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!

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!

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.

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.

Newborn Baby Portraits in Houston TX

Howdy, friends! Thanks for stopping by. If you follow my portraiture work, you may know I specialize in posed newborn photography. While there are many different styles of baby photos, I really enjoy soulful color schemes and truly vibrant  lighting. This makes your session super special and allows me to show how I see newborns; they deserve to be preserved in the most lovely of ways. This in mind, I offer three collections for parents to peruse. They cater to different budgets. There is a wrapped mini, petite or full. All collections do come with high resolution digital files and of course some nifty heirloom prints since it's important you walk away with a tangible professional product.

Baby boy Banks came to my studio when he was around 2 weeks old. As soon as his mama carried him in, he was sleeping so soundly I almost did not want to wake him! Mom let me help her feed him and get him out of his carrier; holding him close to my chest, I could not help but marvel at what a beautiful baby he is. So sweet, snuggly, and loved to be held. I could have hung out with him all day!

For his session, I used a color scheme reflecting teal, navy blue and grey. His wrapped mini collections also features two floor props and a few different styles of wrapping plus macro images. Here are just a few of my favorite images from his session. Hope you enjoy!

Here's what Banks' sweet mama had to say about her newborn portraiture experience:

"I live in Cypress, Texas and started my search for the best newborn/child photographer in the area. I came across Sarah's work and immediately fell in love. From my first contact with her up until I received my photos- she was extremely professional and organized.

When the kids and I arrived at her studio (which was extremely nice btw) she had a written plan for our session. I could also tell how passionate she was about her work. She talked about the adorable newborn wraps she'd be doing and took the time to explain things because she saw I was interested. She mentioned she keeps up with her classes, but upon walking in I could tell Sarah was a pro.

She made sure my infant and my toddler were perfectly comfortable the entire session. I also throughly enjoyed hanging out with her. It can me hard being new mom and it was nice getting out. She made it fun. Before we left, Sarah let me decide if I wanted her to share photos on social media and when I said yes she told me the dates I'd receive our photos via a link on email and sneak peek on Instagram and Facebook. Again, it was refreshing to meet another Mama with awesome organizational skills and passion for what they do.

I was blown away by our photos when I received them!!!!!! As my Aunt said, "she is a true artist." I will treasure my son's infant photos and our sibling photos forever. I told her she completely outdid herself. She seriously has a gift and I'm incredibly thankful to have worked with her. I would recommend Sarah Borchgrevink Photography over and over again. She is the best newborn/child photographer around!"
