faiza’s mendhi ceremony

I had never been to a mendhi ceremony before and while I knew it was an amazing celebration for the bride, I had no idea how much it was also a celebration of family and friends and music. There were friends of the groom (the guys even had a bit of henna fun) and family from all over were there to celebrate, eat, share photo albums, play the drums and sing.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
