Outdoor Family First Birthday Session Cake Smash in Houston

The M Family's Natural Light & Outdoor Family Cake Smash Combination in honor of Baby Boy Jeremy turning the big one.

Here's what Jeremy's parents had to say about their baby plan membership to Sarah Borchgrevink Photography:

Sarah is absolutely fantastic. Not only are her pictures superb, but her professionalism, personality, and all around demeanor are top notch. We are baby plan clients and at our of  sessions Sarah has been very easy to work with and has taken our specific likes and wants and incorporated them into our sessions. The best part by far is her turn around time. At our sessions we received our online gallery within a week of our session! I highly recommend Sarah for newborn and family photography!

Friends, good morning! I am excited to blog this incredibly adorable children's session in which we did a family + birthday photo shoot for one of my longtime clients. The M family first contacted me while Mom was pregnant; they booked a baby plan membership, which is a wonderful way to preserve the first year of life for your precious little one.

The Baby Plan Membership is any of the following combination:

  • In studio posed newborn session (wrapped mini, petite or full collection) of your choice
  • Any combination of 3, 6, 9 or 12 month milestone session

In this case, this sweet couple chose to do a full newborn collection as well as 6 and 12 month session. This is the most popular combination since many parents see the most difference in growth between newborn and 6 months; followed by 6 and 12 month differences. Here are some of my favorite images from our sunrise session.

Family Photos Take Place First 

Family sessions are lifestyle in nature, meaning I embrace the spirit of your family. I encourage you to play with your kiddo, interact with your spouse and feel at ease. Family photos take place at the beginning so that little one has time to warm up to me. Plus, baby will be smashing a cake after the family part so this makes sure baby is clean for your family images, ha!

Individual Photos of Baby Are after family

The milestone portion of your child's session follows the family set ups. Milestone portion is where we focus on developmental changes since our last session together. For 12 months, it's usually standing or walking, pulling up, clapping their hands, smiling, and really showcasing their personality.

Let Them Eat Cake

After baby's individual portion of milestone images, we then focus on the cake smash aspect of your session. I provide timeless and vintage inspired props for this session, but also ensure baby is the focus of our time together, too. I do not like distracting aspects in the images so props are kept to a minimum so baby will be the shining star. Examples of props I may bring as things like an antique high chair, quilt, crate, etc. Due to allergy purposes, I have parents bring the cake. You may go as festive or minimalist as you like. :-) Outdoor cake smash or first birthday sessions always take place right around sunrise or sunset, too, for optimal lighting. You're given a location list to pick from so have no worries: I have lots of good options for you!

It's all in the details

An important aspect to me is the details of your session. I love showing off their little toes, messy hands, sweet up close shots of their faces, etc. While we do include many images of baby playing, exploring and checking out the cake, I adore showing all those precious moments Mamas are sure to love. Their little fingers, for instance, reaching for the cake is absolutely precious as can be! They're only little for a short time. Let them be small. This cake smash encourages them to be who they are and their personalities to shine through.

The perks of a baby plan membership:

This in mind, I have immensely enjoyed getting to know their sweet family. So far, I've had the honor of photographing their outdoor, natural light maternity session and the posed newborn photos, too.

Perfect Golden Light + The Sweetest Evening Spent | Family Photos

Swoon worthy golden light and the most precious toddler + her awesome parents! What  a fun evening!

Family Photography Spring TX | Natural Light & Outdoor Portraits

Good morning to you! I'd like to thank you for stopping by my blog to see one of the latest beautiful family portraiture sessions I'm previewing. As a photographer, I am based in Houston, though I serve the surrounding suburbs and areas such as Tomball, Spring, Katy, The Woodlands, Rice Village, Cypress, and many others! I delight in photographing all things baby and family. Nothing makes my heart sing quite like connecting with a family, spending the evening (or sunrise!) with you as we hang out, let your session develop organically, and make sure the experience is customer service driven.

If you ever stop by my blog, you've probably seen this family before. They are some of my favorite clients. We've done essentially every type of session together; maternity, newborns, in home lifestyle family photography, child milestone sessions such as 3, 6, 9 and 12 month portraits. In addition, we've even done a cake smash and updated, outdoor family photography in the most stunning natural light. Seeing them puts a smile on my face and I always adore presenting them with a new gallery. Seeing little one change and grow is a joy!

For our most recent session, we used a location in Northwest Houston; I like this spot because it's fantastic for both morning or evening light. It also has plenty of open space for little one to run and play! It features yummy golden light and is never crowded. 

My motto for all of your sessions is simple: Let Them Be Little. I enjoy working with young children because each and every single kiddo marches to the beat of their own drum. Some are wild and free whereas other little ones are curious and cautious. No matter, I embrace their individual spirit. Posing is always connected and warm; I never force little one into anything and often the session is not necessarily everyone looking at the camera and smiling, but more about holding baby close to you, breathing in her scent, basking in the glory of childhood. Because it IS sacred. And fleeting. Before you know it, little one is now a mighty toddler and then you blink and they're school aged. I can attest to this because I'm often in awe of how quickly time goes by, especially when I see repeat clients like this family. It lends perspective: document this time now. You'll treasure these images. From the way baby feels in your arm, to their laugh, to the way the toddle forward as they learn to walk. These milestones are what makes your baby who she is.
