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.

In October, Arad’s parents inquired about his first birthday session. They wanted to include family photos and end with a vintage airplane/ adventure themed studio cakesmash. How cute is this theme?! I was so excited for this session I made a historic map banner the night before the session! I thought it would be a nice touch to his adventure theme!
The day of their family and cakesmash session, we lucked out with beautiful weather in December! You can see their gorgeous family session at Occoquan Regional Park here. After the family session we headed to my studio for his cakesmash. Ella, Arad’s mother placed the cake in front of Arad and he immediately pushed it away. He loved holding his colorful globes and it took him awhile to realize the cake was all for him! Once he scraped off the icing he took a few bites of the yummy cake made by Buttercream in DC. The whole studio smelled like sugar and it smelled divine!
If you’re interested in booking a cakesmash session with your 1 year old, email [email protected] and ask about the 10×10 college every cakesmash session should buy!
