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.

Ellie’s First Birthday Bash

All summer long, friends and family members were asking me if I had started planning Ellie’s first birthday yet. In Korean culture, this first birthday is quite an extravaganza which we call a Dohl and calls for much planning. Planning which I had no time for. So my answer was always a guilt laden, no, […]

Earth, Wind and Fire. Leading one of the Photog Shootout groups last night was a blast. I got to see old friends, meet a bunch of new ones and come home with some amazing images and inspiration from none other than Joe Photo. The theme for my group was earth, wind and fire. The fire […]

SoCal Photog Shootout – Oct 13 in San Clemente, CA

When Hanssie from Photog Shootout asked me lead a group at the next SoCal Photog Shootout, I was over the moon excited (and a bit nervous too)! I get so many emails from people asking for tips, mentoring sessions, help, advice, etc. I try my best to answer them all, but when I’m super busy […]

My email has been acting up for a little while now so I finally had Jeff call my hosting company and apparently, they already know about the issue as it’s their outgoing message before you even get to speak to a live person. So, my apologies if you haven’t heard from me. I seem to […]
