This photo came up in my memories as being 5 years ago, and I just had to stop and admire it one more time. This lovely mama was a pleasure to adorn - sun, moon, stars and garden were here design requests. Her skin really took to the henna and it got super dark as you can see in this photo above! And her sweet baby girl wore a flower crown for a few moments - enough time for me to snap a few photos.
  
Below you can see the henna past freshly applied (looking dark brown), and the photo underneath is another one from her breastfeeding photo session with me where we switched the theme to pink. 


I love honoring this wonderful, natural act of love and bonding between mother and child with body art. When I was creating the magazine Artfull Mother, 4 of the covers were focused on breastfeeding! 


  o  Read the 1st issue of Artfull Mother with 27 nursing mothers here
  o  See the issue on nursing twins (which had 2 covers) here
  o  Here is a woman's story of tandem nursing, she is on the cover for fall 2017 of Artfull Mother Magazine, which had 13 issues!


  See more blog posts about nursing here, here, here, here and here

  Simply email me if you would like to set up a time to be adorned and photographed nursing.

  I have packages that include a henna session and finished, high resolution photos as well as a printed book!
