Meet the


Hi there!

I'm Clarice Hendel, the photographer of Studio Cee Photography.

I've always had a love for the arts. I studied graphic design in college and was an art director for many years before freelancing as a designer. I enjoyed working for myself and creating printed pieces for many of the Orange County ad agencies. After having children I put all my time and efforts into caring for them. Taking a lot of photos of them was part of it. That is when I began my photography journey. When I had my second child I hired a newborn photographer to capture him at 8 days old. At the time it was one of the most amazing things I had seen. It intrigued me and sparked my desire to someday pursue this type of art. I spent many years working on perfecting my craft and will continue to work on growing as a photographer. I truly enjoy working with newborns and that is where my heart lies. There is something about the pureness and fragility of the newborn stage that tugs at my heart strings.

I currently live with my dear husband and two children in Laguna Niguel, California. Here is where I work, play and hang out with my family, dog and two cats. A very full house. 

I am originally from Hawaii but have lived most my life in Southern California.  My favorite place on earth is Kauai. That's where I love to spend our family vacations. I always feel so rejuvenated after visiting the islands.

RANDOM FACTS about ME:  My favorite color is sea green. A few months ago it was lavender. Who knows what it will be tomorrow? I love chocolate and am also allergic to it, but I can't really help myself so I indulge. I love to hear my children giggle. I'm a twin and my husband is also a twin. I have never had a cavity.

Well that's about it for now.  Thank you for stopping by!
