nurse in! I recommend attire you can pull down instead of pulling up, because most mamas tend to be more comfortable being photographed when their tummies are covered, and pulling down versus up means there isn’t a bunch of fabric blocking your baby’s sweet face in the images.
What should your baby wear? I recommend skin to skin for these images! If you want your babe to be more covered, I have various diaper covers, bloomers, tutus, knit pants, and rompers at the studio. Availability varies depending on size and gender, but contact me for more info on what I may have in your baby or toddler’s size. If you want more traditional clothing options versus diaper covers, jeans and no shirt are adorable on little boys, and a pretty dress or romper in soft colors is perfect for little girls.
Will my photos be shared online? Only with your permission. I would love to be able to share these images (photographed discreetly and tastefully with no nudity showing) to promote and normalize breastfeeding! I think nursing is so beautiful and should be shared more often. I also completely respect a family’s right to privacy and would never share images without your permission. If you prefer for your images to not be shared, just let me know when you book your session.
How do I sign up for one of the spots? There are only 5 spots open for the outdoor location and 4 for the indoor location, and I expect these to fill quickly. To reserve your spot, purchase an available session spot here: https://squareup.com/store/beth-johnson-photography/item/breastfeeding-minis
Once your session is purchased, I will send you a contract, which must be signed within 48 hours. If it is not signed, your session fee will be refunded and the session spot will open back up. If this session date doesn’t work for you or spots fill up before you book and you want to be put on the waiting list for the next round of breastfeeding mini sessions, contact me to be put on the wait list for next time!
