Vintage Breastfeeding Photos and Family Photos, Glasgow

Fiona Poliri is a vintage hair and make-up artist. I worked with her on her project to take photos of vintage styled breastfeeding mothers. This was to help promote breastfeeding and the help available to mothers who breastfeed. She held an event called Boobstock! in 2018. As part of this event she gave away the prize of a makeover and mini photoshoot. This glamorous Mum was the lucky winner. 

Although met with initial shyness from their very cute young son, we soon got going with the shoot and the photoshoot flowed well. Their oldest daughter was looking great, dressed up a yellow swirly dress to go along with the vintage theme makeover of her Mum.

The Mum of the family had been monitoring Fiona's Facebook page because she too is a breast feeder. The newest addition to the family was a beautiful young baby and was very intent on feeding. As other mums will know babies go through growth spurts where all they want to do is feed, which is perfectly natural. This therefore leant itself rather nicely to the session including some breastfeeding photos too. Baby was also dressed in a vintage matching style with a very cute baby bonnet. 

When we attempted some non-breastfeeding photos the wee one was having none of it! But Mum soon sorted the situation momentarily for a lovely family photo. 

Mum was wearing some very glamourous shoes. So I took a moment to get a snap of these too, whilst her daughter swirled on in her beautiful dress. 

On Mum's request we tried to take a non-breastfeeding photo of her youngest very, very cute baby daughter. We managed to do this - briefly - before the wee one soon told us that the growth spurt was still in full force.
