New Mexico firefighter might be fired after wife breastfeeds in his uniform.

A New Mexico firefighter might be fired, after El Paso-based photographer Tara Ruby photographed his wife breastfeeding in his uniform.

The shot went viral online, and sparked attention for other photographs of women nursing at work. 

The image was intended to empower women, but has instead caused trouble for the family. A spokesman for the city said 'it may or may not be a violation of [city] policy, if a firefighter or their spouse were photographed in uniform for a portrait that was not commissioned by the city'.
