Lifestyle Family Photography: The Sarachan’s

The Sarachan family is the sweetest! Rea and Ian were open to traveling to a new location that I wanted to try out, and also gave me the freedom to try new poses for their session. In addition to that, they were also extremely accommodating. We had to reschedule their family session due to the rain and I am so glad we did! The weather could not have been more perfect! Shay, their daughter stole my heart. She was the happiest little thing the whole time. The Sarachan’s are such a happy family, the entire session was effortless. They just radiated love and happiness!

When Rea told me that she wanted to do her session in the open fields, I was beyond excited! She mentioned that Ian calls this the “field of gold look,” and I could not agree more! I typically photograph all outdoor sessions an hour before sunset for the best lighting. Take a look below to see why they call this the “golden hour.” I had so many favorites from this session, it was difficult to pick which ones to share! The Sarachan’s are such great people, I’m so glad I had the opportunity to meet and photograph their fun little family!


I absolutely enjoy photographing couples at the end of all my family sessions. It is so beautiful to be able to capture the love that they share. Rea and Ian are so cute together! They are high school sweethearts and their love shows!! I love how in love they are!
