When my oldest was about a year old, I considered, for a little while, becoming an IBCLC because I so appreciated the help I had gotten when I needed breastfeeding help, and wanted to give back to other moms. Though I didn’t go down that path very far, for a number of years I was a volunteer breastfeeding counselor with a local peer counseling organization called Nursing Mothers’ Council. Through that work, I met the wonderful women of LC Home Visits, a group of local IBCLCs, several of whom volunteer their time with NMC in addition to having their own private lactation consultant practices. When LC Home Visits reached out about getting new headshots for their website, I was so thrilled to get to work with them!
With ten lactation consultants to photograph individually in addition to their group shots, we got started with those who arrived first, since some of them live very far afield! We even squeezed in (ha — pun totally intended 🙂 ) a very silly shot indeed. This headshot session was so much fun, and I am so pleased to share some of my favorites from our time together:
