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.

My loves

I met Christine when she did a mentoring session with me a couple years ago and was immediately drawn to her. She has this ease about her that is both captivating and inspiring. Where does it come from? I still can’t quite put it into words, but she’s like an old soul with a warm […]

Beach Day

I first met the Hoang family when they booked me for their son’s first birthday and then later for a family portrait session. We live close by so we carpooled to the family session location and on the drive down fell into easy conversation. I know how stressful the day of a shoot can be, […]

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!”

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 […]
