Miracle Milk Stroll | Lehigh Valley Family Photographer

This weekend I was asked to photograph The Miracle Milk Stroll, an event organized by our local Motherbaby Naturals community. The Stroll took place at Sand Island Park in Bethlehem on Saturday to raise awareness and solidarity for the human milk donation cause, helping babies that could benefit from mommy milk. 

Human milk saves lives.
 

The Miracle Milk Stroll is a project of the Best for Babes Foundation. Best for Babes is the only mainstream, independent non­-profit dedicated to changing the cultural perception of breastfeeding and human milk and to removing the barriers that prevent millions of moms annually from realizing their personal feeding goals.

Our local host was Kiera Lichtenwalner, owner of the amazing Bethlehem shop which curates quality products that support natural living and parenting, offers doula services, as well as breastfeeding and babywearing support. If you haven't stopped in to the Motherbaby Naturals shop, make sure to check it out-  I am never disappointed with the selection of natural skin care products, cloth diapers, wooden toys, and Kiera's very friendly assistance with babywearing!

So many wonderful local business supported the Miracle Milk Stroll with donations- from baked goods to felted art to Lularoe leggings! It was a lovely morning of yoga, community building, babywearing, breastfeeding, and family time at the park! So many awesome mamas in our community who are donating milk to babies in need! I feel truly honored to be a part of such a supportive group of mamas in the Lehigh Valley. 

 

 

Now Booking Motherhood Mini Sessions | Lehigh Valley & Bucks County Portrait Photographer

I am so excited to offer these Motherhood Mini Sessions in Bethlehem, PA! I have been dreaming them up for a few months now as I have been longing to capture more intimate and emotive images of mothers and their little ones. While I usually shoot outdoors or in client's homes, I fell in love with the Fox and Finch natural-light studio. It is in an old textile factory and I love the rustic feel inside, it is abounding with northern exposure light, and we have their amazing selection of vintage furniture at our disposal.  

These sessions are meant to be candid, classic, and simple. Picture yourself snuggled up on a vintage setee with your babes as I capture your hands linked, your noses nuzzled, their little heads resting on your chest. I can't wait to bring this vision to life for mothers in our area! Perfect opportunity for capturing breastfeeding babies, or even babywearing or maternity portraits. 

To book your session just contact me through the CONTACT tab above and I will get you a contract and invoice right away!

Never be afraid that your child won't cooperate for a short session to cuddle you like this. This session was shot in this very busy 2-year olds playroom and he didn't want to sit still for a minute. We still managed to get a lot of amazing connection portraits. Patience and engaging your child in a story, or snuggling, or talking about their favorite activities can hold their attention for just long enough to capture their affection. They LONG for a mother's attention all day long. Think of this as an opportunity to sit with them, and talk with them, cuddle them, hold them close and forget all about me. I will gently guide you into the best light and let you connect with your child.

I am in love with this moment. I love that her little guy was shirtless so we could really let the light highlight his arms and that skin-to-skin connection with mama.
