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.

Happy 1st Birthday Alexandria Grace!! I can’t believe I officially have a 1 year old. This little redhead is a wild one! It was a tough road getting to a year but my goodness is she so much fun now. Her personality is hilarious just like her Dad’s and she looks just like him. Before her birthday I had so many emotions. I kept thinking “the months are over” and I was sad in a way but also happy we had reached such a milestone. I remember the long nights when she would scream and cry and think to myself “I can’t wait until she is 1.” In my mind I thought things would be easier at age 1 and they certainly have!! But then I’d feel guilty not wanting to wish the months away. Being a mom is a funny thing. Your emotions are everywhere. Now here we are!! I have so much more appreciation for cakesmash sessions now. All the hard days and nights and you get to celebrate your little one turning a year.
Ally’s cakesmash theme was bunnies! Somebunny is one. She loves the Sleeping Bunnies video on Youtube from LooLoo Kids. This song was just about the only thing that she would focus on and stop crying when she was a baby. She absolutely loves music and gets super happy and quiet when she hears this song.
Her first birthday party took place in our new home. We moved in 1 week prior and knowing we had a birthday party for her with 23 guests really got our butts into hear to prep and unpack as much as we could in a week. Now, 2 months later not too much has gotten down since, haha!
Enjoy a few of my favorite images from my sweet girls cakesmash session and 1st birthday party.
