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.

Baby Jalen

This gorgeous little girl commands your attention and keeps you on your toes. I love that I was able to document a full spectrum of emotions with baby Jalen. It’s so true to life. Moms will understand this, but can’t you just hear that newborn wail in some of the images? It’s such a distinct […]

Baby Ruby : Orange County Newborn Session

One of the sweetest and most beautiful newborns I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. Ruby so slept contentedly in her parents’ arms and was the perfect little model for me. I was surprised at how often she smiled at just a week old, but not surprised that it was often at the sound of […]

Lauren’s First Birthday

I feel so blessed to have been asked to document Lauren’s very first birthday celebration. It seems like only yesterday when Katherine was pregnant and wishing for a sweet baby girl with lots of rolls and soft, squishy cheeks to kiss. And then Lauren came along and completed Katherine and Stephen’s beautiful family. For the […]

Orange County Family Session: Gia, Matt & Baby Audrie

You may recognize Gia and Matt as I shot their wedding three years ago at Greystone Mansion. They recently welcomed a gorgeous little baby girl into their family and came down from San Francisco to have me photograph them all together. It was so great catching up with these two and seeing the warm love […]

Orange County Family : The McElroy Family

My sister in law and her family came to visit recently and I couldn’t resist shooting a quick little session for them and their adorable twin girls. My nieces are growing up so quickly! I remember how teeny tiny they were as babies and now they’re toddling all over the place and getting into mischief […]

Fong Family – Orange County Family Portraits

Amy had been following my work when we by chance, ran into each other at Pretend City about two years ago. We hit it off and kept in contact through the year – even hitting up Disneyland with our older girls before I had Emmeline. It was an honor photographing Amy and her family, even […]

Mommy and Me : Emmeline

Emmeline’s first birthday is fast approaching and it’s making me wonder where the last year went. I’m happy that I had the time to really enjoy and revel in her babyness, but I am going to be so sad to see her chubby rolls go. I’m incredibly thankful to have talented photographer friends like Connie […]
