Nicole Trunfio has been photographed breastfeeding her four-month-old son, Zion, for the subscriber cover of Elle Australia’s June issue.

In the editor’s letter, Justine Cullen wrote: “This wasn’t a contrived situation: Zion needed a feed, Nicole gave it to him, and when we saw how beautiful they looked we simply moved her onto the set. It was completely natural moment that resulted in a powerful picture.”

“When I saw the cover of me breastfeeding, which was unplanned and just natural, I teared up and thought, ‘Wow this is such a special moment where my worlds have collided’,” Trunfio said. “There’s the maternal side of me, who so loves being a mum, and the professional side, who’s so passionate about her career.”

A separate shot of Trunfio holding a sleeping Zion in her arms appears on the cover that will be in stores tomorrow.

The image has made a big impression on social media, launching the the hashtag #normalizebreastfeeding. Tell us what you think of this cover shot.
