Pixels to Portraits is a locally-owned photography studio founded by Jamie Wheeler. Jamie is a passionate photographer with a soft spot for children and a flair for unique photographic prospective. In 2003, she opened Pixels to Portraits in order to follow her dreams of turning her love for photography into her life.

Jamie is a reserved artist who enjoys studying the art of photography and graphic arts. She holds a B.A. in Fine Arts and continually completes additional course work in her field. Her talent pairs classic portrait techniques with cutting edge graphic design and the results add a remarkable impact for clients.

“I feel like I need to constantly learn new things about my profession. I try to surround myself with people who push me and blanket myself with new information in the field," she says.

Jamie’s artistic roots are bred from a family of fine artisans. Jamie’s father, Byron, is an award-winning sculptor, who is primarily known for his large-scale wood carvings. Additionally he works as a potter, a muralist and a graphic artist. Jamie’s family also boasts talented weavers, quilters, sketch artists and painters.

Jamie began her artistic career while in high school where she flirted with different mediums. Soon after, friends began commissioning Jamie to paint children’s murals. The murals became a source of inspiration throughout Jamie’s college career as numerous opportunities to expand her artistic nature came via referrals. After graduation, Jamie worked as a graphic artist where she guided clients through corporate identity processes, advertising campaigns and print media.

After months of preparation, Jamie took the plunge of opening her own studio in 2003. In order to make ends meet, she took on a second job as a waitress during the first year the studio was open. As her client base grew, she was able to focus full-time on her studio.

The future is what Jamie is fixated on now. Pixels to Portraits focuses on expanding its portfolio of ideas and creation of new and exciting images for clients.

Jamie and her husband Ryan are the proud parents of two beautiful children. Additionally, Jamie is a proud aunt of eight, and we have lost count of the numerous loved cousins now. Some of her most special models are close relatives.
