kind words

Honestly thank you so much, I’m very much behind the camera and never in front of it – I am in a few childhood pics and fewer adult pics, I really was dreading the thought of needing to mug to a camera for two hours knowing I was going to hate my face in every picture – the opposite is true though, you are so easy to be around, the pics are natural and lovely and frankly my heart aches at how perfect the little one and Phil are in every single shot (and the dogs!  As if you got those to work!!)

Many, many thanks for these they are beautiful!!!  I’m so chuffed with them!  I think there might be a small tear in my eye!  They look amazing, I think I’ll have to think about getting more stuff done as I’m sure these amazing shots are going to boost sales, the products look so stylish!!!  What else can I say???  Cheers Clare, you talented lady!!

LOVE them!  Thanks millions and millions and gazillions.  Can’t believe we have such a lovely group of photos when really it just felt like we had a nice long chat with you!  Will be recommending you to everyone.

CAROLINE – SAM & TOBY’S MUMMY April 2017

 

*5 star all the way!* Clare has an incredible way of understanding what you are looking for from a shoot and spends time tailoring each one for you individually.  She has such a calm friendly manner, which puts everyone at ease and she manages to get the best out of anyone she photographs; be it a newborn, young child, adult or dog in our case!  Absolutely delighted with the two shoots, photos and overall experience we have had with Clare.  We feel quite smug to have found this talented lady!  Simply put, she is amazing at what she does.  We would recommend wholeheartedly.

SARAH – LEO AND LILY’S MUMMY Dec 2016

Thank you so much for the wonderful photographs, they are above and beyond all our expectations. I honestly don’t know how we’re going to choose which gorgeous images to adorn the walls at home. In addition, your service has been exemplary!

RUTH – ESME AND ZACH’S MUMMY Nov 2016

I’ve known Clare about 10 years now, we worked together when she was deputy Picture Editor at heat magazine – I had no idea then that she was going to go out into the world as a photographer herself!  I’m always blown away by how natural, beautifully lit and real her pictures of children are.  The pictures she creates have the ability to make you smile and if I had kids I would be driving them up North to be photographed by her

Clare’s photos of my son Oscar and our family are so beautiful they made me do a little cry.  She really captured his happy little personality and how much we love him.  Our Christmas presents are now all sorted!  Clare made the whole process completely enjoyable.  I cannot recommend her highly enough

POLLY – OSCAR’S MUMMY August 2016

You have me in tears – they are stunning!  Love, love, love them!  You have captured their characters and expressions perfectly. We are thrilled with them.  I can’t thank you enough for fitting us in and processing them so quickly.  We all had so much fun and it’s thanks to you.  Can’t wait to show the kids them tomorrow!

PAM – EMMA, KATE AND TOM’S MUM June 2016

We absolutely love the photos of our family.  Clare takes such lovely natural pictures and you never feel like any of them are staged.  We’ve had two sets of photos taken now and they are both amazing.  Clare has such a great eye for taking the most gorgeous pictures! x

BRONWYN – GEORGIA’S MUMMY June 2016

Hi Clare – Thank You so much.  The pictures are wonderful and we are delighted.  You really have captured Luca beautifully and these are photos which we will treasure forever.

GAIL – LUCA’S MUMMY June 2016

Had a super afternoon with Clare as she photographed my 3 young preschool charges. She is uber talented, professional, friendly & brilliant at what she does. She put the kids at ease & they loved her. Nothing was too much trouble for her & her patience unending with the marauders.  I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for this kind of photography. I can’t wait to see the finished shots. She captured some amazing moments for their parents that they can enjoy forever. Thanks Clare! Xx

“I just wanted to thank you Clare for our fabulous photo shoot. We have some lovely pics and you were amazing with the kiddies! Thank you x”

EMMA – IMMY & OLLY’S MUMMY Feb 2016

“I’ve just been looking at the photos again.  They are really lovely, they have achieved exactly what we wanted, that is to record the extended family for posterity, but more than that we have got some lovely unexpected photos as well!  I haven’t worked out which ones we’re going to enlarge/put on the wall yet, but it will probably be a jumping one of the kids and a jumping one of the adults!  I also like the one of our family group as a picture of the four of us is also a rarity.  Thanks for doing the photos, I would definitely recommend you to anyone who asks! xx
