About Me


Hi! I'm Claudia. I love my family, rescue pets, and finding the best hiking trails. I grew up in Los Angeles but I've been calling Cleveland home for nearly two decades. I have three rescue dogs and two rescue cats. I have a great sense of humor and I'm passionate about helping people and animals. I started photography in 2007, capturing live concerts and family portraits. I fell in love with not only capturing that perfect shot that I can be proud of - but also watching people's reactions when they see a stunning photo of themselves in a moment that they're proud of, too. In 2013, I was a photographer for The Walt Disney Company in California. (Yes - it was as much fun as you're thinking!). Some of my favorite photos include candid expressions, silly dog faces, and detail shots (think of those pretty ring shots at weddings!).
I invest time in getting to know each client to get the most out of their session. I also invest a lot into constantly furthering my education - this includes online courses to Photoshop challenges! After I receive your inquiry through my website, we'll set up a brief phone/video conversation and then an in-person meeting if you desire. This is where we can get to know each other, and I'll explain my workflow. Many wedding packages come with prints and a USB with a printing release. Your photos, whether from your wedding day or a family session, should be preserved for years to come, hence why I am a big advocate for top quality printing. From inquiry to print order, I'm here each step of the way. After all, prints are how we preserve those moments for years to come! Take your first step by sending me a message.
