What she didn't expect was for the photo to go viral, be shared tens of thousands of times, and completely change her life.

"The photo was of me with my son, breastfeeding, just holding him completely bare, both of us," she told BuzzFeed News. "I had rolls in places I never had in my life, I had dark circles under my eyes, I was raw, and I didn't photoshop any part of the photo to make me look different than I actually did right then."

"Many women resonated with the photos and wanted to be photographed," she said. That's when she realised she could help mothers celebrate, and love, their post-pregnancy bodies.
