WELCOME TO the Jennifer mehling photography blog. I'M A CHILD OF CHRIST, WIFE, MOM, STORY TAKER, LOVER OF coffee, daisies, SUNSETS AND ALWAYS UP FOR A GOOD CAMPING TRIP.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of once again capturing the sweet miracle of a mother’s nurturing their babies. I feel so blessed to be able to offer this gift to other mothers who share in the love of providing the most natural nutrition to their baby. I feel like there’s been positive movement in the world of #naturalizebreastfeeding! This was my second time shooting these beautiful mothers for FREE! That’s right for FREE! Please see the link below from my first session to learn more about why I am doing these for FREE.
In the big picture of the milky way I know very little! I only know that in the few 8 months that I was able to nurse my daughter and only child, I will always look back at those memories and cherish them forever! The sad thing about my journey is that I really have nothing to show her when she’s older or to look at myself to remember. Pictures always help, as in time the images in our head most definitely fade. If I can change this for other mothers, just by offering them this opportunity, it makes all my time spent worth it! I think we photograph so many other important life moments why not capture this one too?
I am not that an expert just because I nursed my daughter. That is not my gift!
I did get to meet a wonderful advocate and mother who is a Certified Lactation Educator Counselor and a co-founder of the group ‘The Milky Way’. The link for that group:
There are so many other wonderful places to turn if you need help with lactation. These are a few:
So far only a few testimonials have come in for this post. I will be sure to update and add if some of these beautiful mothers are inspired to share more after seeing their photos or reading someone else’s story. My portrait events are about capturing the beauty and honoring these mothers, so I love hearing their stories!
