about

Hey there! My name is Jaymie Shearer. I bet you could guess my middle name by the second or third try. I am a California gal, through and through—I grew up in the Bay Area and after a hot second in San Diego, made San Luis Obispo my home for many years. My second favorite state is a tie between Wyoming and Montana and Arizona. Like any good Californian, my diet consists of all things Mexican food and craft brews. There have been times in my life where coffee was spelled H2O. Some of my favorite things involve friends coming together around a campfire and sharing stories long into the night.

I'm often asked what kind of photographer I am and, to be honest, I never really know how to respond—I enjoy shooting weddings, engagements, family reunions, documentary images, lifestyle, you name it! You see, I just really like people and if they the focus of my work, I'm happy. Be it candid shots, landscapes with someone hiking through the frame, portraits, self portraits, etc. If a picture is worth a thousand words and people are full of millions more, the two captured in a moment in time has potential to teach us something. Photography has taught me how to see light and I want my images to pass that onto you—be it literally or symbolically. Sometimes our world may feel dark and lonely, I want my work to remind you there is goodness, light, and life out there. It's served this purpose for me through the years journey. I hope it does the same for you.

There is a whole lot more we can talk about but for now I'm going to leave it at that. Shoot me an email if you'd like to work together or just want to chat. You can see more of my work via social media aka twitterinstagram, and facebook. Oh and sometimes I write and sometimes I post it on medium. Talk to you soon!
