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.

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.
