In Studio Baby Milestone Sessions

Available for Infants ages between 3-12 Months

Baby milestone sessions take place in the Houston Baby Portrait Studio 6 days per week between the hours of 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. These sessions are designed for babies who are between the ages of three and twelve months old. This is where we capture all things precious about your darling little one from sweet smiles, baby rolls, toothy grins, clapping their hands, rolling over, sitting up, taking steps, and even smashing a cake followed by an adorable yet timeless bubble bath! 

A great time to schedule your baby's appointment with Sarah is when they're rolling over or sitting up unassisted, but not yet crawling or walking. However, if your baby is already on the move, this is also a fantastic milestone to capture, too. The most common age parents bring little ones in is at 7 months and 11 months, but all babies hit milestones at different times, so 3-12 months is a general rule.

Full Styling + Outfits, Wardrobe , & props

Full wardrobe is provided as well as styling. This means you arrive to my portrait studio catering to all things newborn, infant, and baby photography. Your session will be designed in advance. Just bring Baby and their diaper bag essentials! See samples below of classic, vintage-inspired, and timeless baby attire that provides gorgeous images of your precious little one!

The client closet is curated from my favorite custom vendors who hand-creates luxury baby outfits so the light of your life is sure to look cute as a button! Handsome baby boys and darling little ladies are adorned in timeless clothing that also has special touches such as lace details, wooden buttons, gorgeous colors and hues, and the softest cotton for their sensitive skin!

Option to Smash Cake

If you would like to include a cake smash in your darling baby’s session this is an option. There is no additional investment to do so. Simply bring a simple white 9” cake with buttercream frosting from a bakery of your choice. If there is any specific decor you would like incorporated you may bring these along, however, I provide floor props, wardrobe, and bubbles as well as warm water for your little one. See further information on how to prepare for baby's Houston cake smash session & what's included.

The type of images you may expect

There are three tiers of pricing from which you may consider: sweet, pure, and darling baby packages. All sessions include full styling such as wardrobe, which encompasses classic attire, never detracting from your sweet baby. Accessories such as headbands and bonnets are also included. Floor props that are inspired by all things vintage such as buckets, pails, crates, bowls, etc., are quintessential to precious baby portraits in which your little one's milestones are perfectly preserved.

Rolls for days like a Shar-pei

When photographing a chubby little cherub, there is nothing more precious than baby rolls! The rustic wooden wall is the perfect backdrop to showcase the adorable nature of a dapper little one! Their darling smiles, ten little toes, and sparkling eyes are an absolute dream to document!

Showing off those muscles

An array of vintage-inspired floor props are available for your session! These reflect the timeless and classic vibe at Sarah Borchgrevink Photography. There are distressed buckets, antique bowls, galvanized trenches, rustic crates, and more! Texture is also an important element to creating baby works of art! Wraps, layers, knits, and the real wood walls I have will stand the test of time. 30 years from now when you pass the images down to your child, the images will not be dated or filled with distractions detracting from the precious nature and milestones your little one is encompassing.

Splish-splash bubble bath

The farmhouse washtub is a favorite prop in my studio! We fill the tub with warm, soapy water and then let Baby be who they are; some splash, some clap, some kiddos play peekaboo! The splash sessions are always full of breathtaking expressions and capture the spirit of little one!
