A young mother and bride has made a strong protest with the softest of photos.
Emma Coleman, 19, from Seattle shared a photo of her breastfeeding nine-month-old daughter Catalaya on her wedding day.
The image was uploaded to Facebook mother’s group Breastfeeding Mamas Talk and captioned with a powerful shout out to other young mums.
“Being young I know the added pressure to do right by your child and I’m glad I stuck with it,” she said.
“Even on my wedding day I found a way to make it work.”
Coleman went on to say the image of her standing alone with her daughter was one she truly cherished.
“It’s one of my favorite pictures from that day,” she said.
The image – taken by photographer Hannah Malhan – shot to popularity as thousands of users liked, shared and commented.
