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.

Caroline Lucy's Plum & Mauve Session | Houston Newborn & Family Session

Fresh, Pure and Timeless Newborn Baby + Family Photography near Jersey Village. Welcome Baby Girl at 9 days new.

Jersey Village Newborn Photographer

Good morning, everyone! Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope you're gearing up for an exciting weekend as today is Thursday. I have a newborn coming in this morning so I am pretty excited about that since they're my specialty; however, before baby arrives at my studio I am looking forward to sharing one of the latest in studio newborn + family portraiture sessions I had the honor of documenting.

This adorable family visited my all white, organic studio, located in Houston, when baby was just around 8 days old. Her name is Caroline and she weighs 7 pounds. She has beautiful, full lips and the cutest little profile ever. Sweet little feet, button nose, and long fingers - truly a beauty! 

Her parents chose my "petite" collection which is a great newborn option because this session features a variety of custom set ups such as family images, baby with Mom, baby with Dad, (2) floor props, and (2) bean bag drops. I also do macro images, too, which are the detailed shots of your baby's features such as their fingernails, eyelashes, lips, etc. I like doing these because you spent 9 months dreaming of their face and imagining holding baby in your arms. A newborn portraiture collection is the perfect way celebrate this incredibly special time in your life. 

For family and parent images, I like the posing to be very laid back and connected; while it's nice to have a few of everyone looking "perfectly" at the camera, as a Houston mama to three little girls, I can tell you some of my most treasured images of my children are lifestyle in nature. This is where you naturally interact with little one. While I do give plenty of direction, I like to encourage you and your spouse to be who you are. Smile, laugh, play - talk about your favorite aspects of baby. Sometimes I also ask the parents to think about the first time they saw baby's heart beat at their doctor's appointment. This truly evokes a sense of wonder and genuine, authentic emotion.

After the family portion of your newborn session, we move onto baby's individual shots. I always begin with wrapped set ups since this makes baby feel very safe, secure and happy. They adore being wrapped because this emulates the environemnt of the womb; they spent 9 months growing in 98.6 degrees, so my studio is also kept at a cozy 80 degrees to ensure baby is comfortable. I also play white noise so that baby sleeps soundly. This environemtn fosters the perfect newborn session because baby's happiness is kept forefreont at all times.

Her macro images of profile and lips are super cute! And this adorable knitted hat was given to me by one of my favorite vendors who makes most of my props. The plum set up truly makes baby skin's glow and she had a stunning tone to her. I also typically use darker, rich and vibrant color schemes since these look best against babies. I am not a fan of pastels since baby blends into the softer or muted neutrals.

For Caroline's floor props, I selected an antique, rustic bucket and also a vintage wooden cradle. These are some of my favorite props because they look awesome with a boy or girl; depending on how you style baby, you're sure to receive a variety of looks with simplistic props. Moreover, vintage inspired props reflect a timeless atmosphere and you're able to ensure the photos will forever look classic. I am a huge fan of simplistic images because they're fresh, pure and genuine; they allow your baby to shine. By removing many distracting props, your baby will forever be preserved and the star of the photos. I provide all props and styling to ensure the photos reflect my tastes and branding. Consistency is key for me.
