Building a studio wardrobe through a special offer

Today’s blog post is all about a maternity package offer I am sharing that is available until the end of July. In order to build a client wardrobe, I am offering maternity sessions for a discounted rate of $75 + tax for parents to be who bring a gown from the list below. If you follow my photography business you know that I never offer specials or discounts simply because I am booked up usually in advance, however, in this case I am creating a fun way to have an awesome selection of gowns for mothers to use during maternity or even newborn sessions. This is for maternity sessions only and may not be applied to another session type.


The pricing for this package is $75 + Texas Sales Tax. This includes a 10 minute studio session at my River Oaks Photography Studio as well as three full resolution and professionally edited digital files that are sent to you via instant digital download. All you have to do is bring a gown from a list I created below. All of the gowns are found on Amazon, most with Prime shipping, and are $40 or less. After your session the gown is left behind and added to my client closet.

If, however, you would like to wear more than one gown that is an option, too! The pricing does not change, though for each gown you receive 3 more digital files. For instance, if you brought two gowns than you receive 6 images total. These are full resolution and may be printed as large as you wish.

The session is due in full to secure your appointment. The scheduling calendar below will share how you’ll select your time.


This particular offer is available until the end of July and takes place on Tuesdays and Fridays between the hours of 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm. This is available until the end of July.

Who is included?

This session is for the mother only. If interested in adding siblings or significant others, please consider booking a full package as this particular offer is short, simple, and very fast paced.

I welcome all women who would like to participate. I believe in being inclusive and would love to see all sizes of bellies. Ideally, several different sizes means clients have options when visiting.

New Addition to the Pricing Guide: Studio Lifestyle Sessions for Families & Babies

Located in Uptown inside the 610 Loop, Sarah Borchgrevink’s New Studio Features an All White, Organic Lifestyle Room.

all white portrait studio in Houston

Good morning, friends! Today’s blog post is all about what’s new at my Houston Newborn Baby, Maternity, and Family Portrait Studio! As of June 3rd, I am officially moved in and excited to be working in a brand new, amazing space! If this is your first time seeing this post the new studio is located in Uptown off San Felipe. The 1,300 square-foot commercial space is everything I could ever want and caters to posed newborn photography, maternity and pregnancy portraits, and also family photography. As always, baby milestone sessions will still be offered.

Minimalist and simple lifestyle portraiture

As of June 2019 there is now the option to select a lifestyle family session when visiting with your newborn. Over the last year I have moved to a soft proofing method of clients selecting their images. This means an online proofing gallery is prepared featuring all the amazing images from our time together and then parents select their photos. Through this process, I have learned sometimes parents are gravitating towards the family, sibling, and parent images. They are leaving behind several setups such as naked bean bag posing, baby in a bucket and other floor props, and macro images. This has shown me that sometimes parents prefer a clean, natural, and minimalist approach by removing props, posing, and the accessories such as the hats and bonnets as well as all of the dainty tiebacks and headbands you’ll find in studio.

What is lifestyle newborn photography?

Lifestyle newborn photography is a laid back and more casual, natural approach to infant photos. For instance, we utilize the big white, cozy bed you’ll find in studio and also organic wraps and textiles, generally in the more neutral color schemes. There are minimal props and posing, though instead the images are soft, natural, and clean in which Baby is photographed just as they are. There is much less prep and setups, so this type of photography is designed for parents who do not like those perfectly squishy, posed images.

Both posed and lifestyle offer beautiful options and breathtaking results though now that I have a studio catering to both styles, I am happy to showcase both to be inclusive, versus exclusive, to what parents are seeking in Houston.

After all, the Greater Houston Area has millions of parents, all of which deserve to have the style of images that make their heart sing.

How Much are packages?

.All sessions are fully inclusive, meaning you select a package that includes a set number of digital files + a print release. These are one flat rate including time, talent, session design, editing of your images, and the preparation, as well as rendering of your full resolution digital gallery available for instant download. The images are yours to share with your special loved ones, but also print as many times as you would like. A reputable list of printing labs is provided so you're sure to have great options and ideas when displaying your session!

Clients may select from the following options that include full resolution digital files at one flat rate. Expect to spend about 60 minutes together for outdoor, natural light sessions.

SIMPLE | $600 + TAX

  • 15 non-watermarked, retouched, full resolution images available for instant download

CLASSIC | $750 + TAX

  • 25 non-watermarked retouched, full resolution images available for instant download

Option to Add Additional Digital Files to Your Package:

Your session comes with the number of digital files listed in your package. If you are interested in additional digital files, clients may purchase them once they have received the proofing gallery, which is available two weeks after your session takes place. All digital files at SBP are full resolution and may be printed as large as you wish. There is no obligation to purchase additional files, it is simply available if you’re interested in these.

· $40 per la carte file

· $150 for a grouping of 5

· $200 for a grouping of 8

· $350 for the entire gallery shown

When do these sessions take place?

The best time to photograph anything newborn related is the first 5-9 days. However, these are available to infants up to 7 weeks old.

When is the ideal time to book?

The ideal time to book a session, newborn or otherwise, with Sarah Borchgrevink Photography is generally in your second trimester, though some parents do not book until Baby is born because they may not know how early it is recommended to book. Sessions do take place 6 days per week, however, so last minutes bookings can sometimes be added to the calendar.

How to Book your appointment:

Booking your appointment with Sarah is very simple. Visit the booking page and add your due date to the calendar if you’re still pregnant. If Baby is already born, however, just select a date and time from the available options that fits your schedule.

You will either choose a “simple” studio family session or a “classic” studio family session.

Posed Newborn Session Information | What's Included When Booking with Sarah

Posed Newborn Photography Session Information

Welcome to the blog! This post is an informative piece sharing an overview of what’s included in an appointment when booking your little one’s first professional images! I am honored you’ve stopped by and hope you find these details helpful. Let’s get started.

Fully Inclusive Packages & Pricing

As a full time business owner, and Mom to four young children, being transparent and making things easy for parents is the heart of my business. At SBP, packages are one flat rate for the entire session. This includes session design, props, time and talent as well as allotted coverage, retouching, proofing, the preparation of your final gallery, and a stunning full resolution digital gallery of non-watermarked images you may print as many times as you like. A list of three free cloud storage recommendations and consumer grade labs are also given so you’re sure to know how to safely archive your photos. Feel free to also check out newborn package & pricing for Houston baby photography.

Two Week Turnaround Time for Proofing

  • There are no in person sales appointments, separate session fees, or minimum print orders to receive your digital files. Instead, you have a proofing gallery you view from the comfort of your home, couch, or even with family members. You’ll select your favorite images and have the option to add more images if you’d like though there is no obligation to do so. If you would like professional prints and heirloom products these are available through your gallery, though just like upgrading to additional digital files there is no obligation to do so. Soft proofing is my method of choice for previewing images and what many clients relay they prefer.

Everything is 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.

Please look through my Houston Newborn Photography Galleries to ensure we’re a good fit for one another! It is best you select someone who props and poses make your heart swoon. Your baby will only be brand new for a few weeks and you generally have one chance to have these images.

Classic, Timeless, and Natural Baby Photography

SBP is a traditional posed newborn photographer (Ranked Best Houston Newborn Photographers 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019) and is known for simple, natural, and vintage-inspired baby portraits with non-distracting props and themes to artfully preserve Baby as a brand new bundle of joy. Cozy wrapping, bean bag posing, and stunning macro images are the heart of the styling. If you are a fan of simplistic, stylish, and classic session designs than I’m the photographer or you. Parent, family, and sibling images are also available.


To book your appointment with Sarah, it is best to do so in advance. There are a limited amount of appointments per month to ensure every client has availability for their session. By signing your contract & fulfilling your contract, preferably in the second or third trimester, you have access and priority to the scheduling & booking calendar first.

To get this process started you’re welcome to visit the online booking page and follow the step by step instructions.

Once your baby is born, you will pick your session date & time as soon as possible. I like you to visit in the first 14 days if possible with 5-9 days being my absolute favorite sessions. Earlier is best. New babies are best photographed as they move less, sleep better, are more curly, have less baby acne, etc. Top newborn safety soothing techniques are used throughout the entire session.

Feel free to also ask questions or inquire via the contact tab, too, and we can schedule a phone, e-mail, or in person consultation. You’re also welcome to see a full gallery of any session type you’re interested in as it is important to ensure you like the style of photography I implement during my sessions.

Moreover, once your Baby is born you will receive a posed newborn prep guide telling you everything that will happen before, during, and after your session. This prep guide also covers what type of outfits to wear to your appointment should you choose to participate in your baby’s professional portraits.

Where is the studio located?

As of June 2019, Sarah is located in Uptown, inside the 610 loop, in order to be central to all parts of Houston. The address is 4550 Post Oak Place, Suite 203, Houston TX, 77027.

If you think we might be a good fit for one another I would love to chat with you!
