meet shara

 hi there!

my name is shara bachman and i’m so glad you are here! i hope to have the opportunity to capture your special memories.

i am a natural and studio light photographer located in orange county, california.  i specialize in capturing custom images that capture emotion and feeling.  whether it’s a precious newborn baby or a spunky family of five, i love bringing you and your personality to life in your portraits.

i would describe myself as passionate.  honest. fun. hard-working. a perfectionist.  silly. creative.  i will lay in bed at night putting together newborn setups in my head or thinking about how to pose the maternity session i’m photographing the next day.  photography is a part of me… i am so grateful to get to do something i’m so passionate about for a living.

i’m a member of the professional photographers association of america.  i am consistently participating in both online and live workshops/mentoring to grow in my skills.  i recently traveled to nebraska to mentor under my favorite newborn photographer in the country, nicole smith photography.  i pride myself on having professional equipment and a large selection of props in my home studio.

i’ve been married to my husband, jeff, for over 14 years.  he is the funniest man you will ever meet, and also incredibly smart, kind, and thoughtful.  he supports me and loves me and i’m so grateful to be his wife.  we have three crazy-awesome kids- jackson who is 9 and loves superheroes, isabella who is 7 and will eat anything as long as its primary ingredient is sugar, and charlotte who is 5 and may be the craziest child i’ve ever encountered.  i’m incredibly blessed .

besides my family and my photography, i love my morning coffee. necklaces. anything from anthropologie. painted toenails. girls’ night out. disneyland. chips and salsa. decorating on a budget. mascara. novels. watching tv. bright colors. treasure hunting.

i am honored that you would invite me into your life to capture your life.  i look forward to calling you not just my client, but my friend.
