The Perfect, Timeless Locations for Pictures

Hi, gang! Today's blog post showcases a beautiful family session at an amazing venue called The Clubs at Houston Oaks. Located in Hockley, just about half an hour outside of Houston, this location is one of the most stunning venues I've ever had the honor of shooting at. While this venue is available to photographers only if your clients are members here, I've worked with this family before and this is their go-to spot for family photos. Aside from the countryside feel, rolling hills, manicured golf course, and of course the breathtaking overhanging oaks trees, this location is perfect because it's quiet and serene. You can see the families making memories here and enjoying quality time together, away from work and the pressures of life.

Here are a few of my favorite images from our time together! The tire swing is a super fun and whicmiscal element as little one loved swinging, playing, and just being a precious toddler! This age can be difficult to photograph, though as a professional baby and family portrait photographer, I've learned many tricks to working with young kiddos. Moreover, I do have four tots myself so being a mommy also teaches me much patience. When working with small children, the best trick is to find something they love doing, such as playing with Dad. Not only will the child have fun during the session, the final images will be soft, natural, carefree and evoke a sense of unconditional love between father and son.

The sunset lighting is pure magic here! Sun-kissed and radiant is the perfect timeless accompaniment to beautiful family photos.

Dad’s Little Football Player | How to Add a Special Prop from Home

Special request by parents: Lucas' sports inspired newborn boy session. Let's play some ball!

Greetings, friends! A common question I receive from parents is, "Can we bring a prop from home?" No worries! The answer is simple: YES. As a professional newborn photographer in Houston, I have a portrait studio catering to all things newborn and baby. I pride myself on offering a huge array of props and textiles to create lovely sessions. However, I also recognize parents often have a few ideas of their own. I delight in offering timeless and unique styled sessions and will happily incorporate a few of your own items into my session.

For example, when Lucas' sweet mama called to book her newborn collection, she relayed that Dad is a huge sports fan and they would love to showcase a few sports themed baby photography images during our time together. First and foremost: I was completely honored to hear from her because she was kind as can be, but also I knew I had a few great ideas up my sleeve to still maintain my newborn style while also incorporating a prop from the clients' house. 

Baby with Football during Posed Session

Little man Lucas visited at just 7 days new. He was a full term baby boy weighing over 8 pounds! So much gorgeous newborn rolls, chunk, and a cherub face that is too handsome! When adding a prop that is not found in my studio space, such as a football or other sport, there are a few spots you may easily add the item, such as the bucket, seen below, or even during the naked bean bag posing.

Timeless and Unique Newborn Set up with football | Styling and Vision

When styling a brand new baby's session, my motto is simple: vintage meets classic for timeless results. I use antique props and rustic floors to create dreamy images. I also like for the sessions to be very masculine for little boys and very dainty for girl babies. To add the football into the session I chose charcoal grey, heather grey, and a metal pail that pops against the barnwood floors and rich colored football. This is a wonderful compromise to be true to my own newborn photos (dreamy, gorgeous, classic images) without having too many distracting props that take away from the beauty of baby boy.

A second place to add the football into the session is during the naked bean bag posing. I love working with little ones during this set up because this showcases all of their adorable newborn features from their tiny fingers, chubby cheeks, long lashes, etc. I posed Lucas in forward-facing pose, seen above, and then added the football underneath him. Mom and Dad were right next to me helping me assist during this time. :-) Remember: baby's safety is of the utmost importance so it's always best to act with caution. 

There you have it! Two adorable yet timeless ways to add a special prop from home into your newborn session! Thanks for stopping by, friends! Keep on scrolling if you'd like to read more details about the professional portrait services provided by Sarah Borchgrevink Photography.

I'd love to meet your baby! Let's connect for your own session.

Robert will be the Best Big Brother | Pregnancy Photos with Family

The Beautiful G Family's Belly & Baby Portraiture Membership | Maternity & Newborn Package Bundles that also include family & sibling images to preserve this incredibly special milestone.

Sunrise Maternity Family Session with a dashing Big Brother

Good morning, everyone! Today's blog post chats about a super popular topic: the belly and baby portrait membership I offer, which is a great option if you're looking for outdoor, stunning pregnancy photos as well as gorgeous, in studio posed newborn photography.

Moreover, a common question I receive from expecting mothers are, "Who is included in the maternity session?" As always, please know your spouse and little ones are always welcome to participate in any of our sessions together. I welcome them as a beautiful addition to your portraits. They are part of your story and deserve to be showcased. There are no additional fees for this. Furthermore, during your newborn session, for instance, they are also fully inclusive meaning this is what you may expect:

Part of being one of the best options for newborn or maternity photography in Houston is offering a fantastic experience for parents! I do so by joyfully offering very transparent and easy to understand pricing while also including everyone in the session. You simply come to your appointment and leave the rest to me as I guide you throughout several poses at a timeless location! We will also chat about outfits, too, and I have a wonderful recommendation for professional hair & makeup services to ensure you feel confident in front of the camera. 

Please allow me to introduce the G family to you! From the moment Mom and Dad contacted me, they have been a complete joy to communicate and work with! They are happy, positive, upbeat, and are also expecting their second little one. Their session took place in Cypress, TX - which is right off 290 in NW Harris county! We chose sunrise since this is fantastic light! Moreover, early morning sessions are a good option for little ones since the sun is setting so much later during this time of the year. The light currently looks best around 7:45 PM, which is often right in the middle of bedtime routine for small children. This in mind, sunrise is a great session time. I also offer weekend appointments so this is helpful to working parents, too. 

My style: classic, timeless & stunning natural light
