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, this beautiful family reached out about having a winter family session and cakesmash session for their son Arad. Arad’s first birthday was at the beginning of December. Since it was almost Christmas time and their son reached a milestone age, they wanted to have a few family photos taken as well. They had hoped for a little bit of a warmer day to be able to have Arad’s cakesmash outside but just a quick 15 minute drive away we easily had his session in the studio.
They day was absolutely gorgeous for their family session! When they stepped out of their car, they looked like they had just come from a magazine shoot or something. They looked fantastic! Those outfits were amazing and coordinated so well! We took a quick little walk down the path at Occoquan Regional Park and got some great family photos for about 15 minutes. We then headed to my studio to finish the session with Arad’s first year cakesmash.
It’s so hard to believe I photographed Arad as a newborn one year ago. What a little handsome thing he is! I loved being able to see and photograph this awesome family again. To see more of their sessions, click the links below.
