Wrapped Newborn Mini Session by Sarah Borchgrevink Photography

15 of the Cutest Lil Taters in Studio: Potato Sack Pose and Wrapping

15 Babies Who Slayed Their Potato Sack Newborn Pose 

Versatile & Why It's the Best

Hi, friends! Today's blog post is a great read because it's all about my favorite type of newborn wrapping during my posed session: potato sack pose. This post also showcases 15 precious earth side cherubs who totally rocked this setup! Wrapping little ones makes for totally unique, special, and very laid back sessions.

Part of hiring a professional portrait photographer for your little one's first session is choosing someone who will keep baby's comfort in mind. Since the baby has spent nine months in a warm, tight place this style of wrapping is not only adorable but keeps baby very sleepy and calm. Essentially, creating an environment that mimics the womb baby does super well!

This is the best style of newborn wrapping because it's most versatile. For instance, during this pose you can do the following setups:

  • Sibling

  • Mom with Baby

  • Dad with Baby

  • Mom/Dad/Baby

  • Baby in floor prop

  • Baby on the flokati rug

  • Baby "sitting up" in potato sack pose

  • Baby laying down in potato sack pose

  • Macro images (up close detailed images of baby's features)

This allows you to create a gorgeous gallery for clients while seamlessly moving through tons of set ups! Moreover, potato sack pose is the best style of wrapping because it truly embodies baby as a bundle of joy. Parents marvel at how round they are - just like a little basketball! 

I typically start my newborn sessions with this style, though have been known to sometimes end in a potato sack, too. Each baby is different! 

Newborn Wrapping Basics

When wrapping a baby in potato sack pose, it is very important to ensure they are stable and properly supported. This style of wrapping can be achieved by attending a newborn workshop on safety + session flow. I would not recommend this pose to anybody who has not taken any hands on training as they baby is sitting up. The workshops will teach you how to achieve this look with baby's safety in mind. 

Potato sack wrapping is also a great way to incorporate texture into the session. For example, there are several types of textiles on hand from cheesecloth to chunky knits. They may vary, depending on season, but are wonderful ways to elevate your newborn session through unique props. I adore using handcrafted hats and bonnets, too, to highlight baby's chubby cheeks! Few things are as precious as a brand new little one. Sometimes they even give us a smile, seen below, which is a total gem to capture. Such sweetness!

Simple Newborn Wrapping & Posing

Keep baby nice and snug by ensuring their joints are wrapping perfectly. This keeps baby very sleepy and content. They can be posed into adorable floors props, such as buckets, bowls, crates, etc. The options are endless, and my clients have full access to the vast array of awesome props I have on hand. In fact, I am constantly adding to my stash and am mildly (who I kidding, TOTALLY) addicted to having new items on hand for my most precious clients!

Outdoor Family First Birthday Session Cake Smash in Houston

The M Family's Natural Light & Outdoor Family Cake Smash Combination in honor of Baby Boy Jeremy turning the big one.

Here's what Jeremy's parents had to say about their baby plan membership to Sarah Borchgrevink Photography:

Sarah is absolutely fantastic. Not only are her pictures superb, but her professionalism, personality, and all around demeanor are top notch. We are baby plan clients and at our of  sessions Sarah has been very easy to work with and has taken our specific likes and wants and incorporated them into our sessions. The best part by far is her turn around time. At our sessions we received our online gallery within a week of our session! I highly recommend Sarah for newborn and family photography!

Friends, good morning! I am excited to blog this incredibly adorable children's session in which we did a family + birthday photo shoot for one of my longtime clients. The M family first contacted me while Mom was pregnant; they booked a baby plan membership, which is a wonderful way to preserve the first year of life for your precious little one.

The Baby Plan Membership is any of the following combination:

  • In studio posed newborn session (wrapped mini, petite or full collection) of your choice
  • Any combination of 3, 6, 9 or 12 month milestone session

In this case, this sweet couple chose to do a full newborn collection as well as 6 and 12 month session. This is the most popular combination since many parents see the most difference in growth between newborn and 6 months; followed by 6 and 12 month differences. Here are some of my favorite images from our sunrise session.

Family Photos Take Place First 

Family sessions are lifestyle in nature, meaning I embrace the spirit of your family. I encourage you to play with your kiddo, interact with your spouse and feel at ease. Family photos take place at the beginning so that little one has time to warm up to me. Plus, baby will be smashing a cake after the family part so this makes sure baby is clean for your family images, ha!

Individual Photos of Baby Are after family

The milestone portion of your child's session follows the family set ups. Milestone portion is where we focus on developmental changes since our last session together. For 12 months, it's usually standing or walking, pulling up, clapping their hands, smiling, and really showcasing their personality.

Let Them Eat Cake

After baby's individual portion of milestone images, we then focus on the cake smash aspect of your session. I provide timeless and vintage inspired props for this session, but also ensure baby is the focus of our time together, too. I do not like distracting aspects in the images so props are kept to a minimum so baby will be the shining star. Examples of props I may bring as things like an antique high chair, quilt, crate, etc. Due to allergy purposes, I have parents bring the cake. You may go as festive or minimalist as you like. :-) Outdoor cake smash or first birthday sessions always take place right around sunrise or sunset, too, for optimal lighting. You're given a location list to pick from so have no worries: I have lots of good options for you!

It's all in the details

An important aspect to me is the details of your session. I love showing off their little toes, messy hands, sweet up close shots of their faces, etc. While we do include many images of baby playing, exploring and checking out the cake, I adore showing all those precious moments Mamas are sure to love. Their little fingers, for instance, reaching for the cake is absolutely precious as can be! They're only little for a short time. Let them be small. This cake smash encourages them to be who they are and their personalities to shine through.

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.
