I have a 3 year old (yesterday! Happy birthday, Baby!) and a 2 1/2 month old, so silence is not something I’m familiar with as of late; but, my days are filled with moments of peace. I am exclusively nursing our baby, and those times, no matter where we are or what is going on around us, are blissful moments of peace and relative quiet as we connect with each other and disengage the rest of the world.
It seems “breast feeding sessions” are all the rage right now – but they’re not quite my style. In fact, these images are the first we’ve ever taken of me nursing our daughter. Seriously. Not even a quick snap with a cell phone. While I feel proud that this is something we are able to share and I support all other breast feeding moms, I also feel that for us, it is a private moment. Still, there was no better way for me to photograph “peace” than these moments.
A special thank you to my husband for pushing the shutter from where I instructed him.
Next, please hop over to Michele and check out her “silence/peace” image.
