2015 Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project – Wrap Up {Boca Raton Newborn Photographer}

What an amazing week!

As you know, this week has been World Breastfeeding Week and it is also the week of the Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project, where our goal is to bring awareness and to help normalize breastfeeding in public.  This week, photographers around the world participated in this movement (created by Leilani Rogers, Photographer) where we photograph moms breastfeeding in our area. I photographed local moms here in Boca Raton, Florida at the gorgeous Mizner Park. It was so much fun meeting these moms and it was such an honor to photograph and have them participate in this with me.

This year, I decided I wanted to create a theme for my images. I wanted to show that yes, things change when we become mothers. Maybe our lives revolve a lot around our children now, maybe we spend a lot of our time in yoga pants and with our hair up in a bun (guilty!), maybe we don’t get to do all the “adult” fun things we used to do before becoming a mom… Our lives change instantly when we become mothers – and while it is a beautiful, wondrous thing, it’s so easy to lose ourselves with this new identity that suddenly seems to manifest overnight. So I asked these moms to make themselves beautiful! To dress up and have fun! I wanted these moms to feel good and I wanted to capture them breastfeeding in an elegant way. I wanted to show that we can integrate motherhood into our identity and still continue our lives – breastfeeding is not something that needs to be confined to the home! We also go out, dress up, hang out with friends and breastfeed! As I photographed these 9 stylish, fashionable women – who also happen to be breastfeeding mothers – I was in awe of how happy and beautiful they looked – all  dressed up and breastfeeding in heels, haha! It seemed clear to me… breastfeeding is glamorous! I am sure just by looking at these women, you’ll agree!

Many breastfeeding mothers live in fear of nursing their babies out in public, for fear of what someone might say. This fear negatively impacts breastfeeding mothers and decreases the length that a mother will breastfeed. Currently, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding for at least the first 6 months of life, and then along with foods for the first year. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends breastfeeding the first 2 years because of decreased risk for obesity, diabetes, and more. However, despite the well known health benefits of breastfeeding, the 2013 Breastfeeding Report Card by the CDC shows that in Florida only 29% of mothers are exclusively breast-feeding at 3 months. And by 6 months, it decreases to only 10% of mothers. With the increasing stories of mothers being asked to leave establishments for breastfeeding as well as being banned on social media for sharing breastfeeding images, it’s not hard to see why breastfeeding rates decrease. In Lansinoh’s 2012 breastfeeding study, 40% of mothers listed breastfeeding in public as their top worry about breastfeeding. The goal of the Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project is to support breastfeeding mothers to change that.

In the United States, women have the right to breastfeed anywhere they are legally allowed to be. It is illegal to ask a mother to leave or to ask her to cover up. A mother has the right to breastfeed her child comfortably, as she sees fit.

This year, I photographed 9 beautiful Boca Raton women nursing their babies for the Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project. And as a breastfeeding mother myself, I would be remiss if I didn’t participate. So my awesome assistant and I took my little guy out and did our own little mini shoot. I am thrilled that not only was I able to photograph nursing mothers, but I could participate as well. As a mother who breastfed 3 children of her own and as a business woman that photographs new mothers all the time, this is breastfeeding a topic that is very important to me. When I was a first time mom 5 years ago, I was extremely anxious about breastfeeding in public. I did what I could to nurse at home, but if my baby was hungry while we were out, I felt I needed to run out to the car to feed my newborn, no matter how hot it was in there. It was very challenging with a crying, hungry baby. We had several difficulties breastfeeding as it was, and nursing in public and the fear of what others might say just added another challenge. It took several months to work up the courage to nurse in public. I started meeting up with a group of new mothers at the Hollywood Birth Center and I got to meet other moms like me. We talked about new-mom issues and then afterwards we would walk down the street for lunch together. And there, I saw how the more experienced moms did it: some covered, some didn’t. Some nursed in a sling, others using a clever method of wearing 2 shirts so as not to expose any skin. You could hardly tell some were even eating! Seeing these women gave me courage! And once I finally started nursing in public, I never went back to my car or hid from my friends. I realized I had every right to feed my baby. That was 5 years ago. Last year I gave birth to my 3rd baby and I am currently breastfeeding him wherever I go – even while I’m photographing! It’s a beautiful and natural thing. I photograph new and expecting moms all the time. I want to help encourage and inspire moms like them — moms like me! — to breastfeed with confidence from the beginning.

So much is being done to support breastfeeding mothers, but we still have a long way to go. They need to feel supported and encouraged. That’s why Leilani Rogers created this project. The more we see mothers breastfeeding in public, the more accepted it will become. I have been overwhelmed with the support I’ve received on my own Facebook page regarding this project. I hope it will encourage mothers who breastfeed to do so in public with more confidence. Mothers should not feel like they need to go to to their hot cars or to the bathroom or to stay home to breastfeed their babies. They need support and encouragement to go out and breastfeed in public comfortably.

Since the Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project went viral last year and the topic of breastfeeding in public was put in the spotlight, celebrities have joined the conversation and actress Alyssa Milano, Giselle Bunchen have come out in support of breastfeeding and have shared “brelfies” (a breastfeeding selfie) of themselves breastfeeding their babies. Actress Olivia Wilde was also featured in Glamour magazine feeding her son Otis. And most recently, model Nicole Trunfio was featured on the front cover of ELLE magazine breastfeeding her baby boy Zion, as well. It is evident that the Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project has had a significant impact on our community and it is our plan to continue to bring awareness until it is no longer necessary and women all over the world can simply feed their babies without fear of being shamed or humiliated.

After the Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project last year, the conversation of breastfeeding in public, really erupted.  All of these things together are what start to change the public perception of breastfeeding. I know it’s not something that will change overnight, but my hope is that perhaps by the time my daughters are grown, this won’t be an issue they will have to face.

I am beyond thrilled about the media attention this movement has received and I am just humbled by all the wonderful comments our project has gotten. I am so proud to have been a part of this cause and helping to promote breastfeeding in public. We have contributed to this international conversation and clearly we have made an impact.

I want to thank all the moms and their little ones who let me photograph them for this – it was truly an honor to have represented South Florida moms and families. With out you, I would not have been able to bring my perspective and my ideas for this project to life.

A big thank you again to Leilani Rogers, who without her, this project would never have happened. I have nothing but gratitude for her for coming up with this incredible idea and for letting us be a part of it. Not only has this project brought attention to a cause that is near to my heart (literally and figuratively, LOL) she has also created a wonderful group of world-wide photographers that participated in this that I’m excited to call my friends and colleagues. I thank you and I look forward to rocking this project again next year.

I’m also participating in a blog circle where you can read more about the photographers that participated in this project. We have linked to each other’s blog posts sharing our stories about the PBAP.

Much, much love.

Day 7: Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project 2015 Part II {Boca Raton Newborn Photographer}

From August 1-7 photographers around the world have been sharing photographs of moms breastfeeding in public. We are not compensated for these photographs – this is done because we are passionate about the right for moms to breastfeed in public wherever they are. I’m featuring these beautiful mamas on my page for the Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project. To view the entire project, you can check it out here. This week, photographers around the world have been participating in the Public Breastfeeding Awareness Project (created by Leilani Rogers, Photographer) where we photographed moms breastfeeding in our area. I photographed local moms here in Boca Raton, Florida at the gorgeous Mizner Park. It was so much fun meeting these moms and it was such an honor to photograph and have them participate in this with me. I’ll be sharing their photos this week here on my website and on my Facebook page!

Meet Jill and her one year old nursling Hollis, “I’m a 37 year old, first time, stay at home mom (and temporarily retired high school teacher) who became passionate about breastfeeding after taking a Bradley birthing class. With every roadblock in the book and a baby who wasn’t gaining weight, we had to supplement, but we continued nursing, and at 10.5 months, made it back to breastmilk only! It will be a full year at the end of July and I’m so excited. Although I was nervous to breastfeed in public, thankfully we’ve never had anything worse than a few stares and odd looks, and the experience as a whole has been one more incredible part of the puzzle that is motherhood, and made me a stronger, braver person.”
