The picture was taken two years ago and the woman in it, Amy, wants to make one thing very clear. It wasn’t staged.
On her blog, Daughter of the Sun Amy calls it “just a simple share of a beautiful captured moment.”
Amy and her family were living in Hawaii at the time the shot was taken. She explained she was in the middle of doing her Yoga when the baby saw an opportunity.
“I was just doin’ my daily flow when the little sweet pea came to sneak a suckle"
Amy told the blog BabyCenter that a friend had posted the shot and the race was on.
She also used her own blog to explain further.
“When I posted the photo I had no idea it would be shared the way it was. There was no showing off intended, nor did I send this photo out to any websites to gain attention. A few close friends shared it on Facebook as a beautiful photo of a mama connecting with her child.
Amy closed her thoughts on the picture and the response she has gotten to it by saying "I understand our family is not the stereotypical ideal. We might look different to the mainstream world, but the closeness and love we share is beyond ideal."
Amy said she and her family will soon be moving to New Zealand for a few months where her now nearly three year old daughter will continue to do her Yoga alongside.
