This mama was so filled with love, so brimming with light and happiness for her babe, and it all flowed out so beautifully from the moment I met her. I've always known this: deep, real, true love photographs beautifully. Look at how these two work together, like perfectly made puzzles. There's absolutely nothing like it.
A few minutes into our session, Mama let me know that she'd recently lost her shame. Laughing through the story, she said she'd breast fed in public, at work, without a nursing cover. What a joy, to let go! To let your babe and your body take precedence over shame. She laughed again and snuggled her baby tight. So maybe that's what made this mama so beautiful. This is my body, and it created this amazing babe. Absolutely nothing shameful about that.
Without shame, this mama was able to fully express her joy at being deeply, perfectly bonded to her little nugget.
