Portrait Studio Dedicated to Authentically Preserving Baby as Fine Art
Dreamy, Timeless & Vintage Inspired Infant Photography
Welcome to my studio! I am excited to see you’ve stopped by to take a tour and see more information. Located in lovely Houston TX, my studio caters to posed newborn photography. You’ll find everything you need for gorgeous baby photographs! From swoon worthy textiles, organic wraps, handmade bonnet and bows, ethereal lighting and vintage inspired props, it’s all here – just for you! Again, welcome!
You may also be interested in reading about newborn session styling, my three favorite ways to wrap babies or favorite poses. Macro images of baby's tiny features are also a huge favorite of mine and are part of each gallery I photograph. In addition to posed newborn photography, baby milestone sessions are available, too. Family, sibling and parent images are a wonderful addition to your gallery. If you're a baby plan membership client or a parent booking baby milestone photography, you may like seeing the type of client closet I have on hand for you to use.
Newborn sessions currently take place when baby is preferably 5-9 days new, though appointments are available up to 40 days old for specific packages 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.
The Wood Wall & Ethereal Light
This custom designed real wood wall was created for me by my husband, Kevin. He is my biggest supporter! He spent about 50 hours on this project, from purchasing the wood, sanding, curating the stains for the wood, and also assembling. He even used a blow torch and many other tools to create texture and interesting characteristics about the wall. It is 8'x10' and a complete show stopper! This will be used for family photos and prop shots such as when the baby is nestled into a bucket, bowl, crate, or other floor item.
Below you’ll see samples of the type of floor props you may expect in my studio along with the styling. The handsome fella below is Jack, my son, and these were taken when he was three days old. You’ll find rustic, antique props of the wooden variety such as a trench bowl, crate, galvanized bucket, and hand-crafted bed. Photographing my little boy was an absolute joy and I hope to work with you, too!
Classic Back-Lit Family Images
At Sarah Borchgrevink Photography, there are two backdrop options for family, parent, or sibling set ups during your newborn session. The first is fresh, clean, and classic: the all white back-lit images which showcase stunning ethereal lighting. These are the quintessential timeless look that forever be classic and never dated.
The Rustic Wood Wall For Family, Sibling, Or Parent Images
The custom wood wall also makes for a gorgeous backdrop during your family, sibling, and parent set ups. Parents are welcome to use both options, such as back-lit or the wood wall, during our time together in studio. The custom wood wall is an excellent choice if your home is decorated in the farmhouse vibe or perhaps neutral tones, too! This will ensure your images look perfect as they grace the walls in your home and act as an archival art piece.
VINTAGE MEETS CLASSIC for Timeless Results
Vintage pieces and custom styling to preserve this incredibly special newborn time. I provide organic, handmade textiles such as wraps, headbands, posing backdrops, fabrics and wood floors. In my spare time, I adore visiting antique shops so I may search for classic floor props such as buckets, bowls, wooden boxes and anything that strikes my fancy. I also have a plethora of precious bonnets that showcase your baby's chubby cheeks and beautiful face. I use professional lighting and top of the line professional camera gear, as well as post production processing, to capture everything good and beautiful about your sweet baby.
Classic, rustic and organic newborn floor props you'll find in studio
Inside my studio you'll find a large variety of floor props that are inspired by all things classic, rustic and organic. These timeless pieces are the perfect accent to your newborn session. Examples include distressed harvest buckets, wooden crates, natural woven baskets, classic wire rimmed basket, custom made newborn photography beds, galvanized buckets, vintage picnic basket, plus more! All of these are available to you. After booking, you're given a styling questionnaire in which we discuss your color and prop preferences so if there's a prop that makes you swoon, be sure to let me know so I may style it for your session.
Gorgeous Wraps and Textiles
Chunky knit layers in a variety of colors such as earth tones, vibrant color schemes, or classic boy/girl combinations are readily available to you. I also have a large stash of organic and light hand-dyed cheesecloth wraps in the most lovely of colors! Other options you'll find are precious newborn sized pillows and blankets made from antique quilts.
There is a matching backdrop for each and every wrap you see below.
Dainty Tie Backs & Delicate Pieces | Hand Made Props
I love to style your baby with the most lovely and feminine props such as tiebacks, floral crowns, halos and bows. There is always a matching wrap, prop and textile to compliment these pieces, too. I use trusted vendors to bring my vision to life. All of the items are handmade and support small businesses all around the world. Here are a few samples of the types of newborn baby girl accessories I have on hand. I have hundreds from which we may select during styling.
Adorable Bonnets and Hats
I have these in each color you may imagine, so there is always a matching option for your little one's set up. They're made to fit babies of any size and I love using these because they showcase the stunning features of a newborn baby's face. Their chubby cheeks, bee stung lips and tufts of hair look absolutely precious framed by a darling hat.
