ABOUT ME

Hello there! Let me introduce myself, I am Claire. You are probably asking, who is Kathryn. I know...it confuses everyone. I go by my middle name. My full name is Kathryn Claire Pinon.

On a side note, I love the meaning of my name. Claire means giver of light. My hope is that I can live up to my name.

A little about me, first and foremost, I'm a wife to a wonderful husband and a mother of three beautiful children. My three kids have taught me so much about  life and learning to live to my fullest. My patient and supportive husband is my lighter side. Sometimes I tend to take life a little too serious, and he is there with a joke to bring me back to what matters.

My favorite moments of the day are the quiet peaceful moments of early morning to drink my coffee, read and pray. I love discussions around the dinner table in the evenings. I also just enojoy hanging out at home, talking and laughing with the people I love.

Additionally, I like to spend my spare moments as a photographer. It's a hobby that has grown into a business. To me it doesn't feel like work it is something I just enjoy doing.

My passion for photography began in college. as a journalism major, attending Abilene Christian University. There I took my first photography class; one of the assignments was to photograph children. With camera in hand, I set off to a local daycare. I had so much fun interacting, playing and making those kids laugh. On that playground is where I discovered a passion for photography.

After college, I began teaching journalism and photography, as well as, advising the yearbook and newspaper at Cleburne High School in Cleburne, Texas. Soon after, I met my husband and we were married the following year. A year and a half later our first child was on the way. After three years of teaching, I resigned to become a full time mom to my daughter. Since then, we've added to our family: two fun energetic boys.

When my oldest started school I bought my first DSLR camera. My background was in film photography and dark room, so I challenged myself to learn digital photography and photo editing. During this time, my passion for photography quickly changed from a hobby to a business.

Today I enjoy getting to know new people and capturing those important life moments. It would be an honor to be invited into your lives to tell your life stories.
