Michelle - Class of 2014

Heather Hamer


Senior Portrait season is well upon us here in Santa Maria and Orcutt and I could not be more excited! This year Michelle was the first senior I shot this summer (I consider it summer right now) and what a great person to start with! We went to one of my favorite locations for natural looking shots. We got some great shots and a had a ton of fun. Michelle was so easy to work with and her personality really shines through in these photos. This senior season I'm resolving to put everyone I shoot on the blog so wish me luck! santa_maria_photographer_2santa_maria_photographer_1santa_maria_photographer_4santa_maria_photographer_3

Santa Maria Senior Portraits | Nolan

Heather Hamer

Can you tell we had a blast with these senior portraits taken at Shell Beach? I love it when my seniors are up for anything, especially weathering the freezing cold Central Coast ocean waters! But Nolan is a surfer and water polo player so there's no way you can keep him out of the water - not even for his senior portraits! This handsome boy was awesome to work with! Enjoy

Danielle - Central Coast Senior Photographer

Danielle is such a natural stunning beauty! We took her senior portraits at Riverbench Vineyards and were lucky to get there soon before harvest. I'm so lucky to photograph in an area that has beaches, vineyards, mountains, etc. etc! I love it! Also lucky to have such great clients, especially this year. And Danielle was no exception!

Attention Class of 2014!

Kelsey - Santa Maria Senior Portraits

Heather Hamer


Remember Brad from last year and his darling girlfriend? Well the darling girlfriend is a senior now and I got to do her portraits at a beautiful ranch in Los Alamos. Kelsey is an all American sweetheart. She is genuine, has a great laugh, she takes smoking pictures, and she loves horses!

I was able to get another couple portrait of Brad and Kelsey.  Hopefully this won't be the last time I take pictures of this cute couple ;-)

Taylor - Santa Maria Senior Portraits

Heather Hamer


Meet Taylor. She is fun, athletic, and an amazing student too! I had so much fun with these portraits. We met up at Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez but it felt more like being in Tuscany (not that I've been there...yet). I knew that the Central Coast had some beautiful vineyards and wineries but this place was gorgeous, and a beautiful backdrop for a very beautiful girl.

Niki | Arroyo Grande Village Senior Portraits

Heather Hamer

Remember Niki? Well if you don't you have short term memory loss because she has been the star of my blog for the last couple months. But I promise that this might be the last you see of her for a while :) So here's my baby sister's senior portraits. I can't believe my baby is a senior! Niki, I just want you to know how proud I am of the woman you are becoming. You are absolutely gorgeous inside and out! I'm so glad we live close and have lots of time to spend together.Nipomo Senior Portrait PhotographerSanta Maria Senior Portrait PhotographerSanta Maria Senior Portrait Photographer

Meet Niki's best friend Tommy! He's a pretty boy and he knows how to work it for the camera!
