Thayer calls Ojai home, a sun drenched mountain town filled with olive groves and citrus,. When not in Ojai at her studio & home named Casa Wilder, she is photographing the west coast vibe, floating in rivers and hiking to waterfalls drenched with sage. All the while with her sidekicks. A scruffy terrier & dorkie; Scout and Wilder. Her work is inspired by sincerity and playfulness. Capturing authenticity, beauty and happiness in the everyday. A Connecticut native who moved West, she finds inspiration in the western landscape in the far reaches of California. Seeking out hot springs and pink fog at sunset. Her lifestyle work celebrates the real stories of those that find themselves in front of her lens. Her energy when shooting is always open, fun & caring. Boundless when she has a shot list as long as her arm, quiet when on a farm, filming crafters in their studios in Vancouver. Adaptable and always filled with easy going charm. Her bags are rarely unpacked. She is often on her way to Cuba, Mexico or Big Sur; where she spends her free time. Thayer is a local to SF, LA and NY.
