Event Photography – The Big Latch On – Hainesport, NJ
Yesterday, we headed over to Hainsport, NJ to photograph The Big Latch On, a event celebrating World Breastfeeding Week. This was a really unique event in which people all over the country get together to celebrate and spread awareness about breastfeeding. Together, moms from across the country simultaneously attempt to set a record for the most women breastfeeding at the same time, during which they each nurse their children for a timed sixty seconds.
A large gathering of people showed up to take part in the event, and we really enjoyed being a part of the excitement. There was a bunch of great food, lots of educational information, and a whole host of super nice people to meet and mingle with! Towards the end, there was even a giveaway where a lot of great prizes were raffled off!
We really enjoyed spending some time with the nice people who came out to celebrate the event and capturing some great photographs of all the action. Despite our concerns about the weather, it only really rained for a short period of time, and it didn’t put a damper on any of the festivities. Unfortunately for us photographers, the rain happened to be during the most important part… when the moms were setting the record for simultaneous breastfeeding! This made things a little challenging, but we still had a blast & got some terrific photos! Altogether, there were around 127 total attendees, and 47 children participated in being breastfed!
We wanted to extend a special thanks to the event organizers for allowing us to be a part of the experience! Here’s some of the photographs we took!
