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!

  • Elizabeth's postpartum henna

    Postpartum henna is really a beautiful tradition that I love to re-create. It originally comes to us from North Africa, where new mamas are blessed and protected with henna tattoos during the first 9 days after the baby is born. I had adorned Elizabeth for her pregnancy and when she gave birth she let me know she was ready for more henna. I drove to her home in Boulder to adorn her while she laid in bed with her newborn babe, which slept in her arms and nursed during the entire session. I returned to her home a few days later to adorn her daughter too and take photos of the 3 of them... so precious!
