celebrating parenthood...
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. 

Fed, With Love

a photography book project

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.

Your Feeding Story, Celebrated

photography you'll cherish

Who it's for

What is Fed, With Love?

 it's for you if...

Fed, With Love is a brand new photography book project run by Glean & Co Photography (Boise's very best lifestyle newborn & family portrait studio) celebrating your baby's feeding story.

Whether you are breastfeeding, bottlefeeding, pumping, feeding twins, have a baby with a NG tube, a toddler who is still nursing, a combination of these things or something else entirely- your story matters. This book is a collection of love letters paired with stunning images of young pacific northwest families, just like yours, feeding their babies in a wide variety of ways.

  • You have a baby 0-5years old
  • You feed your baby
  • You love your baby
  • You already know how fast time flies
  • You want to look back on this stage long after it's gone

We are donating 10% of all sales of prints, albums, wall art and digital files to the Northwest Mother's Milk Bank, delivering human milk to Washington, Oregon, Idaho & Alaska's most fragile NICU newborns

When we have completed all the sessions, we will design and publish a beautiful hard cover coffee table book called Fed, With Love featuring our favorite photo of each baby alongside a love letter to them from their parents. 

Hate planning what everyone should wear? We've got you (and your whole family covered!)

3) access to our client closet

Our favorite image from the session + your love letter to your baby will be featured in our book Fed, With Love

What's Included

Who it benefits

Northwest Mother's
Milk Bank

our most fragile babies

Northwest Mothers Milk Bank (NWMMB) is a community-based, nonprofit donor milk bank established in 2008. They are an accredited member of the Human Milk Banking Association of North America (HMBANA). Their mission is to improve the health and survival of the Pacific Northwest’s most vulnerable infants. NWMMB serves hospitals and families in Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Idaho. They believe every baby deserves access to human milk. 

Premature and fragile infants deserve all the support possible for a healthy outcome. Mothers whose babies arrive prematurely are often unable to produce breast milk when their babies need it most. Northwest Mothers Milk Bank supplies safe donor human milk to fragile infants, both in hospitals and at home. If a baby needs breast milk to thrive, parents who cannot breastfeed deserve fair and equitable access to donor milk.

In 2014, Evie was the first baby to receive milk from Northwest Mothers Milk Bank as a community donation. After Evie’s recovery, a community care fund was established to ensure that the processing fees for donor milk would not be a barrier for families whose infants have medical need. Evie’s Fund is available to families by application, medical prescription, and medical necessity.

Why we chose Northwest Mother's Milk Bank:

As we meet more and more new moms, we are blessed to hear their stories. Stories of trouble with milk production, latching, premature births and time spent in the NICU, health challenges, previous loss and so much more. Organizations like Northwest Mother's Milk Bank help families like the ones sitting on our couch everyday, just struggling to feed their babies and keep them safe and healthy. Help us in supporting their mission to supply safe human breastmilk to fragile NICU babies in our own PNW backyard.

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!

Love Notes

Mo Newman,
fed with love participant

"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. !"

Caitlin Hart
newborn client & fed with love participant

"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!"

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?
