About Claire

Hey there, it’s so lovely to meet you.   I’m Claire, a Starbucks obsessed, book reader, creative and photograph taker. I started my photographic journey with my dad when I was younger.

Oh those days of film and picking up my little packets of memories from the lab and seeing what magic came back. Happy days. My epiphany however was when my eldest daughter was born and it hit me just how precious photographs and memories are and so I set about making memories of our life and the people I love the most.  

But I also wanted to be able to do this for others too, so I studied, graduated, and that was it, my professional photographic journey started.I live with my fabulous husband Graeme and our two wonderful girls in rural County Durham.

I love baking - aiming to make the perfect scone, but also growing and creating healthy food… thanks to the influences of my lovely Grandma and Jamie Oliver. My favourite place in the world is the lakes where we have made so many happy memories and we can often be found walking, enjoying the stunning countryside and finding fabulous food.   I couldn’t survive without my family, gratitude, pilates and meditation.  I love being inspired by people, nature, music art and my children.

That’s a little bit about me, but I’d love to hear all about the beautiful wedding day you’re planning, gorgeous new arrival, or adorable family.

My Photography

My mission is to be able to provide people with memories to treasure for years to come and share with all their loved ones. I just love what I do – seeing people in love, happy and relaxed and capturing these precious moments. I’m so lucky to be able to share in and capture these occasions as people travel through life. I tell these beautiful stories in a gentle, creative, unobtrusive way, using soft natural light . I love it when people see their images which evoke all the memories and emotions from that time, as if it were just yesterday.
