“Nothing else comes close to the ability to calm and soothe him, the way I can when I feed him.

“He looks to me for safety and love, and it makes me so happy that I am still able to do this for him. There are many benefits to breastfeeding and extended breastfeeding.

“When I feed my babies, that is our time, it is the only thing I share with them that no one else can, that’s worth capturing, posed or un-posed.

“I have a lot of negative and hurtful comments when I have my photos, it can be annoying sometimes, but I try not to let it get to me.

“I know that I do best for my boys, and I will continue to do so as long as they need. I share my portraits to try and to help normalize breastfeeding, to normalize something that is actually completely natural.

“I encourage all breastfeeding mothers to do the same, capture these moments while you can enjoy every ounce of your time feeding your babies.”

She told how, as well as breast-feeding, Hans at normal.

“I love sharing my photos and I am very grateful for all the support and love I receive is,” the photographer continued.

“Breastfeeding is very difficult in the beginning, I had mastitis, all kinds of problems, because I do not know what I was doing, but it’s become even better with time.”

“I hope to normalize breastfeeding by sharing my posts.
