Centrally located inside the 610 loop, Sarah Borchgrevink Photography offers three popular portrait memberships showcasing dynamic milestones such as pregnancy, newly arrived cherub, and infant milestone portraits.

What is a portrait membership?

As a full-time photographer, 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.

  • 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. Not only do you receive a discount for booking multiple sessions, but you also receive a treasured heirloom album as a gift from me. The album is designed at the end of your membership.

Memberships also ensure 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! In addition to these perks, you also receive

Maternity Details:

Motherhood wardrobe is provided for client use. There are several gowns available featuring sizes small to extra large. Colors also include pastels, jewel tones, and even neutrals. The best time to photograph your baby bump is when you’re around 32 - 36 weeks along. Pregnancy portraits 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. Studio appointments look best in the early afternoon, such as 1:00 p.m. 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. See more details here about studio maternity sessions and also outdoor pregnancy portraits to see which look you like best.

Newborn Details:

Newborn sessions take place in Sarah’s studio 7 days per week between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., M-F, and also 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sundays. Newborn sessions are best photographed in the first 14 days of life, though Sarah happily offers extended scheduling for little ones who spent time in the NICU or perhaps missed the traditional window of newborn time. Sessions can be modified to fit the baby’s age. Nevertheless, newborn sessions are best photographed as early as possible. 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 stocked and ready to create the best newborn images in Houston.

Sit back, just bring Baby and their diaper bag, enjoy a book, watch Netflix, and snack away (all snacks and drinks provided!) while I skillfully pose your little one and create a great experience!

Baby Milestone Photography for Little Sitter and 12 Months

Baby milestone sessions showcase the new milestones your little one is hitting, such as standing up, crawling, clapping their hands, and simply being charming! Read more information about Houston Infant Baby Portraits.

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 professionally edited image. 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. Expect for us to capture the spirit of your little one! Each child is adorable, captivating, sweet, often energetic and fearless. During our time together, we will play while allowing the apple of your eye to be who they are. Sessions are very laid back. I, myself, have four young children (The Tiny Tribe of Wild Women and Chief Jack) and can confirm little ones simply want to connect and feel special.
