Spread That Love | El Dorado Kansas Child Photographer

This year, I am introducing Valentine Express Portrait Sessions with an added bonus! Schedule an Express Portrait Session for your kiddos while helping other kids in your community.  Sounds like a win-win, right?  Absolutely!

I will donate 100% of all session fees from the Valentine Express Portrait Sessions to our local CASA to help kids who need extra support in our local community.

After considering several local charities to donate to, even though I want to help them all, I had to choose just one to donate to this time. My heart kept pulling me back to Tri-County CASA. Next year, I will choose a new charity to receive these donations.

The Tri-County CASA website explains what CASA is best:

“A Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) is an individual volunteer who is appointed by a judge to speak for the best interest of children brought into the judicial system as victims of abuse or neglect. These volunteers are trained by the organization, and they spend time with the children, their families, health agencies and foster families.”


While hearing from others about CASA, these points are what stood out to me the most and these are why I chose to donate to this organization:

  • CASA is the one person who remains a constant in the child’s life during the duration of their case
  • Spends time with the child and those in their life (teachers, doctors, families, etc.) to get to know the child
  • Helps to determine what is best for the child’s future
  • Donations help the organization to recruit and train new volunteers

Reserve your spot at my Valentine Express Portrait Sessions event, to spread your love by having your $50 session fee donated to Tri-County CASA!


By reserving your spot and paying the $50 session fee, you get to feel great for making a donation to help kids in our local community.

You’ll also get a 15 minute express session with me, to photograph your kid(s)! There will be print and digital packages available to purchase your child’s portraits from the session.  These photos would make a great addition to their school valentine candies that they will pass out to their friends!

Sarah Shah Portraits Valentine Express Sessions

Pumpkin Patch Adventure | Walters Pumpkin Patch | Kansas Photographer

I visited Walter’s Pumpkin Patch in Burns, Kansas with my brother and his family a few weeks back for my first time there.  I loved it so much I knew I wanted to bring S back for Fall fun and to explore the place.  If you didn’t visit this pumpkin patch – you must next year!  It is huge, there is a lot of activities that are included in the entrance fee, and it’s not too long of a drive North of El Dorado, KS.

For my second trip there, we invited some of our friends to join us to spend time catching up, and let the kids have a lot of time running around playing.  It was a hot near 90 degrees October day, we were grateful for the huge shade trees and enjoyed lots of laughs together.


Located in Burns, KS, this pumpkin patch was a great place for a family photo shoot and lifestyle portrait session for fall.  Sarah Shah Portraits is based in El Dorado, Kansas.  Find us on Facebook

El Dorado Kansas Child Portraits

It is finally feeling like Autumn – mostly in the mornings but I will take it!  The leaves are changing to beautiful colors and the crisp cool morning air is great.  Our Fall schedule is jam packed just like everyone else’s but I have been wanting to get out an shoot some photographs before the leaves fall off the trees entirely.  I have been lucky to find quick 30 minutes here and there a few evenings before the sunset to head out and find different space in town.

More to come! We went out three evenings to different spots around El Dorado.

Breast Cancer Survivors | Kansas Photographer

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, I was honored to be given the opportunity to meet a group of survivors.  They each have unique stories and it was enlightening to briefly hear about their journeys.  They were a great group of women full of life, laughter, and of course chatted the whole time!  We had a great time during our quick 30 minute mini portrait session in NorthEast Wichita Kansas.
