What a joy to visit with Verna again ~ I have adorned her for pregnancy, postpartum as well as a breast feeding. She came with some interesting design ideas and I incorporated some of the ideas into this art, which I think came out beautifully. Here I am, covered in my birthday henna, putting the finishing touches on her tattoo:

I was covered in my birthday henna when I painted Katy to celebrate her pregnancy! She asked for doves and a single poppy to represent her unborn baby ~ I love the design that came through! Just gorgeous.

I really loved creating this underwater themed henna belly deisgn!

What a beautiful summer day ~ my dear husband (who is also my lighting assistant) took this photo below ~

  A postpartum henna party ~ a wonderful way to honor the transition of a new family member. 

I drove out to see Laura in her home in Aurora and celebrate her birth with henna tattoos. Her 3 oldest daughters joined her in getting body art, with a flower and butterfly theme that we continued from her pregnancy.

   This mama asked me incorporate a dragon and horse in her henna belly design ~ she is the year of the dragon, and her baby is the year of the horse ~ 

I love how it came out ~

  This mama-to-be came prepared with lots of ideas for her henna belly design. Mustaches, a vintage circus hot air balloon, a top hat and elephant honor her pregnancy!

  Megan's henna design started with a photo she shared with me, of a lotus opening. I love to create lotus designs and I love how this one unfolded. 

Megan and her family came for outdoor photography about 3 days later when the henna was peaking ~

The breast feeding art project continues with Mindy! Her request was a henna theme combining technology and nature ~ steampunk came to mind ~ and I love how we have the planets, stars, and satalites all incorporated into this design ~

I love seeing women blossom into motherhood ~ 

I've known Kia before her first birth, and it's been really neat getting to know her over the years. She is an amazing mama! Her whole family is awesome.

This henna belly design of a tree incorporates two owls that represent the two grandmothers in this baby's life. I love how it came out!
