Modeling Opportunities  ~ Summer 2016 ~ Boulder, Colorado

 I am excited to announce another season of modeling opportunities!

Staying creative in my art form is so important, and I love what each one of these projects brings out in me. This year I am adding a pregnant mama dancing project! Please read through each project, they each have different requirements and timing.

 

1.  Mama Henna ~ Mama Dancing

This henna and body art project will happen this summer - the dates have yet to be arranged, along with all the details, but please let me know if you are interested. This is for mamas due in July, August & September.

Please use the contact form to let me know you are interested in this project, letting me know the project name(s) and your due date. 

 

2. Blessed Belly, Blessed Baby: Honoring Motherhood with Henna Tattoos

This project has been going on since 2008 and has involved over 500 pregnant women! All the women I adorn for this project will be in Volume 7 of my series, which will be released on Mother’s Day 2017 OR Mother's Day 2018. Pregnant models may also be included in our magazine, Artfull Mother. To participate you must be a blank canvas – both in your non-attachment to the tattoo (though I’m very interested to hear your artistic ideas & vision) but also in terms of permanent tattoos –  just none that will show up in the photos.

 I am currently looking for pregnant women who are due in July, August & September. I have openings for 3 kinds of pregnant models:

1) Simply pregnant, 2) Pregnant and willing to do full body art and nude photography, 3) twin pregnancies.

All models for this project contribute $30 cash for materials & sign a model release. There will be two sessions to attend in my studio in NE Boulder – one to be adorned with henna (2 hours) and then a 2nd session 2 or 3 days later where we photograph you in the studio and outdoors. Pregnancy models are adorned 4 to 8 weeks before their due date. I am espeically interested in having 1 or 2 models do "full body henna" where they come for two long henna sessions. These full body henna models will be photographed nude, respectfully of course. Pregnant models may include their mother in the henna & photography if you both have a good connection. Of course big brothers and sisters are welcome to come along too for photos, and if your child is old enough (at least 6) I am happy to give him/her henna too. If you wish to have your husband along for photos that is fine as well.   All models will be photographed by myself and my husband Rob, who may take in progress photos as well as set up time-lapse photography. This year we are working on creating video as well for our youtube channel.

Please use the contact form to let me know you are interested in this project, letting me know the project name(s) and your due date.
