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.

      Though I have lived in Boulder, Colorado since I was 11 years old it's not often I meet someone who was born here and treasures this city like I do. Anya requested I adorn her pregnant belly with the local mountainscape ~ the Flatirons of Boulder. Geese fly above the mountains with feathers drifting down one arm, and snowflakes down another. I really loved how this turned out!

    After photographing inside the studio, we headed out to Sawhill Ponds. Rob (my beloved grip) took this photo of me as I help Anya into the next set of silky colors. 

    Even though you can't see the henna in this last photo, I absolutely love the silhouette ~ it looks like her heart is bursting with light ~

    This beautiful henna heart design came from an image this mama-to-be showed me from her baby's blessing. Really an honor to create art like this ~ 

    A few days later we met for photos to capture the tattoo when it is peaking in color. We started off in the studio and then went outside..

    Lara stayed warm with her coat between photos and we watched the sun set over Boulder's flatirons together.... a special moment ~
