Honored to Photograph Stunning Women | Mothers Day 2018

Check out the recent mothers Sarah had the privilege to photograph. Houston Maternity, Family & Newborn Baby Portrait Photographer 

Mamas in Studio & Outdoors | Celebrating Mommy & Baby Portraits

Greetings and good morning to you, friends! Howdy! Happy early Mothers Day! I have been looking forward to this blog post because aside from being a full time portrait photographer, I have the honor of being the mommy to my four little ones: Emma, Lucy, Amelia and Jack. I jokingly call them "the tiny tribe of wild women" and "chief Jack" because I cannot help but see the humor in things, especially with the spirited dynamic  surrounding having four children. Nevertheless, humor aside, Mothers Day is an absolutely awesome holiday! Yes, yes - I know it's sometimes viewed as a Hallmark Holiday meant to sell cards and flowers, but there is a lot more to celebrating Mothers Day than gifts.

From the moment you hear your child's heartbeat, you are tied to them for life. There is nothing more amazing than holding a brand new life in your hands or feeling the gentle and soft kicking of you baby as they grow in your belly.

This in mind, I am excited to showcase recent sessions featuring beautiful mothers in a portraiture setting. If this is your first time visiting, please allow me to explain: My name is Sarah Borchgrevink (Bork-Grey-Veenk) and I am a Houston TX Newborn Baby Portrait Photographer also offering some of the Best Maternity Photos in the NW Harris County area. I also work with young families, too, and I cannot express the joy I feel in calling this my full time job since 2013. 

Motherhood is a never ending adventure. This inspires me to create stunning pregnancy portraits as this is the beginning of documenting all that is beautiful about expecting a little one. For instance, I joyfully offering a la carte packages for newborn, maternity and family sessions, but in addition to single sessions I am super thrilled to share that I also offer bundled portraiture memberships meaning you can select Baby's First Year, Maternity + Baby's First Year as well as a Belly & Baby Membership, so this pricing does reflect a discount for clients booking multiple sessions. In return, you receive mother and child portraits at every stage of our time together. There are no hidden fees or add on's: each session always includes beautiful set ups of you and your baby from the maternity session, to the newborn portraits, even at the sitter 7 month milestone session and the 12 month smash and splash (which are SO SO SO SO fun!).

Without further delay, please allow me to share some of the most gorgeous mamas who have worked with my studio (and on location!) recently.

Rainbow Baby Girl Calista | Cutest Houston Newborn Photography

Sarah Borchgrevink Photography offers timeless, fresh and unique baby photography. Calista + her sweet parents visited the studio at 11 days new.

Hi, friends! Good morning to you! Happy Friday! Today is a great day here in Houston. The sun is shining, it's about 80 degrees out, and I have a full calendar of fun shoots geared up for this weekend. However, up first is an adorable studio session focusing on a precious baby girl. If this is your first time at my blog, welcome! I'm excited you're here. 

In case you're interested, C's parents booked both a natural light, outdoor maternity session that took place during sunset . This is a huge treat for me because it's fun to work together before we document your newborn baby's session. This is also a great idea for clients because it ensures the editing style is the same so all of your wall art is cohesive and matches, plus it means you've met the person who will be handling your new baby. As a mama, I completely understand who you choose to photograph your newborn is a huge deal! I am currently pregnant with baby number 4 and just booked me own newborn session for him; I did a TON of research! 

Also: before we dive into the session I have to brag a little bit. Mom is a super talented hair and make up artist serving the entire Houston area. I refer her to all of my clients so here's a little more information about her professional beauty services in case you're ever looking for someone to make some magic, ha! She also is extremely sweet, giving, kind and a joy to work with. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She's located close to my studio, too, so it's really convenient. 

Let's get started, shall we? :-) 

Family and Parent Images 

For family and parent images, I like to wrap baby in a soft neutral color so as not to detract from baby's elegance. For little boys, I generally leave them without a bonnet or hat, however, for little ladies, like Calista, I will adorn their sweet heads with a lovely flower crown, headband or tie back. In this particular instance, I used a pink and purple headband by one of my favorite newborn prop vendors since this reflects the colors in baby's nursery. This vendor is located in the UK, but makes amazing items! Check her out. :-)

Rainbow Baby Girl | Calista at 11 days fresh & new

You may be asking yourself, "What's a rainbow baby?" According to kick's count, a rainbow baby is:

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. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.

The mama natural blog also elaborates explaining that:

Like the miracle of a rainbow after a storm, many mamas refer to babies born after loss as their rainbow babies.  The rainbow doesn’t erase the storm, nor does the arrival of a new baby eclipse the tragedy of previous pregnancy loss.

Calista and her parents stopped by for a full newborn collection when she was 11 days fresh and new. Weighing over 9 pounds, her chubby cheeks and adorable features truly made my heart melt. I could not help but marvel at her beauty and tell her mama how lucky she is. 

This collection is about 2 hours long. This gives plenty of time for baby to be fed, soothed, etc., and also allows for diaper changes and a relaxed atmosphere.

There's something especially fresh and pure about using white during a newborn session. While I am a really big fan of all things vibrant, I do include neutrals here and there since it adds a timeless element to your gallery. All of my headbands, tie backs, bonnets and hats are custom designed by small business owners so there's a huge selection.

This super cute floor prop is a dream! I wish it was mine, but Mom did bring it in. It looks perfect again the burgundy!

Followed by the vintage Dr. Pepper box, we used one of my favorite buckets. The sage green looks lovely on her. Green, you see, is one of those colors parents don't always consider. That's part of my job during session design: coming up with neat combinations for you. 

Humble TX Photography: Newborn Portraiture

The vintage cradle is one of my other favorite props. This is because the prop can be styled to reflect the gender of baby. In this case, we used a soft mauve that's muted. Pink is not my favorite color but I will use a mauve here and there. While there is nothing wrong with the color pink, it's a common color and my goal is to create interesting images that are dynamic, fresh and authentic through the use of texture, color, and vintage inspired props and items. :-) If you like pink, however, no worries! I always make sure it is showcased at some point in your collection. In case you are interested in some alternatives to pink, feel free to read away!

After floor props, this is where we do the bean bag posing. All of these are done with care and usually take about 45 minutes from start to finish. Baby does call the shots here, so if she is not comfortable in a pose, we move on and try something else. If you would like to read more about my favorite newborn poses, too, you'll find tons of great information on newborn safety, posing and handling.
