Preparing for Little One’s Session with Sarah Borchgrevink Photography
Congrats on your sweet cherub hitting these absolutely adorable baby milestones such as tummy time, sitting up unassisted, walking, clapping, and truly showing off that infectious personality that makes your mama heart sing! Thank you for selecting SBP to photograph this momentous time in your life! Timeless, classic, and rustic inspired baby photography is my jam and what I am known for as one of Houston’s highest rated photographers. I promise you’re in good hands and I’m so excited to work together!
What You Can Expect:
When booking a session with Sarah you can expect a customer service driven experience. Details such as upfront and transparent pricing for digital galleries, consultations, option to tour the studio, full gallery samples, and staying on top of client communication and having a clear path of steps to follow are just a few examples of our time together.
You may also expect the following:
Full Styling such as outfits, wardrobe, and accessories. This includes, but is not limited to luxury and handmade baby clothing that reflects all things classic and timeless. Part of investing in a customized photography session is having a great set of props provided by me; don’t stress about bringing anything but diaper bag essentials. :-)
Accessories such as headbands, floral crowns and dainty pieces to adorn your little angel.
Endless supply of rustic, vintage-inspired, and antique floor props to accent the session
The Details for Baby Studio Portraiture Appointments
Consider booking your session in advance, if possible, as the calendar often fills quickly, particularly if you’re interested in a Saturday session date.
Milestone sessions are available 6 days per week.
Sessions are typically best early in the morning, as Little One is most refreshed then, or right after their nap time.
All outfits and styling are provided for your baby, though you are welcome to bring a special item from home, should you feel inclined.
My branding is timeless, classic, vintage-inspired, and rustic. I do not offer themes such as Minnie Mouse, Paw Patrol, or things of the like as removing distractions and focusing on your little one’s beauty is the heart of my portrait style. In Houston there are thousands of amazing photographers so it is always best to make sure you’re a good fit for the photographer you choose. The Houston Baby and Infant Milestone Portfolio is a reflection of what I offer.
The Morning of Your Session with Sarah:
Once Baby is awake for the day, feed baby a snack before you drive to my studio. A well-fed baby is a happy photography subject. I know when I’m hungry I don’t feel like being photographed, ha!
Please dress Baby in an outfit that does not leave lines on their skin. Sometimes babies are naked during their milestone portraits and this makes sure their skin looks soft.
Please arrive about 10 minutes early. Your session begins at time you selected your appointment via the online booking & scheduling page. There are often multiple sessions in one day so this will ensure we use all of your time wisely.
Please bring diaper bag essentials. We will wipe Baby’s face with a baby wipe right before we begin the session so that Baby’s face is clean and there are no leftover crumbs from their breakfast, ha!
Please feel free to bring a special toy Baby loves. This can be helpful when capturing smiles. You’re also welcome to let me know of any favorite songs. My son, Jack, for instance, loves “baby shark,” ha!
After our session
14 days after your session takes place you will receive an online proofing gallery of images from our time together. Your gallery will share how to select your images, download your portraits, safely archive them in the cloud, and also a great list of labs to use for your printing needs.
