Yesterday I shared with you part one of Emerson’s 6 month photo session. Today I have my favorite photos from the session: the breastfeeding photos. It still surprises me every time that, even when given a library full of books and props, my favorite photos are the ones of mom and baby having a quiet moment. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Sarah and I had a vision of a very peaceful, hippie-like Earth Mama shoot for Emerson’s 6 month breastfeeding photos. A few days before our shoot, she braved the mid-day heat to scout out the big tree that we started our session at to ensure it had enough shade and wasn’t too distracting. Poor Mr. Emerson was still a little distracted by the light traffic passing by and we ended up doing to majority of the actual breastfeeding photos in their yard. I think that might be what I like best about these photos: that nothing else matters other than the bond between mom and baby.
I simply COULD NOT, for the life of me, cut down my list of favorites. So grab a healthy snack and enjoy!
