Breastfeeding Beach Session- Kelly Janseen Photography
One of my favorite traditions I started with Graham was taking professional breastfeeding photos around 6 months. Kelly is am amazing photographer! She can anyone look like a goddess. We have taken many photo sessions with her where i was sure she couldn't possibly have captured anything work framing and yet she sends me dozens of amazing photos!
Breastfeeding was a journey for me and never easy. Isla had tongue and lip tie issues. We had that corrected in the early days but teaching her how to latch correctly took some time. Ultimately, we ended up having a wonderful breastfeeding relationship. She self weaned just before her second birthday. Being the second I was sure she was going to breeze a breastfeed. After all, I had already done it right? I ended up tandem nursing Graham and Isla and the journey was anything but boring. From dealing with latch issues, to hormone issues there was always something. That said I wouldn't trade that time with them... or not having to wash bottles 24/7.
