"She has taken both newborn and one year photos for me and it was the best investment ever!"
Amazing does not do justice in describing Sarah and her work. She is extremely talented, sweet and personable. She takes the stress and worry out of a photo session and is able to capture the perfect shots. She has taken both newborn and one year photos for me and it was the best investment ever! I appreciate her organization, effective and prompt communication and quick turn around time in delivering the final product. I have hired several other photographers in the past and although they take great photos they have fallen short in these areas with some taking months to just return digital files. I can't say it enough, I highly recommend Sarah!!!
“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 loves babies and loves 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 Allen
“Sarah is amazing!”
Sarah is amazing! She did our newborn session and my son's 1st birthday session and I cannot say enough about her. She makes the sessions so fun and exciting and easy. Her work is flawless and she is so flexible and professional. She helps you throughout the whole process from getting ready for the session to your final selection of the pictures. She is such a joy to work with and a true artist. I can't wait for many more photo sessions with her.

“First and foremost, her work is beautiful."
Sarah is absolutely amazing! First and foremost, her work is beautiful. I have used Sarah for my maternity photos, newborn photos, annual family portraits, lifestyle family portraits, fall family photography outdoors, nursing session, and a birthday images, and a 12 month milestone. I have always loved the product she delivers and cherish our photographs greatly. She is also incredibly easy to work with. She is professional and reliable. I feel like I have nothing to worry about because she handles it all! She makes me feel as ease, as well as my kids (and dog!), which is so important when trying to get your pictures taken. My husband has photos from multiple shoots framed in his office and one of his co-workers asked him the other day why we take so many professional pictures. When you have a talented photographer that is a pleasure to work with, its hard NOT to get professional pictures done for important family milestones. Sarah is a gem and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to document their family's most precious moments. You will certainly be in good hands.

“Amazing, sweet, very talented photographer!!!"
Amazing, sweet, very talented photographer!!! Sarah did our newborn photos and all I have to say is WOW!!! She was so sweet, patient, and professional. I felt very comfortable with her and she did amazing with my little one. She responds very fast to emails/calls which is amazing. Her new studio is gorgeous, it was wonderful to see. Her work is truly beautiful and she captures all the special moments we loved and I highly recommend her for newborn and family photos.

“I'm ecstatic with the results and look forward to having these captured moments displayed in my home."
We chose Sarah to do the newborn and sibling photos when we added our 5th child. Our children photographed were 7, 4, 2, and newborn. Our 2 year old decided she would not be cooperative during the session, but Sarah was extremely patient while we tried to get our toddler to participate. She was flexible during the whole session and because of that we ended up with beautiful sibling photos.
The newborn session was great. You could tell that Sarah was very experienced with newborns. I LOVED the rich jewel tones colors that Sarah chose for the session. I'm ecstatic with the results and look forward to having these captured moments displayed in my home.

"Sarah is a breeze to work with."
Sarah is a breeze to work with. She was extremely accommodating and her product is beautiful. We really enjoyed working with someone who is passionate about her craft. My daughter was one of her first newborns to be photographed and her work at the time was excellent. My son was photographed for his newborn shoot two years later and Sarah's work had noticeably improved even more. I also recommended her to family members for their babies. Get with Sarah if you want a smooth shoot, consistent product and speedy turnaround.
— Natalie Camarata
“Sarah has photographed our family 7 times in the last 10 months."
We LOVE Sarah! She is phenomenal to work with, so amazing with kids AND our entire extended family! Even at times when I am stressed to the max trying to get our twins to cooperate, Sarah always keeps her cool and gets beautiful shots of our girls. We love Sarah’s style, and her laid back sessions translate into breathtaking digital memories that we will have forever. I cannot say enough positive things about Sarah, we look forward to having Sarah document our family’s milestones for years to come. She is the BEST!
— Lindsey Woodard
“Sarah made the entire process so easy and enjoyable."
Sarah made the entire process so easy and enjoyable. From inquiring information to getting our pictures, we couldn't have asked for a better photographer to work with. Sarah is definitely an expert at what she does, but what made the experience better was how she made us feel. When watching Sarah work, you can see that she truly enjoys doing what she does. You can also see that she is trained and knows how to handle your newborn. My husband and I felt at ease the entire time. Sarah also gave us all the information we needed before the shoot in order for us to prepare for the shoot itself. She is quick to respond and very easy to communicate with. We are so happy Sarah was recommended when we were searching for a newborn photographer. We're joyed with knowing we have beautiful pictures to put up on our wall. Thank you so much, Sarah!
— Tina Nguyen
“She is such an amazing person as well."
Wow!! I am so glad I found Sarah, she not only captured the most amazing photographs of our sweet baby, but she is such an amazing person as well. She made sure we all felt comfortable with everything that was going on, which is nice. As a new mommy, you don't really want to be passing your brand new baby to someone else, but I felt completely comfortable having Sarah handle and pose my little. She also took the time to get to know us and by the end of our session, it felt like we were all long time friends! If you're looking for a phenomenal newborn photographer here in Cypress, definitely check Sarah out!
— Meghan Briggs
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
“She was extremely patient during our newborn session."
Sarah is amazing as a photographer and as a person! She really makes you feel comfortable before and during your session. She even created a Pinterest board for our session so I could have an idea of how to dress/what to expect. She was extremely patient during our newborn session even though our little one was a nap fighting champion!! She never made us feel rushed and worked so wonderfully with our sweet baby! We also had our maternity and family photo session with her and can't say enough great things about her. She is very talented and we cannot wait to get all of our photos printed and displayed in our house!! Thank you for being awesome at what you do and for capturing these special moments in our lives

“She did both my maternity and newborn shoots. I felt like I knew her before we ever met...she was great at finding a time, location and setup that worked for us both!"
She's amazing! She did both my maternity and newborn shoots. I felt like I knew her before we ever met...she was great at finding a time, location and setup that worked for us both! We bounced ideas back and forth to make sure all my expectations were met. I loved the maternity photos and can't wait to see the newborn photos. I would recommend Sarah for anyone looking for a fun professional spin on any photo shoot. Her warm personality and sound direction are guaranteed to result in pictures you are proud of.
- Jessica Zapata
“She's not like other photographers who make all the decisions and treat you like the help."
Sarah is amazing! I found her through Facebook and before we even had our daughter, I knew I wanted her as our newborn photographer! I just love her work--her attention to detail is what sold me. She gets all those precious newborn close ups of the eyelashes all the way to the toes. She's very easy to work with, super nice and professional. I also like that she works WITH you on what you want and receives input very easily. She's not like other photographers who make all the decisions and treat you like the help. We loved her so much we bought the first year package and can't wait to work with her on our baby's sitter session and one-year cake smash!
— Tracy Guara
"Sarah was so gentle in her beautiful and creative wrapping!"
We found Sarah here on Google and are SO grateful we did! She captured our baby girl at 6 days old and we will cherish those photos forever! Sarah is not only professional, but, more importantly with your new little one, she is patient, kind, and loving. She treated our baby like her own to keep her feeling calm and comfy during the entire photo shoot. Sarah was so gentle in her beautiful and creative wrapping! Thank you Sarah for our beautiful photos! You are completely in your element with these sweet babes and doing exactly what you were created to do!
"I live in Cypress, Texas and started my search for the best newborn/child photographer in the area."
I live in Cypress, Texas and started my search for the best newborn/child photographer in the area. I came across Sarah's work and immediately fell in love. From my first contact with her up until I received my photos- she was extremely professional and organized.
When the kids and I arrived at her studio (which was extremely nice btw) she had a written plan for our session. I could also tell how passionate she was about her work. She talked about the adorable newborn wraps she'd be doing and took the time to explain things because she saw I was interested. She mentioned she keeps up with her classes, but upon walking in I could tell Sarah was a pro.
She made sure my infant and my toddler were perfectly comfortable the entire session. I also throughly enjoyed hanging out with her. It can me hard being new mom and it was nice getting out. She made it fun. Before we left, Sarah let me decide if I wanted her to share photos on social media and when I said yes she told me the dates I'd receive our photos via a link on email and sneak peek on Instagram and Facebook. Again, it was refreshing to meet another Mama with awesome organizational skills and passion for what they do.
I was blown away by our photos when I received them!!!!!! As my Aunt said, "she is a true artist." I will treasure my son's infant photos and our sibling photos forever. I told her she completely outdid herself. She seriously has a gift and I'm incredibly thankful to have worked with her. I would recommend Sarah Borchgrevink Photography over and over again. She is the best newborn/child photographer around
“Sarah made the entire process of photographing my son an absolute dream."
Sarah made the entire process of photographing my son an absolute dream. She understood my vision of what I wanted everything to look like, she worked with me on picking out colors and coordinating clothes, and she even pinpointed a perfect location. During the shoot, Sarah got my son involved in the entire process and talked with him, played with him, and encouraged him the entire time. This was not just a normal posed photography session- this was Sarah capturing my son in a candid manner that truly allowed him to shine through. She was versatile, creative, and really in tune with my son when he was ready to just get up and run rather than sit still. Once we were done, my photos were ready for viewing within a handful of days, and my final edited shots were mailed out shortly thereafter. I am beyond thrilled with the outcome of the photos and I will definitely be seeking out Sarah in the future for all of my family's photos.

"Immediately I feel in love & knew it would be an investment well spent."
We found Sarah by searching through Instagram. Immediately I feel in love & knew it would be an investment well spent. As soon as we showed up she made us feel at home & her set up was so personal & professional. She was so welcoming & got to know us which meant a lot. I have never seen anyone handle a baby like she did. We kept giggling b/c we were in awe over her & our baby! If only we could put Sarah in our pocket and carry her around with us at all times it would help the first time parents out quite a bit lol! Our prints turned out amazing, she got them to us sooner than expected & overall the experience was phenomenal. HIGHLY recommend.
"The family photography session we recently took part in with Sarah Borchgrevink Photography was truly remarkable."
What started off as a simple referral from close family friends, turned out to be an experience that our young family will not soon forget. The family photography session we recently took part in with Sarah Borchgrevink Photography was truly remarkable. From the early stages of booking and selecting our prospective backdrops to the actual day of our session, Sarah was very professional and extremely helpful throughout the entire process. We felt very confident during our session and with the direction of Mrs. Borchgrevink , several fantastic photos were captured, which with a son nearing his first birthday and sometimes timid around strangers, was extremely important for us. She did a marvelous job and we are extremely happy with our family portraits. Thank you Sarah for helping capture and preserve a milestone in our young family’s lives. We will cherish them for years to come.
-Deb and Nick Nieto
"Highly recommend Sarah!"
I recently worked with Sarah for our son's 6 month photos in studio. We were debating whether or not to do 6 month photos at all but after seeing the pictures we are so glad we did! Sarah is wonderful to work with. She has a great eye and captured so many wonderful moments of our family that it is nearly impossible to choose which photos will make it onto the wall! Highly recommend Sarah
"Sarah is a true professional in the art of newborn photography."
Sarah is a true professional in the art of newborn photography. When you book your session with her she will give her time to making your experience a satisfying one. You will be able to tell that it's more than just work for her because she really enjoys what she does. She's also very quick to replying back to any questions you may have, and that is hard to find. Honestly, that is one of the reasons I chose Sarah. My wife was getting close to deliver and after asking a handful of newborn photographers that I narrowed down on, she was the only one that was quick to answer all my questions. Now that is commitment to satisfy anyone who are interested in her work. I'm glad I chose Sarah for she has given me images of my baby that are both timeless and beautiful.
"She greatly exceeded our expectations and provided us with high quality photos we will cherish forever!"
I highly recommend Sarah for a posed newborn session! She greatly exceeded our expectations and provided us with high quality photos we will cherish forever!
Sarah made the whole experience so easy for us. She responded to emails quickly and helped guide us through her pricing chart so we could find the best option for our family.
When I booked the session for my twin girls, she was very flexible knowing that they would likely be born early. When I let her know of their birth a month earlier than expected, she was able to work them in to her schedule.
Sarah was prepared for having two girls and got an assistant so both girls were handled safely throughout the entire session. She ensured that we would have ample time for the session so we could have both individual shots and shots of the girls together. She talked me through the session so I was comfortable with each pose and took into consideration my preferences. She made sure each wrap and prop fit were items I liked, and had done her preparations prior to my session so she did not need to waste our session time pulling items for the girls. Because the girls were preemies and small, Sarah ensured they were handled with extra care and used props that were safe for their size.
While I was so impressed with her skill, knowledge, and gentle handling of my daughter, the final products she provided are what truly made it all worth it. Each and every picture is beautiful and showcases my girls perfectly. It is obvious she put time and attention to every detai.
I could not imagine anyone doing a better job of capturing the precious memory of our sweet newborns.
"The softness that is captured, the sun light on my kids, and the little details that make your kids your kids -- Sarah captures that."
My kids ages: 4.5, 2, and 9 months.
Why did I decide to use an expensive photographer and skip over 1. My own cameras and 2. my phone?? I wanted to be in the photos. My oldest is at that turning point where she is loosing that baby/toddler look and I see "big kid" more and more. I needed to freeze this time with her. I wanted to capture her personality and those silly smiles. Also, these are photos I am going to hang on my walls! My mom still has photos from when I was little on hers, so when I look at it like that, it is how Sarah says, this is an investment.
I knew when I got my photos back I hadn't made a mistake. Y'all you gotta do this so you can gasp at the beauty of your children when you sit down and look at photos of them. The softness that is captured, the sun light on my kids, and the little details that make your kids your kids -- Sarah captures that. Those small details made it all worth it.
Our initial day to shoot the temps dropped to upper 40s!! I was so amped to take the photos the cold didn't bother me, but my kids it did. So we came back out when our schedules matched up.
Also, she was more than accommodating when the couches I ordered had to be dropped off the day before and picked up the day after the shoot. She saved my vision I had for my photographs!
The thing that played a big factor is the copy right release Sarah provides with the photographs she takes.
As someone who bills by the hour and everything I create/draft/prepare I know belongs to the person who has paid me for my time. So I can't grasp the concept that a photographer thinks they own my photos after I have paid them for their time and talent.
Getting a hold of Sarah was VERY easy. She responded almost immediately, and always within a couple of hours. Her dedication to her company and clients is evident from the moment you reach out to her. As a person who lives in a world of extensions (and also currently remodeling my home which apparently has no deadline), it was refreshing for deal with a person who actually stuck to their due dates.
Because Sarah also has her own children, and is in the throws of dealing with a spirited 2 year old (in addition to a baby), she has the patience and cool calmed reserve to orchestrate a photo shoot with a baby and toddler.
I will use her services again, and I highly recommend you make the wise decision to use her as well.
