Sarah Borchgrevink: Best Houston Newborn Photos

Dad’s Little Football Player | How to Add a Special Prop from Home

Special request by parents: Lucas' sports inspired newborn boy session. Let's play some ball!

Greetings, friends! A common question I receive from parents is, "Can we bring a prop from home?" No worries! The answer is simple: YES. As a professional newborn photographer in Houston, I have a portrait studio catering to all things newborn and baby. I pride myself on offering a huge array of props and textiles to create lovely sessions. However, I also recognize parents often have a few ideas of their own. I delight in offering timeless and unique styled sessions and will happily incorporate a few of your own items into my session.

For example, when Lucas' sweet mama called to book her newborn collection, she relayed that Dad is a huge sports fan and they would love to showcase a few sports themed baby photography images during our time together. First and foremost: I was completely honored to hear from her because she was kind as can be, but also I knew I had a few great ideas up my sleeve to still maintain my newborn style while also incorporating a prop from the clients' house. 

Baby with Football during Posed Session

Little man Lucas visited at just 7 days new. He was a full term baby boy weighing over 8 pounds! So much gorgeous newborn rolls, chunk, and a cherub face that is too handsome! When adding a prop that is not found in my studio space, such as a football or other sport, there are a few spots you may easily add the item, such as the bucket, seen below, or even during the naked bean bag posing.

Timeless and Unique Newborn Set up with football | Styling and Vision

When styling a brand new baby's session, my motto is simple: vintage meets classic for timeless results. I use antique props and rustic floors to create dreamy images. I also like for the sessions to be very masculine for little boys and very dainty for girl babies. To add the football into the session I chose charcoal grey, heather grey, and a metal pail that pops against the barnwood floors and rich colored football. This is a wonderful compromise to be true to my own newborn photos (dreamy, gorgeous, classic images) without having too many distracting props that take away from the beauty of baby boy.

A second place to add the football into the session is during the naked bean bag posing. I love working with little ones during this set up because this showcases all of their adorable newborn features from their tiny fingers, chubby cheeks, long lashes, etc. I posed Lucas in forward-facing pose, seen above, and then added the football underneath him. Mom and Dad were right next to me helping me assist during this time. :-) Remember: baby's safety is of the utmost importance so it's always best to act with caution. 

There you have it! Two adorable yet timeless ways to add a special prop from home into your newborn session! Thanks for stopping by, friends! Keep on scrolling if you'd like to read more details about the professional portrait services provided by Sarah Borchgrevink Photography.

I'd love to meet your baby! Let's connect for your own session.

Darling Little Boy Attire | Sharing Best Baby Clothing Vendor

Houston Baby Photographer, Sarah Borchgrevink, shares the cutest clothing options from an incredible small business shop specializing in photography props for newborn artists.

Studio Wardrobe or Shop on your own

When booking your baby's milestone session at Sarah Borchgrevink Photography, there are a few awesome options! I have a popular baby plan membership for clients to consider, but there are also three collections of single sessions such as my mini, petite or full. All collections are a spectacular hybrid model: both heirloom prints and full resolution digital files are included. This in mind, since I streamline my pricing and keep it very transparent, I also would love to showcase a favorite vendor of mine for baby clothing. After all, my job is to make the booking process simple and not cause any stress for new parents.

As a professional newborn baby photographer, I have many adorable props on hand! Part of being one of the most reputable photographers in Houston is showcasing many options for parents to consider. For instance, I joyfully offer outfits for your baby 6-month sitter sessions. I have items on hand, but I also have a great vendor I would love to refer to you, too! George&Annie is spectacular! All of their items are handmade, with love, and the customer service is just wonderful. These are also very affordable clothing choices, too, for parents who would like to remain in budget. You're also welcome to use these outfits, too, for your time in my Houston Newborn Studio, located at Barker Cypress/290.

Amber, the shop owner of the vendor listed above, also offers these gorgeous items, too:

  • bonnets

  • rompers

  • pants

  • mini blankets

  • sets

With over 1300 sales, she is a great choice because she is reliable, professional, keeps great communication, sews with love, and is very responsive. She also makes high quality outfits for little ones in the softest textiles! I simply adore her items and am a happy customer!

While this vendor does offer baby girl & newborn outfits, I am showcasing two of the boy options I have on hand. Jack, my little guy, is 4 months old but already is wearing 12-month clothing, oh my goodness! He is even starting to sit up unassisted, father time please slow down! He is 20 pounds and just the sweetest little man alive!

My favorite part of these outfits is how classic, timeless and simple they are. These pieces allow your baby to shine without detracting from their features. To further elaborate, when I look at photos of my precious baby boy, Jack, I just swoon over his smile, sparkling eyes, chubby fingers, and little belly! I am not distracted by a loud, boisterous print or cartoon characters. The dainty buttons are the perfect vintage-inspired element reflecting all things timeless so these images will transcend all trends and forever be classic.

Houston Maternity & Newborn Membership Package | Everything You Need to Know

Located in Uptown, Sarah Borchgrevink offers stunning maternity portraiture as well as breathtaking newborn images.

Good morning, friends! Greetings! Today's blog post is a nifty one filled with everything you need to know when it comes to booking a beautiful session! There is a Belly & Baby membership which is ideal for parents seeking both maternity & newborn photography services. There is a discount, moreover, for parents booking multiple sessions at one time. You also have priority on the calendar.

I am happy to share further details and information about maternity & newborn portraiture. Most mothers book their maternity & newborn membership around 20 weeks, or the second trimester. Maternity sessions take place when your baby bump is anywhere from 31-36 weeks along. These take place in a natural light, on location setting and are the perfect way to celebrate your session! Through natural posing, sun-kissed lighting, and gorgeous scenery, I create timeless images showcasing the love and bond between an expecting couple or mother to be. As of June 1st, 2019 there will be the option, however, to photograph your session in the new studio located in Uptown.

For the newborn portion, your due date is placed on the calendar as a placeholder, however, the actual session takes place in the first 14 days of baby’s life with the best sessions being around 6-7-8 days new. You will select your session date from the online scheduling calendar as soon as Baby is born. I am a full-time newborn photographer based in Uptown.
