It is only sensual/sexual/provocative because that is how you have been conditioned to see such things. None of these pictures are innately provocative in any way.
Porn or beauty? I believe these photography projects by Ivette Ivens are nothing short of spectacular. And hardly worth calling into question.
Since when did motherhood become a bad thing?
As Ivette says; “Breastfeeding can be messy, uncomfortable, and even painful at times, but the mother’s inner consciousness tells another story.
The images depict the way each woman feels while nursing: pure, beautiful, saintly, celestial.
It’s between a mother and her child.

The photographer breastfed her older son until he was a little over 3-years-old and still breastfeeds her 10-month-old baby today.
A golden ray in the morning. A Breastfeeding Goddess.
She also believes moms should breastfeed as long as they see fit for their own families. “Children know when it’s time to wean off. Mothers do too. Strangers don’t know, so they shouldn’t care.”
Ivens often takes her subjects outside to capture them breastfeeding in nature as a reminder that nursing is “a totally normal thing.”
“I want people to look at it as if it was a cat nursing her baby kittens. Or any other mammal, if you’re not a cat person,” she said, adding, “Forget the covering up, nursing in a public bathroom, age restrictions.”
