"Want to do a breastfeeding shoot?"
This shoot with Alli AKA @thriftedqueen was a super last minute thing we did towards the end of last year. It was a gorgeous day and I posted on my stories, "Such a beautiful day. It's a shame I don't have a session tonight." Alli responded, "Pick Me! Pick Me!" I immediately got inspired. That happens a lot though, when Alli responds to random stories or messages and I get an idea.
I immediately texted her: Want to do a breastfeeding shoot?
The day crept up on me faster than I'd realized and I already had pedicure appointments with my friend who was very much 8 months pregnant. We finished up and I made the mad dash to the beach to catch the last few bits of the sunset.
Again, I texted: Alright we'll have 15 minutes left of sunlight so let's get there, whip your boob out, and start feeding. Down?
*Alli is always excited and v easy to work with, if you couldn't tell*
So we got to the beach and jumped out of our cars. It was windy and a bit chilly but we pushed through. We ran down to the beach, threw off the outer garments, and got to shooting. As you scroll through the photos, you can see how quickly it got dark out but I'm sooo glad we were able to take advantage of this beautiful night because those cotton candy skies reminded me of the then-most-current Taylor Swift Album: LOVER. And I couldn't be happier with these photos.
Enjoy your scroll and at the end of these, enjoy a little message from my heart plus outfit details 💛
