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.

      The breast feeding art project continues ~ with Rivka & her daughter. Her design starting point for me was the idea of a tree of life, not with Celtic roots, but with Celtic branches. The trunk emerges from between the breasts and the center of the tree is a Celtic Knot, the rest of design, branching out is ~ Celtic-ISH ~ 

       As this little girl was leaving for her photo shoot, she asked her Dad to include her mermaid costume! I love it. Here we have a gorgeous red-haired mama, covered Celtic(ish) body art, nursing her mermaid/angel.  I absolutely love it! This is now one of my favorite forms of art to create. 

    During our photo session we tried a few different colors and nursing positions.... here's a moment between nursing photos ~

    What a loving bond between these two ~

      I am working on a art progression series, showing this beautiful mama-to-be growing to full term using a caterpillar - butterfly theme. This month, the caterpillar has spun a chrysalis ....
