14 Sweet & Fun Highlights From Outdoor Family Sessions During the Fall of 2017
Houston Family Photography by Sarah Borchgrevink | Favorite Families & Little Ones
Good morning, everyone! Today you're in for a treat filled with cuteness because I am previewing 14 adorable families from the 2017 outdoor family fall season. As the season winds down, I am filled with gratitude for the many families who have entrusted me to document their outdoor portrait sessions. Please note if you asked for your photos to remain private or not be previewed, I've kept them under wraps, of course. If this is your first time here, welcome! My name is Sarah! I am a Houston photographer specializing in posed newborn portraits, however, I also take a handful of outdoor maternity or family sessions per month.
Here are 14 of my favorite images from the 2017 fall season! Hope you enjoy checking out all the cuteness and sweet families!
The Z Family
This sweet family is truly a joy to document! Our session took place at Telge Park during sunrise and they traveled to me from the Heights area of Houston. Mom and Dad are expecting a baby girl in January so you'll see them soon on the blog once baby comes in for her wrapped newborn mini session. This family is favorite of mine because we've done other sessions together, such as a 6 month milestone, too, in studio. I cannot wait to see them again! Here is what they wrote about our time together:
"Sarah is wonderful to work with. She has a great eye and captured so many wonderful moments of our family that it is nearly impossible to choose which photos will make it onto the wall! Highly recommend Sarah!"
The R Family | Sunset Baby Bump + Maternity
This family is a favorite 2017 fall session of mine because we simply connected. I am also super excited to see them again soon because they're on the calendar for a full posed newborn session in my Houston Baby Studio. They are coming this week with their brand new fresh baby so I cannot wait to document this time for them! Their maternity session took place in one of my favorite outdoor family session locations in Houston; the waterfall! Truly a beautiful expecting couple and I am excited to see them begin their family and parenthood journey. All my joy to this sweet clan and I look forward to our baby session this week. Here's what they wrote via a Google review about our time together:
"Sarah did wonderful job with Maternity Shoot, looking forward for our new born soon. Highly recommended, affordable,professional. we received our pictures on time as promised, very easy to work with."
The S Family
The S family is truly magnificent! Not only are their outfits adorable, but they also were a breeze to photograph. They're handsome little boy is about to turn one, so we focused on gorgeous outdoor family photography during sunrise. It was a little chilly during our time together, but it was a great reprieve from the warm Houston heat we typically have year around. We photographed their session in Cypress, TX near 290 and Telge. Mom's dress is also perfect! Here's what they relayed about their experience:
"Our family photos came out absolutely stunning. We got some beautiful lighting and Sarah was extremely comforting and enthusiastic during shooting.
I had wanted some very early morning bright light and it ended up being a little shadier than we wanted but she made the lighting beautiful nonetheless.
The turnaround time is amazing. And I will be purchasing prints from her in the future as well ; she sent me some sample prints and the quality is much nicer than a photo shop would be. I need to hurry up and get my frames!"
The S Family
The S family is a favorite of mine from fall 2017 because we simply had a great time during our outdoor sunset session in Houston! When these photos were taken, Mom was just a few weeks pregnant and they also booked a petite posed newborn collection with me, so stay tuned: their baby is arriving in March and you'll be seeing them on the blog again! Here is what Mom expressed about their session outcome:
"Wonderful photographer and person! We had the loveliest fall family shoot with Sarah and look forward to our future family sessions with her."
The S Family
The S family is near and dear to me because they've always been so kind to me. I first met them when mom inquired into an outdoor, natural light maternity & posed newborn session when she was pregnant with little boy. Once baby turned one, she booked an outdoor family photography session in Cypress, TX for sunrise. Here's what Mom said about their session:
"Sarah has done both our newborn posed session and a first year family session. I have ABSOLUTELY LOVED every single picture she has taken and produced. Sarah is a wonderful photographer and goes above and beyond to help you not only save these memories, but make new ones as well. We will definitely use Sarah again!"
The S Family
The S family is a favorite 2017 fall outdoor family photography session because I felt like it was a great chance to work on something new. Most of my clients have really young children, so working with older "tweens" was a great way to expand my portfolio and type of family posing I've encountered.

The Z Family + Nolan Turns One
The Z family is a favorite of mine because they're extremely kind, warm and just completely lovely! For instance, I first met them over a year ago when they booked a posed newborn collection for their sweet little boy, Nolan. When Mom contacted me to book an outdoor first year session, I could not wait to see them again! Their session took place in NW Houston near 290/Fry and we began at sunrise for some lovely, soft light. Here's what these sweet parents had to say about their session:
"Sarah is amazing! She did our newborn session and my son's 1st birthday session and I cannot say enough about her. She makes the sessions so fun and exciting and easy. Her work is flawless and she is so flexible and professional. She helps you throughout the whole process from getting ready for the session to your final selection of the pictures. She is such a joy to work with and a true artist. I can't wait for many more photo sessions with her."
The P Family
The P family is a gem! I originally met them at an outdoor maternity session which took place in downtown Houston at the lovely Buffalo Bayou and then they invited for to also do a posed newborn session for them. When they booked an outdoor family session, I was thrilled to see them again! We did a sunrise session in honor of their darling little girl turning the big one. Here's what Mom had to say about their experience with working with Sarah:
"Sarah is amazing to work with! She is incredibly professional and talented and is adamant that her clients receive the utmost best care start to finish. She listens to all your needs and adjusts all while making sure she maintains the highest possible photographic quality and products! Her patience is hard to come by and she doesn't settle for less than the best photos she can possibly take. She did maternity and newborn pictures for us and they are awesome but most of all; she is amazing with little bitty babies and keeping them happy during their session! We have the cutest pictures and can't wait to hang up the beautiful prints and canvas work she helped us select for the nursery! Can't wait to do more work with her in the future!"
The B Family | Brody is 6 Months New
The B family is the best! Not only do they drive all the way from Waller, TX, they also are just fantastic as can be because they're super laid back, easy going, and have the most stunning little boy named Brody. I first met them at their posed newborn session, though they're also booked for a 6 month session and a 12 month session, so you'll see more of them on the blog soon. Their session took place in Houston during sunset in one of my favorite fields. Here's what Mom wrote about their experience:
"I couldn't be happier with the way our newborn session turned out. The experience in the studio was wonderful. Sarah is super sweet and is a true professional when handling newborns. The final results were amazing, I wanted every picture! I highly recommend Sarah!"
The S Family
The S family is always a favorite! I first met their sweet kiddos during their lifestyle in home newborn session. While I am not currently offering lifestyle family newborn photography, as I have moved to posed in studio only, I adored working out of their home and capturing this time for them. They also chose a baby plan membership, which means we did both a 6 month milestone session + family photos and of course an adorable cake smash session.

The H Family
The H Family is favorite of mine because we've had many sessions together! They originally booked for a posed newborn session, however, they quickly moved over to a baby plan membership, featuring 6 and 12 month photos. Now little one is 18 months old and it was a joy to catch up and see them again. See more of their session as I share details about bringing your fur baby to a photo session. Here is what Mom wrote about their newborn session experience, and it made my day:
"Sarah is not only an incredible photographer but also a very sweet and kind! She was able to work in a newborn session of my little cherub on very short notice (panicky first time mom here...) and then despite some extenuating circumstances, still turn around photos very quickly. I cannot wait for our 6 month photo session with Sarah!"
The B Family
This darling family is favorite of mine because they're sweet as can be! Truly the most wonderful, gracious, kind people. They make my heart so happy because when I work with them, they're just easy as can be, trust me during the session design, and also are completely in love. For instance, during their posed newborn session, I was completely enraptured as Dad told me the adorable way he proposed (with a kitten!) and how he made Mom's ring. It is an honor to have hung out with them and I look forward to seeing baby for a 12 month session. When working together, here's a Google review Mom left, and it's super kind!
"Wow!! I am so glad I found Sarah, she not only captured the most amazing photographs of our sweet baby, but she is such an amazing person as well. She made sure we all felt comfortable with everything that was going on, which is nice. As a new mommy, you don't really want to be passing your brand new baby to someone else, but I felt completely comfortable having Sarah handle and pose my little. She also took the time to get to know us and by the end of our session, it felt like we were all long time friends! If you're looking for a phenomenal newborn photographer here in Cypress, definitely check Sarah out!"
The W Family
The W Family is always a joy to see! We first met during their posed newborn baby session and they traveled into Houston from beautiful Spring, TX. They are truly a gorgeous family and I always adore chatting with them! I hope to see them for a 12 month session, however, their outdoor fall family photos took place right when baby turned 6 months so such a treat! Here is what Mom relayed about their newborn session.
"We recently did a new born photo shoot for our 8 day old son. From the moment we walked in the door she was so sweet and gentle with our baby, Sarah is very personable and makes you feel very comfortable for the couple hours that you are there for. Our baby slept almost the entire session, the room was kept nice and warm for the baby and the props and colors she chose were cute and perfect. The price for the packages were very reasonable for the amount of time and care she takes with your little one! We Highly recommend her for anyone looking for great, perfectly posed newborn photos!"
The S Family
The S family is a baby plan membership client of mine and I am a little bummed to see they've finished up their membership. However, they're also so kind and gracious I cannot help but adore them! Plus, they have the most beautiful little girl named Avery. If you've ever been in my studio, she is one of the babies on my gallery wall art grouping in mint, ha!
