As I was nursing her, I looked down and noticed she was grabbing my shirt with her little hand, pulling it over me as if to help me cover up. I thought it was pretty cute, so I reached over and picked up my phone to try and capture the moment with a picture.

It is the only picture I have of nursing. I did not photograph while nursing Sarah or Gabriel, and I did not end up nursing Caleb more than a week. So this picture is special to me, it's the only way I have to document such an important part of my life...such an accomplishment. You know what I mean if you've nursed and had trouble!
And I know it's often taboo to photograph such a thing. That's why I never have. It's really hard to capture it without it being too exposed...and some are ok with showing themselves nursing in a way that shows some skin! In fact, I don't mind seeing other women with tasteful nursing pictures that have a bit of breast exposed because I think it's a beautiful thing. But for me, I wasn't going to do that with my own self. :)
If you nursed, did you get a picture of it? Did you want to? Didn't want to? Wish you did but didn't? I'm curious how others feel.
