I am looking for BF moms in central CT to build my photo portfolio. I am specifically looking for women of color (I have plenty of pale models thanks to our local natural parenting playgroup) with a nursling under 2 or any mother with a nursling under 6 weeks.

The session will be free of cost and I'll give you an 8X10 of one image in exchange for your time and a signed model release.

Please contact me if you are interested.

You can see my current portfolio via my siggy link.

Thanks.

Hi Stacie,

Well I'm in RI, I'm pale (well, tan since it's summer) and my son is 2 and a half but I just had to tell you that your breastfeeding photos actually brought a tear to my eyes. They are some of the most beautiful, pure images that I have ever seen. Thanks for sharing!

My shots of me nursing my twins are not exactly artistic since they are me holding the camera away from my body. Plus now I have to do a lot of refereeing to keep each from trying to hog both boobs.

And none of the twin mothers I know who tandem nurse seem to have time. Hmmm.

And thank you. I love shooting nurslings. ::

I always love to see nice nursing photos since I don't have any of me after 7+ years of breastfeeding. And with the twins I've asked dp several times to take photos but they always look, well... like I asked dp to take a photo.

But your photos aren't just photos, they are amazing.

Thanks Mumm.

One MDC mama (as pale as I am, alas) came down the other day and, despite the POURING rain we did a shoot. There are two pictures from it up: http://www.memoriesbystacie.com/blog...eyes-for-mama/

I just tried to email you but it was returned!

For some reason this is not letting me make a new post, only edit.

Stacie- I went to website and filled out the form on August 24th. I hope to hear from you! Thanks.
