I got so lucky photographing this gorgeous family at Cabell’s Mill! My photographer friend Erin referred their session to me. I didn’t even realize I had already met them in October of 2016! When I arrived at their family session they looked so familiar and the first thing they asked was if I shot Stacy’s and Mel’s wedding […]

Sunrise DC Family Session

DC Family Photographer Sarah Botta Photography Cherry Blossom Session

There is nothing quite like the cherry blossoms in DC. It’s the only reason I would wake up at 5am, drive to Arlington, park, and take a taxi into the city. You may ask, why wake up so early and photograph at the Tidal Basin? Once 10am hits, the Tidal Basin becomes very crowded and no […]

The Collins go to church with the Anderson family who I’ve photographed for the last few years. During the Collins Manassas Battlefield Family Session, I found out that they used to live a […]

There was a lot of […]
