World Breastfeeding Week – Nadia & Rory’s weening session

As World Breastfeeding Week draws to a close, I wanted to share some of the portraits I captured of my dear friend Nadia & her son Rory as she weened him from breastfeeding. Though it was a difficult transition for her, she has never shied away from publicly and proudly providing her child with food produced by her body. She has never viewed it as a sexual act, but one as natural as breathing. In those intimate moments – as they gazed into each other’s eyes – their bond grew as mother and child. This motherly act is the reason women have breasts: to feed their offspring. Check out their beautiful & intimate session below.
