The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends a baby is exclusively breastfed for the first 6+ months of life (read more about their recommendations here.) If you are exclusively nursing, that equates to approximately 540 hours spent breastfeeding. That’s a lot! Dedicating this amount of time to nursing is obviously a massive commitment, and your perseverance deserves to be applauded. You go mama! Breastfeeding also creates a unique and intimate bond between you and your babe, a bond that can never be recreated. As each baby and their feeding journey is unique, this means that your experience and bond is truly once-in-a-lifetime! What better way to honor your dedication and this special bond than through taking Colorado breastfeeding photos of you and your little one?
Colorado breastfeeding photos are exactly what they sounds like – a photo session of you feeding your baby, inside your Colorado home. While mamas often choose to have their photos captured within the nursery, we can use any spot in your home that has beautiful light (think big windows!) and sentimental meaning. What if you don’t want someone in your home? There are several beautiful natural light studios that we can work out of within Colorado Springs and Denver.
If the weather is warm, and if you’re up for it, I also recommend doing your session outside during golden hour! Colorado’s golden sunset light, combined with its tall grasses and mountain views can create a truly ethereal, natural, and beautiful aesthetic for your breastfeeding photos.
2. Wear something that is easy to nurse in and neutral in color.
3. Allow yourself to become emotional.
If you have been breastfeeding your baby, I strongly recommend getting a Colorado breastfeeding photo session done prior to your baby’s weaning. Let’s capture and commemorate all of the hard work, dedication, joy, and intimacy between you and your child!

**Side Note – I am not here to judge how you feed your baby, you are the BEST mama or caregiver for your baby, and you are doing your best! A healthy, happy, growing baby who is LOVED is the most important thing! Breastfeeding may not be for everyone, and just because your journey may not have gone as planned, does not mean that you have failed or should be shamed. Always remember that. I am here to support you in whatever way I can!**
