Studio features:

Inside the studio you will find the perfect floor plan for amazing baby photography and a wonderful experience for new parents. The studio features the following:

  • A lobby and reception area so parents have a comfortable place to wait. There are also snacks, of course, and a coffee bar. Inside this lobby area you’ll also find a playroom for young children to hang out in whilst their sibling is being photographed.

  • The mothers lounge is designed for the comfort of new mothers. This is a nursing, feeding, or resting room so you may feed your baby, in comfort and peace, before and after your session. I do have four young children myself and recognize that feeding Baby is a huge part of your day. This mothers room will allow you to relax and to leave your session so Baby has a full tummy for the car ride home.

  • The prop room has anything you could ever want for accessories! Inside my prop room, which is labeled storage, you will find a huge array of props, perfectly organized. Here is where I will keep my hundreds of props such as buckets, bowls, baskets, wooden bowls, newborn antique beds, hats, bonnets, headbands, wraps, textiles, backdrops, and more!

  • The all white lifestyle room for family, child, or maternity sessions. This room is going to feature a big white bed, white couch, and have beautiful flooring, crown molding, and floor to ceiling light to make for the dreamiest of sessions. This can be used for little sitter sessions, baby milestones, and even family photos during your newborn session. This room will focus on capturing families naturally and with connections.

  • The posed newborn room featuring backdrops, three custom wood walls, and comfortable seating for you during your time in studio. This room is about 500 square feet, within itself, and will have the same look at my current studio. This means I’ll be keeping the three rustic wood walls my husband, Kevin, designed for me as well as all of the seamless paper backdrops. Everything will be set up in advance for your session for a seamless experience.

Amenities:

The building has monitored security, ample surface parking plus controlled access to garage covered parking, as well as a deli downstairs.

Online Booking Available

A new feature that has recently been implemented is online booking for your sessions. This is how you seamlessly sign your contract, pay your deposit, and then select your session date & time from a calendar. This is designed for busy parents who like simplicity.

Breathtaking Backlit Photography for Timeless, Airy, and Dreamy Portraits

Ethereal Backlighting for Stunning Newborn and Family Sessions

Houston newborn photo studio

In my Houston Newborn, Baby, and Infant Portrait Studio you’ll find amazing lighting that makes for stunning images! One of my favorite ways to light my subjects is called “backlighting” which is simply a controlled technique in which a light is placed behind or at the proper angles to produce a separation between the subject and the background. The end result is heavenly and absolutely beautiful. These take place during each session and parents always select these during their proofing.

When booking your preferred portrait artist it is always a great idea to peruse their portfolio and see if the type of work they produce makes your heart sing. Each photographer has their own style and branding behind the images; for instance, at SBP, the heart of the styling, shooting, and editing is dreamy, rustic, and timeless. 30 years from now the images will not look dated and instead the images are all about the subject, interactions, and embracing the spirit of this momentous time in your life.

Preserving Family Bonds | Examples of Backlit

When you visit for your baby’s first professional photo shoot, we’ll cycle through several setups such as family, sibling, parents, dad with newborn, and mommy with the new baby, too! You may be interested in reading more about the family portion posing, too!

You’ll be told what to wear to the session and even given a styling questionnaire to ensure your favorite colors make their way into our session. When photographing a new family from the backlit perspective, I love to see you in solid colors; neutrals are the most timeless and fantastic colors for this part of your session.

When using the all white, bright light the focus is interacting with one another. I may have Dad kiss Baby, Mom smile down at Baby, or perhaps have parents look into one another’s eyes and think about how much they love the new addition.

We also focus on family bonds and incorporating the older sibling, too, if you have another little one. As a mama to four young kiddos, I can attest you’ll treasure this portion of your gallery!

We’ll also take time to photograph each parent with your earthside cherub, too, and the white light will frame beautifully in any home decor.

“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!

“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
