Hi. I'm Heather Hamer.


When I stand behind my camera, I am constantly reminded how lucky I am to have the job I do! Of course, this dream of mine did not come true overnight. Like many in my trade, my love for photography started young. Fortunately for me, my high school provided classes where I could delve into everything from the basics to developing my own film. I was hooked! From there I continued my education into college and beyond, all the while practicing with any person willing to pose in front of my lenses.

With the knowledge, the equipment and years of experience I was thrilled when my husband Phil and I were able to turn everything into an official business in 2008. We rented a studio in downtown Santa Maria and eventually were able to build a studio onto our house to be able to offer both studio and location shoots.

From the darkroom to the digital, I will always feel most myself when I am able to look through my viewfinder and create a lasting moment - with you as the star!

Now that I have shared a little about myself, let's get to know you! I am excited to meet you and schedule a session! See you soon!
