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.

The Oh Family

You know what amazed me about the Oh’s family session? Even with three young children, every frame I shot of this family was a keeper. I shot one roll of 220 film and all 32 frames made it into their gallery. It probably helps when Dad is also a photographer and Mom is one of […]

The Louey Family

Tina and Kenny very recently became a family of three (or five if you count their fur babies)! I was so excited to meet baby Sophia, she is such a beautiful little baby and kindly snoozed through our entire 30 minute mini session. It’s funny how quickly you forget how teeny newborn babies are. I […]

Laguna Beach Engagement: Chelsea and Isaac

Referrals from previous clients are always the best. Even if I don’t get to meet them before the shoot, I just know they’ll be super sweet and great to work with. That’s exactly what I got when I met up with Chelsea and Isaac (and their pup!) for their engagement session. What I didn’t expect […]

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 […]

Christine & Daryn Tie the Knot

Christine and Daryn are referrals from a few of my past wedding and portrait clients so I knew they’d both be an absolute dream to work with. Their wedding was one filled with beautiful details, lots of laughter, and so many sweet moments. I really enjoyed photographing their day and love film I received back […]

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 […]
