Melody came to my home studio in Boulder (Colorado) for some breastfeeding henna, and requested an owl. I really had fun with this one! I love how the owl is tilting its head. The henna on my arm is bright orange because I'd just applied the henna the day before. This is my Mother's Day henna sleeve!
After 3 days the henna had oxidized and was a beautiful brown color, peaking in darkness. We started in the studio for some photos under the lights, and then headed outside. I am so grateful it's warm enough now to do this outside! I take pregnancy pictures year round but for breastfeeding, I really like to wait until it's warm enough for everyone to feel comfortable. In the photo below, you can see my henna peaking too!
It was warm on this day, but the day before, Mother's Day, it actually SNOWED and you can still see some on the mountains. I love to capture the beauty of mothers nourishing their babies!
