Senior Portrait Photography 3

Katherine is one of those girls that just radiates beauty! And it's not just because of her gorgeous red hair, sun-kissed fair skin, and striking blue eyes! She is such a fun and beautiful girl and I loved taking her portraits. We went to Shell Beach and had so much fun at this shoot. She was up for anything and a pleasure to work with! I'm so lucky to have her as my ambassador for St. Joseph High School this year! Get in touch with Katherine and she can hook you up with an awesome discount on your senior portrait shoot!

Senior Ambassador OAHS: Maddy

Santa Maria Photographer 2

Maddy is one of my great senior ambassadors from Orcutt Academy. For her photos she chose the classy and elegant Sunstone Winery which is one of my favorite places to take photos. It is always so beautiful in the Santa Ynez valley and the light that reflects of the limestone is so pretty. A perfect backdrop for this gorgeous soon-to-be senior! It was so fun to get to know Maddy a little bit better and she was great in front of the camera. If you're looking to save a little money on your senior portraits, get in touch with Maddy and she can help you out!

Senior Ambassador RHS: Ashley

Heather Hamer

I've known Ashley since she was very young, and it was so awesome, even a little sentimental, for me to be able to take her senior photos! I loved the location she chose because it offered a dramatic forest, a beautiful garden, rock walls, and a waterfall. I think I'll make this one of my regular spots! I'm so happy to have Ashley representing Heather Hamer Photography at Righetti High School. If you want a great discount on your senior portraits get in touch with Ashley and she will be happy to help you! santa maria photographer 5santa maria photographer 2santa maria photographersanta maria photographer 3santa maria photographer 4santa maria photographer 6

Rachel is one of my awesome senior ambassadors for Orcutt Academy High School! She was so great in front of the camera. She's a beautiful girl and so sweet. I've loved working with Rachel over the last several years taking photos of her cheerleading, swimming, diving, etc. so it was an absolute pleasure to do her senior pictures as well. We had an awesome time on this shoot in Arroyo Grande Village!If you want a discount on your Senior Photos get in contact with Rachel so she can hook you up!

Jennifer and Ryan | Pismo Beach Wedding Photographer

Heather Hamer

blog 2

On Saturday I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph the beautiful wedding of Jennifer and Ryan at the Ventana Grill in Pismo Beach. What an amazing day full of love! Not even the 28 MPH wind could put a damper on the festivities. I loved the venue with its 180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean. During the reception a big pod of dolphins began playing in the waves right outside the windows of the hall! What a fun memory especially for all the guests who traveled from out of town or out of the country to celebrate the love these two share. Enjoy a sneak peak of their big day!blog 2blog 4bblog 1blog3b

What to expect when I'm expecting...

Maternity Photography

We are so excited to be adding a little boy to our family in June! Because of this I will be taking the month of June off for maternity leave, but I'll still be taking appointments and expect to be busier than ever come July, so don't be afraid to keep contacting me. I will also make sure all products and orders are completed before the blessed event! I've already been doing shoots with my Class of 2015 senior ambassadors this week. I've got some great ambassadors and this is going to be an amazing year of senior portraits! I can't wait. There's a lot of blogging that I still need to do; lot's of amazing class of 2014 shots that I still need to post, lots of kids shoots to post, and I also get to introduce my new ambassadors. So really, I might be spending my maternity leave doing blog posts in between baby feedings! The other night, my husband Phil and I decided to do some late night maternity photos. Sometimes when the kids are asleep and we don't have too much work to catch up on, we like to experiment with our lights (or giant flowers) and have fun. Here are some of the shots...

Porter and Ellie! Santa Maria Kid Photography

Santa Maria Childrens portraits 6

Porter and Ellie are such great kids! Porter is such a neat boy. He was so kind and very polite, and Ellie is only 4 and has a personality and smile that can light up a room! Ellie loved getting photographed and the camera sure loved her! Plus these two were able to get their pictures taken next to each other without trying to kill each other which is a true sign of sibling love.Santa Maria Childrens portraits 3Santa Maria Childrens portraits 2Santa Maria Childrens portraits 4Santa Maria Childrens portraits 1Santa Maria Childrens portraits 5Santa Maria Childrens portraits 6Santa Maria Childrens portraits 7Santa Maria Childrens portraitsSanta Maria Childrens portraits 8
