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.

I love when clients contact me and I find out they were referred from other clients. Referral’s are the best way to tell your photographer thank you! Arad’s Dad reached out to me to take photos of their first son. I was so happy I was able to photograph him at 14 days and not a day later. My ideal newborn is between 4-12 days new because they are still sleepy, pose able, and they don’t require as many frequent feedings. Arad loved being wrapped and extremely warm. He wasn’t a fan of the beanbag so I was able to get more prop shots. Arad was born in early December so I wanted to make sure I got a Christmas themed set up! I love the setup I got. It’s a wintery/ Christmas theme and I thought it photographed really well. I also photographed one my newest most favorite newborn photos. I love the simplicity of the neutral mocha setup. Arad look’s so peaceful and content.
I’m so glad that Arad’s parents also wanted a few photos with him. Arad’s mom is stunning! She reminded me of a Disney princess or something but wow did she photograph well!! Both parents were so sweet and I’m so happy to have met them and honored they chose me to capture their sweet little one.
Enjoy photos from newborn Arad’s session, my last newborn of 2016!
