my name is claire

I am a mother, a wife and a storyteller.

I like to keep things simple.  I enjoy honest conversation, a strong cup of coffee, hanging out the washing in the morning sun, baking scrummy cakes and hearing the sound of my little boy laughing with his Daddy.

I crave the warmth of the sun against my face, love watching the sunrise, exploring foreign shores and I am drawn to those who see beauty in unexpected places.

As your photographer, I want to share with you {the beauty} that I see blooming right in your EveryDay life.

My photography and films are inspired by my love for life and my family.

My favourite photographs are the kind that tell a story about the people in them. The kind of images that make the person looking at them FEEL something.  All unscripted.

From your BigDays I want you to feel joy.  From your EveryDays, I want you to feel warmth.  From your WorkDays, I want you to feel proud.

So if the idea of posing makes you cringe and all you REALLY want is to capture images and films that have meaning, a true sense of yourself and your life, then I’m the lady for you.

Here’s a little film about me!  Ha!  Whoever thought someone would want to make a film about me.  But they did.

A gorgeously fun group of students from Lincoln University wanted to make a documentary about people who document.  And they kindly chose me.

I think they did a fabulous job.  They got a first.  Well done guys.  And now I’m able to share their wonderful film with you.  Not only is it a great bit of work from them, but it so beautifully illustrates everything that I’m about.  So here’s a little snippet of my world!

If you would like me to capture your EveryDay, BigDay or WorkDay, please feel free to call, email or even just text me.  We can have a chat, even meet for coffee, to discuss what shoot you have in mind, and heck . . . even make a new friend!
