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}

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.

Then & Now: An Overview of New Arrivals who turned the Big O-N-E- in 2018

Sarah Borchgrevink specializes in studio newborn and baby portraiture! Check out some of the cutest baby plan clients from 2018.

Photographing a brand new baby is an absolute dream! There is no job more perfect and makes my heart sing than documenting this absolutely precious time in a family’s life as they welcome a little one into their lives. However, baby plan membership clients are extra special because I’ve had the honor of not only photographing their cherub’s first professional photos, though many of these parents also choose me for pregnancy images, little sitter 7 month sessions, and the 12 month cake smash & splash!

First things first: what’s a baby plan?

Ha! I’m glad you asked! At Sarah Borchgrevink Photography, a baby plan membership can be broken into two categories for parents seeking multiple sessions with the same photographer.

  • maternity, newborn, little sitter, and one year

  • newborn, little sitter, and one year

Sometimes, however, parents will choose to do a newborn session and then follow up with a one year old set of images, since I tell parents they should book what is most important to them.

As 2018 comes to a close, I am sharing a handful of my favorite clients who turned one on this glorious year! Let’s get started. Let the cuteness begin!

“Having Sarah take newborn pictures of our newborn was a TERRIFIC decision!
I have used other newborn and family photographers in the past and Sarah is the most prepared, patient, and fluid of all of them. She has a vision of the shots she wants to take and the studio is set up and ready to go prior to your session. The excitement and passion Sarah has for photographing newborns is unmatched! She looooves babies and looooves what she does. Her exuberance and professionalism made the session go so quickly and smoothly. The final products are AMAZING! I worked for Disney and they always taught us, “Communication is key”. Sarah GETS IT! She was by far the best at communicating and touching base before and after our session. “ - Emily

“Had an amazing experience with Sarah from the beginning. Sarah was very professional in all of her communications and very fast to respond to any questions we had. When it came to the week of our shoot, the weather was looking a little shaky and Sarah kept us very up to date on the plan should weather cause any issues. The night before we decided due to the rain that we would reschedule to the following weekend. When we showed up for our shoot Sarah was prepared with props and very good at giving direction. We are very happy with our photos and already have our 2nd shoot booked!!! “ - Brandon & Erin

“Sarah is an amazing photographer. We have used her for all our daughter's big events in her short 1 year life (maternity, newborn, family, photos and 1 year photos). Sarah has always been such a pleasure to work with, always answers her phone and makes me feel like I am talking to an old friend. The picture quality is AMAZING! We have the best photos of our little girl. All the photos are timeless works of art. I still marvel at all the photos we received. I recommend Sarah to all my friends and will continue to use her every year to capture the love and unique characters of our little family. if you are looking for a friendly, talented, patient, responsive photographer, look no further you have found her! “ - Ana & Scott


newborn photos with mom and dad

“Let me start of by saying that Sarah was absolutely AMAZING! She was so patient, calm, and took all the time she needed. Our baby was in the NICU so her pictures were done at 14 days old instead of the usual 5-9 days, & she did every thing she could to get me a froggie pose picture since it was one of my request. All the pictures came out so perfect, our family loved them, we received so many compliments from family & friends. My husband and I have been recommending to her to everyone! It was so worth the investment. “ - Eunice

“Sarah takes our family pictures every year. She takes beautiful photos and offers packages for a reasonable price that include a variety of poses. We have a two year old son and he is pretty wild, and she was still able to get a number of great shots for us to choose from. The whole process with Sarah is very easy and she outlines all the steps for you from picking a location, clothing, choosing from proofs, lab selection for printing, and more. I really can't say enough good things about her as she is truly talented and professional. We will continue to use her for our photos and I will recommend her to everyone! “ - Rita & HL
