My name is Claudia, and I'm a lifestyle portrait photographer based in South Florida and the Florida Keys! As a mom of three, I know it can be so tricky to wrangle the kids together for a photo session... But they grow up so fast, and those images of your babies are priceless.

My goal is to capture images that show the heartbeat of your family. My favorite photos are the ones where you are interacting with each other and having fun together! I love to let kids be kids—they can explore a little, play with seashells, tickle daddy, and give mommy lots of hugs and kisses! Meanwhile, I'll give you directions and gentle posing so you all look amazing. I have an eye for details and try to always capture the perfect photo in camera, so I'll be paying attention to your hair and clothes to make sure you look your best!

Hey, friend!

the portrait experience

-clara, 2018

Claudia was absolutely amazing! She went above and beyond what I expected from her. It was sooo windy, yet she made it work and the photos are stunning.

- shay, 2017

Claudia looks at her subjects as if we are the only people on the planet. She thinks out of the box in order to present the best photos possible for her clients.

- clara, 2018

I cannot say enough about how easy and fun she made the photoshoot.

- Kristen, 2018

Her spectacular photographs speak for themselves, while her customer service and infectious personality truly set her apart from others.

- allison, 2017

She made us feel so comfortable that even my fiancé who is shy in front of cameras was enjoying himself, which makes the photos even more authentic!

- danielle, 2017

Not only did I love every single one of my pictures, her organizational skills and posing ideas were fantastic.

We were absolutely delighted with Claudia! 

As parents of a baby it’s pretty impossible to get professional photographs of all of us together! We were absolutely delighted with Claudia! So professional and the photos were wonderful! Considering a fiesty one year old baby girl to work with on the shoot, Claudia was a pleasure to work with and did so well getting us to relax and just enjoy the moment! So so happy to have found Claudia and would recommend her if visiting Miami and Keys and you have a special event/trip/celebration to capture!

Claudia was very friendly, knowledgeable and very professional.

Having Claudia take my daughter’s 15s pictures at Vizcaya was truly a memorable experience. Claudia was on top of everything prior to the day of the photoshoot making sure we were prepared for the big day. On the day of the event not only did she show up on time but she arrived with beautiful flowers for my daughter. What a great and unexpected touch to this special day! She was very friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. She made my daughter feel very comfortable and at ease and it showed in the great pictures she took. I highly recommend her.
