I’ve been shooting images of breastfeeding moms and their children for over a year now. It’s such a beautiful part of motherhood and I am committed to documenting it. The time when a child is so small, so dependent on us for every need – and especially the MOST basic one like food and shelter – it is gone so quickly. Children grow, they need us less and that’s both a blessing and a curse.
This very busy mama has 5 kiddos, and on top of all that she owns a successful children’s boutique resale shop. Betsy is the owner of Recycled Sally’s in Baraboo, Wisconsin, selling new and consignment clothing & accessories for infants, children, and women as well as toys, shoes, and nursery equipment. She also sells new baby products, like cloth diapers, BPA-free bottles, and baby wraps.
Running a successful business is no easy task, but in addition to being an entrepreneur, Betsy is also a breastfeeding mom. When her son needs to eat, he doesn’t know if she’s in the middle of helping customers – he just knows he’s hungry!
I’m proud to post these images to help celebrate World Breastfeeding Week!
