Everyone returned to the studio (in Lafayette, CO) for more photos when the henna was peaking in color, which happens around day 2 or 3. I love to photograph women (and young women!) gathered together. There is a special kind of magic that happens in circles like this. Rob and I worked together throughout this whole process to capture these images.
I had enough models to have a 2nd session, and here I was able to apply all the things I learned doing this the first time. Another afternoon passed as I adorned for several hours and everyonelaughted a lot and drank lots of tea. I loved getting these sweet mother daughter tattooed portraits! It was heart melting to see the special kind of love that mothers and daughters share.
Once again everyone returned for photos when the henna was peaking in color and it was another magical moment to have them all gathered and giggling in my studio. I love doing art like this!
