Gorgeous Professional Nursing and Pregnancy Photos

Looking for The Lactivist? She's retired. But you CAN still find Jen blogging. These days, she's runs A Flexible Life. Join her for life, recipes, projects and the occasional rant.

Lactivist reader Kimberly shot me an email today to point out a photo studio that has a gallery of pregnancy and breastfeeding photos up on their site.

Some of the shots are just amazing. (Especially the wide eyed little girl leaning against her mom's belly and the very close shot of a baby nursing in mom's lap.)

These pictures make me think I need to get a really good posed shot of Emmitt nursing while he's still at it.

    Thank you! Besides birth photos breastfeeding photos are the best. Thanks so much for sharing.

    What gorgeous pictures.
    I used to look at breastfeeding photos when I was pumping at work. A surefire way to bring on the letdown!

    The nursing pictures are nice, but ain't nothing pretty about stretch marks.

    Just my 2 cents :)

    Judy, I personally love my belly stretchmarks - the babes may grow up but I'll have those to touch and remember even after they fade. I was in a belly dance recital 3 weeks before giving birth the first time and intentionally matched the purple of my belly-bare costume to my stretch marks!
    Picture of me in the costume online at:

    (photo by my husband - 250lbs and that was actually >2wks before the birth, and I'd never felt more beautiful)

    Jen, if we actually are meeting some day before Emmit weans, I'd be more than happy to take some nursing portraits of you. I've done zero work on my website for a long time now (moving + pregnancy = photography business on the back burner), but a small part of my portfolio is online at:
    http://www.digitaldreamsphotography.com/gallery2/portfolio/ (there's only one nursing picture there currently, and images of one pregnant woman - I have more but haven't gotten permission to post them online, and now it'll take a little digging to figure out what hard drive they're on).

    And yes, I'll get my flippin' homebrith story up on my blog SOMEDAY (soon), but pictures from the birth (all PG except maybe some boobage that I don't think anyone reading here would be bothered by),:
    http://www.yeungs.us/gallery2/family/2007/06/?g2_page=2 (more pictures of baby Del on the next page after that, still need to get more July pictures up)... I think the page prior to that one has some self-portraits I did on a whim of my own belly about a week before he was born.

    I got plenty of wonderful maternity shots, but I haven't gotten any nursing photos yet -- I need to do that soon, because Christina is getting to the age where everything else is more interesting than nursing, and I'm afraid she'll stare at the camera instead of nursing while we're trying to get the pictures!
