HI, I'M CLARE, AND I NEVER REALLY KNOW WHAT TO SAY HERE.I mean, if I tell you that I love ice-lattes, have a sort of mild phobia of sandwiches (no, really), and am a mother to one wild-child, and one tiny-tot, it might be vaguely interesting to you, but is it going to make you want to hire me as your photographer? Likely not. Especially the sandwich thing.
What I can tell you is that if you're looking for a photographer to take studio pictures with plain white backgrounds and forced smiles, I am not the photographer for you. What I do, and what I want to do for you, is to take a little snippet of your life, and show you the beauty in it. I'll capture the light in your toddlers first curl. I'll capture you as a couple soaking in your newborn's first few weeks. I'll even capture your 3 year old picking his nose, if he does it in pretty light.
I'll freeze time for you, in the most beautiful of ways. I'll give you memories that you didn't even know you needed. The gap toothed-smile, the way they twirl their hair around their finger, the look you get when you smell your newborn's head. Those things need to be captured, because before long, that era will have passed and you'll have forgotten it before you've even remembered it.
If you're interested to find out more about what a Life, Styled sessions with me is really like, just click here. (Synopsis: It involves your family, your home, a little bit of direction from me, lots of fun, and a whole lot of beautiful photographs to keep forever.)
And because I'm British, and therefore naturally awful at selling myself, you might want to read some of my clients' ridiculously kind words about me here.
And so, I'll leave you with the thought that if you want beautiful pictures of your family, as they are, right now, whether that's just you and your bump, or you and your family of ten, get in touch.
