One thing to remember, that I found surprising when i first did
henna professionally, is that people are amazed at henna. I look
back on my early designs and embarassed that I charged
money for it, and yet people loved it. Clients are also often
amazed that I do things freehand; it seems perfectly normal to
me but they are amazed. So just know that you are doing
something beautiful and something that is new to the client; they
are unlikely to judge you because they don't know much about it
and are usually eager to learn more. Just think back to your first
design when you started and how thrilled you were with it, no
matter how simple the design and know that your clients will feel
something like that.

If you still get nervous, just try to think that you are sharing with
them, not exchanging your skills for money. Just because you
are charging money there is no reason to change your attitude
about your work. You are not on stage, you are just sitting there
doodling so relax and enjoy the process.

I hope to hear all about your experience and what you learned
from it. I think we all benefit from experiences like this, even 2nd
hand.

happy hennaing!
