Sarah K Chen Photography Blog bio picture

Welcome to my Blog!

I'm a simple person who loves photographing people and spending time with my husband and two little girls, Ellie (4) and Emmeline (1). My girls are my world and every day I wonder how I became so blessed to be their Mama.

When I'm not behind the camera I love to knit and sew cute things for my girls and bake cookies. My husband likes to say I'm a granny at heart, but I like to say I'm a woman of many talents. ;)

I also enjoy snowboarding, traveling and immersing myself in books. One day I will conquer Cornice and get down without snowplowing my way. I dream of traveling to Greece, Italy and Paris one day, but I have yet to convince the husband that traveling abroad with two little ones would be aweome. I'd also love to go camping and show my girls the joys of a perfectly toasted marshmallow and walking barefoot through an icy cold creek bed. And although I said it would never happen, I now read most of my books on my iPhone or iPad instead of a book. Have kids and you'll soon realize the gift of a built in light and always having your book with you.

I'm based in Orange County, California and ocassionally travel for shoots.

I […]

The Chao Family at the Arboretum

I loved getting to spend time with this gorgeous family and had so much fun photographing them together. Little Emme has such an inquisitive mind, I was blown away by her thought processes and the way she absorbed her surroundings. In some ways she seems so grown up, but still so little in the way […]

LA Arboretum Engagement : Helen & Tom

It’s always so much fun when I get to hang out with these two and our engagement session at the LA Arboretum was definitely one full of laughs. Helen is sweet and even keeled while Tom is a silly prankster who likes to keep Helen on her toes. It was a blast photographing these two […]
