For the love of pure and timeless baby photography

  • Please note the ‘bean bag newborn session’ is a small package designed for parents who would like a small set of photos and setups. If you’re looking for a session with several customized looks, a ‘full’ or ‘petite’ newborn session is a great option.

Sarah Borchgrevink Photography also offers a full, petite, and wrapped newborn package to consider.

Showcasing squishy, curly, and adorable bean bag posing

What sets the bean bag package apart?

Posed Newborn Photography Packages

The 'bean bag' newborn package at Sarah Borchgrevink Photography is designed for parents who adore the oh-so-squishy and sweet posing of their recently arrived cherub.

  • Baby is naked for the entire session to show all the beauty of their features and showcased with minimal props.

  • One backdrop color of your choice is included along with accessories such as headbands, bonnets, and organic layers that add texture and interest to the images.

  • There are 5 primary poses in the world of custom newborn photography. If you are looking for a super cohesive look and a smaller, streamlined package, consider booking a bean bag option.

Best for younger newborns

The best time to visit the studio for a bean bag newborn session is when Baby is 5-9 days old.

  • The older Baby is, the less curly they are and the more alert they become. After about 10 days old, new babies do not enjoy being naked or handled.

First Sample Gallery | Boy Baby Styling

This breathtaking little boy visited when he was just 7 days old. A fir green backdrop and neutral accessories, such as a textured bonnet, precious sleepy cap, darling layers to add contract, and vintage-inspired bear bonnet and matching stuffed animal make for a precious session encompassing all things new, curly, and timeless about a newly earthside baby.

Styling and Posing You May Expect:

A backdrop color of your choice is provided along with accessories to style baby, such as handcrafted headbands, seen below. In this particular session, this darling baby girl visited the studio at 7 days new. Her parents requested neutrals such as a soft peach with also accents of cream and ivory. The poses seen below are 'froggy', in which baby appears to be holding up their head, timber, cradle, bum up, also known as the tooshie pose, womb, which is sometimes also called taco, followed by side sleeper, and then even a macro image of baby's profile. 

Third Sample Gallery | girl Bean Bag session

This sweet cherub baby girl visited the studio when she was just over 6 days fresh. She weighs 6 pounds and has the most darling head full of gorgeous brown hair! She slept beautifully for me. Her parents asked for a very girly and feminine session featuring lilac, lavender, and muted purple colors to compliment her skin tone. For this session, she is posed in taco, back to sleep, bum up, froggy, and side sleeper. There are precious macro images, too, of her face, in which you may see the adorable features like her button nose, lips, eyelashes, and chubby little cheeks!

Family, sibling, or parent images as an add on
