Hello! My name is Sarah Botta and I am a Wedding and Portrait Photographer. The feel of a 4x6 image in my hands reliving captured memories is what lead to me falling in love with photography when I was only 6! It wasn’t until after I got married in 2013, I turned my love for photography into a business. My style is romantic, elegant, classic portraits full of beautiful light. When I’m not photographing anything you can find me enjoying a cup of coffee either from a local coffee shoppe or on the couch with my husband and daughter, exploring the great outdoors, swimming or skiing. I’m known for smiling a lot, being adventurous, enjoying and adapting to any situation. I adore working with adventurous, head-over-heels in love couples and can’t wait to tell your story.
On my blog I share my recent work, wedding planning tips, as well as stories from my latest travels and adventures.

In September I had a few 2017 Studio Christmas Mini Session inquiries. Man those clients were super on tops of things! At that time my mind was focused on fall sessions. I hadn’t ever thought about doing Studio Christmas Mini’s and I’m not even sure why. Once October came around and even more inquiries came in I knew that this year would be the first year I would offer them!
My inspiration for the Christmas Mini decor came from my love of windows! I wanted something rustic, gender neutral, and honestly something I would want to decorate my house with or have my non-existent kids photographed with. I went to the store and immediately found my inspiration windows. Then I found these beautiful little trees with maroon berries. I remember I had seen these trees in late August when they first put out Christmas decor. Luckily, since I waited so long, all Christmas decor was 50% off so it was my lucky day. I ended up getting so excited about all the Christmas decorations the store had to offer I created my setup in one of the aisles. Once it was perfect, I packed everything into an overflowing shopping cart and hit the register.
I booked several Studio Christmas Mini Sessions! I’m so happy that I got Christmas time in my brain and quickly pulled everything together. The setup was just the way I wanted it to be and I couldn’t have been happier with the results! Next year, I will be offering 2018 Studio Christmas Mini Sessions! Comment below and tell me what type of setup you’d like to see for next year.
