A couple months ago I read this post from Heather at It’s All About the Hat and started jumping in my seat when I heard that I could participate in this wonderful project. Katrina from Musings of a Redhead is doing a photography project of mothers and their babes nursing. Katrina is an awesome lady that I didn’t know before I heard about her project, but now that I do, I’m really enjoying reading her blog and looking at her lovely photography. She even gave me advice about my roses! And she even had her breach baby at home just weeks ago! My kind of lady.
We did our photos in the Salt Lake City Public Library which felt very fitting because my crazed obsession for books and the fact that we nurse in that particular library quite frequently. Katrina (with then an adorably big pregnant belly) was so nice and made me feel comfortable in front of the camera. At one point, I accidentally covered Peanut’s head with the book I was “reading” and Katrina said something along the lines of “Dea, can you tell your mommy to move her book? It’s covering your face.” Come on! If someone can correctly that sweetly when I’m being klutzy me I can’t help but like them!
So if you’re in the area, you should definitely contact Katrina about participating. Even if you’re outside of the area and have some professional photos of you nursing, you can send those in too! Until then, you should go check out my pictures.
This one is my favorite. It’s Peanut and I signing “I love you” to each other.
