Sneak Peak – Handsome 11 week old Josh

This weekend I took another long trip up to Oxfordshire, this time to photograph 11 week old Josh.

Josh’s mother wanted some breastfeeding photos; memories of a very special time. As is my policy, I won’t post those images here as people might be reading this entry at work, however I will be creating a separate breastfeeding gallery soon.

Josh was really not in the mood for a jolly good feed, however I did capture some which have turned out well.

The session took place in two places – indoors (the photos above) and outdoors in a garden. Josh lay down on a blanket and loved the shapes of the leaves against the sky!

I also took the opportunity to grab a few shots of Josh with his mother too.

I do enjoy taking breastfeeding photos – as someone who has been breastfeeding babies/toddlers for nearly four years now, I know how special it is.. and I also know how easy it is to not have any photos of that time at all. It’s so easy to forget to and then it is too late.

It was lovely to meet Josh and his mother Suzi – Josh is a very well-behaved and extremely cute little man who gave me the biggest smiles!

Tandem nursing session with Jessica

Last Monday I had the privilege of photographing Jessica, and her two gorgeous children C (4 months) and T (3 years). Jessica is breastfeeding both her children, and wanted some nursing photos to look back on in the future.

I breastfed both my children (B to almost 2 years when pregnancy complications forced me to wean her, and I am still breastfeeding C at 15 months) and I am a strong supporter of extended breastfeeding, so nursing photos are something I really enjoy doing and can understand, and I look forward to doing more in the future. It’s something nursing mothers often overlook and later regret not having photos of.

Anyway, on with the photos! For obvious reasons I’m not going to post any revealing nursing photos directly here to my blog as they may not be suitable for viewing in a work setting, however you can view the entire gallery here:

    All were taken with natural light on a bed with white sheets and a white wall – so I didn’t even need any of my studio set up!

    Here are a few safe-for-work photos of her beautiful children and one nursing photo:
