Bonnie Jaimes

Life and Life-Style Artist and Photographer
My Dad and Granddad were both photographers.  As a child, I often went along carrying my little film camera.  Following the tradition, I learned to apply creativity using a documentary style to tell a story in moments - a thread of chronologic memories in photos - for a client and for my own personal collections and albums.  There is no better way to remember family celebrations, great vacations and lifetime milestones than to visit those moments again through your pictures.  I love to capture the romance of a wedding, the fragile tenderness of a new baby, and the spirit & energy of animals and children.  ​​I also use photography to document images of personal property for insurance records, and for commercial purposes such as home, equipment and vehicle sales.

A bachelor's degree in Business and hours of coursework in Photography, Visual Arts & Photojournalism have helped in developing an artistic style.  Photography has had a real impact on my life and ongoing study continues to be a great resource to constantly improve my craft.  I see what capturing a great photo means to me and this has created a driven passion to pursue that joy and share it with others.  I've been given the opportunity to work free-lance on location in various parts of the United States, and in Mexico, Jamaica, Canada and Okinawa, Japan.  I love the outdoors - Nature Unscripted - the pure excitement of capturing the amazing colors, layers & textures that nature & landscapes offer.

The Studio is now home-based in San Antonio, Texas after moving from the New Orleans area.  San Antonio has a rich and colorful culture and some amazing local history -- and Great Food.  Visit us anytime and sample this amazing city!

I truly love what I do - so when we work together, you will never be rushed.  The total focus is on your project.  Let's discuss your expectations and your time line prior to the event.  I ask that you have fun, be comfortable and really relax and enjoy your photo experience.  Call and let's get started !

"Bonnie came to take photos at my grandson's first birthday party.  We had the photos back in no time and she created a video slideshow of photos taken that day which still delights family and friends when they visit.  We have used her services for a number of other events and hope she can always be a part of making future memories for us."
Irene Garcia, Hilton Properties

"Bonnie spent a couple of days capturing photographs of a very popular well-known golf course in San Antonio, Texas for a calendar project. The days were long, the photos were amazing and she did all the graphic design and artwork which went into a 12-Month calendar.  She did an outstanding job - the calendar is a testimony of her passion, professionalism and great photographic & design talent."
Victor Gonzalez, Property Management, San Antonio, TX

As a writer, I needed a professional photographer to document a body of promotional work being filmed.  Much to my delight, I was referred to Bonnie.  She did an outstanding job on the set, and interacted beautifully with the cast and crew.  Once the shoot was completed, Bonnie surprised me with a lovely set of still shots of the cast.  Bonnie is a dedicated professional with a sincere passion for her craft.  Without hesitation I recommend having her on any set. After engaging her services on two separate occasions, I'm looking forward to working with her again on my next project.
