I am so excited (and honored) to be a part of the Breastfeeding Coalition of San Joaquin County's photo contest this year. I love how they bring support to our community and help empower women by normalizing breastfeeding. Nursing has been such a beautiful gift for me and my three children - I'm going on 6 1/2 years of nursing total. Can you believe it?!! At times it feels like an overwhelming gift to give, but I think that's why breastfeeding is so beautiful. We give when we are sore, and exhausted, when we are sick, when we just don't want to. We find the strength to keep giving. And in return? We get so much trust, and love, and adoration. And JOY. Those moments of complete bliss. When you want to do nothing but cuddle and nurse your babe. They make it all worth it.
Mary Humphrey Photography is contributing five FREE "Mommy & Me Nursing Sessions" to those who would like to get involved in this project. Each session will include five digitals in a private gallery, and a 5x7 of their favorite photo! Celebrate your journey, enter the contest, and empower other women. <3
UPDATE - ALL FIVE SESSIONS HAVE BEEN TAKEN. THANK YOU EVERYONE!
