With the plans for our maternity photoshoot coming up, I wanted to do something very special besides showing off the belly bump. I've always been a fan of the Eastern Mediterranean culture, and part of that includes temporary body art such as henna tattoos.
Henna is used to adorn a young women's body in celebration of marriage and fertility. Since we are celebration fertility and life, I think it only makes it appropriate to seek out an artist and adorn the skin that protects the life within.
Some mixtures of henna, although natural, can create allergic reactions. So be safe and let your artist know before hand that you are expecting.
