Last year I invited Varsha from Henna Boutique into the studio to photograph her beautiful art work behind the scenes. Varsha is a talented henna artist in Brisbane. There are no limits to this amazingly creative woman. From simple bridal designs to intricate custom designs Varsha does it all with skill and speed. Her friendly smile shows her love for art and her natural artistic flair reflects the years of experience and fond memories using henna from her own childhood.

After the henna is applied, time is allowed to set and stain the skin. Your henna artwork will last up-to two weeks depending on your skin type. Pregnancy henna is very safe and includes soothing lavender in the mix. It smells divine. I absolutely loved seeing Varsha in action. If you’re looking for something a little different to celebrate your pregnancy I highly recommend henna painting.
Maternity photos or baby shower?
Henna belly art is popular for baby showers or prior to having maternity photos. I’ve even photographed henna pregnancy photos in a milk bath. For more information and availability Varsha can be contacted on 0404 001 043 or email
If you’d like to book henna belly maternity photos it’s a 2 step process. The henna art needs to be organised 3 days prior to your photographic session. Henna art photographs best 2 to 3 days after application. Henna Boutique can be found at Eat Street markets or Varsha will travel to you. Maternity photography is with Bee Cherished Photography in studio on Brisbane’s Northside. Check out our maternity gallery for inspiration
Thank you to Lindy for being such a wonderful model. Varsha and I really enjoyed meeting you and creating precious pregnancy memories for you.
