what other photographers are saying...

Lazy Sunday Creative (LSC) was my first ever styled shoot! I was in my first year of business and I had learned about the power of styled shoots, for my portfolio and how it could benefit my photography education. I came across Clare and LSC on Facebook and reached out about her shoot in Hudson, NY. I arrived by myself and left with new friends, beautiful images and lots of photography tips and tricks. The shoots Clare plans are a safe space to be creative, try new ideas and network with like-minded creatives across industries. I HIGHLY recommend checking out LSC and joining the mailing list to make sure you're in the loop for her next event. trust me, you won't want to miss it!
