I photograph unique high school & college graduates, laid-back families, & creative small businesses/brands.
Hey You! I'm claire olivia
I'm a midwest lifestyle & commercial photographer, plant-eater, thrifter, story collector & teller, wannabe poet, personality test obsessed enneagram 4, & self-proclaimed artist.
I grew up shooting with a tiny red point-and-shoot Kodak camera & developed a passion for this art from a young age. I find myself drawn to creating, telling & affirming stories through photography because of struggles that I've personally faced with feeling misunderstood & not deeply known for who I am & what I bring.
I yearn to make others feel this-- appreciated, understood & confident. Photography allows me to do just that. It allows me to encourage the subject in front of my lens. It allows me to create images that embody different aspects of my client’s personality or brand. It allows me to put my complex feelings into art that other humans can resonate with. And it allows me to impact people in meaningful ways through storytelling.
YOU have so much to offer & your story is worthy of being told! Let me tell it!
Don't we all want to feel valued, seen & like we're full of purpose?
