Timbra Wiist of Landslide Photography will offer a workshop on Photographing Your Baby today from 12 noon until 1pm. Take a look at some of Timbra’s work at her project site, Bellies and Beyond: “the journey of motherhood.” This a great session for moms, dads, grandparents and favorite aunts! Bring your camera — and your favorite photographic subject. Babies can be any age, awake or asleep!
While you’re here, enjoy the photographs on display and consider adding one of your own. Landslide Photography is hosting a friendly competition of nursing photos throughout this year’s Breastfeeding Cafe. Bring in your own snapshots and portraits of nursing babes and tots to enter — we want to see everyday shots of nursing families. If your entry is selected you will receive a photo session with Timbra. Your entry should be a breastfeeding photo but the photo session could be with family, your expectant belly, maybe a sitting with sisters or your own mother. Perhaps you have a sentimental photo of your own nursing days to share!
Good nutrition begins with breastfeeding but doesn’t end there! Please join us from 4-5 pm when we will have a registered dietitian (RD) on hand to answer questions on nutrition. Taking care of mother and child is always a concern, but feel free to ask questions about diet at any age. Throughout the month we will have a registered dietitian at the ready every Wednesday afternoon. Ask an RD!
Today’s events are all in the Cafe so drop in and join the conversation!
