More Precious than Gemstones: Mia's Deep Purple & Vivid Teal Posing

Vibrant amethyst, orchid, lilac and lavender meets the richness of a blue-green turquoise color scheme for this jewel tone inspired newborn session with baby girl Mia!

Newborn Photography Houston | Unique Baby Photography by Sarah Borchgrevink

When working with fresh, new and gorgeous babies I adore creating amazing works of newborn fine art! This means the session is not a handful of snapshots but wonderfully finessed newborn posing. Part of the final product, however, is achieved by using interesting color schemes. For instance, in the case of precious baby girl Mia, who visited my Houston Newborn Photography studio at 7 days fresh, we pulled inspiration from jewel tones such as emerald and amethyst. 

Color, you see, is what makes for the best sessions! The contrast with a newborn's skin creates a creamy, polished look. While neutrals are what is currently popular, I urge parents to consider colors that showcase the beauty of their newborn. Light pink and blush, for instance, blend with baby's skin, but the vibrancy of a deep, vivid color is how you can elevate your newborn sessions.

Here are some of my favorite photos of my time with beautiful Mia!

Aquamarine, Teal and Turquoise | March Birthstone Accenting Spring

Aquamarine is the perfect accent color for spring. Featuring rich colors and symbolizing youth, health and hope this stone makes for a beautiful inspiration color palette! 

Using Sea Green, Turquoise, Teal, and Aqua in a Newborn Boy Session

It is no secret that I am a lover of all things blue, green and vibrant! This in mind, for the month of March I am very excited to present newborn sessions featuring aquamarine, which is the birthstone for this month. The rich color is a symbol of youth, health, and hope which pairs perfectly with bringing home a new baby. Reflecting spring and new life, this stunning accent color is an amazing option for a newborn session.

The birthstone has a fantastic sea-green hue which also looks fantastic with gold and silver materials. For example, the newborn boy I am showcasing today has a nursery with all things teal, turquoise, sea foam, and also copper and gun metals, too! Your newborn session is absolutely a great way to reflect the colors you like to have in your home. 

Moreover, aquamarine is known for its calming and soothing aura, so this is a great accompaniment to a newborn session in which we like to replicate a quiet environment when working with a baby.
