Houston Infant Photography | Colorful Newborn Session at 7 Days

Colorful & Vibrant Tones during a 7 Day Old Newborn Baby Boy Portraiture Session in Houston Texas

Welcome Handsome Little One | Laksh at 7 Days Old

Greetings to you! Welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah and I'd love to welcome you. First and foremost: thank you for stopping by! I am a Houston Newborn Photographer specializing in all things squishy baby portraits. I delight in designing vibrant, soulful an vintage inspired sessions to preserve this incredibly special time in your life. Through the use of dynamic lighting and impeccable retouching, I present you with the most lovely gallery of images. You're sure to treasure these for a lifetime! 

To begin, today's blog post focuses on a little boy who visited my studio at just 6 days new! He weighed just under 7 pounds and had a stunning head full of hair. He slept wonderfully for our time together and we had a great time. His parents chose the petite newborn collection, which is my middle collection; it has a little bit of everything from sweet parent posing, antique floor props, and even some curly, oh so darling posing.

I pride myself on offering a great experience, too! My newborn studio is conveniently located in Northwest Houston with easy access to all major freeways and toll roads. I am about 20 minutes outside the 610 loop, half an hour from The Woodlands and North Houston, or half an hour from areas like Bellaire, too. 

Here are some of my favorite images from my time with this handsome little one. Keep reading for more details, images, or if you're curious about booking your own newborn session, I am happy to assist you.

The "froggy pose" for bean bag

The froggy pose for bean bag is a favorite among parents. It is, however, done as a composite to ensure newborn safety. I have taken several workshops on how to carefully pose brand new babies. I also like to do two different angles if possible. This adorable, custom bonnet is from one of my favorite European vendors and then the super soft, darling sage wrap is from a great gal here in the states.

Flokati Rug Set Up + Wrapping Style Number One: Potato Pose

Each collection comes with a flokati rug set up. Here is where we do the potato pose. Baby's love this and being wrapped keeps them so happy! Wrapping is a huge part of my newborn style and I urge to ensure this is a good fit for your aestetic preferences.

MACRO IMAGES | UP CLOSE + SUPER SWEET DETAILS

The macro portion is always lovely because these up close details are the characteristics that are unique to your baby. These can be lips, nose, ears, toes, hands, etc.

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.
