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.

Ava Joy 1 Year Cake Smash at Sarah Botta Photography Studio
It’s hard to believe that little Ava Joy is now 1 year old! I first met her during the blizzard of 2016 when she was just 6 days old. I’m in awe how fast 2016 flew by! I’ve gotten to see and photograph little Ava several times in her first year. Looking back at her newborn photos, I can barely believe how fast this past year has gone by. She’s got a head full of curly hair and such a sweet smile. Ava Joy is the perfect name for her because she is such a joy! She’s always so smiley, happy, and such a joy to photograph. She’s beautiful and looks just like her Momma.
I had an absolute blast photographing sweet little Ava Joy’s cake smash session. Her mom did a great job getting all the fun props for the session and helped be decorate before the session. Everything looked beautiful and very well though out. I loved the setup and thought everything looked perfect! Watching Ava eat her cake made me giggle. My favorite image of her is when she’s enjoying her cake with her foot on top of her cake! Some days you’ve got to have your cake and eat it too, haha.
