Here is the sixth photo set for the Babes & Boobs project, a pro-public breastfeeding photo essay I wanted to personally start up in hopes of persuading society to normalize and not criticize breast feeding, as well as hoping to change the future for expecting moms.
This set was less of a documentary, and more of a personal photo shoot for mother Holley and baby Kalani. Both are such natural, free spirited people whose ideas on breastfeeding go as far and wide as their love for the outdoors! When I walked up, Kalani was just striding along the small ponds of the Asian Garden, naked, and enjoying every bit of fresh air and sunshine peeping through the trees. The bond that these two shared was one I’ve never seen before - Kalani would run off to a distance most mothers would panic about, but would stop, turn around, and sign something like “swimming” or “run” and Holley would sign or speak back. Even at 1 1/2 years old, she would just pause and listen to what her mother says back and would go no further. It was extraordinarily fascinating!
I didn’t get to interview Holley, but she gave me some wisdom on her ideas on public breastfeeding.
Holley: “I breastfeed in public to empower other women. To show that it’s natural and normal. To help expose people to breastfeeding in hopes that it won’t be seen as obscene, disgusting, or shameful. To show people that they cannot impose their own standards of “modesty” onto my personal body. Because I’ve had women thank me for being brave, when it shouldn’t be an act of bravery. But honestly? I breastfeed wherever, whenever, because the needs of my child come before those of s grown adult that can turn their damn head in any direction they please.”

Here is the fifth photo set for the Babes & Boobs project, a pro-public breastfeeding photo essay I wanted to personally start up in hopes of persuading society to normalize and not criticize breast feeding, as well as hoping to change the future for expecting moms.
These were shot during The Big Latch On event that was held in Piedmont Park, Atlanta, GA. It was incredible to meet all of these wonderful ladies and babies and watch them nurse all around the park!
I ended up doing a little interview with one of the mommies (Payal Tello) who was tandem nursing a set of twin girls (Nadia & Miraya)! She had mentioned that it wasn’t until this year that she felt comfortable and proud to breastfeed her babies in public.
Me: “So when was it that you felt okay to begin nursing in public and why?”
Payal: “The first time was when I was on a plane headed to Puerto Rico and it was sort of a win-win situation for me because nobody could see me, but yet I was in a public place. What got me to the point of feeling comfortable to nurse in public was by surrounding myself in support groups and online communities and understanding that I’m not doing anything to be ashamed of. By doing that and by seeing other women do it and post about it sort of boosted my confidence and made me realize that what I’m doing SHOULD be shared with others. It definitely helped that my friends and family, especially my husband, supported me and continues to do so.”
She also mentioned “I don’t think PROUD has been a word to describe my experience with nursing in public until The Big Latch On Event!”
Payal has her own blog/pro-NIP Facebook page that you should check out! It’s especially interesting to see her stories because she isn’t only nursing one baby, but twins! - https://www.facebook.com/twinmommy101
