hello hello! I'm Clare.
the short: I'm a self-taught + natural light + documentary style photographer based in OKC.
the long(ish): I first picked up a camera in seventh grade & since then photography has been a constant in my life. I completely sucked at first, but the passion was there & I stuck with it & eventually figured it out (well, still figuring it out). somewhere along the way I found my niche, though I didn't realize it until pretty recently. if you look over my old photos there is a running theme... storytelling. yeah, yeah, yeah, every photographer says that. but I mean it! I've been photographing everyday in-between moments since I started. that's where the real beauty is- in the ordinary.
THAT SAID (let me be completely honest here), if you are looking for a photographer who knows poses like the back of their hand, I am not the one for you! in fact, I'm horrible at posing people. but! what I am good at is following you around & capturing the ordinary beautiful. if that's what you're looking for, I think we'd make a remarkable match.
I am most inspired by God's Creation (especially the beautiful homestead He's blessed me with), old photographs, film & music. I am a 'less is more' kind of gal, especially when it comes to photography- it'll just be me & my camera. my style is vivid + dynamic, organic + honest.
let's just hang out & take cool photos. or let me follow you around on a special day. or let's collaborate & bring your vision to life. I'm game for just about anything.
