DSC_0222Hi, I’m Claire. I love God and His creation! Photography is a way for me to enjoy all that He has made, and I hope that you can enjoy His work through these pictures too. Flights of Grace is representative of the journey that God takes me on each day… Like a butterfly’s carefree, graceful, and powerful flight,  these pictures represent the grace that God shows me each step of my journey. And me? Well, I love butterflies best. I could not live without my family, my friends, and prayer. I am a recent graduate from the University of Georgia, and I majored in Ecology. I deal with chronic illness that sometimes makes life hard. I like chocolate, purple, and walking. I have a compassionate heart too. In fact, most people notice that about me first. My goal each day is for God to use me to encourage those around me, so maybe this blog will do just that.

“The only way to live a truly remarkable life is not to get everyone to notice you, but to leave noticeable marks of His love everywhere you go.” -Ann Voskamp
