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!

  • Artfull Mother Magazine!

    Doing the kind of work I do with pregnant women, I hear so many incredible stories. When Kelly sat in my chair and shared hers, I was really blown away by her love and patience. She requested her design incorporate her daughter, her unborn baby boy, and her 4 miscarriages - all with birds. After I had completed the design I stared in wonder at what looked like a rainbow behind the birds - I hadn't intended on incorporating this symbol, but it just came through anyway (rainbow-babies are babies conceived after a miscarriages).  

     Her daughter came along with her for the photo session when the henna was peaking and got some great photos of them together! 

    Her mothering journey was remarkable, especially in that she found the support she needed. Her baby boy was born healthy and I was thrilled to see them both after the birth & share in her happiness for his safe arrival. Read all about the resources she found! One thing women tell me is that miscarriage is not talked about enough, and so this issue delves into the stories of several mothers sharing about how they have processed this grief. 

     Artfull Mother Magazine is both a digital and print magazine! All 13 issues are up on the website and available to read for FREE. Check here, on my Pinterest boards, for ways to get print copies.

  • She Tiger

    What I love about henna is the language of symbols, and the power of marking a person's body with them. They don't have to be complicated or rooted in an ancient text - a blossoming lotus mirrors a blossoming in your own life. The stripes of a tiger remind you of your inner Cat, powerful and graceful. And the moon.... the moon feels inherently feminine. For this photo session, we sat with the trees, embracing the beauty & the fierce presence of the She Tiger. .

  • Drawing

    Drawing is such a meditation for me, be it on paper or a person. I did this free hand henna style zendoodle during a dance break last night.

  • I love that my work involves hearing about a woman's special symbols and finding a way to artistically combine them. In this design, I really am taken by how the mandala in this looks almost like a rising sun. After adorning this lovely mama-to-be we and photographing her in my home studio, we went out to our backyard to enjoy the blooming roses. I love how the nature is a reflection of her design - blooming roses & the tree in the background.... This is the kind of art I love to create, art that has meaning - not just to me, but all the families I meet. This baby is due very soon and I hope to have the opportunity to photograph her before the grand event!

  • Breastfeeding body art, Zinnia flowers!

    There is something so healing about witnessing this nourishing act between a mother and her baby. I love taking time to honor the breastfeeding journey with henna. To take the time and honor women's breasts, acknowledging their life-giving milk. I absolutely adore the how well fed this dear one looks. And what a stunning mama! I met the most amazing women doing this work. I can't wait to finish more from this series.... This photo was taken out by Boulder Creek last week, underneath the cotton wood trees.

  • First time mama goddess

    I love the variety of shapes women come in! This first time mama was such a goddess and I loved creating this flowing, spontaneous design for her. 

    When women come to my studio in Lafayette they get to enjoy sitting in my special tattoo chair. The chair can recline so women can rest comfortably (if they like reclining pregnant - if not they can simply sit up). The photos with the gray background are from our home photo studio, taken a couple days after henna application, when the natural stain is at it's darkest.
