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.

emmeline grace

Emmeline Grace was born February 17, 2012 at 4:41 am weighing 6 lbs 15 oz and measuring 19″ long. She apparently couldn’t wait to be in Mommy’s arms because my labor from start to finish was just 2 hours 41 minutes! We made it to the hospital just in time. I was induced a week late with Ellie and never felt a single contraction and so with this pregnancy I really wanted the experience of going naturally. I wanted to experience the excitement and uncertainty of going into labor when my baby was good a ready. I wanted to feel my first real contraction. I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it all naturally.

And I did.

I can’t say that I was one of those zen Moms giving birth all peacefully, but I did it my own way and let’s just say I’m thankful that my labor was super fast!

I had my first contraction at 2am and from the start my contractions were lasting 1.5 – 3 minutes each and coming every 3-4 minutes. I thought I was maybe timing them incorrectly since usually labor is a slow progression that builds up. I had planned on laboring at home for as long as I could before heading to the hospital to avoid as much “intervention” as possible, but after an hour and a half of consistently strong and close contractions, we called my Dr. and she told us to come in asap. We left the house around 3:30 am.

We arrived at the hospital around 4am. Checked into triage (7cm and 100% effaced!), monitored, sent to labor and delivery, and by the time they had my heplock/IV in, I was dilated to 10 and my body was already pushing the baby out. It’s pretty amazing what our bodies are designed to do. I felt panicked and was in so much pain, but my body was doing everything that it needed to do and I just had to give in to it. It still amazes me when I think back on Emmeline’s birth.
