When bad things turn into awesomeness!!!
A few weeks ago I was photographing at The Big Latch On event in Lexington. I met Sullivan's mom Lindsey, she was so sweet and I took just a few photos of her and sweet Sullivan as they nursed. Well the worst thing a photographer can experience happened: I somehow lost those photos. I reached out to all the moms whose photos were lost offering a free Milk Baby Mini Session. Surprisingly Lindsey was the only one who took me up on my offer. So we scheduled our session for Monday August 17, which happened to be Sullivan's 1st birthday!!!
Lindsey told me that she wasn't sure how much longer Sullivan was going to nurse and she was so excited to have these photos taken to commemorate their nursing journey. I imagine Lindsey will look at Sullivan today and see how big she has gotten in this last year. But in 10 years Lindsey will look at these photos and remember how tiny she was, how she fit so perfectly in her lap, how she would fall asleep in her arms after nursing in the morning. I so wish I had taken photos like these with my kiddos! Nursing in challenging, rewarding, frustrating, and full of love and I hope that Lindsey will look back and feel powerful for what she was able to do with her sweet girl. They have created a special bond that will never be broken!!
Thank you Lindsey for taking me up on my offer and welcoming me into your home! I loved every moment.
