mama & me nourishing sessions

A styled portrait experience


The Details


These portrait sessions started out as an attempt to capture some of the intense sweetness, the challenges, and the raw beauty of breastfeeding. I quickly realized just how many different ways the story of feeding your babies can be told! Sometimes that looks like nursing directly. Sometimes that means you're using a shield, or an SNS, or you're pumping, or supplementing, or using donor milk, or... 

Feeding your baby is a bonding experience like no other. However you do it, I'd like to help you remember what that felt like. Styled sessions are an opportunity to wrap yourself in something luxurious (wear something comfortable to nurse in, and/or make use of my collection of lace robes, kimonos, and blankets) and enjoy a quiet moment together while I use gentle, flattering lighting to capture the beautiful, the playful, and the tender feelings of this stage in your life.

About Chris

Chris has been photographing people for twenty eight years. What began as a hobby at summer camp blossomed into a passion. Telling the stories of my own children and our lives together has driven home for me how important it is to capture not just how a moment looks, but how it feels.

Having nursed both of my children (my youngest until he was 4!), I am so keenly aware of how fleeting this phase of life is, even though there are days where it feels it will never end. 

I hope I can contribute to your family's understanding of its history over the years, helping you show your kids exactly how much you have always loved them!
