Let’s Go to the County Fair | Houston Cake Smash & Family Session

Located in Northwest Houston, Sarah Borchgrevink Photography offers natural light, on location family sessions. In addition to gorgeous outdoor portraits, Sarah also offers child milestone sessions such as cake smash photography. Check out this darling county fair themed cake smash!

Outdoor & Natural Light Cake Smash | County Fair Theme

Howdy, friends! Welcome to my blog! Today's post focuses on adorable children's cake smash session as well as the family portion of his one year photography session. As a photographer, I do specialize in newborn portraits, however, I offer a limited number of outdoor, natural light family photography appointments as well as darling children's portraits for your little ones, too. :-) Today's post is all about a super sweet family! We used one of my favorite locations in Cypress, but the parents were total rock stars and came from Pearland. The good thing about Houston is that we have many major highways so traveling is generally pretty easy. 

For this cake smash + family session combination, Mom told me baby's birthday party theme is a county fair so she wanted to incorporate that into his cake smash. I am a prop minimalist so that baby may be the focus; we used a vintage high chair, a cute set of balloons and then a sign Mom brought. The star of the smash is Baby but a cute cherry pie is what we used to smash. So cute! Simple, easy details. Moms: don't make things harder than they need to be. This is something I cannot stress enough.

Here are my favorite images of our time together!

Outdoor Family Photography | Sweet Baby Boy & His Doting Parents

This portion of the session was a lot of fun for me to document because family connections are everything. As a mama, I can tell you how special it is to have images of your entire family interacting. I like my family portrait sessions to be lifestyle in nature meaning you cuddle, kiss, toss baby into the air. Everything should feel warm and natural. Be who you are. Enjoy being with your spouse and children. This time is sacred and these sweet memories will be truly wonderful to look back on and admire! My sessions take place specifically at sunrise or sunset; in this case, we shot at sunset since the location faces east. The stunning, golden light adds much warmth to the images and emphasises love. Truly my favorite time of the day!

Houston Newborn Photographer | 5 Color Alternatives to Pink

Newborn Photographer, Sarah Borchgrevink, is located in Houston. Here are some color alternatives to pink for your babies session. 

5 Color Schemes for a Newborn Session that Aren't Pink

Greetings, friends! Good morning to you! I hope everyone is doing well and is having a great Friday. :-) As always, I'm excited you're here. Today I am going to be writing about some color options that are great to consider. Now, before I begin this please know I have nothing against the color pink. It's very popular among parents. I choose to sometimes use pink, too. It's dainty and showcases all these girly. After all, certain color schemes will always be associated with each gender. For instance, when my husband, Kevin, and I chose to announce our latest pregnancy, we used blue so there was no confusion that we're expecting a little boy. However, as a portrait artist, I joyfully delight in providing all props and items for your session. It's important to me the session be both unique and special. Pink is a typical color found in girl collections, so this is may way of designing something a little outside of the box. 

Here's what a recent had to say about her gorgeous, jewel tone session (that did not include any pink):

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!

Part of your stress free portraiture experience includes leaving everything to me. You arrive at my studio, located in NW Houston, and everything is ready to go. Just bring baby and their diaper bag. Leave the rest to me. I encourage you to be surprised by all the neat colors I have on hand.

Let's get started! For this post, I'm excited to use a little lady who came to my studio at just a week old. She is 6 pounds and has the most amazing skin! She loved to be wrapped, but we also did some really cute bean bag sets up, too. :-) 

GREEN

Green is a huge favorite of mine! This is because green looks gorgeous on little girls; you can pull kelly, sage, mints, and also tie in many darker hues to ensure baby's skin has a beautiful, soft glow.

BURGUNDY

As always, I adore maroon or burgundy colors. They remind me of a rich, vibrant wine tone and lend a timeless feel simply because they're elegant.

grey

Grey is a great color for a newborn baby girl session because it is neutral, soft and feminine. With each baby I have in studio, I typically will do a grey set up of some sort. Not only does this add a neutral aspect to your gallery, it is clean and looks nice on most skin tones. Grey can also be lighter, such as heather grey, but also may be darker, such as the charcoal scheme. Either way, I like them all. I hope you do, too!

NAVY BLUE

I like navy blue during girl newborn sessions because it's a little bit unexpected. It's also majestic and lends a graceful tone to your session. For parents who are worried that they session may look a tiny bit masculine, have no fear: I always use a tie back piece or headband, seen below, to suggest baby's gender. I do completely acknowledge it's fun for everyone to know baby is a girl, if she's a girl, of course, ha!

Purple or Plum

Purple or plum are absolutely ethereal colors for our time together. I do admit I generally prefer richer, more vibrant purples but I also have plenty of lavendar and softer, muted tones on hand. I keep your baby's skin tone in mind when pulling colors, so I will always ask for a little bit of information about baby once baby is actually born.

Following the session, this sweet baby girl's parents left the following review about my portraiture services. I hope this inspires you to let me fully style your session and enjoy what I've designed just for your new cherub.

The first time I am leaving a review for someone. Very very well deserved 5 stars. If you are looking for a new born session, look no further. The way she handles new born children is absolutely amazing. Its quite a sight to see her engrossed with your little one trying to ensure every single shot is picture perfect.

Pro Tip: Let her plan the entire session.Colors, props, pose everything. Just leave it to her and relax. 

Thank you so much Sarah for giving us something we will treasure for a life time.

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.

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.

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.
