🎉 Once again the Mayor of San Diego, Kevin Faulconer, has approved to publish our annual proclamation to celebrate this amazing day!
🔥 In 2015 close to 5,000 people took the pledge: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/7688902
EVENT THEMEWe are keeping it simple this year with the theme #FeedingGoals to represent our overreaching goal to support every family's desire to give their baby a health start in life. We have documented diverse variations of normal across the United States and have seen that breastfeeding looks different for everyone. We are advocates for all families regardless of the feeding style they choose, yet we focus our efforts on normalizing breastfeeding among mothers and in public.
PURPOSEWhy 6/27? This day will mark the 4 year anniversary of the launch of this project and the beginning of my journey as a professional Breastfeeding Portrait Photographer, only 4 years into my professional photography career. I am living my dream of going on an international photography tour.
I have created connections for our #NBFmamas to reach lactation peer support within their local communities. This tour collaborates with baby-friendly hospitals and local businesses represent the movement in their city by documenting breastfeeding families.
