I have to admit, coming up with the title for this post made me giggle quite a bit but there was no better title than the one that was chosen. It was actually in the “NYC Badass Breastfeeders” Facebook community that the idea – of what I’ll be explaining in a bit – came up and I was down for it as soon as I read it.
As you all know for the past 7 months I’ve been working in our NYC Breastfeeding World project, although we managed to photograph 35 moms during Fall 2014 I still have 15 more to go. So if you’d like to participate (and you haven’t worked with Alegares Photography before) then this is your opportunity to do your bit in helping normalize and promote breastfeeding.
Coming back to the main reason of this post…
A couple of “Badass breastfeeders of NYC” and myself would like to capture a creative photo of 10-12 nursing moms in a very traditional place of NYC, I was actually thinking of doing it in two different places, Times Square and Sheeps Meadow – Central Park (or a lovely terrace, this last one is yet to be decided).
The idea of this shot is to capture a group of moms all nursing their little ones together, the babies can be as young as newborns and as old as you are comfortable nursing. Mothers and babies from all ethnic backgrounds and nationalities are welcomed (the more the merrier).
If you would be willing to participate in this creative breastfeeding photo session please fill out the form below. The session will take place on Saturday June 6th and Sunday June 7th before sunset, between 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Please note that these are the only weekend dates available due to my busy photography schedule. Once you sign up for the free photo session you will receive an online welcome packet explaining more about our NYC’s Breastfeeding World Project and what to expect from your session.
We are currently fully booked for this session. Thanks for your interest.
Be sure to join us in our social media accounts to be up to date with the progress of our project!
