“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

My name is Claudia Batichon.  I am a local photographer in the Greenville-Spartanburg area.  I have a Bachelor of Science in Recreation Management, a Master of Science in Sport Management an Education Specialist in Sport Management, and I am currently a Doctoral Candidate writing my dissertation.  I have been a photographer since 2014.  As a wife, mother, educator, and athlete academic coach, I recognize the desire to capture not just portraits, but priceless moments that is very significant to each customer.  Every part of both of my jobs (teaching & photographing) feels like a true blessing because I get to do what I love every single day.  Whether I am photographing a child, family, high school senior, engagement, elopement, or editing, I’m passionate about my work.  I work hard at my craft because giving my customers quality portraits is my number one priority.  The next time you want to hire a photographer, please contact me as I would love to capture your priceless moment through my lens.  I want your photographs to tell a story.  I want your photographs to have a purpose.  I want your photographs to be a lasting memory of love, passion, friendship, and relationships.

"I recently had a family session done by Claudia on a whim. I have used photographers in 3 states to photograph my family and Claudia has stood out as talented and professional.

"I cannot express how pleased I was with this entire experience. The price, communication, energy, and the Effort that Claudia put in to make my session fall exactly into place. My four year old was comfortable, enjoyed working with her, never once fussed, and the entire time we were all full with laughter."  - Haley Holmes

"Our session with Claudia was truly a great experience.  As a fellow photographer, I have high expectations and look for photographers whose style and quality are similar to what I provide to my own clients.  Claudia was very patient with my 2 autistic children and was able to produce some amazing photos.  Turn around time was also amazing!" - Kayla White Rector

"I’m so thankful we came across Claudia’s mini sessions by chance. One look at her website and I knew we needed to look no further. Her work speaks for itself—beautiful! She was so wonderful to work with and you’d never guess our 1 year old cried 99% of our session because we still got gorgeous pictures. You’ll have no regrets. We’ve found our “go to!”- Lauren Johnson

"We loved our session with Claudia! Not only is she very talented, but she’s great in every other aspect that’s important for a photographer; great communication, great with the kids, great with instruction and ideas, amazing turn-around time for the photos, to say a few.
