My Speciality is honoring motherhood with Henna Tattoos. I love to adorn pregnant and breastfeeding women with henna then make beautiful photos for them. I live in Lafayette, CO and travel the front range from Colorado Springs, Denver and as far North as Fort Collins to find my living works or art. I am also the creative director of Artfull Mother magazine - a local magazine devoted to the interests of mothers and the art that empowers them!
I met Nicole during the first year of my Blessed Belly art project, back in 2008. Looking at this photo, I see just how much has changed in how I create and capture the art.
For this pregnancy, we had a tree theme, stretching up to Nicole's heart.
Her whole family came for photos, and we started indoors with a few color changes. Her daughter got some henna on her hand to match ~
Even though it was very cold and snowing, we decided to try for some outdoor photos anyway. I love how they came out! Colorado is such a magical place covered in snow.
This henna body art is done to celebrate TWINS and has a theme of sun, wind, boulders and roses ~
When the henna was peaking we met for more photos ~ starting inside the studio where it was warm ~
And then outside into the beautiful snowy landscape of Boulder, Colorado!
There were so many birds flying by... on this photo below, you can see them ~
This henna belly design has a watery theme with seals, sailboat and a light house ~ more of an east coast feeling ~
We met to take photos when the henna was peaking ~ and as it so happens it was also snowing! I photograph in all weather and the snow didn't stop us. Jaime stayed warm in her jacket while my amazing lighting assistant got the lighting set up.
