Meet the founder

Hi, I'm Claire!

I love working with women entrepreneurs who have found their path and purpose in life.

I've also reinvented myself time and time again and built various businesses around doing what I love. Photography has always been my big passion and core of what I do, but I have also dabbled in graphic design, web design, videography and coaching.

I was born & raised in South Africa then spent 20 years of life living all over Europe in cities such as Paris, London, Vienna & Mallorca. I studied photography in Paris, developing my own film and spent countless hours studying light at the Louvre Museum.

I then took the leap and become self-employed when I was living in Vienna and became a renowned wedding photographer, photographing just under 300 weddings all over the world. I lived in Vienna for 12 years and consider it my second home.

My husband then swept me off my feet & brought me to the USA, and I now call California my home.

When I first launched Inspired Stock Shop, it stemmed from the desire to give women entrepreneurs easy access to unique, fresh, modern, spiritual, and beautiful photos that truly connected them to their powerful messaging. 

As a personal branding photographer, I have had the opportunity to work with many professional women who have used my services so they could have high-quality photos that really resonated with their target audience and most importantly, themselves. 

When I started to study the stock photography market, I felt like something was missing. There seemed to be a gap in many of these stock photo libraries. Don’t get me wrong...the pictures were high-quality, feminine, and beautiful...but one thing seemed to be missing: authentic emotional connection. None of the photos aligned with energy or told me a story.  Right at this moment, I knew this was exactly what I was meant to birth and create.

The Inspired Stock Shop was created to bridge the gap of inspiration, emotional connection, and online branding. Every photo and gallery is carefully placed to evoke those same feelings for my members and all who come into contact with their visual imagery. ⠀

Welcome to my community!
