Lesley Lyla Easter Lily / by Matt Clysdale

It was a huge honor for me to be able to photograph a friend/model with her little girl. There is perhaps nothing more amazing in the universe than the mother-child bond, expressed most powerfully in the simple act of breastfeeding. 

When we began the photo shoot, I was only expecting to capture a simian embrace from little Lyla, but hunger stepped in and the obvious response--for her--was to feed. 

And there it is, the most natural thing in the world.
