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.

Norah seems to be becoming a popular girls name for 2017. She’s my second Norah (with an H) this year! I love her full name Norah June. Her middle name June is named after her Grandmother.
Ten day old newborns are my sweet spot for newborn sessions. Every newborn I have photographed at 10 days has been amazing! Norah didn’t make a peep her entire session and she only fed once I think?! She did such a great job and I was able to get lots of great photos on the bean bag, props, and with Mom and Dad! I love the photos with Norah’s Mom and Dad. Such a sweet family photos and Norah’s mom is simply stunning!
Norah has a super strong neck for only being 10 days new. At one point on the beanbag during her session she lifted her head up and turned the other way! It was too funny. I gave her a little break and kept on photographing her sweet little smiles. Norah was the smiliest newborn I have ever photographed. She was filled with smiles the entire session and it made my heart melt!
About a year ago I photographed Norah’s cousin Eloise. Time flies!
