This joyful pregnant mama arrived and had a fascinating story about all her design ideas: Mountains, tree and music. I had recently gathered ideas to incorporate music and added in some piano keys - one of her many instruments - as well as musical notes. A treble clef was "carved" into the trunk.
I love creating such detailed and meaningful art!
This mama was thrilled with the photos, and shared on social media:
"I had the incredible honor of being adorned with magnificent henna today by the incredible SarahKate Butterworth. Her talents and passions are unparalleled. What a beautiful and magical way to end this pregnancy.
Thought I'd tell you a bit about the artwork...If you take a closer look, you'll see 2 sets of 2 music notes on my belly. One set represents the 2 children we will have and the other 2 represent the 2 we lost. Both sets have a keyboard under them as 2 are going to be playing the musical game of life here on earth and the other 2 playing music down on us from heaven. Both Joshua and I are extremely musical, so the treble clef in the tree trunk is both of us intertwined.
This was more than just art, this was a healing and growing experience having an incredibly skilled artist tell my (our) story through art."
Simply email me if you would like to set up a time to be adorned with henna & photographed.
I have packages that include a henna session and finished, high resolution photos as well as a printed book!
