Ciara hails from Northern California, and was born with a curious mind and a mischievous spirit. She was a strong student, and had aspirations of modeling, until her attentions turned to the other side of the camera. While in high school, she saved up wages from her restaurant job to buy her first real camera, a Nikon F100. Later, after assisting friends at a wedding, she knew that she had found her true calling.
For years, Ciara has drawn inspiration from legendary photographers, including her favorite, Herb Ritts. Drawing from her influences, she developed her own artistry, combining emotion and glamour to create sophisticated images. In addition to the must-have photos, she loves photographing the quiet, unguarded moments between family members and newly married couples.
Along with wedding photography, Ciara is often sought out for her specialty in birth photography, maternity, and boudoir. She enjoys supporting conservationist causes, and has two beautiful sons.
