It brings us great joy to announce that this year our efforts to “Spreading the Breastfeeding Love” have brought us far.
Just as previous years we will be hosting our annual most iconic and beloved Big Latch On events in Times Square, Central Indiana, Martha’s Vineyard and …… this 2017….. we’re bringing it to: Seattle, Washington!.
Thanks to the countless hours of voluntary work from my amazing Dream Team and our local lead volunteers as well as the support of the companies that contribute to our events, we were able to add another Big Latch On location. But that’s not the only good news…
Louisiana, are you ready for us?
Earlier today I got on a very important phone call, I had the pleasure of talking to Jacob Breaux, from JacobBreaux Photography. What started as a hobby in his teen years quickly turned into a passion and now, a profession. In the past 6 years, Jacob has perfected his breathtaking pictures. With varying subjects, he loves making each picture more exciting than the previous one.
A few months ago, Jacob held a breastfeeding photo session for one of the local moms in the his area. After some planning, they met and worked on producing a beautiful breastfeeding session. Once he posted the final results on his Instagram and other social media accounts, he felt shocked by how much support and encouragement one image produced.
He was instantly hooked.
He loved seeing the happy faces of the families. But when he realized how important empowering the new nursing mother he had just photographed, his attention caught immediately. Now he suddenly understood the ‘normalizing breastfeeding’ movement, and decided to join by giving back his talent to his amazing Louisiana community.
Breastfeeding World is coming to Louisiana this 2017!
After talking with Jacob over the phone, I knew fit our goals perfectly, and asked him to join our team of Coast-to-Coast Breastfeeding World Photographers.
We are extremely happy to announce that Breastfeeding World + Jacob Breaux Photography have united efforts in “sharing the breastfeeding love”. Together we will gift a few Louisiana moms a group photo session.
Our First Ever Breastfeeding World/Jacob Breaux Photo Session takes place in St. Martinsville, LA, at 5pm:
1898 Old Spanish Trail Hwy S, St Martinville, Louisiana.
(It is the first gravel road on the left past Spanish Lake Truck & Casino Plaza on 182 coming from Cade).
Jacob has requested attire as white dress with a flower head band, babies natural, and all ages welcomed.
For Breastfeeding World is important to showcase the beauty of breastfeeding through the art of photography. But as photographers we love to tell stories through our images. Just like in previous years, we will be publishing with the Louisiana Mamas breastfeeding journeys from the shoot.. Please make sure you pre-register for our photo session and answer all the questions.
Do you know any more nursing mommies interested in participating? Let them know of our upcoming Louisiana Breastfeeding World’s Photo Session and stay tuned in our FB event as well!
