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.


All sessions are fully inclusive, meaning you select a package that includes a set number of digital files + a print release.

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.

Seafoam Hues & Accents for Unique Color Schemes and Dreamy Skintones

Set your little one’s portrait apart with stunning colors

When you book a professional posed newborn session with Sarah, you are going to receive a styling questionnaire. This questionnaire has you share colors you like and perhaps even a few you dislike. However, over the years I’ve worked in studio, I have found a common trend: sometimes parents are scared of color because they think it will be too brash or harsh again a their little bundle of joy’s skin.

Have no fear: through the use of studio lighting, top of the line camera gear, unique styling, and my vast array of luxury baby props color is my jam. This is how I create those ever so dreamy skin tones through the use of contrast.

You see, for my personal taste I like the baby to shine and to do so without distractions. Props are natural, timeless, and vintage-inspired so your gallery is forever in style. Think of it as a little black dress: always perfect, never dated.

While neutrals are a wonderful addition to posed sessions, I do urge you think about the following: if your home decor or nursery is neutral the pops of color can be breathtaking! For instance, if Baby is on a white backdrop, in a white picture frame, on a white wall they may blend in too much; however, with color, your baby will have fantastic skin tones, due to the contract, and the color will not make their skin look too dark.

In fact, I have noticed, when requesting colors, parents sometimes think about the colors they would use to decorate their homes versus colors that accent the decor in their home.

A few of my favorite colors from which to draw inspiration:

  • azure

  • teal

  • navy

  • royal blue

  • turquoise

  • green

  • aquamarine

  • blue-grey

  • indigo

  • cobalt

  • jade

  • sea foam

  • spinach

  • willow

  • olive

  • apple

  • chartreuse

And more!

You’ll always find a few neutral setups in each baby photography session I photograph, however, please allow me to introduce awe-inspiring setups reflecting a gorgeous yet timeless use of color sure to create unique works to adorn your walls.

As you can see, the color against Baby’s skin gives them such a creamy, soft gorgeous hue in their perfect chubby cheeks! These colors are my absolute favorite to work with and I’m also so pleased when parents give me creative freedom to showcase all the neat ideas with a newly arrived bundle of joy.
