Last year I’ve started a new personal project, Nourish, intended to document and celebrate the many ways we feed our babies. The project is still in it’s infancy, but I already have many wonderful images I’m yet to share, so even through I feel like there’s still a long way to go before I’m going to get anywhere, I want to start sharing what I have.

This image was taken in St.Petersburg, Russia last summer. Tatiana is my friend from law school, way back when, and I haven’t seen her in years and years! She happened to have a brand new baby on her hands when I was visiting, and I’ve asked to come along and take some photographs of her. It was really lovely to catch up with her and also create some wonderful images of her breastfeeding her daughter.

Want to become part of Nourish? Or know someone who might be interested in taking part?

I’m looking for breastfeeding and bottle-feeding mothers and fathers of babies under one year of age, including same-sex parents, to take part in it. Please get in touch with me for more details.
