I first met Mercedes last summer to honor her 2nd pregnancy. We were about a week away from her due date, but she felt her baby would come late. The day of her photo session she texted me that she'd gone into labor, and I told her not to worry about coming in (of course!) but that if she wanted me to come after her birth and take phtos in her home that I would be happy to. The photo below was taken at her home in Arvada, Colorado with her 1 day old baby boy and her 2 year old daughter.
About a year later Mercedes was still tandem nursing and wanted to celebrate this fact! When I asked her about henna design requests, she said "a dragon and a fairy," and here's what came through! I especially love the mushrooms in this design.
She returned just a few days later when the henna was peaking in color, and we took a few photos in the studio and then headed outside. Just beautiful! I love doing this kind of work.
