Hi there! My name is Claire and I specialize in maternity, newborn, and family photography for the Philadelphia Metro Area/Delaware Valley.
I am a wife and mom of two. I am obsessed with salt, travel, Pinterest, and pottery. Some of my favorite things are my mom's oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and her chicken pot pie, fireworks, Zumba classes (or simply dancing to anything with a beat...thank you, Pitbull), pasta, the mountains and the ocean - espcially where they meet. I'm a sucker for sitcoms, stand up comedians, and anything with a quirky detective in it.
Above all, I treasure my family, my friends, my camera equipment, and old photos.

Since I was a child, I have had a deep love for the arts. Whether I was repeatedly rearranging my bedroom, taking summer art classes, or using my Fisher Price 110 camera, the creative world is where I felt at home and thrived. These childhood passions led me to a career as an interior designer. I loved learning about color, composition, and how light affects space. However, photography remained my true passion. My favorite college elective was a black and white film course. Being able to not only take the pictures but develop the negatives and prints myself felt like magic.
The economic crisis of 2008 coupled with the birth of my first born led to a career change from interior designer to professional photographer. I was estatic. My new career afforded me the luxury of being there for my own children and documenting their childhoods. It also allows me to document your family's story.
In addition to loving photography, I have a major soft spot when it comes to children. Children add so much energy and fun to a session. I love interacting with people and building relationships with my families. It is an honor to be let into people's lives and homes. To watch children grow is amazing.
