I am so grateful that my work puts me in touch with so many mamas! I love their company and I love hearing their stories.
This young mama is such a sweet new mother. Her baby was pretty distracted by the lights flashing and me gazing down at her with a camera, but it was only a matter of time before she settled down and began to nurse. Capturing this fleeting time in a child's life feels so meaningful.
This mama messaged me later and said, "I just wanted to thank you again for the other day! It was such an amazing and special experience, and I'm so happy that I will have these pictures to cherish and pass on to my daughter one day.
The whole thing was empowering as a woman and made me realize how lucky I am to have been able to breastfeed in the first place. Talking to you also helped me ground myself and be more in the moment, and connect with myself again.
I have started my bullet journal and I love it! Writing down my blessings everyday is a new goal I am working on, and I wouldn’t have thought to do that if it weren’t for you. Thank you so much!"
Simply email me if you would like to set up a time to be adorned with henna & photographed.
I have packages that include a henna session and finished, high resolution photos as well as a printed book!
