Has anyone taken nursing photos?

I'm getting a photographer to shoot JJ's one year pictures, and I have always wanted nursing photos of us as well, so I thought that if he gets hungry during the shoot, she could take some. I was wondering if anyone has done this - what would be a good thing for me to wear, or any ideas for cool shots?

Some ideas...

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

Webbie, I like that pic. I think it's very cute.

Webbie, I love that picture!

I have some taken of Chas' very first meal. Other than that I don't think I took any.

i have one photo of me nursing. my mom took it because i had my son in one arm and our dog had her head resting on my knee with this look on her face like "peas take dat ting back where it comed from." priceless!

i don't think i'd like a posed nursing picture. it would seem fake and staged and not like a candid shot that would capture real time.

I've taken a few with my cell phone camera --- it's more like a mommy's eye view type of thing. I just think Lucas looks so sweet when he nurses, I wanted a few shots to remember. I think some nursing photos could be really beautiful.

Webbie, I love that picture - awesome.

I took Solomon for 9-month pictures today (was going to wait until a year, but DH insisted we do both... who am I to argue?) and did some nursing shots while we were there too. We did a couple different angles, and got a great shot from the side that looks very tasteful and beautiful. I ordered a print of that one, which I'll get in a couple weeks. I'll post a pic then.

OMG Webbie that is hilarious!!

I have a few non professional pictures.
I never had any done professionaly. I had one friend take a picture while we were out. I have taken a few pictures of him nursing...from my point of view.

I like having them, and I think it's probably something you will enjoy having and looking back on. You never know when they are going to stop nursing.

I'm so sad because it was SUCH a good picture. Booooo
