A PhotoShoot Will be the best decision you ever made

A PhotoShoot Will be the best decision you ever made

Not only is a photoshoot a huge part of you, your brand and your passion, it’s also so much fun! How could you not want to? For a long time I’ve been dreaming of a photoshoot combining natural hair, henna body art and beautiful women in natural light. This past weekend we made it happen. Our team consisted of 3 gorgeous models: Denise of LocCrush, Alexis of Aramintarose and Lara of NomadicBellyDance, our amazingly talented stylist and photographer Danielle of DFinney Photography and Denyelle our pro makeup artist and assistant Ellis. I can’t even begin to express the talent and the magic we created. My process I came across Danielle’s work often on Instagram. Her work is amazing and I’m just in awe of her photos. I also saw in her what my vision was. I love natural light and photography is one of my passions but you can’t do everything yourself. We all need help. We just have to find the right people. I also wanted to have the insight from others. I wanted to fuse artistic talent together where we would feed off each other. Then I decided to reach out to her. From there we set a date and the planning stages began. Our first date didn’t work out as I had a collaboration with Whole Foods in Columbia at Wine in the Woods that I couldn’t pass up. Luckily Danielle understood and was able to accommodate a new date. That worked out as well because the weather that weekend was not photoshoot worthy. Being that this was to be my very first photoshoot I was...

Henna Belly Blessings for Your Pregnancy

Henna Belly Blessings for Your Pregnancy

How can I even begin to describe the feeling and beauty of applying a henna belly design? I don’t even know if I could find the right words. It just makes me so happy and I love moments like these. Inspired by Melanie Ooi What is a Henna Belly (Blessing)? Henna is a plant-based natural and organic dye that safely leaves a temporary tattoo on the skin for 10-14 days. Henna is used traditionally for blessing ways, weddings, baby showers and religious celebrations. Locally most of my henna belly appointments are done with the client privately, in photoshoots or at their baby shower (this way guests get henna too!). Inspired by Bella Henna A Henna Belly design can take anywhere from 45-60 minutes to complete. Most babies in mom’s tummy will bounce around and give a kick here and there as I apply the henna. It’s so fun to watch them dance while I paint. I wrap every belly with saniderm to ensure darkest and longest stain results of the henna body art tattoo. I enjoy taking inspiration from other artists and then putting my own special touches of the final design. The Henna Belly will stain a beautiful reddish tone. Seeing how beautiful the design comes out is just amazing. Henna will be a light orange tone at first and then suddenly over the next few hours (24-48 hours) the design gets darker and deepens. Inspired by Akiyo Henna Every Henna Belly design created always reflects the energy I feel from the person. I’m not sure how to describe that but every individual that I do henna for,...

Bar & Bat Mitvah Henna Parties!

Bar & Bat Mitvah Henna Parties!

Over the last few months I have been fully booked every weekend with henna parties for the holidays, birthdays and especially bar/bat mitvahs. They have all been amazing and so much fun! From the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore to Dave & Buster’s and intimate restaurant settings they have all been really fun. Everyone is so creative in choosing out their designs. Freestyle henna art is one of my personal favorite requests. It allows for me to create something unique and beautiful. Did you know that in freestyle henna you always get a little bit more then the standard designs? Freestyle henna. May the force be with you & cute climbing lizard. More freestyle creations requested by the moms at the party. Someone definitely likes tattoos. When the design is like a piece of jewelry. Love it! I’m really fortunate to have such an awesome job #ilovemyjob. At the Henna Sooq, I get to create my own schedule, and have that flexibility to me a mom, and wife. Mind you, it’s a lot of work and there are many aspects I don’t enjoy like book keeping and inventory. They completely stress me out. My new focus on my henna art combined with social media makes this bliss. It’s super relaxing and fun. I’m not rushing anymore but really enjoying every bit of paste laid down. Plus the photos I can get to share on our IG are priceless. Book with us soon! Call us through our booking line at 443-254-0736. Would love to be apart of your event and even work on a...
