Henna & Photos

SarahKate Butterworth ~ Boulder's Premier Henna Artist and Photographer My henna is made of natural, safe ingredients and lasts a week or two. I serve Colorado's front rage ~ Boulder, Longmont, Lafayette, Louisville, Denver & metro Denver, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Loveland, Nederland and Aspen. The tradition of pregnancy henna comes to us from the Berber culture (north Africa) who have been using henna for over 8,000 years. Having henna applied during a healthy pregnancy is generally safe but it is always a good idea to speak with your doctor. Henna should be avoided if you are extremely anemic or if you (or your unborn baby) has a G6PD deficiency.

    What a joy to visit with Verna again ~ I have adorned her for pregnancy, postpartum as well as a breast feeding. She came with some interesting design ideas and I incorporated some of the ideas into this art, which I think came out beautifully. Here I am, covered in my birthday henna, putting the finishing touches on her tattoo:

    She returned a few days later with her little girl for nursing photos ~

    I was covered in my birthday henna when I painted Katy to celebrate her pregnancy! She asked for doves and a single poppy to represent her unborn baby ~ I love the design that came through! Just gorgeous. 

    3 days later we met to photograph her at sunset ~ what a beautiful summer day!

    Above is the photo Rob took of us, below is the photo I took of Katy. She is glowing!
