About Me

Hi! I'm Claudia. I love my family, my rescued 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 started photography in 2007, capturing live concerts and family portraits. I fell in love with capturing expressions and little, precious moments, perfecting lighting, and creating images that people could be proud of. 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 or cute puppy noses!). I donate work to non-profit animal rescue organizations and have volunteered for local and national animal rescues. I'm also Pet First Aid Certified and love all animals & breeds!
 
I invest time in getting to know each individual I work with to get the most out of their session. I also invest a lot into constantly furthering my education - this includes certifications, new challenges, and conferences or conventions. After I receive your inquiry through my website, we can set up your session directly or do an optional phone/video chat. This is where we can get to know each other, and I'll explain my workflow. Your photos, whether from your wedding day or a portrait 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! Click the button below and let's chat!

CAPTURING MOMENTS. PRESERVING MEMORIES.
