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 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 […]

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 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 Fong Family

I had such an overwhelming response to my mini sessions that I ended up opening up a third date, mostly for my friends who wanted me to photograph their families. I love that those near and dear to me value me,  work that I do, and the art I create. It really means so much […]

I also really love being able to capture the love between parents and child. There’s just something so special and […]

Orange County Family Photography : The Machikawa’s

I adore photographing new families. I love seeing parents’ eyes light up at their little ones and witnessing how inquisitive babies are over new surroundings. Babies grow and learn so quickly that I’ve already forgotten what it’s like to have a baby who puts everything in her mouth. Or a baby who can’t yet walk, […]

Orange County Family Session : Tracy & Ryan

Tracy is one of my dearest friends. We’ve known each other for nearly 10 years now and share so many awesome stories. We’ve traveled to Tahoe, Vegas, and SF together. We shared a personal trainer at Boxing Works in Hermosa Beach that we called “Hot Trainer Joe” when he wasn’t around. We’ve worked together, we’ve […]
