Amanda Claire & Terry
Working together with a unique dynamic, Terry joined the business her daughter started and they never looked back. Being a woman-owned business is even more special when your mom is your partner.
Amanda Claire started this company after graduating college with a certificate in portrait photography and has over a decade of professional experience, as well as numerous international portrait awards and magazine covers.
I do what I love every day: create gorgeous photographs that capture the true personality of every person in them. I’m equally passionate about seeing those memories properly preserved, so I create beautiful wall art and heirloom albums with those photographs. That’s my vision. A. Claire Vision is my business.
I’m definitely sentimental, and cherish keepsakes, which is probably why I’m a print photographer. Your legacy is important to me, that's why I work so hard to make my clients feel comfortable and confident in front of my camera and preserve that experience with heirloom artwork.
To accomplish my vision and goals I went to college for photography. I then worked as the assistant to the director of photography at VisArts in Rockville, Maryland. A short time later, I was chosen as a youth grant leader teaching traditional darkroom photography to at-risk high school students. The program was a huge success and we were even recognized by the City Counsel. After that, I worked with several world-renowned photographers, and was able to learn a great deal from them. I bring all those years of experience to every single job. I also don’t think you ever stop learning, so I take continuing education whenever I have the opportunity. I think we learn a lot from traveling the world and immersing ourselves in different cultures, so I consider that both my inspiration and education – plus, it’s really fun!
An award winning photographer with over a decade of professional experience, I know how to make you look and feel amazing, contact us now and let me take the best photos you've seen of yourself. I promise you'll love the experience and cherish the results.
