Portraiture Memberships Explained: Baby Plan or Belly & Newborn & More!

Sarah Borchgrevink shares details about the popular portraiture memberships to her studio. Located in Houston, she happily offers transparent pricing and fully digital, modern collections you may treasure.

As a full time photographer, specializing in posed infant sessions, I am often asked if there is a bundle or package catering to parents looking to book multiple appointments. Great news, there is! This post shares details about the portraiture memberships, what’s included, and how to book.

What’s a portraiture membership to Sarah’s Studio?

Booking a membership to my studio is simple: it means you have solidified your appointments on the calendar, in advance, and have priority with booking. It ensures you’re guaranteed a spot on my busy calendar. It also means we can plan your sessions in advance and create stunning works of art that cohesively blend together since they’re done by the same artist. Your membership means you’ve commissioned me to photograph milestones in your life, and you have my utmost undivided attention and joy!

What combinations are offered?

There are three membership options available! They are as follows:

  • Belly and Newborn | Includes a maternity session + posed newborn session {2 sessions}

  • Baby Plan | Includes newborn, little sitter at 7 months, and a 12 month session {3 sessions}

  • Maternity + Baby Plan | Includes a maternity session + newborn, little sitter, and 12 month session {4 sessions}.

These combinations encompass the biggest milestones: pregnancy, Baby’s arrival, Baby sitting up, and Baby turning one - oh so much fun! Each gallery is a unique collection of gorgeous images showcasing all things wonderful about this time in your life.

Package Costs + What’s Included:

Each session cost is one flat rate to receive you full resolution digital gallery of non-watermarked images, unlimited printing rights of your images, and also a curated list of labs so you know where to purchase you prints, canvases, albums, wall art, and more!

What to expect?

Maternity sessions generally take place when your baby bump is around 29-34 weeks along. These are best photographed at sunrise or sunset, unless you select a studio appointment, as this is when the light is most beautiful and flattering to the pregnant silhouette. Your spouse and children are also welcome to participate, as well as family pets, if this is your preference, as I recognize that animals are family, too.

Posed newborn appointments are scheduled as soon as possible once your cherub is earthside! The best time to visit with your bundle of joy is when they’’re 5-9 days old, although the first 14 days of life is also acceptable. Your baby is sleepy, curly, mold-able, and able to be safely posed into those squishy oh-so-precious posed in which all their serene sleeping selves and squishy rolls are showcased! Floor props, wrapping, family, sibling, parent, and macro images are also included for an incredibly diverse, well rounded gallery you’ll treasure and pass down to your sweet little arrival as they grow into an adult.

Full styling is always provided, which means rustic, dreamy, and timeless works of art by Sarah! Floor props such as vintage or antique pieces, buckets, bowls, crates, and unique and handmade one a kind props make your session extra special! Hats, bonnets, caps, headbands, accessories, and costumed are also included for your baby, as well as all textiles, wraps, backgrounds, etc. The studio is fully stoked and ready to create the best newborn images in Houston.

Sit back, just bring Baby and their diaper bag, enjoy book, watch Netflix, and snack away (all snacks and drinks provided!) while I skillfully pose your little one and create a great experience!

When your precious baby is around 7 months old, you’ll visit for their little sitter session! I will provide all their outfits and props, just like the newborn session, and ensure everything matches! That way, when you hang the photos on the wall, your collection is cohesive both in shooting style, props, editing, and of course the final look of the professional edited imaged. Don’t worry - I tell you where to print your photos so they look amazing!

At 12 months old, you will visit again! Like all of your other sessions, all props and styling will be provided.
