Our Lead Team

The master mind behind this amazing project and the lead photographer. She specializes in family, children and newborn portraiture, you can find her at Alegares Photography. She is also a first time mom to a beautiful baby girl, she was so concerned about her pregnancy and delivery that breastfeeding was something that she never really thought about, it took her by surprise all of the discomfort it caused and she was ready to give it up but fortunately she had the support from both her mother and sister who encouraged her to keep going.

He is Alexia's amazing brother and our awesome videographer! He is in charge of post processing all of our video footage although you might not have seen him during all of the photo sessions he is a very important ‘behind the scenes’ guy. With his creativity and his passion for artistic expression he is able to create breath taking videos that will help us promote and expand our goals widely.

Alexia's beautiful momma and the best of the best at brainstorming ideas. She was the first one to hear about the "NYC's Breastfeeding World" project and has helped us put all this together. She's Alexia's second in command and the best support system a new mother can wish for. By the way, she breastfed four of her five children! Why not all five you may ask...? Don't worry, we will tell you about her breastfeeding journey soon!

This is the hands-on team, this group of mothers got to know each other through their common passion for breastfeeding and crunchy parenting. Alexia invited them to join her in her quest of spreading the Breastfeeding Love through Breastfeeding World. In 2015 Together Lisa and Alexia organized the first iconic NYC's Big Latch On in Times Square. Soon after both Lauren and Samantha joined Alexia's growing online community as writers and then editors of the site. In August 2016 this group of ladies came together and organized three major events Breastfeeding Celebrations & Big Latch Ons in three different cities around the USA bringing together a total of 700+ breastfeeding supporters.
