i'm claire - 18 year old photographer and filmmaker based in San Diego and Los angeles. my passion behind the camera blossomed when I was 11. I started out by photographing family, close friends, and every little place, thing and person I found interesting. today, my work mainly surrounds what my heart still gravitates most towards - portraits.

i discovered storytelling within motion pictures soon after. i began by experimenting with stop motion, then live action when creating simplistic music videos. now, i am signed with adolescent, a production company based in la representing youth directors. i have directed national television commercials and short films for companies such as disney, hasbro, american girl, target and Netflix.

welcome to my work - this is me. thank you for showing interest.
