I was raised on a farm on the East Coast, and moved to California to learn to surf and chase the sunlight. I think basically all brunch foods taste like happiness, and the feeling of longing on the last night of traveling before you come home is a kind of magic. I started taking photos as a way to remember the way the moments felt when they slipped away too fast.

Documenting other’s lives, capturing their memories has been an incredible privilege as a photographer. As others have opened their lives to me, shared intimate moments, and deep belly laughs, they have become friends and family. I would be honored to chase sunlight and dreams with you.

With Love, Claire
