Hi! I’m Claire, and you guessed it-I love to take photos! So much so I’ve made a career out of it.

Let me firstly start by saying a huge ‘Thank You’ for taking the time to browse my website, and secondly wanting to know a bit about little old me.

Originally from Leicestershire, I now live in South West London with my husband and our little boy who are the absolute loves of my life. I have always loved photography and a few years ago decided to jack in the day job and try my hand at as a full-time photographer. I apply the passion and love that I have always had for photography into every wedding that I do and think I have the best job on the planet! I love meeting new people and finding out about them and I think, or hope, that this relaxed and laid-back approach comes across in my work.

Interesting-or not so interesting-facts about me:

  • In my former ‘office life’ I was a brand and marketing manager for Marks and Spencer.
  • My son is my P.I.C
  • I LOVE traveling and completed one of my life’s ambitions to travel to 30 countries before the age of 30.
  • I am 5ft 7…I think…
  • I love steak and red wine. Previous travels to Argentina were a big hit. Even on a backpacker budget.
  • I am an auntie to 4 gorgeous nephews.
  • I started skiing when I met my husband and now have 5 days ski experience to date.
  • If I could have one super power I would be able to speak any language in the world, I have not been gifted with ‘the ear’ for foreign languages.
  • I can do a good cart wheel.
  • We are currently renovating our first home together-it’s taking a while!
  • I got married in May 2017 to my amazing husband Ewan and quite simply, it was the best day ever. Photography courtesy of the amazingly talented Guy Collier.

I was a brand and marketing manager for a number of years for ‘not just any…’ company, but fell out of love with the corporate world. I wasn’t happy and was suffering as a result. In a particularly bad period at work I came one day and my then fiancé told me to hand my notice in. Just like that. So I did, the very next day. Crazy really but it was the best thing I ever did as it led me to here.

I have always been slightly obsessed with taking photos, at my Mum and Dads house I still have albums upon albums of photographs from when I was a kid. All of my pocket went on buying films and having them developed, I kid you not! Thankfully now in my own house my hard drive is a lot more space efficient. Sorry Mum and Dad…

I became a mum last year and wow what a rollercoaster that has been! He is by all accounts the most amazing little person and it’s such a privilege being by his side as he discovers the world. Of course I wouldn’t be able to do it all without the other half of my team, my husband. The most patient man alive. Our lives have significantly changed over the last year and we may not have as many nice dinners out together or visit foreign countries anywhere near as often but we still have the absolute best time together. When it is the three of us then I really am in my happy place. Cheesy? Absolutely. But cheese is my all time favourite food. That and steak. And strawberries.

Feel like you want to ask me anything else? Ask away…
