For This Child Program

As a newborn and maternity photographer, I have the privilege of working with so many glowing mothers and excited families welcoming their bundles of joy. These sessions reflect the pure bliss surrounding new life, but we need to acknowledge the unfortunate statistics.

1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage
1 in 8 women struggle with infertility
1 in 10 women suffer from Endometriosis or PCOS

I am apart of that 1 in 10 community so this topic is extremely near and dear to my heart. I have heard hundreds of women share their stories of trials and triumph along their journey and I completely understand just how hard these families have fought to get here, and just how special this sweet baby is.

While this phrase is rooted in religion, I feel as though ANY parent who has finally received their miracle can relate.

For this child, I have prayed.

For this child, I have sacrificed.

For this child, I have endured rounds of IVF.

For this child, we have been through many adoption attempts.

For this child, we have suffered a loss.

For this child, we have cried.

For this child, we have hoped for a miracle.

A well-known scripture. A popular phase seen and used by many when announcing their newest addition to the family! But there are so many other things that lay behind this phrase.

1 Samuel 1:27

“For this child, I have prayed and the Lord granted what I asked of him.”

Newborn Photography Charleston, SC

After capturing so many beautiful babies and their families throughout my career, one of my goals has always been finding a way to give back and raise awareness. This program is my way of doing so.

I've decided to gift one incredible family per month a For This Child Newborn Session.

This program will allow you the opportunity to share your unique story and hopefully inspire and encourage others who may be facing the same struggles that you have.

If you are selected to receive a free newborn session, your testimony will be shared along with photos from your session. 

• Up to a 90 minute newborn session for just baby
• 2 special setups styled by your photographer to commemorate your journey
• A $650 product credit to be applied to a print selection of your choosing
• The option to add on family and sibling portraits for a $150 fee

For This Child Sessions Include:

**Please note that submitting an application, does not guarantee a session.


Applicants should apply no later than the month prior to their due date.
Nominations from friends and family members are allowed.
Selections will be made at the discretion of Sayre Briele Photography LLC.
If you are selected, you will be contacted via email to set up your session.
As a courtesy to other local photographers and applicants, you must not have a newborn session booked with another photographer.

Our vision for this program is to impact the lives of those struggling with fertility issues by donating to families and providing resources to those who need them most.
