It's Tuesday and time to share another one of my photog friends with you. This week I'm featuring Claire Hunter of Claire Hunter Photography. She is located in Cinnaminson, NJ, and you can find her recent work on her blog and facebook page.
Now she claims she doesn't have a picture of herself, so I'll just tell you she is beautiful and currently sporting a super cute baby belly. :)
About the image…
1) Why do you love this image?
I love how peaceful he looks. It is hard to believe that the TV was pretty loud in the background and he did not move!
2) What were your settings with this image?
This image was done with studio lighting. I used a 50mm lens with the settings of ISO 100, f6.3, SS 1/125.
3) What do you love about Photography?
Everything! It is the best feeling to know that you have capture memories of a lifetime for others.
4) What type of Photography do you specialize in and why?
Newborns and children. I love capturing their natural expressions and true personalities.
About your life?
5) What are your favorite hobbies and pastimes?
I don't really have a hobby. It use to be photography and still is. I still enjoy taking the candid snapshots of my family when we are all together. I'm just a little better at it than before. LOL!
6) Who or what inspires you?
My husband inspires me. He has chosen to become a fireman as his career and would not change it for anything in the world. It takes a strong person to do what he does and I admire him for that. I am so proud of him.
7) Who are some of your favorite singers/bands?
My favorite is Elvis Presley. I sometimes feel I was born at the wrong time. LOL!
8) What is your favorite movie of all time?
There are so many that make me smile but my favorite are the ones that make me laugh. My all time favorite is My Cousin Vinny!
9) What would your ideal day be like?
I would love to sleep in but never do, even when I am given the chance too. I would love to then take the day and spend it outside with my husband and son. This winter weather really has me wishing for spring to come sooner than later. For lunch we would have a picnic and I could get some really nice shots of them together. You can never have too many pictures of your family. Every moment means something. I guess the rest of the day would be up in the air. Whatever they wanted to do.
10) If you weren't a photographer, what other profession would you like to pursue?
To be honest, I don't know. I've had 2 careers my entire life. I was a hairdresser for 9 years and worked in the mortgage industry for 10, I always wanted to do photography. I can remember more than a few years ago sitting at the table with my brother and sister and friends and we went around to each other and asked the question of what we really wanted to be when we grew up. Photography was my answer. My brother never did become a pilot. But you never know, dreams do come true, mine did!
Check back next Tuesday when I feature Nicole Ridella.
