For Katie's henna belly design she really encouraged me to do whatever I felt like. I asked her: did she feel watery, flowery or more like a tree? And the answer was flowers ~ so away I went! I had a lot of fun and incorporated a lot of neat flower ideas I've been holding on to. Katie returned a few days later at sunrise for some photos by the lake, and I love how they came out. She is glowing! She gave birth 11 days later and asked if I would come to her home in Boulder for postpartum henna. YES! I want to encourage women to stay at home and rest for at least the first 2 weeks, so I'm happy to travel to them for both henna & photos. Her sweet boy was just 3 days old and so wise looking with his peach fuzz. At the time of painting, his exact name was unknown. I continued on with the flower theme from her pregnancy and painted up her arm while she nursed her baby boy. Both big sister and Dad were able to be in the photos we took just a couple days after that - when her son was just 5 days old. I love meeting families like this and celebrating with them.... it's such a special time in life.
