“Having Sarah take newborn pictures of our newborn was a TERRIFIC decision!
I have used other newborn and family photographers in the past and Sarah is the most prepared, patient, and fluid of all of them. She has a vision of the shots she wants to take and the studio is set up and ready to go prior to your session. The excitement and passion Sarah has for photographing newborns is unmatched! She looooves babies and looooves what she does. Her exuberance and professionalism made the session go so quickly and smoothly. The final products are AMAZING! I worked for Disney and they always taught us, “Communication is key”. Sarah GETS IT! She was by far the best at communicating and touching base before and after our session. “ - Emily



“fI am so glad that we found Sarah. She was amazing. Her work is wonderful at an amazing price. Sarah is extremely professional and prompt. But more importantly she cares about the families she portraits. We couldn't have been happier. “ - Chris & Kristin

“Had an amazing experience with Sarah from the beginning. Sarah was very professional in all of her communications and very fast to respond to any questions we had. When it came to the week of our shoot, the weather was looking a little shaky and Sarah kept us very up to date on the plan should weather cause any issues. The night before we decided due to the rain that we would reschedule to the following weekend. When we showed up for our shoot Sarah was prepared with props and very good at giving direction. We are very happy with our photos and already have our 2nd shoot booked!!! “ - Brandon & Erin

“Sarah is an amazing photographer. We have used her for all our daughter's big events in her short 1 year life (maternity, newborn, family, photos and 1 year photos). Sarah has always been such a pleasure to work with, always answers her phone and makes me feel like I am talking to an old friend. The picture quality is AMAZING! We have the best photos of our little girl. All the photos are timeless works of art. I still marvel at all the photos we received. I recommend Sarah to all my friends and will continue to use her every year to capture the love and unique characters of our little family. if you are looking for a friendly, talented, patient, responsive photographer, look no further you have found her! “ - Ana & Scott


 newborn photos with mom and dad

“Let me start of by saying that Sarah was absolutely AMAZING! She was so patient, calm, and took all the time she needed. Our baby was in the NICU so her pictures were done at 14 days old instead of the usual 5-9 days, & she did every thing she could to get me a froggie pose picture since it was one of my request. All the pictures came out so perfect, our family loved them, we received so many compliments from family & friends. My husband and I have been recommending to her to everyone! It was so worth the investment. “ - Eunice

“Sarah takes our family pictures every year. She takes beautiful photos and offers packages for a reasonable price that include a variety of poses. We have a two year old son and he is pretty wild, and she was still able to get a number of great shots for us to choose from. The whole process with Sarah is very easy and she outlines all the steps for you from picking a location, clothing, choosing from proofs, lab selection for printing, and more. I really can't say enough good things about her as she is truly talented and professional. We will continue to use her for our photos and I will recommend her to everyone! “ - Rita & HL

For All the Things My Hands Have Held the Best By Far Is You

See the cutest newborn, family, parent, and sibling images from last week!

Newborn Family Photography in Houston Texas

Of all the photos you’ll ever have taken of your new arrival, the family, parent, or sibling images will resonate timelessly throughout baby’s life. These images reflect the love and bond between a brand new baby and their parents. This is when little one has just began to be part of this world and they truly fit in the palm of your hand. Never will they be this small; smell this way, or touch your heart as sweetly. As one of Houston’s Top Newborn Photographers, I delight in offering packages that reflecting classic and stunning studio portraiture work. Family, parent, and sibling setups are wonderful to document. Here’s who visited last week!

Baby Boy Quinn

Congratulations to Jessica and Matt! Quinn is such a handsome little fella; weighing 6 pounds, 6 ounces he is truly a bundle of joy. He is their first baby and was an absolute joy to photograph as his session reflected a Woodlands Creatures Theme with furry, sweet animal friends. Mom and Dad booked the popular ‘petite’ newborn package, which is ideal for first time parents. This newborn family pose is one of my favorites as hands are on baby and show how sweet, little, and precious they are. Congrats to the L Family! All my joy to you on this new adventure with your beautiful son!

Sweet Sisters | Amal & Mia

The wrapped newborn mini with family add on (an additional $150) is the perfect session for babies who have missed the traditional 14 days or less for scheduling. Amal visited my Houston Baby Portrait Studio at a little over 3 weeks old. Mia, three years old, is the best big sister! Sibling and newborn photography can sometimes be a little spirited, but Mia was a rock star and one of the best big sisters I’ve ever had in studio! For their sibling portion we did two different set ups: one of Amal holding Mia on a white, fluffy flokati rug and another where Mia was in the bucket and she gently kisses and hugs sister.

As you can see, Amal is snugly and posed perfectly in one of the many buckets you’ll find in my studio! Her head full of gorgeous dark hair is adorned with a precious headband. Sibling images will make their mother’s heart soar! What a sweet pair of little girls. I am honored to have worked with them.

The Garcia Family

The Garcia family visited with their brand new little girl, who weighs 9 pounds, such a squish! They chose the full newborn session, which is an amazing option for parents seeking a large variety of images for our time together. Your baby is only small for a few short weeks so sometimes parents will book the largest package to ensure they have as many photos as they could possibly need.

Working with new parents and their earth side babies is an absolute dream! When posing Mom and newborn baby, or dad and their little one, we we use two different backdrops: one is the custom wood wall that is a complete show stopper! The other is the classic white background in my studio featuring gorgeous light that is effortlessly beautiful. Both make for an incredible gallery!

The Wolf Family | Returning Clients

About two years ago I had the honor of visiting their beautiful home for an in home lifestyle newborn session; at the time I was still offering family sessions in my clients’ homes. However, I have since moved to where I specialize in posed newborn photography within a studio setting; this in mind, the Wolf family came to me this time for their images of their second little one, Abby! Big Brother Benjamin is even more precious than the last time I saw him! He was all smiles and full of pride as we photographed the entire family with little sister. Many thanks to the Wolf’s for choosing me a second time. I loved working with you again!

Father and Newborn Son | Favorite Angle

Colt is the a miracle baby (see more of their post here with Love Story of Ashley and Justin). During our full newborn session, Baby Boy is posed in many different setups such as Dad and Baby. I love this angle because it shows all of Baby’s beautiful features as well as the chest of Dad protecting his little one. Colt is also a baby plan client so I worked with Ashley & Justin on their maternity session, newborn session, too, and will also be seeing them for their 6 month sitter and 12 month cake smash and splash session. Thank you to the R family for choosing me!

Oh Baby! Age Matters | Now Booking into April 2019 Spring Due Dates

Houston Infant Photographer, Sarah Borchgrevink, shares details on when to book your posed newborn session + shares availability about the 2019 calendar!

 best age to get professional baby photos

Hi, friends! Greetings! Today is an exciting post because I am excited to share I am now taking Spring 2019 due dates for my most petite, precious clients. Earthside cherubs are an absolute dream to photograph! Capturing this incredibly sweet time as you welcome your new baby into this world makes my heart soar. However, I do receive many inquiries from parents about when they should book their newborn session; furthermore, I sometimes have to decline sessions because the calendar is either full when parents contact me once Baby is born, or their baby has already reached the age limit for newborn photography.

When to take baby pictures?

 2 week old newborn pictures

The best time to have a professional newborn session of your recent arrival is when they're 5-9 days fresh and new. This is when Baby is most curly, sleepy, and is able to be molded into those precious, darling photos of squishy naked posing. While this may seem very early, to capture the type of images you see in my posed baby photography portfolio, earlier is best. Age does matter. They're able to sleep through many setups and you're given a great prep guide to ensure you have a successful session at my Houston Newborn Photography Studio.

Booking Early Is Best | Here's Why

 spring newborn photography

Booking your newborn session before baby arrives is best! You see, if you contact your preferred photographer when Baby is already born, there is most probably already sessions scheduled on the days your little one will be 5-9 days old. As one of the Best Professional Newborn Photographers in Houston (voted 2016, 2017, 2018 - hopefully 2019, too, ha!) I photograph sessions almost daily. Securing your due date on the calendar early makes booking easier for you, and once your baby arrives, you simply let me know, I send you 4 dates, and then design a gorgeous session for you based on your color preferences. 

Due Dates act as a placeholder

 best time to schedule a newborn photography session

At Sarah Borchgrevink Photography, there are around 20-24 newborn appointments available per month. Newborn sessions take place 7 days/week between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM, in the studio, located near Barker Cypress/290 in NW Houston. Now! 24 appointments sound like a lot of options, but these fill up very fast. I take 24 due dates/month because each client is given 4 appointments to select from once their baby is born. Your due date acts as a placeholder so I do not book too many newborns. This is in addition to my Baby Milestone Photography sessions, outdoor maternity or family photography, too, so 24 is the max number the studio can allow for.

 book newborn session before baby arrives
  • Your due date is placed on the calendar; we expect Baby to make their grand entrance around two weeks before or even after your estimated arrival for Baby.
  • Whether Baby is early, late, or right on time, you're guaranteed 4 dates from which you may select. Sessions typically take place at 5-9 days new, though the wrapped newborn mini session is available up to 30 days old (though is still best in the first 14 days of life).
  • Booking early ensures there is plenty of space for your baby.
  • The second trimester is ideal for securing your appointment on the calendar, though sometimes last-minute appointments do open up, such as when a newborn comes early, so that means another appointment is available now.

Now Booking Spring 2019 Due Dates 

The calendar for posed baby and family photography sessions is now open into Spring 2019. Mothers who are due in March and April, for instance, are now contacting me to book their sessions. To get the booking process started, simply visit the contact page and submit an inquiry; feel free to share any details about your pregnancy or due date for your little one.

Newborn Session Details 

Congratulations on your little one, by the way! This is super exciting and I am thrilled for you! I have four little ones myself (Emma, Lucy, Amelia, and Jack) and because I am a mom + full time business owner, I have a special insight into how precious and fleeting the newborn time is. Booking your newborn session with me guarantees an amazing experience; not only do I have a fantastic studio stocked with all the props you could ever need, I am fully vaccinated, insured, and run a legal business, so you can be sure to know your baby's safety and the final product is of the utmost importance to me. Everything is provided for the session, except the baby, of course, ha!

Newborn Photography Houston Pricing

A fully transparent and easy to understand pricing guide is readily available to you. There are 4 packages to consider: (1) wrapped newborn mini session, (2) bean bag mini, (3) petite, and (4) full. Each package features different options to cater to a variety of budgets. Part of offering an amazing experience for parents is making things as easy as possible for them: that begins with transparent pricing reflecting top quality newborn images.

Newborn packages begin at $400 + tax. 

  • To secure an appointment, there is a $100 non-refundable retainer that is applied to your overall balance of whichever package you select. 
  • A signed portraiture agreement is also included in the booking process. You may sign this online and also fulfill your invoice online. The following are accepted: all credit cards, debit cards, and personal checks.
  • Final invoices are due the day before your actual session takes place. Like your retainer and contract, you may do so online. 
  • Newborn sessions take place between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM in my studio. I do not offer in-home sessions at this time as the look of my newborn photography cannot be replicated in a home environment, such as a nursery. Earlier is better though: newborn sessions are best in the morning. 
  • Everything is provided for styling
  • Two weeks after your appointment, you recieve your gallery of images that are included in your package. There are no hidden fees, minimum print orders, or in person sales appointments. Parents have the flexiblity, ease, and comfort to select images in their own time, in their own home.
