What Does Breastfeeding Look Like? Suzie Blake Captured Them Beautifully

Related Articles

These are real breastfeeding pictures from all around the globe, captured beautifully by Suzie Blake. These photos includes –  breastfeeding newborn, women breastfeeding, breastfeeding in public, a breastfeeding mother.

Suzie Blake, a professional photographer was tired of seeing unrealistic photographs of women breastfeeding, so she took a photo of herself breastfeeding her baby, posted it on Facebook, and asked if other women would like to be photographed in the same way. She was surprised with responses and so the photography project ‘What Does Breastfeeding Look Like?’ began!

She said, “In the media, there is a distinct lack of authenticity in images of women breastfeeding. Most photos are highly stylized, airbrushed and unrealistic; many are sheer fantasy. Whether it is the angelic mother in her clinical white perfection or some model on the front of a fashion magazine. I’m tired of images that fail to show the realities of breastfeeding for most women. This project is about portraying breastfeeding in all its beautiful messiness. This is about tired eyes and no makeup. This is about puke on your shoulder and toys on the floor. This is about empowering women. This is about the amazing thing that only we, the women humans of this earth, can do; sustain another humans life with our own”.
