The story of a photographer

Hello! I'm Sara Whittingham, a passionate and creative photographer based in Orange County, California. With over four years of experience, I specialize in family, maternity, and newborn photography. I understand that your family is precious to you, and I approach every session with the same care and attention to detail as I do with my own three girls.

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved and admired photography for its artistic ability to capture life's most precious moments and to convey any message, but it wasn't until I became a mother that I truly appreciated the power of freezing time through a photograph. I realized that these moments are fleeting, and as a photographer, I have the privilege of capturing precious memories that will last a lifetime.

My style is authentic, beautiful, and artistic. I believe that each family has a unique story to tell, and I am dedicated to capturing those special moments that make your family truly one-of-a-kind. Whether it's a maternity session where the joy and anticipation of a new life are palpable, a newborn session where the delicate innocence of a newborn is cherished, or a family session where the bonds of love and connection are celebrated, I strive to tell your story in a genuine and heartfelt way.

I take pride in building a personal connection with my clients, understanding their vision, and creating a comfortable and relaxed environment during our sessions. I believe that the best photographs are captured when you feel at ease, and I work tirelessly to make sure you feel comfortable in front of the camera.

As the owner of Shots OC Photography, I am committed to providing the highest level of service and professionalism. From planning and styling to editing and delivering the final images, I pour my heart and soul into every step of the process to ensure that you receive stunning photographs that you will treasure for a lifetime.

Thank you for considering me to capture your precious moments. I look forward to telling your story through my lens and freezing time in a way that you can cherish forever. Let's create beautiful memories together!

“Sara is simply amazing at what she does. I have been shooting with Sara for a little over a year and we have NAILED some amazing shots together, thanks to her! I am SO NOT comfortable in front of the camera (head shots or taking action photos) and Sara makes you feel amazing in front of the camera. She helps guide the way, her cues are clear and amazing, she knows exactly how to get the right angles, and is SUPER creative. We have gotten so many amazing shots together and I couldn't be more pleased!”
