landon and mommy

i read somewhere years ago, that when a certain quite famous baby photographer did supposed "mother and infant" photos she used hired models as opposed to the actual mothers because she didn't think mothers that had just given birth were ever comfortable enough with their bodies to be nude in a photograph, even if the nudity wasn't actually featured in the image.

i've not (exactly) found the opposite, but i have found that showing the real connection of an actual mother with their own newborn child is so much more special and meaningful than whether or not the mother's body was perfect and photo ready.

the whole thing to me seemed so shallow and plastic, and when i do something like i did today i really believe i was right.
