Meet Claudette

Welcome to CLJ Photography. You have your own tastes, your own passions. I want to capture this, so you can share with the world your uniqueness, personality, sense of style, and pride, through every single photograph.

Allow me introduce myself, my name is Claudette and I’ve called Long Island home my entire life. I have a personal connection with the community. It inspires me, as do the people. It’s why I’ve made it my lifelong home and why I’ve focused the last decade on working with families to capture beautiful images.

I truly love every moment of what I do, because you are unique in who you are, and you allow me into the small piece of your life. In return, I want to help save these memories for you, so you can pass them onto your own children when they are older, with your parents, with your friends, and anyone else you want to present the photographs too. Even if the pictures are just for you, you’ll have these incredible moments saved forever.

As a family you are unique. Whether you just received the beautiful news of a coming child, or your children are beyond the newborn years and want to capture each moment deserves to be captured and cherished.

There’s nothing like the glow of a mother as her body changes, the joy that bursts from your skin as you hold your newborn, or how your baby develops in just the first year of life.

Each and every one of these moments is truly special. If you could you’d probably grab on and hold it tight, so you could experience the moment forever. That’s possible with my photography. I want to capture that twinkle in the eye of your infant. I want to help save the imagination of a one-year-old as they smash their very first birthday cake.

I also provide a number of print and display options. You have access to digital proofs, but you can also purchase canvas prints, albums, wall art, metal prints and more. There’s a package and a print option that is sure to work for you.

So if you’re interested in a personalized photo session, I’m here for you. Please, give me a call or email me and let’s plan your session.

“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”

- Ansel Adams
