Award-winning portrait artist located inside the 610 loop in River Oaks/Uptown.
Sarah is ranked Best Houston Newborn Photographers 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. Rustic, dreamy, & timeless portraits for new babies and family.
Howdy! I’m Sarah! Specializing in the custom of the art of posed newborn photography, my sessions are timeless, natural, and rustic. The final product is a dreamy gallery that stands the test of time. It's truly an honor to document your little one! Appointments take place in the Houston Newborn Studio centrally located in Uptown. The preferred age is the first 14 days of life, however, appointments are available up to 60 days for specific packages. If your baby has spent time in the NICU, scheduling is even more flexible and convenient up to 13 weeks.
Vintage pieces, rustic props, and organic textiles are the heart of my timeless styling. All accessories are provided from wraps, headbands, caps, bonnets, buckets, bowls, crates, baskets, etc. A custom newborn session is a perfect way to preserve this incredibly special milestone in your life authentically. Parent, family, and sibling images are also available.
Tiny eyelashes, big yawns and stretches, squishy rolls, serene sleeping faces, and their curly, brand new nature are everything good and beautiful about babies. Of all the childhood photos, Baby's first images will evoke a sense of tender, unconditional love. You spent months dreaming of their face and imagining holding little one in your arms, the weight of them against your chest, their scent enveloping your senses.
My heart belongs to infant photography, and I cannot express the joy I feel in working with my petite, precious clients! I look forward to creating an exceptional set of images for you. Congratulations on your sweet cherub! All my joy and warmth to you.
Inspired by ETHEREAL light, texture, & dreamy textiles
Tiny details of Baby's unique features, called macro images, set your gallery apart. Included in all sessions, these encompass characteristics of Baby such as their lips, profile, toes, hands, and more. Moreover, cozy, unique wrapping as well as adorable bean bag posing are cornerstones to my newborn portraiture. Top safety techniques are always implemented. Vintage-inspired styling along with texture are foundations to creating breathtaking works of Baby art.

Sibling, family, and parent images in the all-white room
The floor to ceiling, dreamy natural light is perfectly classic without distractions. Family photos include diverse combinations such as Mom with Baby, Dad with Baby, Sibling with Baby, as well as the entire family. Mom with the children is especially important as so often Mothers forget to be present in photos. Grandparents are available as an add on.
Newborn Safety is of the utmost importance | VACCINATED & insured
Aside from being the mommy to four young children, I have taken multiple newborn safety workshops in addition to professional mentoring. These courses train photographers on how to safely and beautifully pose precious babies. Workshop topics also cover editing, lighting, soothing, flow, and strategies and creative methods to provide breathtaking setups and styling. A reputable baby photographer has invested thousands of hours into honing their craft. Moreover, to provide a further network of newborn safety, the studio is fully vaccinated and runs an entirely legal, tax-paying insured business.
Stunning photography studio for luxury experience
The studio and office feature a 1,300 square foot commercial space showcasing a mothers room, lobby and children's playroom, all-white and organic lifestyle space, posed infant room with custom wooden backdrops, and a fully-stocked baby prop room filled with handmade and custom items. The studio is located at 610 & San Felipe, inside the loop.
all props & styling are provided
Everything for your sweet cherub is provided. This includes hundreds and hundreds of props such as gorgeous bonnets, headbands, dainty outfits, backdrops, buckets, bowls, baskets, wraps, and more! Simply bring your little one’s diaper bag and leave the rest to me. A styling questionnaire ensures your favorite colors make an appearance, though everything will be cohesive and match the vintage-inspired, dreamy, rustic, and timeless brand of Sarah Borchgrevink Photography. Your gallery will stand the test of time and be amazing even 30 years from now.
How parents choose & receive their digital files
14 days, or less, after your appointment, parents receive a password-protected online gallery showcasing all the great images from our time together! From the comfort of your home, you select the images included in your package.
Retouching is applied to your chosen images, such as skin smoothing, eye sharpening, teeth whitening, and more! Within three business days, the final edits are completed to ensure your pictures are naturally polished. The gallery is yours to download, share, and treasure forever. You may also send the link to family, friends, or loved ones who would like to enjoy the portraits, too!
The full-resolution digital gallery may be printed as large as you want, as many times as you wish, and offers modern flexibility to new parents.
How to reserve your due date in advance:
To provide a streamlined experience, all appointments are scheduled via the online booking page.
Adding your due date to the calendar in advance is helpful as it let’s me know how many babies to expect. Your due date acts as a placeholder. Once Baby is born, you select a date and time to visit for your session. You’ll have many options as sessions take place 7 days per week between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., M-F, and 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sundays.
Click to add your due date to the calendar. A $100 deposit and portraiture agreement secure the placeholder. Your deposit is applied to the overall balance of whichever package you choose.
If Your Baby is already born:
If Baby is already born, go ahead and schedule your newborn session now from the available options. You are less likely to have your preferred day and time, though sessions take place 7 days per week.
The scheduling page will share how you sign your portraiture contract & pay your $100 deposit, which is applied to the overall balance of the package type you select. Your final balance is due the day of your newborn session.
Scheduling is flexible for NICU babies and there are session options for older newborns. Always know you may contact me and I will do my absolute best to accommodate you. Parents sometimes have unique circumstances and I welcome all questions.
