Celebrating Motherhood: The Gentle Symphony of Intimate Moments in Breastfeeding ‎

Photographer Trina Cary doesn’t have kids of her own yet, but she knows she definitely will one day, so in the meantime, she’s busy taking the most stunning photos of other moms with their babies. Her latest project, a breastfeeding session on the beach during a full moon, is so beautiful you’ll want to erase the definition of “beauty” from your dictionary and replace it with these photos.

Taken at Kawana Beach on Australia’s Sunshine Coast, the photographs show 14 women (many of them complete strangers) who came to the session with their babies in tow on the afternoon of March 2, with the sky covered in storm clouds and the full moon. glow. “Every time I get a group together, I’m amazed by their ability to become friends and accept each other so freely. I LOVE being a part of it,” Trina told POPSUGAR. “My goal is to empower and spread love throughout this world. We need less judgment and more acceptance.”

This particular session also seemed important to Trina because all of mothers’ differences come together in the name of breastfeeding her children. “I felt absolutely elated watching these mothers breastfeed (and not just newborns, there was a range of ages, a couple 18 months or older) and hearing their experiences, and realizing that for some of them it wasn’t easy . ” she said.

Due to the success of this session, Trina already has a few more breastfeeding sessions in the works and she would also love to do a photo shoot with bottle fed babies.

“I hope that when women see these images they smile and laugh, I hope that they can feel the love that radiates through these women. Strangers who became friends supporting and encouraging each other over one night feeding their little ones together,” she said. “I want the women of this world to come together. I want to create a powerful, raw, open and loving community in my photography business. If I can help women learn to love their stretch marks, their excess skin, their bumps and their bumps, I’ll do it!”
