Natasha was quietly confident, this being her second child. She knew what to expect, and what to try. This was the first time we’d met but she didn’t have any hesitations about being photographed and just got on with the business at hand: providing nourishment to her newborn son. I have many beautiful images of her that I’d created in the short time we had together, but I love this one the most.

This is another breastfeeding portrait I took for my personal project Nourish. I’m still figuring it out, and while I know I want to document both breastfeeding and bottle feeding parents, the whole picture will only become clear as I create more images. So please get in touch with me if you’d like to be photographed as part of this project.
