Photographers Spotlight - Studio Cee Photography | League City Photographer

I'm so excited about a new feature on my blog.  Each Tuesday I'm going to spotlight one talented photographer.  I really hope you will enjoy getting to know some other photographers from around the world. 

To start us off we have Clarice Hendel of Studio Cee Photography in Orange County, CA.  Clarice is a very talented photographer who does some amazing newborn photography.  I also love what she can do with those beautiful California skies.  :)  You can find her current work on her blog and facebook page.

10 Questions
About the image…

1) Why do you love this image?

I love the composition that I created, the geometric shapes, the rich contrast and how I placed babies hands.

2) What were your settings with this image?

ISO 200, f/1.8, 1/500ss, 50mm lens.

About Photography…

3) What do you love about Photography?

I love the creative freedom that I have when picking up a camera. It really provides endless amounts of opportunity for me to explore new creative ideas. Not only can I photograph newborns but I can also photograph all ages, groups, landscape and macros...it's endless!

4) What type of Photography do you specialize in and why?

I specialize in newborns. When I first ventured into the world of photography it was soley due to an experience that I had with a local newborn photographer that I had hired to photograph my darling son at 8 days old. I was so fascinated by what she was doing. When I saw the final images, I was even more captivated, and I knew it was something that I needed to explore in the future.

About your life?

5) What are your favorite hobbies and pastimes?

I love traveling. My husband and I traveled a lot before we had our children, and a trip to Kauai was always on our agenda each year and still is as parents something we try to do every year. I also recently took up knitting, and I enjoy that a lot.

6) Who or what inspires you?

Oh gosh where do I begin? There are so many photographers that inspire me! But I am also inspired by the creativity I see in magazines, just browsing around etsy but I think nature inspires me to see beauty everywhere.

7) Who are some of your favorite singers/bands?

Gosh hmmm... It's been so long since I've enjoyed music for myself. Currently, I listen to a lot of children's music. LOL.

8) What is your favorite movie of all time?

"Australia" with Nicole Kidman. I could watch that a over and over again!

9) What would your ideal day be like?

It would be 1/3 day of accomplishments, 1/3 day with family, 1/3 day for myself.

10) If you weren't a photographer, what other profession would you like to pursue?

It would definitely be something in the creative field. I am a graphic designer and worked freelance for many years and loved it. I have studied interior design and I love that too. I am also interested in designing a kids clothing line someday. I use to design and sew all my clothing when I was younger.

Check back next Tuesday for a feature on Kentiga Photography.
