Hello there! I'm Claire, and I have been photographing families for the past seven years! After graduating from Oregon State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, I traveled to different areas of the world and during that time, I truly fell in love with photography and in particular, photographing people. Towards the end of my travels, I moved to Australia for a year while I figured out what I wanted to do with photography. Finally, I flew back home and decided to attend Boston's University's Center for Digital Imaging Arts for Digital Photography. I had some incredible teachers and mentors who work in the industry and my time there was invaluable. After graduating, I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, where I was inundated with photo opportunities and exposed to a rich and vibrant culture. I learned an incredible amount about photographing people from all walks of life, with different backgrounds, beliefs, and reasons for wanting my photography services. I have since settled down in the Austin hill country, Dripping Springs to be exact, with my husband and son. I am available for family sessions just about anywhere the opportunity takes me!
