Your Bundle of Joy is Earthside.
Natural, Rustic, Dreamy, and Timeless Newborn Baby Photography by Sarah Borchgrevink.
What makes the wrapped session special?
The 'wrapped newborn' package is a fantastic option because it personifies the heart of motherhood: Baby placed in your arms, indeed a perfected bundle of joy.
Wrapped sessions are genuinely breathtaking, cozy, and exceptional because the images are unique. Crafted through customized styling reflecting rustic, dreamy, and timeless branding, the wrapped newborn package is a relaxed, laid back experience for new parents as Baby is soothed by the wrapping.
Wrapped images provide flexibility for babies who have missed the traditional 14-day window for posed portraits. This package is also ideal for infants who spent time in the NICU and is available up to 13 weeks old for cherubs who entered the world earlier than expected.
Parents deserve beautiful portraits, and the studio welcomes older newborns for the coziest and sweetest of sessions.
Why Do Babies Enjoy being swaddled?
Newly arrived babies enjoy being wrapped because this mimics swaddling, which is a soothing technique used to provide comfort to Baby through warmth and security.
Moreover, my ninja newborn wrapping skills help calm your sweet cherub because this keeps Baby from being disturbed by their own startle reflex.
The result is a relaxed bundle of joy, which feels as if they’re back in the womb. Babies spend 9 months growing in a tight, dark space in 98.6-degree temperatures. Parents often marvel at how well the apple of their eye sleeps while in my studio.
what three wrapping styles can you expect?
Here is a sample gallery of what you may expect during a wrapped newborn session. 4 week old Theo visited for a session featuring grey, teal, green, cream, and yellow accents for his appointment.
Wrapped newborn sessions feature three styles of wrapping, macro images, and a forward facing floor prop, such as Baby in a Bucket. Macro images, moreover, are the special and sweet details that are completely unique and specific to Baby. You spent nine months dreaming of their characteristics; macro photography is a cornerstone to all newborn appointments. Potato sack, tootsie, and cradle are the main styles, though sometimes I tweak them to provide more variety should I have an extra sleepy baby visiting.
Inspired by color, texture, and vintage props
Mia visited my studio when she was just over five weeks old; this option is perfect for older babies who missed the traditional two week scheduling period.
Her session features a vintage-inspired miniature custom-made bed, circular oak basket, blush pink distress farmhouse bucket, and gorgeous macro images, which are the up-close details of toes, hands, lips, profile, etc. You'll find a unique color scheme featuring green, turquoise, aqua, neutrals, and of course pink to make Mom super happy.
STYLING questionnaire reflects your color preferences
This precious baby girl visited the studio when she was just over a week old. The wrapped newborn session is also an excellent option for parents who like the cozy look of this styling; it is not just for older newborns.
Her parents requested all things girly such as pink, white, ivory, cream, and natural props, such as a woven basket. Mom, however, is a Texas A&M Aggie and so the maroon represents her school pride while accenting the white. Macro images, as always, play a large part in the gallery, which are the up-close details of Baby’s features such as lips, fingers, toes, profile, eyelashes, and more.
Pricing details about the wrapped newborn package:
Wrapped Newborn | $550 + tax includes 4-5 customized setups for Baby, macro photography and three unique and cozy styles of beautiful newborn wrapping are showcased along with 90 minutes of coverage. Your favorite 20 images (+black/white edits) and a $200 professional print credit are yours to treasure. Baby is wrapped the entire session. Family, sibling, and parent images may be added for an additional fee. Available to babies up to 60 days new.
Each Appointment Includes the Following:
(1) Tootsie wrap
Ten sweet toes are displayed during this style of newborn baby wrapping. This is also a great wrap to include macro images of your little one, which are those adorable, tiny details such as their perfect little toes!
(2) Potato sack pose
The second style of wrapping you may expect in your baby's session is potato sack, which is utterly adorable as it displays baby as the perfect round little ball. Babies love being wrapped, and they look so cozy!
(3) Cradle wrap
This style mimics the way a newborn would be placed in a cradle, hence the name. Baby’s arms are out, though their arms may also be tucked in. Usually, I take cues from Baby and see how sleepy they are. Styling sessions with vibrant and rich tones is such a joy as they’re truly unique. However, neutrals are very popular and trendy right now, too.
BABY IN A FLOOR PROP | FORWARD FACING POSE
Aside from the three wrapping styles, shown above, the ‘wrapped newborn session’ also includes the forward-facing pose of Baby in one of the many types of floor props you’ll find in the studio. Examples include natural baskets, galvanized buckets, pails, antique crates, and more. My love of vintage is always apparent.
Buckets, bowls, crates, and more | floor props
You will see a different style of wrapping in each floor prop. If there is a specific floor prop you've seen in my portfolio, you're welcome to request an item. You will receive a detailed styling questionnaire in which we'll chat about your favorite colors, props, and even accessories you'd like to see in your baby's session, such as headbands or adorable bonnets showcasing their precious, chubby cheeks!
image selections | Private Proofing Gallery
Two weeks after your appointment, you receive an online and password-protected private proofing gallery in which all the perfect images are showcased.
The gallery shares how to select the pictures you would like. Your package includes your favorite 20 full-resolution, non-watermarked portraits, along with matching black and white edits of those selections. At that time, you have the opportunity to add additional images to your package, though there is no obligation to do so.
You will download your images via the gallery. A print release, list of consumer-grade labs, and cloud storage ideas are also included. You may print your copies as large as you wish as many times as you want.

“I did the wrapped newborn session with Sarah and would highly recommend her as a photographer. When I was an expectant mom and first reached out to her she was very prompt, friendly, and wanted to make sure she answered any questions I had. Then once baby arrived we scheduled a date for the photo session. She made the whole process so easy and stress free, which is a lifesaver for an expectant / new mom. Sarah even provided a guide on how to prep baby for photo day and it really worked, my little one slept through the whole session and the photos came out absolutely gorgeous! Sarah definitely seems like she has a passion for what she does and is very good at it!” -Allison
“Sarah is an absolute gem! Her photos have a very distinctive style that sets them apart. The pictures are so wonderfully tranquil and whimsical they almost can't be real! But just wait until you see her in person weaving her magic. What you're getting here is not just an photographer, but an incredibly caring mom of 4 who understands how precious your baby is to you and knows exactly how to care for and pose a newborn. She is a certified baby magician. Seriously! You won't be disappointed spending your time and money with her! Sarah thanks so much for capturing this special time for me and my family and we hope to see you again in the future for more precious moments!”
