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}

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.

Each session cost is one flat rate to receive your 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 your 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.

I Love Your “Beary” Much | Teddy Bear Bonnet is Most Requested Prop

Sweet, vintage, and adorable teddy bear hats make for a precious newborn session! 

Hi, friends! When designing custom newborn sessions for the cutest babies in Houston, I send a curated styling questionnaire to all of my Moms and Dads who are going to be visiting! There are a set of questions that ensure we have a fantastic session together; on one portion, nevertheless, there's a spot in which you may request a prop you've seen in my portfolio.

Newborn Baby Hats | The Must Have

vintage newborn photography props

Oh, my goodness! The bear hats, by far, are the most requested prop by parents! I have several adorable colors: grey, beige, blue, purple, and white. I also have a pink one but I have not yet photographed it, ha! This is the cutest prop because what is more precious than a baby animal?! Every newborn photographer needs to have these hats on hands. Not only do they have a classic, timeless, and vintage feel to them, but they perfectly frame your baby's face and showcase all of their darling features such as a button nose, full lips, perfectly plump cheeks, lashes for days, soft tufts of hair, oh my gosh! Too adorable for words! 

Beige | For the love of neutrals

This beige bear hat bonnet is absolutely adorable on Colt William! His parents requested earth tones and neutrals; for instance, beige and tan look wonderful with khaki, grey, white, light brown, ecru, etc. If you're a fan of all  things natural and muted, this bear bonnet would be the perfect addition for your new arrival. In this particlar set up, I paired a precious vintage bed, hand made by my favorite prop vendor, with organic textiles and the rustic wood floors. All of these textures work together to create the best Houston newborn photography.

Light Blue | Little Gentlemen's Cap

Dylan Jacob visited my Houston Newborn Portrait Studio at just 15 days old for a wrapped newborn mini session. This is an affordable newborn package featuring stunning macro images, three rustic and vintage-inspired floor props such as buckets, crates, bowls, etc., as well as three cozy styles of newborn wrapping that will forever preserve trhis incredibly special time in your life. This package is perfect because full styling is provided, such as this adorable set up seen below, in which Dylan's sweet parents requested blue hues, such as periwnkle for their little gentlemen. This bear bonnet is stunning against his skin!

White | Gender Neutral for either little ladies and handsome fellas!

Of all the newborn color schemes, white may be the easiest to add to a girl or a boy newborn session simply because it pairs well with any color, light or dark, vibrant or muted, girl or boy. In this case, beautiful Isabella is rocking a white teddy bear hat during her full newborn session at 7 days fresh and new. She is wrapped in the darling potato sack pose, in which baby is perfectly round and oh so adorable!

Purple | Lovely for Little Girls

Ella is showcasing all things all things purple such as orchid, mulberry, mauve, and plum. Purple is a great color to consider for your newborn session because it's different than pink. While pink is totally classic and darling, purple is a little more vibrant and may I say unique. Purple looks much better against newborn skin, too, and creates dewy skin tones whereas pink often washes out a newborn girl, since babies are typically very rosy. This purple bear hat is adorable with all things in the purple family and any hue from lilac to violet.

warmly,

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.
