I am a lifestyle photographer which means I prefer to capture moments as they occur naturally, rather than create artificial ones. I am inspired by the everyday moments and real life events in people's lives. My goal is to create photos that tell the story of your life in an artistic, creative way.
Where do photo shoots take place?
For lifestyle shoots I am happy to meet you anywhere in the Madison/Dane County area - whether that be your home, a pumpkin patch, or your favorite coffee shop. Some of my personal favorite spots include the Arboretum, Picnic Point, and Aldo Leopold Nature Center. In home lifestyle sessions are at the top of my list too!
For weddings I tend to travel wherever my client is. The more adventurous the location, the better! I am always game for traveling as well!
How many pictures will I receive?
You will receive a minimum of 40 edited images per hour of shooting.
How and when will I receive my pictures?
Pictures are delivered via online digital gallery. For portrait and lifestyle sessions you will receive an email with a link to your online gallery within two weeks. For weddings you will receive the gallery as well as a USB drive within 6-8 weeks.
Will I receive the copyright to the images?
Claire Staley Photography, LLC retains the copyright to the images, however, you will receive a print release which means you can share and print all the images you want as long as you aren't making a profit off of them.
