My name is David Cluff, photographer and consultant. Years ago I had a dream to share my story through photography and a website. Navigating all the options was overwhelming and after trial and error, I found tools that work to tell a story. My goal here is to help capture those family memories and high school senior moments through photography. I also provide marketing consulting on how to build a website with Squarespace, develop email marketing strategies, create presentations that will blow your audience away and how to get started with telling that story you have been itching to share.
My story is that I lost all my hearing overnight at age six due to the CMV virus. Six months after that devastating morning, I got my first cochlear implant and a new chapter began. It is interesting how my perspective of life has changed since that morning. I never thought I would end up dreaming about hearing with two ears. At age 14, that dream came true.
The first time you hear is pretty magical and special but so is the ability to hear each and every day! My wife and I have two little boys and baby girl whom we adore. Something about hearing them say "Daddy or dada" or my oldest saying, "watch this!" is a miracle to me. While being able to hear with a cochlear implant is amazing, there is also a part of me that lives in between two worlds. The deaf and the hearing.
Life is Beautiful
