Splashing in the Tub | One Year Birthday Session in Cypress TX

Super Cute Outdoor Baby Session for First Birthday Portraits | Cypress TX Children's Photographer

Rub a dub dub! Outdoor splashing is fun!

Howdy, friends! Good afternoon to you! You're in for a treat today because I'm previewing an adorable one year birthday session for a long term client of mine. He is handsome as can be and a pure joy to photograph! Keep on scrolling for more adorable details.

First Birthday Photos Cypress Texas

The vision for this super cute outdoor baby session is to let my clients be little. You see, as a mama myself, to three little gals, I believe children's photography should remove many distracting props and focus on the joy of the little one. I do, however, like to use a few vintage inspired props in my children's sessions. This includes things like an antique quilt, adorable little classic chair, crate, box, bowl or a bucket. In this case, with sky high Houston temperatures, I designed a simple set up to let baby splash in tub. What little one does not enjoy a bubble bath? I used one of my favorite locations and had his sweet parents meet me for some fun!

Aside from fun splashing and playing, his mama requested a few traditional portraits of little one in an outfit she brought.

After portraits, little one was ready to explore and show off his walking skills! This is a really fun milestone for parents. The first steps are super special and during your child's session, I like to focus on the new things they're doing, such as walking, sitting up, clapping their hands, etc. You're welcome to bring a favorite toy, lovie or book, since these are truly special and will remind you of their childhood when they're older. All three of my little girls have a blanket they love, so these beloved comforts have made their way into my own family's photos. By letting your little one have fun and simply be who they are, their personalities shine and we truly capture who your kiddo is. Sometimes little ones are a bit more serious, other times they're full of laughter and spunk. Each child is different, which is completely okay. I promise! Moms: you'll look back on these precious moments and marvel at the beauty of your kiddo.

3 Adorable Ways to Wrap a Newborn Baby for Portraits | Zoya

Houston Newborn Photographer, Sarah Borchgrevink, offers stylish and unique newborn photography through the use of adorable, cozy wrapping. 

Welcome to the world, Zoya. 17 days new & breathtaking!

Good morning, friends! Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend filled with fun, family and friends. That's never a bad way to spend your leisure! Today, however, I'm ready to work and am excited to share details about the wrapping that's oh so special to me. It's a cornerstone of my newborn portraiture work and I like to tell parents what they may expect. Before we get started, I invite you to take a little look at my Houston Newborn Portrait Studio. It's located near Barker Cypress/290 with easy access to all major highways such as the Northwest Freeway, i-99, and i-10. 

Style Number One: Potato Wrap

The first style of cozy newborn wrapping I implement with each and every session is called the potato wrap. This wrap is absolutely precious because baby is snug and sleeps wonderfully here. I spend about 10 minutes perfecting the wrap. Parents always marvel at how round baby is and looks like a little potato, ha! I always style baby with a custom headband, such as below, or an adorable hand knitted bonnet. These small pieces add a classic touch to your session without deterring from your portraits. Baby should always be the star. I like for their hands to show, too, since you spend about 9 months growing baby, ha! I also use a flokati rug with each session. They add much texture and variety to our time together. I have many different color options in studio.

Style Number Two: Straight jacket 

The second wrapping style I implement is called straight jacket. While the name is a little bit serious, this simply means baby is wrapped with their arms close to their chest. This emulates the environment found in the womb. I typically pose baby on their back here so you may see the legs, face, sweet little fingers, and the light provides dynamic contours to their features. Part of what makes your session unique is the lighting, too. Aside from adorable wrapping, the light is dynamic and showcases baby in a stunning way. 

Custom Baby Portraiture Houston TX

All Tucked In

The "tucked in" pose is a major part of my wrapping workflow, too. Baby is already wrapped so perfectly, so this pose is a fun way to add another scene to your gallery. Babies love this because they feel safe; I make sure I pose them very carefully and always practice newborn safety techniques that I have learned through workshops and mentoring.

Houston Texas Newborn Portraits

Vintage & Rustic Inspire Floor Prop {My Favorite Bucket}

All of my prop shots, such as below, are built off of the wrapping. They're included in each and every single session, too. It's very important to me I be consistent in all that I do, so I follow the same flow for all of my collections. This also makes sure I stay on time and am able to work efficiently. When styling your prop shots, I like the tone to be organic, rustic and timeless. As always, baby should be the focus.

Style Number Three: Tootsie Wrap

Style number three is called tootsie wrap and, as I'm sure you may guess, this is because your baby's precious little toes are poking out. This is typically a favorite among new parents and they will ask what part of the session it will be showcased. This is always my third set up. I use a second floor props here. Like your first floor prop, it is usually an antique piece of something that's classic. The more simple your session is, the more timeless the final result will be. This session will forever preserve this incredibly special time in your life. I have three little ones myself, and am expecting number 4 later this year, so I can attest how much you'll love your custom portraits. Your baby deserves attention to detail.

Precious Macro Details

While not a specific wrap, macro images always take place at some point during the wrapping process. Different wrapping styles lend for different macro images. Sometimes parents ask me, "What are macro shots?" This is because they may not be familiar with the term. Macro images take place throughout your session; these are the up close details such as lips, eyelashes, toes, hairlines, hands, their nose, etc. These are also the characteristics of your baby that are completely unique to their own little person. You spent months envisioning their sweet little face and these macro images will freeze time. This period is fleeting; the newborn time frame is generally 3 weeks or less. Before you know it, baby will be a tumbling, tyrannical toddler full of adventure and wonder. You will fondly remember these details. I am honored to capture these for you. Working with your baby is the utmost privilege and everyday, when I enter my studio, I feel such happiness knowing this is my job.

Adorable Deliah's Jewel Tone Newborn Session in Houston TX

Located in Houston, Sarah Borchgrevink joyfully serves the entire area including, but not limited to, Meyerland, Bellaire, West University and Braeswood Place.

In Studio Photography for fresh, brand new babies & their parents.

Here's what Delilah's parents had to relay about their newborn experience at Sarah's studio:

We were referred to Sarah by another photographer who was fully booked around our due date - and I’m so grateful! Sarah provided an amazing newborn photo experience from the start! She was quick to reply via email to all my questions, and had great advice on how to make sure our little one snoozed the whole time. She was so gentle and sweet handling our daughter, and she was so fun to talk with while we watched her work! I highly recommend you allow her to pick the color schemes for your baby. We let her pick all the colors and our favorite pictures ended up being with colors I would have never thought to pick! We are definitely hoping to come back for family pictures each year!
Bellaire TX Newborn Photography

Howdy, friends! I'm excited you're here! As always, it's wonderful you stopped by. If you're here, you're probably looking forward to reading more details about this sweet baby girl. She visited at around 9 days new and is absolutely a true gem! Her parents booked the popular petite newborn collection, which is a really lovely option for parents who are looking for a little bit of everything. This includes family photos, images of Mom with Baby, Dad with Baby, several custom set ups featuring baby, and more! Custom set ups, if you're wondering, are designed with unique aspects in mind. For instance, I ask myself, "How will this color photograph? Have I used this before? What headbands looks nice with this bucket? How can I ensure the session is unique?" You see - I specialize in newborns, which means 99.99 percent of the sessions I take are new babies. I do take a handful of baby plans/maternity sessions, but I have a succinct focus on tiny, fresh new babies who are 2 weeks or less when they visit.

Here are some of my favorite images from Delilah's gorgeous session! :-)

Cozy Wrapped Newborn Photography | 2 Weeks Fresh & New

Sarah Borchgrevink Photography, located in Houston, serves the entire Houston area including Humble, Kingwood, Porter and New Caney Texas. See more of this adorable studio newborn session below.

Welcome Sweet Baby Girl | 2 Weeks New

Humble Texas Newborn Photographer

Good morning, y'all! Happy Tuesday to you! I hope everyone is having a great week. It sure is warm out, but that's something you're probably used to if you're from Houston and are living here during the summer months, ha! However, today I am at my desk catching up on business tasks so thankfully I have the a/c to keep me company, lol! If you follow my blog, you may know I am a Houston Newborn Photographer that serves the entire area including the suburbs of Humble, New Caney, Porter and Kingwood. Today's sweet baby girl features a variety of gorgeous images and unique colors. Let's get started! I am excited to preview a few images for you.

Baby Photographer Kingwood Texas

Something I pride myself on is providing much variety during your sessions. All collections include several set ups such as vintage floor props, gorgeous wrapping and textiles, up close details called 'macro images'; these macro images reflect the stunning characteristics such as your baby's lips, eyelashes, profile, nose, finger, toes, etc. They add much soul to your gallery and extra details to your gallery. I also really enjoy using colors you may not normally associate with a certain gender such as blue with girls or maybe burgundy with boys.

Northeast Houston Baby Portraiture

Wrapping babies in the most cozy of manners is a cornerstone of all my newborn portraiture. I like when they look like the perfect little package; the wrapping also adds texture and variety to your session, puts baby at ease, and allows me to move quickly. For example, I typically do a mini newborn session in about 45 minutes and a full newborn session in an hour and a half. This is great because you're able to get back to your life and not spend 4-5 hours in my studio. As a mom myself, I understand the first month of being a parent is absolutely exhausting and you may want to relax at home. While all of my newborn sessions do take place in studio, my studio space is really comfortable so you can feel laid back. I also have wifi to keep you entertained, too, ha! 

Isn't this baby girl precious? She visited at about 2 weeks new; she was born early so normally, newborn sessions take place around 5-10 days old, but closer to 3 weeks works if baby is premature. I also provide everything for baby to ease things for parents and ensure the images reflect my taste and style. For example, for the following images, there is a matching wrap, backdrop and head band, all custom made, for my time with this little one. Her full lips are truly beautiful. I know her parents spend hours holding her, gazing down at her features and marvel at the angel they created.

Rainbow Newborn Session in Houston TX | Emily

Sarah Borchgrevink is a premier newborn photographer serving the entire Houston area including Tomball Texas.

Here's What Emily's Sweet Parents had to say about their portraiture experience at Sarah's studio:

My family and I just got our newborn & family pictures done with Sarah and we were VERY impressed. She was so professional and gentle with our newborn and took beautiful shots of all of us. She was very friendly and made us feel very comfortable. I recommend her to anyone looking to get family or newborn pictures done!
Newborn Rainbow Photos Houston

What is a rainbow baby?

A “rainbow baby” is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. ... A rainbow baby brings light but by no means replaces the angel baby.

Greetings, friends! Howdy to you! Thanks for stopping by to see this super sweet baby session featuring an adorable family. They came to my studio when baby girl, named Emily, was 9 days old. They booked a petite newborn collection which includes the following:

PETITE NEWBORN COLLECTION

  • Two hour session featuring cozy wrapping as well as naked bean bag posing with full styling provided by photographer. Features (1) family pose, (1) sibling pose, (1) pose of Mom with Baby, (1) pose of Dad with baby. Also includes (2) floor props, flokati rug set up, a handful of naked bean bag posing, and macro images. 25 high resolution digital files delivered are delivered to you via digital download + print release and (3) 5x7” professional prints complete this collection.

This option is a great choice for parents seeking an array of unique and stunning baby photos of their sweet little one! I did include some extra sibling set ups since I felt this session is extra special. 

For my time with this family, we focused on all things sweet and simple; as always, I use a plethora of gorgeous wrapping to reflect the womblike posing I adore. I also pulled many vintage props because they create a classic tone. I'm inspired by textiles, texture, and creating stunning art pieces of your most precious love: your brand new baby.

Tomball Newborn Photographer: Sarah Borchgrevink

Here are my favorite images of my time with Emily! She slept like a champ - this is a dream for a newborn photographer! All babies are different and some like to sleep more than others; however, I do provide you with a detailed prep guide so you're told how to ensure baby has a great session. The prep guide also tells you what will happen so you're never in the dark during your session. It's a privilege to document your baby so I want you to have a fun time.

Wrapped Mini Newborn Session in Houston | 16 Days New

North Houston Newborn Photographer, Sarah Borchgrevink, offers stylish, fresh and authentic baby sessions to the entire Houston area including Spring, Cypress, Tomball & The Woodlands, TX.

Here's what this precious baby boy's parents had to say about their photo experience at Sarah Borchgrevink Photography's studio:

We recently had a baby boy and after a lot of research we chose Sarah for a mini newborn collection and we could not be happier with the whole experience.
On the same day of our shoot she landed in houston from her vacation and in-spite of her being extremely tired and exhausted she was very patient and has done an excellent job, I believe this shows her dedication and passion towards her work.
And I also had my family with me on the day of shoot and she had welcomed everyone very warmly, and she makes you feel very comfortable that its almost like your talking to your friend.
By the time we reached her studio she had all the props and also had picked the colors that my son would be seen in and I must say she has a brilliant taste, my son looked extremely handsome in those colors and the props adorably blended with the colors chosen.
She is very professional and very strict on herself. She thrives to give the best quality pictures to the client and she wont let go unless she is satisfied, which is commendable.
Finally I will surely recommend her to all my friends in and around Houston, because I can say that she has the best eye with babies hence gives you best shots.
Spring TX Newborn Photographer

Hi, friends! Welcome! I am thrilled to see you've found your way to my blog. Here is where I present the latest sessions I'm working on; from squishy cherub babies to radiant baby bumps and even the occasional family session, you will find much grace, beauty and fun times here. However, today you're in for a treat: an absolutely stunning little fellow came to my studio for a wrapped mini session. I adore newborn portraiture and it's my specialty; I strive to create fantastic portraits of my most petite, precious clients. From their chubby cheeks, tiny toes, and angelic features, I swoon and enjoy every minute of my time with them.

My wrapped mini collection is an awesome choice for parents who are seeking timeless and simplistic newborn portraiture. I serve the entire Houston area, but this sweet family came to me from Spring, TX - which is just north of beautiful Houston. I immediately welcomed them into my studio and we began an adorable session.

This popular collection comes with the following:

  • One hour session featuring cozy, beautifully wrapped newborn images with full styling provided by photographer. Includes (1) family pose, (3) unique styles of gorgeous wrapping, (2) floor props such as a bucket or bowl, (1) flokati rug set up, and macro images of up close details such as lips, eyelashes, toes, hands, etc. Please note this does not include naked bean bag posing. 20 high resolution digital files delivered are delivered to you via digital download + print release and (3) 5x7” professional prints complete this collection.

As you can see, it's a short session designed for parents seeking a variety of unique images while keeping baby very modest. Here are some of my favorite images from my time with baby boy. He visited at 16 days new and weighed just under 7 pounds. As always, I pulled inspiration from my array of vintage props and vibrant textiles.

Fun Outdoor Summer Watermelon Birthday Session in Houston TX

Happy birthday to cutie pie Collyns! Her outdoor & natural Light Children's Session features an adorable watermelon smash in Houston Texas.

Greetings, folks! Howdy to you! Welcome to my blog. If this is your first time visiting, you're in for a treat since I'm showing you a super adorable toddler today; however, if you've been here before you may notice I mostly feature newborn sessions. Nonetheless, many of these sweet babies happen to be baby plan clients, too, so at some point they do turn one or hit another milestone, such as 6 months, so here and there you'll see a post showing little ones, too.

Happy birthday to one of my long time clients! I first met this beautiful baby girl at her newborn session and it's already been a year! Her mama contacted me for one year portraits in a natural, outdoor setting. Since C's favorite food is watermelon, what better way to celebrate the big O-N-E than a sunrise session featuring vintage inspired images showing a precious baby eating watermelon, huh? Ha! 

Here are a few of my favorites from her watermelon themed first birthday shoot!

Houston Texas Baby Photographer

When we arrived, there was plenty of Texas heat and humudity to go around, but baby girl was all smiles. Such a pretty little love - her pink headband is too cute on her! We used a rocking horse from her nursery, too. The quilt is mine, but it is fun when clients bring special heirloom pieces from home. They add a special touch to your session. 

Child Photography Houston

After the rocking horse, we did a variety of sets up from the actual watermelon smash in my antique cream high chair to a bubble bath where baby can splash and play. After these, we let her have fun and sit on a quilt just enjoying her yummy fruit.

Kate’s Vintage & Organic Cake Smash | Cypress TX Child Portraits

Houston Photographer, Sarah Borchgrevink, offers an organic and vintage inspired baby plan membership to newborn clients. Kate's simple cake smash is a fun way to celebrate turning one.

Here's what Kate's Mama Had to say about her portraiture experience with Sarah:

Sarah truly loves her work and it shines through the photos she takes and extends through to her customer service. I found her on Facebook four months before my daughter was born and she allowed me to come out and meet her in person and discuss the colors and props for my baby’s newborn photo shoot. The day of the shoot she worked her magic and hit the mark for what I had envisioned. It has been a year since the newborn shoot and we just completed the one year photos, they are gorgeous!

Howdy, friends! Happy Friday, or Fri-yay, as we like to call it in my house, ha! I hope you're having a fantastic day and enjoying the cooler weather we're having. Well, at least for Houston. Today's blog post is going to share a little bit of information about my popular baby plan membership. I'll also showcase some exciting details about the styling behind cake smash and children's one year birthday sessions.

To begin, cake smash or baby milestone sessions are available to newborn clients only. Because I specialize in Houston Newborn Photography, these sessions are really fun for returning clients and a membership to my portraiture services is a wonderful way to document the first year of life since it's a consistent style, editing, wall art, and also someone who has developed a relationship with your kiddo. The membership is very flexible. Parents have the option of doing 3, 6, 9 or 12 months; they may also do any combination of the milestone. The most popular, nonetheless, is 6 and 12 months since this is when most of the changes occur.

Since my newborn style is timeless, fresh, simple and vintage inspired so are my  child milestone sessions. Gone are distracting props; instead, I focus on a few classic pieces so baby is the star. My studio is all white and looks classic. I have a bed, couch, and some cute items like a antique high chair and rocking horse for little ones to use. I also have a plethora of adorable headbands and accessories for your kiddos. Wardrobe is not included but I have a great list of vendors for you to consider. :-)

Caroline Lucy's Plum & Mauve Session | Newborn & Family Session

Fresh, Pure and Timeless Newborn Baby + Family Photography near Jersey Village. Welcome Baby Girl at 9 days new.

Jersey Village Newborn Photographer

Good morning, everyone! Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope you're gearing up for an exciting weekend as today is Thursday. I have a newborn coming in this morning so I am pretty excited about that since they're my specialty; however, before baby arrives at my studio I am looking forward to sharing one of the latest in studio newborn + family portraiture sessions I had the honor of documenting.

This adorable family visited my all white, organic studio, located in Houston, when baby was just around 8 days old. Her name is Caroline and she weighs 7 pounds. She has beautiful, full lips and the cutest little profile ever. Sweet little feet, button nose, and long fingers - truly a beauty! 

Her parents chose my "petite" collection which is a great newborn option because this session features a variety of custom set ups such as family images, baby with Mom, baby with Dad, (2) floor props, and (2) bean bag drops. I also do macro images, too, which are the detailed shots of your baby's features such as their fingernails, eyelashes, lips, etc. I like doing these because you spent 9 months dreaming of their face and imagining holding baby in your arms. A newborn portraiture collection is the perfect way celebrate this incredibly special time in your life. 

For family and parent images, I like the posing to be very laid back and connected; while it's nice to have a few of everyone looking "perfectly" at the camera, as a Houston mama to three little girls, I can tell you some of my most treasured images of my children are lifestyle in nature. This is where you naturally interact with little one. While I do give plenty of direction, I like to encourage you and your spouse to be who you are. Smile, laugh, play - talk about your favorite aspects of baby. Sometimes I also ask the parents to think about the first time they saw baby's heart beat at their doctor's appointment. This truly evokes a sense of wonder and genuine, authentic emotion.

Houston TX Family & Newborn Portraits

After the family portion of your newborn session, we move onto baby's individual shots. I always begin with wrapped set ups since this makes baby feel very safe, secure and happy. They adore being wrapped because this emulates the environemnt of the womb; they spent 9 months growing in 98.6 degrees, so my studio is also kept at a cozy 80 degrees to ensure baby is comfortable. I also play white noise so that baby sleeps soundly. This environemtn fosters the perfect newborn session because baby's happiness is kept forefreont at all times. 

Sarah Borchgrevink Photography 
Houston Baby Photographer

Her macro images of profile and lips are super cute! And this adorable knitted hat was given to me by one of my favorite vendors who makes most of my props. The plum set up truly makes baby skin's glow and she had a stunning tone to her. I also typically use darker, rich and vibrant color schemes since these look best against babies. I am not a fan of pastels since baby blends into the softer or muted neutrals. 

Katy & West Houston Baby Photography

For Caroline's floor props, I selected an antique, rustic bucket and also a vintage wooden cradle. These are some of my favorite props because they look awesome with a boy or girl; depending on how you style baby, you're sure to receive a variety of looks with simplistic props. Moreover, vintage inspired props reflect a timeless atmosphere and you're able to ensure the photos will forever look classic. I am a huge fan of simplistic images because they're fresh, pure and genuine; they allow your baby to shine. By removing many distracting props, your baby will forever be preserved and the star of the photos. I provide all props and styling to ensure the photos reflect my tastes and branding. Consistency is key for me.
