Hello I’m Claire. I specialise in baby and family lifestyle portrait photography in London and the surrounding area.
I can offer you a personalised photography shoot to create beautiful, natural photographs that document the character of your family and daily life. Your shoot can take place wherever you feel most comfortable and relaxed as a family – be it at home or your favourite local park – it’s your choice…
On the day
I’ll spend a weekend morning or afternoon with you for your shoot. I prefer to conduct photoshoots at these times during the day in order to take advantage of the best natural daylight. You can expect a relaxed, informal session during which I’ll put you all at ease and work to capture the spirit of your family. The outcome will be a range of natural and relaxed images, as well as some lightly posed portraits, plus lots of those magical, spontaneous moments.
Producing a beautiful record of a special moment in time for your family to treasure
Your session may include pictures of you snuggling up as a family, a messy mealtime, a venture out into the garden or maybe a walk in the park. I will capture all the little details that make up a narrative; that look in your little one’s eye, the squeeze of a finger, their favourite shoes or a good splash around in a puddle.
I will always meet with you before your session, either in person or on the phone, to discuss your wishes. I will create an ideas board and discuss your interests to make sure you are comfortable on the day and to ensure we capture your desired photographs.
My package prices start at £369 and include:
*pre-session consultation: an informal chat over a cuppa (or on the phone, whichever is easiest for you) to get to know you, plan your session to make sure you are comfortable on the day
* morning or afternoon photography shoot: anything from 2 to 4 hours (I never book more than one shoot a day, so we can take as much time as you need for naps and meal times)
* an online gallery to share images with loved ones
* a minimum of 20 high-resolution retouched digital images for you to download to print and share as you wish. These will be edited in a mix of colour and black and white
* one complimentary 6x8 inch print on beautiful pearl photographic paper
There’s nothing quite like a printed photograph of a special moment to look back on and remind you just how small your little ones were…
Combined photography and album packages start at £465. These include either a bespoke fine art album or lay-flat storybook.
I am also able to provide professional prints on lovely high quality professional photographic paper in a range of sizes on either matte or gloss paper.
Please contact me if you'd like to see my full price list, and I'll send it over.
After spending many a soggy summer in my twenties capturing portraits of musicians at music festivals, I decided to hang up my wellies and focus on a different kind of portraiture photography that feels more personal.
I adore working with different families, taking pictures as well as editing images to create collections that tell a story. I love interacting with little ones, getting down to their level and putting them at ease to make sure you get the best possible pictures.
I was honoured to be a finalist for The Mother Hood Top London Family Photographer Award
While much of capturing beautiful moments between families is to do with feeling, technical knowledge plays an important role too. You can rest assured I know my stuff when it comes to the technical side of things thanks to completing various photography courses and gaining a Distinction level certification on City and Guilds Photo Imaging course.
I’ve also completed specialist baby photography training and am fully up-to-date with safety guidelines and posing techniques, so you can rely on me to perform the honoured task to handle your little ones and to ensure their safety.
Originally from Suffolk, I now live in Balham London with my family. When I’m not taking portraits, I love photographically exploring my local area, and more exotic climes. See more @laceandbobble
