Clara grew up in Hollywood and has mastered the art of dressing to kill. As much as she gets attention when she walks by, her outing doesn’t cause as much stare as her looks does. The aspiring photographer is unarguably easy on the eye. She launched her own photography website in 2014 and her pictures are primarily male and female nudity as well as self portraits and pictures of her parents who she refers to as her muse. She seems to be a blooming foodie too from her Instagram account.

In an interview, Clara admitted that since she was little, her inclination had always been towards photography. She always walked around with a camera as a child and enjoyed taking photos of things around her. When she clocked 14, she took her passion to the next level and started honing her craft and taking photography classes. She hopes to one day be able to work with Vanity Fair or Vogue. Acting was never for her as many would have expected, Clara would rather be behind the camera and her parents are highly supportive of her choice.
