Introducing the all white, organic lifestyle room catering to family, maternity, and baby portraiture.
Houston Family, Lifestyle Newborn, Maternity, and Infant Studio Photography
As of June 2019, Sarah Borchgrevink Photography has relocated to a new studio and office centrally located in Houston inside the 610 loop. Part of the new studio is revamping packages such as maternity, babies and infants, and family portraiture. The all white, organic lifestyle room is designed to be perfectly timeless, classic, and clean. By removing distracting backdrops and props your gallery will forever stand the test of time.
What session types does Sarah offer?
Sarah offers lifestyle newborn, family, maternity, and baby milestone portraits in the all white lifestyle room. Moreover, the family and sibling portion of all newborn sessions will take place in this dreamy, gorgeous, and stunning room designed to have breathtaking natural light. Lifestyle newborn/family combinations are also a new addition to the pricing guide.
Now Offering Lifestyle Newborn/Family Option
A studio family lifestyle session is also ideal for parents who love the images of Mom with Newborn, Dad with Newborn, Sibling with Newborn, and Family with the Newest Bundle of Joy, but perhaps do not like all of the props or the look of a posed newborn session. If a natural session with minimum props with your new baby is your preference, consider a lifestyle-inspired family session in which family and parents are the focus. If Baby in a bucket does not make your heart sing these natural and minimalist portraits are a wonderful option for you.
When is the ideal time to book your appointment?
The best time to book a maternity or lifestyle newborn session is when you’re in the second trimester, typically close to 20 weeks. Pregnancy portraits often take place when your Baby Bump is around 31- 36 weeks pregnant. This ensures you have an adorable bump to photograph, though you may also be interested in hanging your images in the nursery before Baby is born. This gives you time to do so, though also have the images at your baby shower if this is your wish.
Moreover, the 31-36 mark ensures you feel comfortable and are able to move easily. Sometimes babies arrive early, too, so it is wonderful to photograph your pregnancy by this point.
If, however, you’re interested in booking an infant or family session it is best to book about 3-4 weeks in advance.
What type of images can you expect?
The type of images you can expect are timeless, clean, classic, and ethereal lighting. These images, moreover, a wonderful fit for parents who perhaps would like the majority of the session to be focused on family instead of a typical posed newborn session with the types of props and setups you see on the posed newborn package information page. See if the lifestyle Houston newborn photography is a good fit for you!
When do appointments take place?
Appointments take place in Sarah’s Houston Photography Portrait Studio 6 days per week between the following hours. 6 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 6 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Saturdays.
Pros of booking a studio session:
While outdoor and natural light maternity and family sessions begin at sunrise and sunset, studio sessions take place during hours of the day that are optimal for younger children. For instance, the sun rises and sets at different times throughout the year. In the summer months, for instance, we do not begin outdoor sessions til almost 8:00 p.m. as this is when the light is soft and flattering. Young children such as toddlers and infants are usually not in the best spirits in the evening. Scheduling around your children’s’ nap time is a fantastic way to ensure a successful session.
The studio is also fully air conditioned which is wonderful as Houston is known for muggy and warm weather. We also do not have to worry about critters such as snakes and bugs or those pesky mosquitoes.
The commercial studio space is also spacious at 1,300 square-feet, located near many hair and makeup salons, and also has full time security and ample parking. This helps make travel easier and streamlined. If you are interested, however, in the outdoor and on location portraiture services Sarah offers, please visit the following pages: Outdoor Family Photography and Houston Pregnancy Portraits.
