Three New Background in Studio for Parent, Sibling, and Family Setups

Additional options in Sarah’s Houston Newborn Baby Studio | Grey, Mocha, & White

Good morning, friends! Each week I blog a new topic, one of which generally stems from either business or recent work; today’s post is all about the new updates I’ve made! While I will forever be obsessed with the rustic, custom wood wall that’s 8’x10’, an anniversary gift from my husband, as well as the back-lit ethereal lighting I offer, these options give you more variety and choices for your clothing.

Now you’ll find gorgeous, dreamy seamless paper in the following colors:

  • Grey

  • Mocha

  • Off White

One reason I added three new colors to my timeless & rustic brand is to encompass more skin tones. Newborn photography should be inclusive, not exclusive. I reside in Houston which is an absolute melting pot of cultures and races. Forbes mentions Houston is a city many people are transferring to. This in mind, more options means more flattering skin tones, which results in the perfect accompaniment to all skin types and races.

I love the warmth of mocha seamless paper; this is a wonderful backdrop for new parents as the contrast looks fantastic and makes for creamy skin, sparkling eyes, and is not detracting from the perfect bundle of joy, your precious new arrival!

If you like the look of mocha, I recommend wearing black, white, or perhaps richer tones like navy, burgundy, or even perhaps ivory.

Ah, classic and neutral grey makes my heart sing! Grey is one of those colors that can be cooler or warmer in temperature; I prefer the thunder grey savage brand, which I light with studio lighting.

Grey paper looks stunning with any neutral color palette or even softer tones such as ivory, cream, blush, mauve, white, grey, or even black. This is a very forgiving color and also looks fantastic in most homes since grey is in fashion.

Off White

Off white paper is very versatile because you can wear any color with this tone, however, most of the time I do recommend neutral outfits and wardrobe during our consultation so you’re sure to have images that stand the test of time. 30 years from now, when you display these images at your child’s wedding, or perhaps showcase them at a college graduation, they will never feel dated. Preserving your baby’s newborn stage is of the utmost importance to me; doing so authentically makes my day! For the off white paper, I like to see colors such as thistle, sand, taupe, grey, ivory, cream, white, however, you could also dress in blues, greens, or another color, such as blush, pink, mauve, too!

Don’t forget about the back-lit, all white classic option

Backlit makes for beautifully posed newborn, family, or sibling images that will forever evoke a sense of peace and serenity; I include these in all of my newborn sessions, so if these make you heart burst than we are a great fit for one another!

The all white, ethereal tones are classic, timeless, and breathtaking, the perfect way to showcase you new addition as you welcome them into your family.
