Houston Baby Portraits by Sarah Borchgrevink
Preserving the beauty of new babies through the unique use of stunning colors, texture, cozy wrapping, natural posing and vintage styling.
Please note that all newborn sessions include the following. If you would like photos of just baby, however, there is no pressure to get in front of the camera. Each session is custom designed with your color preferences, props, and favorite poses in mind. I offer family, parent, and sibling images as a perk to newborn clients without any additional fees.
- Parent, sibling and family images
- Macro images (up close details of baby's features, toes, hair, profile, etc.)
- Rustic and vintage inspired floor props
- Naked bean bag posing
- Cozy wrapping styles
- Styling and Baby Stat Newborn Questionnaire
Newborn sessions currently take place when baby is preferably 5-8 days new, though appointments are available up to 30 days old for full term babies and 12 weeks old for premature babies who have spent time in the NICU. Even if your baby is already born, I still encourage you to inquire as I take newborn appointments 7 days/week between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM. There are session options for older newborns or babies.
Dreamy, timeless and rUSTIC in studio collections
Below you’ll find two galleries: one features a baby boy session and the other a sweet newborn girl. When booking a professional portrait session, it’s important you commission a photographer whose work creates a feeling of happiness for you. I encourage you to peruse the galleries to see if we’re a good fit for one another. During the posed newborn sessions cozy, unique wrapping is a cornerstone, however, I also offer darling naked bean bag posing, too.

SCHEDULING your newborn session | what to expect
To get the booking process started, visit the contact and inquiry page. Feel free to let me know your estimated due date or if baby is already earth side. To secure your newborn appointment, there is a $100 non-refundable retainer and portraiture contract required. Since babies arrive on their own schedule, you'll notify me once baby has made their grand entrance. You're given 3-4 dates to select from that take place in the first few weeks of life. My preference, however, is 5-8 days new for the absolute best sessions, but there are still many options and set ups available to babies up to 30 days new.
