Payment Plans | Professional Newborn Photography Can Be Affordable

Affordable Payment Plan Options with Houston Newborn Photographer Sarah Borchgrevink

When photographing a new baby in my studio, I often spend around an hour setting up for your sessions. I pull many beautiful items that are typically hand crafted and are from other local businesses such as wraps, tie backs, textiles, and antique shops such as buckets, bowls, and all the props you may have seen in my newborn portfolio or studio.

I also spend 1-2 hours photographing your sweet cherub and then around 3 hours retouching the images before sending you the gallery. Afterwards, the images are yours for a lifetime. They'll be loved, treasured, and displayed for years to come. You'll see them throughout their childhood, at their wedding, and passed down as a family heirloom. You're not taking these images just for yourself: but for your children. 

What You're Investing In: Art & Talent

As a full time small business owner, there are expenses professional photographers have to upkeep. For instance, just a few of monthly expenses your photographer are responsible for is a 30 percent income tax, the rent or mortgage for our business space, health insurance, utilities, business insurance, vehicle usage, supplies, professional website maintenance, subscriptions to editing software, meals, training and mentoring, our bookkeeping or CPA services, attorney on retainer, gas and mileage, etc. The list is never ending. This why professional portrait artists charge the rates we charge: because in order to run a successful business we have to be responsible owners. It's all part of our cost of doing business. I say this in complete transparency so clients see there is a reason behind the rates you see listed on a pricing or investment guide.

Also, as a Houston Newborn Photographer, I've invested into my own newborn photography education through safety workshops, newborn mentoring, and classes on lighting, equipment, styling of your sessions and post processing of images. I use top of the line camera equipment as well as a custom built super PC so your sessions are edited efficiently. I am still mentoring and will continue to do so because being stagnant is not an option.

Why Flexible Payment Plans Are An Option To All my Clients

A few days ago, on Facebook, a close friend told me the following, " I really wish I had budgeted and planned ahead so I could do newborn sessions for my daughter! Worth every penny but sometimes pennies are hard to come by." Another friend also relayed, " I am so sad that we couldn't afford newborn photos." Hearing this made me feel like I had done my friends a disservice. While they did not inquire into my professional newborn photography sessions, they also did not know that payment plans are always an option with my studio. Professional newborn photography is an investment, one of which you'll never regret making, however, I also understand sometimes parents have many other expenses during their pregnancy. Photography is a luxury. 

With my friends explaining this to me, I feel compelled to write a post explaining that I offer payment plans year around to everyone. Don't be afraid to ask. You should not miss out on these precious, fleeting images. Newborn sessions take place in the first 14 days of life so this allows you to capture this brand new milestone with affordable options.

How My Payment Plans Work

If a payment plan is the way you'd like to book, let's get this process started! I have a few options for you to select from. You may select 1, 3, 6, 9 or 12 months. There is a $100 non-refundable retainer to secure the payment plan. The rest of your balance is broken up into your selected time length. Many parents are excited to still be able to have the session with a smaller up front investment. Then, you have time needed to pay for your session.

How Are Payment Plans Setup

Clients have two options for setting up a payment plan. They may pay through credit or debit cards of their choice. You may also use personal checks. You are invoiced according to your payment plan preference (1, 3, 6, 9 or 12 months). There is no interest so you will not incur any additional charges other than your flat rate listed on the pricing guide.

When you receive your images or products

Ten business days after your final payment has been made, you will receive an online digital gallery filled with your perfected and retouched high resolution digital files. There will also be instructions on how to order the heirloom prints that come in your collection. The digital files are yours to download, share, print, enjoy, etc. You may treasure them forever! While I do not release any final copies without payment in full, your photos are backed up onto two different hard drives as well as a cloud subscription so they stay safe while they await to be retouched.

Option to pay off your payment plan earlier 

Many times, the clients I have done payment plans with have chosen to pay their session off earlier than expected. While there is no rush to do so, this is an option if you choose to complete your final installment at an earlier date. Parents are excited to receive the images and often cannot wait to have the gallery.

Houston Infant Photography | Colorful Newborn Session at 7 Days

Colorful & Vibrant Tones during a 7 Day Old Newborn Baby Boy Portraiture Session in Houston Texas

Welcome Handsome Little One | Laksh at 7 Days Old

Greetings to you! Welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah and I'd love to welcome you. First and foremost: thank you for stopping by! I am a Houston Newborn Photographer specializing in all things squishy baby portraits. I delight in designing vibrant, soulful an vintage inspired sessions to preserve this incredibly special time in your life. Through the use of dynamic lighting and impeccable retouching, I present you with the most lovely gallery of images. You're sure to treasure these for a lifetime! 

To begin, today's blog post focuses on a little boy who visited my studio at just 6 days new! He weighed just under 7 pounds and had a stunning head full of hair. He slept wonderfully for our time together and we had a great time. His parents chose the petite newborn collection, which is my middle collection; it has a little bit of everything from sweet parent posing, antique floor props, and even some curly, oh so darling posing.

I pride myself on offering a great experience, too! My newborn studio is conveniently located in Northwest Houston with easy access to all major freeways and toll roads. I am about 20 minutes outside the 610 loop, half an hour from The Woodlands and North Houston, or half an hour from areas like Bellaire, too. 

Here are some of my favorite images from my time with this handsome little one. Keep reading for more details, images, or if you're curious about booking your own newborn session, I am happy to assist you.

The "froggy pose" for bean bag

The froggy pose for bean bag is a favorite among parents. It is, however, done as a composite to ensure newborn safety. I have taken several workshops on how to carefully pose brand new babies. I also like to do two different angles if possible. This adorable, custom bonnet is from one of my favorite European vendors and then the super soft, darling sage wrap is from a great gal here in the states.

Rainbow Baby Girl Calista | Cutest Houston Newborn Photography

Sarah Borchgrevink Photography offers timeless, fresh and unique baby photography. Calista + her sweet parents visited the studio at 11 days new.

Hi, friends! Good morning to you! Happy Friday! Today is a great day here in Houston. The sun is shining, it's about 80 degrees out, and I have a full calendar of fun shoots geared up for this weekend. However, up first is an adorable studio session focusing on a precious baby girl. If this is your first time at my blog, welcome! I'm excited you're here. 

In case you're interested, C's parents booked both a natural light, outdoor maternity session that took place during sunset . This is a huge treat for me because it's fun to work together before we document your newborn baby's session. This is also a great idea for clients because it ensures the editing style is the same so all of your wall art is cohesive and matches, plus it means you've met the person who will be handling your new baby. As a mama, I completely understand who you choose to photograph your newborn is a huge deal! I am currently pregnant with baby number 4 and just booked me own newborn session for him; I did a TON of research! 

Also: before we dive into the session I have to brag a little bit. Mom is a super talented hair and make up artist serving the entire Houston area. I refer her to all of my clients so here's a little more information about her professional beauty services in case you're ever looking for someone to make some magic, ha! She also is extremely sweet, giving, kind and a joy to work with. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She's located close to my studio, too, so it's really convenient. 

Let's get started, shall we? :-) 

Family and Parent Images 

For family and parent images, I like to wrap baby in a soft neutral color so as not to detract from baby's elegance. For little boys, I generally leave them without a bonnet or hat, however, for little ladies, like Calista, I will adorn their sweet heads with a lovely flower crown, headband or tie back. In this particular instance, I used a pink and purple headband by one of my favorite newborn prop vendors since this reflects the colors in baby's nursery. This vendor is located in the UK, but makes amazing items! Check her out. :-)

Rainbow Baby Girl | Calista at 11 days fresh & new

You may be asking yourself, "What's a rainbow baby?" According to kick's count, a rainbow baby is:

A “rainbow baby” is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.

The mama natural blog also elaborates explaining that:

Like the miracle of a rainbow after a storm, many mamas refer to babies born after loss as their rainbow babies.  The rainbow doesn’t erase the storm, nor does the arrival of a new baby eclipse the tragedy of previous pregnancy loss.

Calista and her parents stopped by for a full newborn collection when she was 11 days fresh and new. Weighing over 9 pounds, her chubby cheeks and adorable features truly made my heart melt. I could not help but marvel at her beauty and tell her mama how lucky she is. 

This collection is about 2 hours long. This gives plenty of time for baby to be fed, soothed, etc., and also allows for diaper changes and a relaxed atmosphere.

There's something especially fresh and pure about using white during a newborn session. While I am a really big fan of all things vibrant, I do include neutrals here and there since it adds a timeless element to your gallery. All of my headbands, tie backs, bonnets and hats are custom designed by small business owners so there's a huge selection.

This super cute floor prop is a dream! I wish it was mine, but Mom did bring it in. It looks perfect again the burgundy!

Spring & North Houston Baby Portraits

Followed by the vintage Dr. Pepper box, we used one of my favorite buckets. The sage green looks lovely on her. Green, you see, is one of those colors parents don't always consider. That's part of my job during session design: coming up with neat combinations for you. 

Humble TX Photography: Newborn Portraiture

The vintage cradle is one of my other favorite props. This is because the prop can be styled to reflect the gender of baby. In this case, we used a soft mauve that's muted. Pink is not my favorite color but I will use a mauve here and there. While there is nothing wrong with the color pink, it's a common color and my goal is to create interesting images that are dynamic, fresh and authentic through the use of texture, color, and vintage inspired props and items. :-) If you like pink, however, no worries! I always make sure it is showcased at some point in your collection. In case you are interested in some alternatives to pink, feel free to read away!

After floor props, this is where we do the bean bag posing. All of these are done with care and usually take about 45 minutes from start to finish. Baby does call the shots here, so if she is not comfortable in a pose, we move on and try something else. If you would like to read more about my favorite newborn poses, too, you'll find tons of great information on newborn safety, posing and handling.
