its challenges, its joys and all the tiny, fleeting, full of love moments we never want to forget.
It's easy to love our babies,
it's not always easy to feed them.
Imagine having stunning photos of your baby that beautifully showcase your bonded connection.
This fleeting time in their lives where they are fully and completely reliant on you, their parent, to provide for them.
Imagine looking at these photos long after your baby is grown, instantly going back to this moment right here where they look up at you with all the trust in the world.
And as a bonus, your participation helps raise money and provide milk for tiny fragile babies in our own community
If you've been thinking about having photos taken for a while, this is the perfect opportunity.
Hate planning what everyone should wear? We've got you (and your whole family covered!)
Our favorite image from the session + your love letter to your baby will be featured in our book Fed, With Love
Your choice of location - choose from available spots in our lifestyle studio or at a beautiful Boise outdoor location
Everyone is welcome! We'll take your feeding photos as well as that new family portrait and/or sibling shot at the same time.
We've hand picked specialty items including a copy of the book. 10% of all sales benefit the NW Mothers Milk Bank
Sit down with us to go through all your favorites, choose from our prints and products and purchase your custom artwork
I started this book project for a couple reasons- the first being entirely selfish in that I was needing a new creative outlet and wanted to explore a more intimate subject matter both in studio and outdoors.
And the second reason is that we have discovered over the last 5+ years of photographing newborns that stories matter. That whole "it takes a village" mentality is sometimes about a grandma coming over to do some laundry or hold the baby, but more often than not the village is other parents telling you what worked for them- or the challenges they faced and how they got through them. Sometimes the village is a group of care providers, sometimes its just someone to hug you when you're literally crying over spilled milk or someone to assure you that "fed is best" when you've decided to stop pumping.
We all know that parenthood is hard. We've heard hundreds of parents before us say it. But how do you know if this is just normal "babies are hard" type stuff, or something that could potentially be improved or even fixed entirely? First recognizing a problem and then knowing who to go to for help can make all the difference in the world and potentially take a colicky inconsolable baby to a smiling bundle of joy.
Your story matters. And we believe that this collection of love letters to our babies will help future mom and dads-to-be navigate their own feeding journeys.
It's easy to love our babies, it's not always easy to feed them.
I'm Paige, and I'm so glad you're here!

On your big day we'll photograph your feeding journey as well as your family, individuals of all the kids and even the dog if you want to include them! We'll set up your in-person ordering appointment after the session is complete and have you back in to view your images 1-2 weeks later.

Step 6: You're in a Book!
"Our family enjoyed our entire experience with Glean&Co from scheduling the sesssion to taking photos in the studio. We always felt cared for and honored as Paige took our photos. We would recommend Glean&Co for any of those special moments. !"
"I was happy with how supported I felt. I didn't get anxious when my baby got fussy as Paige would just hold my baby and soothe him with ease. I really felt that time for a fussy baby was built in our session to help me relax and just let it all be."
"supportive and comfortable environment - and champagne!"
"excellent experience that was the epitome of a professional photography session geared for families "
"Enjoyed it all!"
The images from the session are not included within the participation fee. During your design and ordering appointment we will show you your images for the first time and help you select the very best of the best.

Your baby is only this small once. Capture these fleeting moments with a special photoshoot of cherished images... along with a generous donation to babies in need.
Yes! Fed, With Love sessions are the perfect time to get not only that special feeding moment captured, but also an updated family portrait (fully clothed!), sibling shots, the image for your holiday card, gifts for the grandparents and so much more- all while supporting Northwest Mothers Milk bank!
can you take non-feeding photos at the same time?
Fed, With Love sessions will be published in a coffee table book, therefore a signed model release allowing us to show your images is required. However, we are more than happy to do a private feeding session for you separately from Fed, With Love! Visit our Boise Breastfeeding page to learn more.
can i keep my images private?
Digital files are purchased separately from the $90 participation fee. We know how important having a digital copy is so we include a matching digital file with every print or product purchased.
are the digital files included?
No! We celebrate love and parenthood. While you'll see the word "mom" a lot on this website, please know that if your child is blessed to have a loving family made up of parents who do not fit traditional mom/dad roles you are welcome here. Join us in documenting love and family of every variety.
is this only for moms?
Any journey is welcome! Whether you're breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, have a baby with medical complications, a breastfeeding toddler or something else entirely your story is welcome in this book and we'd love to hear more about you and your babies.
what types of feeding count?
Yes! And you get to decide what you're comfortable with. You'll always get approval before any images are shared or go to print. We aim to create beautiful timeless images not a peep show!
will these photos be tasteful?
