Hi! I'm SarahKate, welcome to my Blog!

My Speciality is honoring motherhood with Henna Tattoos, but I adorn women and their daughters for all kinds of reasons - birthday parties, rites of passage, even weddings. I love to adorn pregnant and breastfeeding women with henna then make beautiful photos for them. I live in Lafayette, CO and travel the front range from Colorado Springs, Denver and as far North as Fort Collins to find my living works or art. I am also the creative director of Artfull Mother magazine - a local magazine devoted to the interests of mothers and the art that empowers them!

  • Prenatal Henna Adornment

    A lotus was part of the design request and the rest just came flowing out. 


    The process of applying the henna took about 2 hours, and then it was time to photograph. I have lights in my studio so we can capture the art right away! 


    I love it when women bring special things to wear for photos - in this case the mama brought 2 skirts and we found some things from my collection of silky things that went with it. I especially loved her green tie dye skirt!

     
    Afterwards we stepped outside and caught some of the freshly fallen leaves. Autumn in Colorado is so beautiful!

  • Some details from a henna session a few days ago, celebrating breastfeeding. Design requests were casual, so a flowery doodle came through.

    This may be the last baby she breastfeeds.... the henna is temporary but the photos will remind her of this sweet bond forever.

  • Sacred Feminie Art in all seasons

    It's a chilly November in Colorado, but it's never to cold to create art! This lovely maiden bared her belly to the autumn winds as part of the Sacred Feminine Art Project I'm working on.

     I love being with women in nature, and just seeing how things *flow* as we photograph. Sometimes I am drawn to photograph outside, sometimes sessions are indoors only.

  • Liquid healing flowing down as a Henna Crown

     Yesterday's art!

    I was excited when this lovely mama requested a water element in her design.  She's been visualizing healing liquid being poured on top of her head and as I adorned her I felt it and let it move my hand.


     I began with a spiral in the center of head and let the design flow through. Flowers were also a request so out spun flower after flower, flowing in the healing liquid. Leaves and bits of ivy found themselves worked in spontaneously. 

      Not just the head but flowing down the neck, over the shoulder and to her port.

  • The leaves blowing in the wind

    This mama was feeling the tree-vibe! I loved hearing her stories of how she'd been harvesting apples at different locations around the Boulder area the past few weeks.

    A nod to autumn in the blowing leaves in the design. Fall is HERE in Colorado! Thankfully, the wind blowing her silk back is a warm one... but soon... I'm sure the snow will be in the air.

  • Fall in Colorado!

    What a joy to photograph during this time of year! This lovely mama was a lot of fun to work with. We started in the studio and did several nude photos with rose petals and then brought those rose petals outside to enjoy. During the photo shoot this mama surprised me by tossing the petals up so they fell right around her - gorgeous! I love how the trees change this time of year in Colorado.... we were photographing near my new studio in Louisville, Colorado.
