Chic, Delicate, & Classic | Inspired by Four Elegant Color Ideas

4 Gorgeous Colors to Create Girly, Chic, and Dainty Newborn Photos | Inspired by a Love of Muted Tones

Newborn Styling 101: Be Timeless

When designing a custom newborn session, there are three aspects to my brand that are essential in creating some of the Best Houston Newborn Photography: Classic, Timeless, and Vintage-Inspired. My motto has always been, "Why be trendy, when you can be timeless?" This in mind, I offer a great styling questionnaire to all of my expecting parents. This is where we talk about your nursery colors, likes, dislikes, must have poses, and even things such as sentimental items from home so you may incorporate a personal item into your session if you wish.

This in mind, when Lily's mother, Talitha, shared her color preferences with me, she mentioned she loves nude colors. I found inspiration for their girly, chic, and feminine newborn session in the most interesting of ways: through an eyeshadow palette! I headed to my master bath and studied some of my favorite groupings.

Tan, Beige, Cream, and Mauve | Styling Houston Newborn Photos

These four colors, tan, beige, cream, and mauve, are absolutely breathtaking and stunning, making for an amazingly gorgeous newborn girl portrait session!

These four colors, listed above, make for an elegant color scheme for the most petite of clients: a precious newborn baby girl! When it comes to setting up for a session, everything is provided by me; all the dainty tiebacks, wraps, headbands, bowls, buckets, textiles, etc., it's all available in my client closet. The cream, for instance, looks spectacular against Lily's skin tone; her parents brought a pearl bracelet to add a sweet southern touch to the session, and I cannot stop swooning over her gallery! How lucky am I to photograph the most beautiful babies in all of Houston, Texas?

During my time with Lily, we focused on the blush pink and rosy tones, as well as mauve and even a vanilla cream! These colors are timeless, classic, and result in a fantastic gallery. During potato sack pose, for instance, I paired the fluffy cream flokati rug with an adorable rose headband to emphasize all things feminine and chic about a brand new little girl. From the moment of being earthside, Lily is super stylish!

In my Houston Baby Portrait Studio, you'll find (3) custom wood walls that make for stunning portraits! A dark wooden wall is a great option for my sessions because the texture is lovely with the vintage-inspired floor props I keep on hand. The cream, tan, and lace are all super girly while maintaining the vintage-inspired aspect of my newborn brand.

Finally, a cream distressed farmhouse bucket is a great way to encompass the nude color scheme for an elegant newborn girl photography session! This soft blush pink wrap is the perfect accent to little one's skintone; paired with a mauve pillow and rosy pink head piece accesorry, she is perfectly pink in all things nude!

Grayson’s Perfectly Wrapped Session with Brown Bear Baby Hat

Specializing in the best Houston newborn photography, Sarah Borchgrevink Photography's studio is filled with adorable props to adorn your sweet baby. Check out Grayson's cozy baby boy session and see the number one request from parents: baby bear hats!

Grayson at 6 Days New | Welcome to the world

Handsome Grayson visited my Houston newborn studio when he was 6 days fresh and new! This is the ideal time for a baby's first portraiture session in terms of professional photography preferences. From the moment he arrived, he slept peacefully and truly was a joy to photograph! Upon arrival, his session was set up and ready to go to ensure his parents had a seamless, smooth experience.

As a mommy to 4 kiddos, I know leaving the house for the first time is a little daunting, so I make sure your time in the studio is well spent. This is achieved by utilizing a styling questionnaire for your little one. The posed newborn design begins with your preferences; you also have the opportunity to request specific props or setups you've seen via my blog or newborn galleries. In this case, for example, his parents asked for the adorable brown bear newborn hat prop that I have on hand. I also have one in cream, too, for neutral lovers!

The brown bear hat is especially cute! It's made with the softest materials and even has a precious matching teddy bear, too! I pride myself on being the Best Houston Newborn Photographer because I take the time to listen to your vision and add my own twist to create both breathtaking and stunning newborn images.

After the adorable baby bear + matching stuffed animal set took place, we focused on darling yet cozy wrapping, as his parents requested a fully wrapped session. These sessions are absolutely awesome because they're a little more modest yet also modern. At the same time, the wrapping is done in a timeless, classic manner and styled with my vintage props so they fit the brand.

Here are some of my favorite images from my time with Grayson. He was the sweetest little guy in the studio that week and I am honored to have captured these photos for his parents. If you're currently pregnant and are considering professional baby portraits of your cherub, keep on scrolling to see how to get in touch.

Wishing you a wonderful upcoming week!

Why I Chose To Photograph My Own Son’s Session | Jack Alexander

Sarah Borchgrevink Photography, located in Northwest Harris County, is a full time newborn portrait artist serving Houston and surrounding areas. See more fun details about the latest squish, Jack Alexander, and why Sarah chose to do his posed newborn photos.

Introducing Jack Alexander  | The Chief to the Tiny Tribe of Wild Women

Good afternoon, friends! I am really excited about this particular blog post because it's all about introducing the latest member of the Borchgrevink family, Jack! This post also shares why I chose to photograph his posed newborn portraits myself.

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may remember we announced this pregnancy in July when I was around 20 weeks pregnant. We purposely waited to find out the gender before telling everyone since we already have three little girls. They’re named Lucy, Emma and Amelia, however, we lovingly refer to them as the Tiny Tribe of Wild Women.

It turns out baby number 4 is a BOY! This was a really fun surprise and while all babies are wonderful and ultimately, the goal is a healthy bundle of joy, we truly are excited about adding a chief to the little tribe because parenting a boy is a new experience.

His due date was originally 12/15, which was super fun since my birthday is 12/14 and Amelia’s is 12/9, but he decided he wanted to cook longer and hung out for over a week before making his grand entrance!

Jack Alexander Borchgrevink was born at Cy Fair Hospital on December 23rd, 2017. His official birth time was 1:57 PM. Weighing 8 pounds, 4 ounces he is the perfect little man; he was also 20 inches long and his head was 14 and ½ inch, his chest 13 and ¼ inch. All in all, things went very smoothly! While you're here: check out what I recommend for packing a hospital back + must haves for delivering at Cy-Fair Medical Center. It's my fourth baby here, after all, ha! 

When it came to deciding on professional newborn portraits, I did book a fantastic in home lifestyle newborn photographer. After all, I am very excited about adding a new baby to our family and the lifestyle session will have a lot of family photos. I want to be in the images and I am looking forward to having truly lovely sibling shots, too. 

Nevertheless, for the posed portion it felt really personal. Jack is my last baby and this is my gift to him; to photograph him in his most precious state. There is a plethora of amazing newborn studios in Houston Texas, so this decision is not based on lack of talent by any means. The options are endless and I'm thrilled to be friends with many newborn artists who truly shine. While I was pregnant with Baby Boy Jack, I planned his session from the moment I saw the positive (+) sign, ha! I did not know his gender then, but I knew I could not wait to meet baby.

Being a mommy myself truly helps me identify with the exciting emotions surrounding the joy of bringing home a new baby. Whether it's your first or last baby, you spend months dreaming of their face, talking about names, decorating the nursery, preparing your home for this precious little life, and your heart is exploding because you already love him or her so much. It's unconditional love. Hearing the heartbeat for the first time is the most beautiful sound to a mothers ears; seeing their profile on the ultrasound makes you so happy, and sharing that experience with your spouse or partner leads you to feel closer to them. 

This in mind, I had a whole session set up for Jack before he even arrived. I made lists and wrote out a session plan. I broke his session up into about 4 days so I was able to concentrate on different aspects without feeling rushed. 

Day 1: Cozy and unique wrapping such as tootsie, potato, and womb. Check out my three favorite ways to wrap newborn babies, too!

Day 2: Macro Images (up close details like lips, toes, his chin, baby magic, ahhh!)

Day 3: Floor props like bucket, bowl, crate, and a wooden trench.

Day 4: Flokati rugs and naked bean bag posing 

Working with Jack was my love letter to him: one day, when he is married or graduates college, I will have timeless and gorgeous newborn portraits of him, the most precious and tender time in which he entered the world. I spent about 6 hours on these images, but they'll last for a lifetime and I will always have these images in an album to look back on and cherish. Newborn photography is *absolutely* an investment, however, you're commissioning an artist to preserve this incredibly special time for you - it is fleeting and one you can never capture again so by booking someone who specializes in posed newborn portraits you're selecting someone who will treat your baby's session with the utmost care, respect and love. 

Without further delay, present Jack Alexander Borchgrevink + my favorite images of him. If you check back in a few weeks I'll be blogging some wall art options and how we will be displaying these images in our home.

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday. All my joy to you friends!
