Claire Lejeune
is a photographer and visual artist who splits her time between Los Angeles, Washington DC, and Paris, where she grew up. Being a Parisian in America, her friends took to calling her "baguette". Shortly thereafter, Claire adopted this moniker and is known by many as Lady Baguette. We enjoy Claires style which is bold, but also has a crispness to it that gives it that special polish. It's this aesthetic that has earned her clients including Adidas, Puma, Stella Artois, and more. We have known Claire for a few years and have always ben impressed by her confidence and her hustle. Plus her sneaker game is on point! We are sure that Claire's infectious energy can motivate anyone to follow their dreams. And this is one of the reasons we are glad to feature her in this series.

What is Women In Focus all about?

Welcome to our new series, HEX Presents Women In Focus. This series has 5 episodes, each highlighting a different female artist. We get to hear casual and honest conversation about their stories, challenges, successes, and advice on navigating the photography space as a woman. You may already be familiar with some of these women. Others, not so much. What we can tell you is that these women inspire us and women that we are sure will inspire others.

Historically women have largely had roles in front of the camera, rather than behind it. We are excited to bring you this series as an opportunity for meaningful dialog about why this, and to encourage the movement of female photographers who are changing that narrative.

The series consists of short and shareable segments from 5 female creators we admire, including Natalie Amrossi, Shauna Wade, Elise Swopes, Claire Lejeune, and Enkrypt Los Angeles. These women are at varying career stages, and bring their unique energy and aesthetics. We hope to encourage more female creators to know more about the business of photography, and also to grow as artists in their craft.

We hope you will enjoy watching as they lend their voices to encourage others as we keep Women In Focus.
