For this project, several models will be required who are currently feeding their children breastmilk. Whether it comes directly from the breast, a pump, an SNS, or you have to supplement with donor milk, formula, etc., you feed your biological child or an adoptive child, a single baby, twins or triplets, a newborn or a preschooler. Your story is one that needs to be shared. This project is all-inclusive, LGBTQ+ Friendly and encourages participation from all families.
The project was founded by Ilissa Kolly, owner of Bean Family Wellness and Photographer for Imagery by Bean. Ilissa Kolly's work has been featured in internationally published magazines such as Midwifery Today, Pathways to Family Wellness, Holistic Parenting, and Natural Pregnancy Magazine. She has been a guest speaker on CTV Morning Live, as well as on CJOB Radio Live.
Official model calls for individuals meeting specific criteria will be made on the Bean Family Wellness & The Art of Breastmilk Facebook page on a regular basis. However, anyone who is interested is welcome to apply at anytime. Please contact us to indicate your interest. You will receive a follow-up email within with more details and a link to a questionnaire.
Images from the Art of Breastmilk Project will be shared on all of our social media accounts regularly, highlighting new images and excerpt stories from the real-life experiences of parents and their children.
