Sarah K Chen Photography Blog bio picture

Welcome to my Blog!

I'm a simple person who loves photographing people and spending time with my husband and two little girls, Ellie (4) and Emmeline (1). My girls are my world and every day I wonder how I became so blessed to be their Mama.

When I'm not behind the camera I love to knit and sew cute things for my girls and bake cookies. My husband likes to say I'm a granny at heart, but I like to say I'm a woman of many talents. ;)

I also enjoy snowboarding, traveling and immersing myself in books. One day I will conquer Cornice and get down without snowplowing my way. I dream of traveling to Greece, Italy and Paris one day, but I have yet to convince the husband that traveling abroad with two little ones would be aweome. I'd also love to go camping and show my girls the joys of a perfectly toasted marshmallow and walking barefoot through an icy cold creek bed. And although I said it would never happen, I now read most of my books on my iPhone or iPad instead of a book. Have kids and you'll soon realize the gift of a built in light and always having your book with you.

I'm based in Orange County, California and ocassionally travel for shoots.

Adjusting

Our baby girl at 5 weeks! I know I’ve been a bad blogger lately, but with Ellie I jumped right back into work shooting my first wedding just 2.5 weeks after giving birth and so this time around I’m allowing myself some time to really enjoy this newborn phase as it goes by in the blink of an eye. At 7 weeks she outgrew all her newborn clothes and I cried. I try to savor each moment, yet it still flies by. Just this week Emmeline has started trying to converse with me. She looks intently at me and at my mouth and little coos and gurgles come out her mouth and then she smiles and looks all proud of herself afterwards. It’s to. die. for. My little girl melts my heart with every little thing she does.

We’re all still adjusting to being a family of four. When my friends told me that having baby #2 was more than doubly hard than having one I didn’t really understand. Now I do. Poor Ellie has had to adjust to not having all my attention. She adores her baby sister and is constantly kissing and hugging her and wanting to help with everything baby related, but has been acting out with me and Jeff. She’s told me twice to not hold the baby anymore and just today when she acted out, I put her in time out and she bawled her eyes out. While bawling she eventually blurted out between sobs, “Mommy, I MISS you!” And my heart absolutely shattered. I know her acting out is her toddler way of gaining my attention but I’m at a loss on whether to discipline her behavior or ignore it. That was the first time she was able to articulate her feelings about not being my only baby anymore. We’ve done some fun one on one things together like baking and painting, but it obviously hasn’t been enough or perhaps she just needs more time. Regardless, the Mommy guilt is killer.

Ellie is on Spring Break this week and on Monday I took the two kids to the park in the morning after breakfast. Emmeline still doesn’t like being in her infant car seat so I had to hold her in my arms at the park. But then Ellie got stuck climbing the rock wall and I had to rescue her  – twice. I had Emmeline in one arm and then grabbed Ellie off the wall with the other. That wasn’t as bad as when Ellie asked to go on the swings. Picking up a 30+ lb toddler in one arm, while holding a newborn in the other, and trying to get the toddler into the swing? Ha, super awkward. But I got her in and pushed her for about 2 minutes until she said she was done. Say what? Girl, did you  not just see your Mama struggle to get you in the swing? Getting her out was nearly impossible. For a second I almost contemplated laying my newborn on the ground to free up both hands to lift her out of the swing! But I got her out eventually. Yay me!

I have a bunch of weddings I still need to share. I’m hoping I’ll get a couple of hours tomorrow while Emmeline naps to crank them out. In the mean time I’m really looking forward to the start of this wedding season! Thanks all for your patience and understanding. 🙂
