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.

Newborn Lifestyle Session Benjamin Peter (10 Days)
There’s something so simply perfect and natural about photographing newborns in a plain white wraps snuggled and loved in mom and dad’s arms. This newborn lifestyle session was so much fun and so relaxing. Benjamin was also relaxed and happy. He gave lots of little smiles through out his session. He was such a little cutie pie and such a happy little baby through his session. He cried once for a little feeding and then back to happy!
It’s been awhile since I’ve photographed a newborn lifestyle session. After this session, it’s something I definitely would like to do more often. I loved being able to photograph Benjamin in the comfort of his home. His parent’s bedroom was perfect when I stepped in, gorgeous lighting, the bed was made, perfectly clean white bedspread, no clutter in the bedroom, it was the perfect setting for a lifestyle newborn session! I then saw Benjamin’s nursery and it looked like it was straight out of Pinterest! His mom did an adventure themed nursery! You see those beautiful mountains over his crib? She painted those! His nursery was filled with cute little signs like “Little Man Cave”, “Oh The Places You Will Go”, and my personal favorite a verse from John “Be brave, strong, and courageous. Seek adventure and truth for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Once we took photos inside we took a few photos outside since it was peek for the cherry blossoms and their street was lined with them. It was absolutely gorgeous! Under the cherry blossom trees looked like some sort of fairy tale setting! I wish those trees were in bloom all year round!
Enjoy images from Benjamin’s lifestyle newborn. If you would like more information about having a newborn lifestyle session in your home, email [email protected] for more information.
