Model Call: The Reality of Breastfeeding

I have been working on a personal breastfeeding/chestfeeding photo project which depicts the range of experiences that come with breastfeeding/chestfeeding. As this is an ongoing project, I am always looking for  parents to participate in this project.

Join the Movement: Be a Part of the Groundbreaking Reality of Breastfeeding/Chestfeeding Photo Project

I am looking for parents in the Rochester, NY/Western New York Area who would be interested allowing me to document their journey. This would be a long-term project and would involve at least a one-day commitment (with the possibility of more) and open lines of communication throughout the year. The goal of this project would be to depict the wide range of breastfeeding/chestfeeding experiences, help inspire other parents, normalize breastfeeding/chestfeeding, and most of all, let parents know they are not alone in their struggles.

Breastfeeding/Chestfeeding is hard and it’s not always glamorous, but it’s also pretty damn beautiful. That is what I want to focus on.

I am looking for breastfeeding/chestfeeding parents of a wide range of ethnicities and family structures who fit one of the following categories:

  • A breastmilk donor
  • An exclusively pumping 
  • A tandem nursing 
  • An adoptive parent who has induced or will induce lactation
  • A parent who is about to undergo surgery or with cancer that is still breastfeeding/chestfeeding or planning on breastfeeding/chestfeeding in the hospital
  • A mom that is nursing a child through an illness (not the common cold or flu)
  • A parent nursing their hospitalized infant or child (NICU or PICU)
  • An extended breastfeeding parent (child over 4)
  • Two-parent family sharing breastfeeding
  • any other scenarios I may not have thought of
