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’ve been photographing babies since 2012 and have photographed over 400 newborns.  it is such an honor that families trust me with their most precious possessions- i do not take that responsibility lightly.

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 have traveled across the country teaching other newborn photographers.  i pride myself on having professional equipment, a large selection of quality props in my home studio, and a style that is unique to my competition.  your baby’s safety and comfort is of utmost importance to me.

i’ve been married to my husband, jeff, for over 18 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 14 and loves superheroes, isabella who is 12 and will eat anything as long as its primary ingredient is sugar, and charlotte who is 10 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 precious new baby.  i look forward to calling you not just my client, but my friend.
