La Leche League of Erie PA, The Freshest Milk in Town!
We are so happy to announce the project that has taken 5 months is complete! The La Leche League of Erie PA and Pin Up Erie partnered up for a very exciting Calendar Project to bring awareness to the benefits of Breastfeeding. La Leche League was founded in 1956 by seven strong women at a time when breastfeeding rates were at an all time low. This calendar pays homage to those magnificent women and their belief that breastfeeding is mothering close to the heart.
If you would like a calendar (or two or three) 😉 of your own, follow the link below! (We realize the picture is sideways, it was the only way to create a button from the MagCloud website, lol) All proceeds from the calendar purchases will go to LLL of Erie PA to help mothers and babies on their breastfeeding journey. LLL of Erie provides free monthly meetings and one-on-one support to local moms.
Beautiful Photography by Pin-Up Erie shows off the 1950’s era of how amazing it can be to Nurse in public. Real moms with their babies and children are lovingly sharing with us that amazing bond breastfeeding brings to families.
Over the course of these last 5 months we photographed 15 Mothers, roughly 20 kids, and put together one unique calendar in efforts to squash the negativity that surrounds Breast Feeding. We used different locations to create a nostalgic feel for this calendar including Sara’s
Presque Isle Erie, PA, The Riverside Inn
in Cambridge Springs, a beautiful home of one of the mothers that was build in the 1920s, and Presque Isle Beach! Check out the LLL Facebook Page

La Leche League (LLL), with the literal translation of “The Milk League”, is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to help mothers worldwide to breastfeed through mother-to-mother support, encouragement, information, and education, and to promote a better understanding of breastfeeding as an important element in the healthy development of the baby and mother.
