At Milk & Baby, we like to use real breastfeeding and expecting moms for our photo shoots. We wanted you to get to know them. Here's a little bit about Haleigh!
My name is Haleigh Elizabeth Booth. My son is Braxton James Booth and he is 6 months old. We live in Louisville, Kentucky with my amazing, hardworking husband Joe Booth which allows me to be a stay at home mom which I love!
I have been exclusively breastfeeding my son ever since he was born and I absolutely love it. Not only is it a benefit for myself, shedding the baby weight almost instantly and a lot easier to feed rather than preparing bottles, but it has endless health benefits for him which is most important. Not to mention an indescribable bond formed between the two of us that only we can share, which is probably my favorite part about breastfeeding.
I decided to try out to be a milk and baby model because I love taking photos, I love the products they carry and thought it would be a great experience! I also want to be involved with anything that has to do with normalizing breastfeeding because I feel that mothers shouldn't be afraid to feed their baby in public, it's a very natural thing and the world needs to know that! My favorite part of the shoot was seeing how happy Braxton was in front of the camera and how much fun he was having. It was also nice to meet other moms with the same interests. It's always nice to meet new mommy friends!
I've always loved dancing, going to the gym and photography as my hobbies, although there isn't much time for any of that now that my son is here. Having fun with him is my main hobby now and I wouldn't have it any other way! Of course I still have time for taking pictures since I take about 100 pictures of him on a daily basis!
Although I am still a new mom and learning every day, my #1 mom tip would probably be to just be yourself and have fun! Every day is a new experience and what a great experience it is! :)
