Bride Celebrates Wedding Day by Breastfeeding With Bridesmaids
One bride’s breastfeeding photos are stealing the show.
Jaime Riddell spent the morning of her wedding getting ready with her three best friends, who were serving as bridesmaids. But amidst the hair and makeup, the ladies — who each gave birth within a year of each other — made time to nurse their babies. And photographer Lindsay Palmer captured the whole thing.
“The photo ended up being an impromptu decision,” Riddell tells The Huffington Post. “We had been getting ready all morning, all of us casually nursing our babies when we really realized how awesome it was that we were all sharing in such an amazing milestone in our lives at the same time. We decided then that we wanted to get a photo of us together and our talented photographer had us all climb into the bed.”
“Looking at this picture now, I feel so blessed that we had this memory captured in a photo to always look back on,” Riddell says. “I have such a passion for breastfeeding awareness and support and I am so grateful that such a beautiful photo can be shared with others to really highlight the beauty in nursing your child.”
