Posed Newborn Session Information | What's Included When Booking with Sarah

Posed Newborn Photography Session Information

Welcome to the blog! This post is an informative piece sharing an overview of what’s included in an appointment when booking your little one’s first professional images! I am honored you’ve stopped by and hope you find these details helpful. Let’s get started.

Fully Inclusive Packages & Pricing

As a full time business owner, and Mom to four young children, being transparent and making things easy for parents is the heart of my business. At SBP, packages are one flat rate for the entire session. This includes session design, props, time and talent as well as allotted coverage, retouching, proofing, the preparation of your final gallery, and a stunning full resolution digital gallery of non-watermarked images you may print as many times as you like. A list of three free cloud storage recommendations and consumer grade labs are also given so you’re sure to know how to safely archive your photos. Feel free to also check out newborn package & pricing for Houston baby photography.

Two Week Turnaround Time for Proofing

  • There are no in person sales appointments, separate session fees, or minimum print orders to receive your digital files. Instead, you have a proofing gallery you view from the comfort of your home, couch, or even with family members. You’ll select your favorite images and have the option to add more images if you’d like though there is no obligation to do so. If you would like professional prints and heirloom products these are available through your gallery, though just like upgrading to additional digital files there is no obligation to do so. Soft proofing is my method of choice for previewing images and what many clients relay they prefer.

Everything is provided

Everything for your sweet cherub is provided. This includes hundreds and hundreds of props such as gorgeous bonnets, headbands, dainty outfits, backdrops, buckets, bowls, baskets, wraps, and more! Simply bring your little one’s diaper bag and leave the rest to me. A styling questionnaire ensures your favorite colors make an appearance, though everything will be cohesive and match the vintage-inspired, dreamy, rustic, and timeless brand of Sarah Borchgrevink Photography. Your gallery will stand the test of time and be amazing even 30 years from now.

Please look through my Houston Newborn Photography Galleries to ensure we’re a good fit for one another! It is best you select someone who props and poses make your heart swoon. Your baby will only be brand new for a few weeks and you generally have one chance to have these images.

Classic, Timeless, and Natural Baby Photography

SBP is a traditional posed newborn photographer (Ranked Best Houston Newborn Photographers 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019) and is known for simple, natural, and vintage-inspired baby portraits with non-distracting props and themes to artfully preserve Baby as a brand new bundle of joy. Cozy wrapping, bean bag posing, and stunning macro images are the heart of the styling. If you are a fan of simplistic, stylish, and classic session designs than I’m the photographer or you. Parent, family, and sibling images are also available.


To book your appointment with Sarah, it is best to do so in advance. There are a limited amount of appointments per month to ensure every client has availability for their session. By signing your contract & fulfilling your contract, preferably in the second or third trimester, you have access and priority to the scheduling & booking calendar first.

To get this process started you’re welcome to visit the online booking page and follow the step by step instructions.

Once your baby is born, you will pick your session date & time as soon as possible. I like you to visit in the first 14 days if possible with 5-9 days being my absolute favorite sessions. Earlier is best. New babies are best photographed as they move less, sleep better, are more curly, have less baby acne, etc. Top newborn safety soothing techniques are used throughout the entire session.

Feel free to also ask questions or inquire via the contact tab, too, and we can schedule a phone, e-mail, or in person consultation. You’re also welcome to see a full gallery of any session type you’re interested in as it is important to ensure you like the style of photography I implement during my sessions.

Moreover, once your Baby is born you will receive a posed newborn prep guide telling you everything that will happen before, during, and after your session. This prep guide also covers what type of outfits to wear to your appointment should you choose to participate in your baby’s professional portraits.

Where is the studio located?

As of June 2019, Sarah is located in Uptown, inside the 610 loop, in order to be central to all parts of Houston. The address is 4550 Post Oak Place, Suite 203, Houston TX, 77027.

If you think we might be a good fit for one another I would love to chat with you!

Forget the Fox! What Does an Adorable Baby Wolf Pup Say?

Custom and Handmade Newborn Baby Wolf Hat Prop

What could possibly be cuter than a newly arrive little one? How about a precious baby boy adorned with the cutest animal baby wolf hat? This vintage-inspired handmade, made to order prop is a favorite of mine because it’s unique though also has impeccable quality! The gorgeous charcoal gray color and sweet little ears make my heart sing! This amazing sweet little wolfy knitted bonnet is made from the softest alpaca yarn so it is sure to set your gallery apart. Here are three setups showcasing timeless, classic, and rustic inspired baby portraits with the cutest little hat you’ll ever see!

Three Ways to Use Baby Wolf Bonnet In Studio Newborn Photography

Part of being one of the Best Houston Newborn Photographers (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019) is having a fantastic array of props on hand in my studio space. For instance, you’ll find vintage-inspired floor props, darling hats and bonnets that are handcrafted, as well as the daintiest of headbands, halos, and tiebacks for newborn baby girls. These elements, combined, create timeless, unique, and rustic baby portraits that truly stand the test of time.

This in mind, an infant wold hat is simply incredibly cute, unique, and hard to pass up when styling baby sessions! You won’t ever be dissapointed with your little wolf cub!

Baby in a bucket posing

The first way to use an adorable wolf hat prop is to place baby in the forward facing pose, on their belly, in an antique, rustic floor prop such as a bucket. For little boys, I adore using classic color schemes such as grey as this will not only look amazing in any home decor, as the images are intended to be hung in your home, but also suggests baby’s gender and is neutral enough to shine anywhere! This baby boy, below, is named Cole and he visited for a full newborn session at my Houston Baby Portrait Studio when he was just about a week old. He is so handsome with a smoky gray color scheme such as ash, dove, stone and slate. There are truly more than 50 shades of grey, ha! This hat is special because it is hand crafted and different than the usual fox hats that are very popular now. In fact, to see more of Cole’s session, you may be interested in clicking over to the sibling, parent, and family poses to see him with his big brother.

Vintage-Inspired Newborn Wooden Bed Prop

The second way to use an animal hat during a posed newborn session is placing baby on their back in a floor prop, such as the timeless and incredibly precious wooden bed prop. This is from one of my favorite vendors who makes all of my natural, wooden, and classic bed props. This little guy is named Henry. He was born in early February 2019, though spent many weeks in the NICU and so by the time he came home and was settled he had missed the traditional 14 day or newer time frame for his posed baby photo shoot. This in mind, I offer flexible scheduling for babies and the wrapped newborn session is the perfect way to showcase your little one, which is available up to 40 days old, for full term babies, and 13 weeks old for NICU stays. Here he is wrapped in the ‘tootsie’ style and his sweet chubby cheeks are just perfect!

Potato Sack Pose

The third way to use a super cute, customized newborn baby wolf hat prop is to wrap baby in the popular potato sack pose and place them on their back. This style of newborn session wrapping is perfect for little ones who like to be swaddled. Not only is it super cozy but makes for the sweetest, timeless baby portraits! Together, there are three styles I utilize and this gives tons of variety. The baby seen here is named Theo and his parents are some of my favorite! They’ve been great clients over the years and have done about 15 sessions with me so far, ha! I am so honored to have the best clients in Houston support me. For Theo’s posed infant photos, the charcoal and heather grey mix is the perfect texture to show trendy themes but also remain perfectly classic. Remember: your gallery is meant to forever stand the test of time and authentically preserve the brand new baby time in your life. As a mother to four kiddos myself, I can attest how fleeting this time is so the styling is meant to be as timeless and classic as possible. The little wolf hat adorns his sweet face and I adore his hands folded beneath his chin!
