Genuine Photos Of Motherhood In All Its Beauty

Photographer Susie Black was sick of seeing unrealistic photos of women breastfeeding, so she took a photo of herself with her baby. Black posted it on the internet without any editing, and asked other women if they wanted to be photographed in the same way. Lots of women jumped at the chance, and soon this project was born.
