Nichole Hanna: Bellydancer, Mother

Posted: February 21st, 2011 | Filed under: bellydancer, collector, home | 6 Comments »

I met Nichole Hanna very recently at a Yoga Carnival at Steadfast and True. She was set up in the corner, doing henna treatments on anyone in the crowd. She had on a beautiful metal headdress that night. So we called her about a week later, to see if we could shoot more images. She and her husband Brandon, (who runs Lone Wolf Tattoo), bought a foreclosure home in East Nashville and brought it back to life. They met on the Renaissance Festival tour. Now, with the addition of their son Aidan, they’ve settled into a nice family life.

    LOVE this new direction you’re sharing with us, the subject matter as well as the treatment… for instance, the first shot in this series where you’ve done the BW print treatment, how in the world do you do that?
    The whole thing reminds me of, but feels more focused, less glib. That is, not glib at all — heartfelt, genuine. Thanks. Inspiring.
