A few mothers wrote to me to say how they’d struggled to breastfeed and resorted to formula, and that seeing the images had stirred up a lot of emotions around their own journey and buried feelings of inadequacy. I was inspired by their honesty but also saddened that any mother would feel shame around her path.

I never set out for the project to be some sort of ‘breast is best’ campaign, I just want to help the women who do nurse to feel confident coming out from the shadows. I’m also working on capturing a series of formula-fed babies, too, to show all ways of providing nourishment are selfless and full of love.
