  • Motherhood. All love begins and ends here. - Robert Browning, Poet

    Your newborn's tiny toes, your baby's sweet, innocent eyes, your toddler's toothless grin...  these are moments you'll want to remember forever. As a mother of 3 small children myself, I am absolutely passionate about documenting these moments that truly are so fleeting. I love capturing how perfectly babies fit in their mama's arms and how sweet and tiny they look snuggled up with dad. One day, when they are all grown, you'll want to remember how small they were and what your family looked like when you were all first getting to know each other. Like your wedding, the birth of your child is will be one of the most significant days in your life. It's a beautiful and wonderful time in your lives and it deserves to be documented. As a mother and as an artist, it thrills me to capture a family and to tell their story. It is truly my passion!

    Connie Granja Photography is a custom, full service photography studio specializing in maternity, newborn, and family portraiture. I strive to provide portraits that capture the essence of who you are; to capture you and your family as they are today so that years from now you can pass these images down to your children. I provide a carefully curated line of museum-grade albums, wall art and keepsake boxes. These will become the heirlooms that you can pass down for generations. These portraits will become your legacy.

2015 Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project – Glamorous Breastfeeding {Boca Raton Breastfeeding Photographer}

Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project 2015 - A movement to normalize breastfeeding in public. - Breastfeeding Mothers PBAP2015 - Connie Granja Photography - www.conniegranja.com

 

World Breastfeeding Week starts this Saturday! I am excited to announce I am participating in the 2015 Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project again! Last year birth photographer Leilani Rogers of Austin, TX started this world wide movement to connect professional photographers around the world to donate sessions to photograph breastfeeding mothers feeding their babies and toddlers around town. Our goal was to share our images on social media during World Breastfeeding Week to help bring awareness and to help normalize breastfeeding in public. Little did we know our little project brought so much awareness and instantly went viral, and we are hoping this year to make it even bigger and better!

This year, my theme for my images is “Glamorous Breastfeeding” and I photographed 9 stylish, fashionable women – who also happen to be breastfeeding mothers.

I am happy to share with you my first image in this week’s series – a group picture of all the moms, dads, wives, babies and children that participated! I am filled with so much pride in all of these people who came out to spend the morning with me and to share this special relationship with their littles.

I can’t tell you how much this project has truly impacted me. It’s amazing. Getting to know some of these moms, I realized that this project has not only encouraged the women who will view these images, but they also empower the women who participate in it.

When I asked for volunteers for the project, I asked moms to share their breastfeeding stories. I was incredibly touched by so many, I wish I could have photographed every one of them! I read stories of how one mom struggled to breastfeed from the beginning and are excited they finally “got it” now, 10 months later. One mom couldn’t breastfeed her older child and now with her new baby she felt ‘her dream had come true’ and has been able to breastfeed her without issues. Another mom has a child with severe food allergies and is breast milk is still his main source of nutrition at 15 months.  And the one that really stood out to me was the mom who struggled and was determined to breastfeed, despite disapproval from family, friends and random strangers.   The stories these moms shared really resonated with me. These women who were overcoming obstacles and pushing forward to give their children the best nutrition possible needed encouragement and positivity! I read  all of these amazing stories and I felt I needed to offer these women an opportunity to stand together with other moms just like them and breastfeed openly and proudly. I’m thrilled to empower them and to offer a wonderful experience to breastfeed without fear and to simply feed their babies.

The day before the shoot, I offered the participants if any of their husbands/significant others would like to join in, that they were welcome. I was thrilled to see dads and spouses supporting their wives. Support from our families is critical for breastfeeding. Without support, breastfeeding becomes a cause of stress instead of a chance to nourish, bond and connect with your baby. Spouses really play an important role in breastfeeding.

So excited to share this first image of the series with you – a group shot of these wonderful families! Stay tuned for tomorrow, where I’ll share more about one of these stunning mamas and her nursling!

ABOUT THE PUBLIC BREASTFEEDING AWARENESS PROJECT:
As a mother of 3 little ones myself and as a photographer that works closely with new and expecting mothers, I am extremely passionate about anything that motivates women and empowers mothers.

One of my most passionate causes has been to help mothers feel comfortable to breastfeed their little ones wherever they see fit. Despite the Florida law protects mothers from discrimination of breastfeeding in public, mothers are often shamed and humiliated when breastfeeding in public places, which then creates a stressful breastfeeding relationship between mothers and their babies, and oftentimes is a main reason that mothers stop breastfeeding completely. It is my mission to encourage mothers to breastfeed and help to normalize breastfeeding so mothers never feel ashamed for simply wanting to feed and nourish their babies.

Last year, I participated in The Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project started by Texas Photographer Leilani Rogers that took social media by storm and instantly went viral. Leilani started this movement where professional photographers around the world would participating in this event where we photograph moms breastfeeding in public. Our goal was to support and encourage each other and share our breastfeeding experiences, all the while helping to continue the conversation to normalize breastfeeding and helping to educate others on the misconceptions of breastfeeding in public. Photographers from all over the world donated their time and photographed women breastfeeding in public in their towns and we all agreed we would share and publish our images during World Breastfeeding Week August 1-7th. Our intent was to flood social media with our images to help normalize breastfeeding in public.

Little did we know what our small project would create! Within the first few days of World Breastfeeding Week, it was published my several online magazines, most prominently featured by the Huffington Post in the article “22 Candid Photos That Show How Beautiful Breastfeeding Really Is”, BabyCenter.com, TheStir.com and Redbook.com. It was amazing to have my work be part of this and to have our very own local Boca Raton moms featured in this worldwide platform. I am honored to contribute to this movement and to help mothers everywhere feed their children wherever they see fit, without fear of being shamed or discriminated against. Mothers and babies deserve better!

Limited Edition: Vintage Ice Cream Photo Session {Boca Raton Children Photographer}

For my daughter Mila’s 5th birthday this year, she wanted her birthday party theme to be her favorite thing in the world… ice-cream! (That’s my girl! I absolutely love ice-cream too!) As soon as she said it, I had visions of her 5th birthday pictures to be a sweet and airy vintage ice-cream social inspired… Ahhh! I couldn’t wait! And when we finally shot it, Mila and I had a BLAST… you can see her face in what I call the “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice-cream” picture! I’m sure that eating ice-cream and sweets played a big part in it! Too bad ice cream melts so fast, otherwise I’d be tempted to bribe everyone with it! LOL! I mean, who doesn’t love ice-cream?

UNC and Jordan Shoes Newborn Fan – Baby Boy EJ {Boca Raton Newborn Photographer}

I am so happy to be back from maternity leave and sharing some client sessions! This adorable little guy is EJ. He had the softest hair and the cutest dimple on his chin! It’s so amazing how my own little boy was this small just a few months ago and now he’s gotten so big! It’s amazing how time just flies!

It was so nice meeting EJ’s parents and chatting – they were so down to earth. Mom and Dad were just gorgeous – a dream to photograph! She’s a professional dancer and owns her own studio here in town. Dad is a huge UNC fan and also a big Jordan shoe lover, and they wanted to incorporate that into the session, which is awesome! I love incorporating personal aspects of my clients likes and preferences into a shoot. Makes it so much more meaningful and personal, I think. That, and I guess I just think it’s sweet when a guy wants his baby supporting his favorite team – I know for my husband it means so much!

It was so nice meeting you all! EJ is such a sweetheart!! Go Tarheels!

Are you expecting? I am now booking sessions for February – April 2015. Reserve your session today to make sure you have a spot on my calendar. Contact me today!
