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 Phatiphong Family

Jenn and I followed each other on Instagram and knew of each other through mutual friends for years before we finally met in person. We met at a park in Pasadena and while I was kid free that day, Charlie was with Jenn and after spending some time playing and chatting with them I remember […]

The Glonchak Family

One of the greatest parts of my job is being a part of peoples lives when big things happen. I get to photograph their engagements, the day they begin their new lives as husband and wife, and their future babies and families. I love seeing my couples come back as Moms and Dads and getting […]

The Hong Family

My beautiful friend Katherine and her perfect little family! There’s so much I can say about the Hong family…like how my dear friend has the most amazing Australian accent ever.  This is slightly embarrassing, but I end up thinking all my thoughts with an Aussie accent for a couple of days whenever I spend any […]

The Chun Family

Jeanette is one of those women who is so beautiful inside and out. She has such a warm personality and an ease about her that really makes you want to be her bff. She is such an amazing woman strong, yet gentle and graceful and oh so real. The first time I met Sung was […]

The Chien Family

I met Jenny and Andy about 6-7 years ago on a snowboarding trip to Mammoth. It had been a while since I’d been snowboarding and I was really excited to hit the mountain the next morning with a bunch of old and new friends. It wasn’t until the next morning that I found out that […]

Halloween 2013 : La Catrina & Max

Our Dia de los Muertos costumes this year. I originally wanted to make Emmeline a Nacho Libre costume, but hubs vetoed it. In the end, I made her a Max from Where the Wild Things Are costume because it fit her crazy personality.  I even taught her to say, “I’ll eat you up!”

The Pham Family

There’s something about big families that I am completely drawn to. They’re part chaos and crazy and yet, there’s so much love, laughter and selflessness that makes it so beautiful. I have so much respect for Christine and Anthony who are amazing parents to their three little ones: Audra, Atticus and baby Josephine!

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 […]

The Yee Sisters : Mini Session

Connie and her sister Linda both booked separate mini sessions with me, but I scheduled them back to back so that we could get a couple shots of both of their families together. I really love and admire the relationship these two families share. The ease, the humor, how giving everyone is with each other […]
