- I would recommend this business
We’ve used Claire 7 times in total now, for 3 maternity photo shoots, 3 newborns shoots and 1 cake smash. Every session Claire has made us feel really comfortable and welcome and she is always professional and knows exactly what she’s doing with the babies. The results from all the shoots have been amazing

Claire is the most patient and fantastic photography we have had. We have gone back and forth every year to have our kids photographs taken and she has been absolutely gergoeus and patient with us . Her photography and angling and posing is so detailed. I am grateful we found her.
Claire has done lots of shoots for our family including our wedding. She is so friendly and instantly puts our two daughters at ease. Her photos are always stunning and have given us lovely memories to look back on. We will definitely be visiting Claire again in the future!
We have been coming to Claire since our little boy was born 3 years ago. When he was born we had to be rushed to Birmingham Childrens and although his discharge date was after the normal newborn photography time period, Claire worked well with us all to get those perfect newborn type pictures we wanted. She was able to calm and comfort our little boy better than anyone else we knew (even us) and we have been unable to stop going back. Her photos always come back beautiful and I love seeing the huge variety or props and effects she can use.
As our son has aged, his personality has become a little more difficult as he has some social anxiety and sensory issues but Claire always manages to put us all at ease and get the most beautiful pictures out of him. It has been fabulous seeing Claire's skills continue to grow and we are looking forward to our next (probably the 5th?) Photo shoot :) thanks as always
Claire has a unique ability to put her subjects at ease and the quality of her photographs are a cut above the competition. The way she works with newborns is both delicate and professional with the results speaking for themselves. We highly recommend Claire as a newborn photographer.

Hi there, im Claire, welcome to my family, newborn, baby, child, and family website, I'm an award winning and Craftsman level portrait photographer in South Birmingham here you will find all the details to book a session with me. I haven been a newborn and baby specialitst photographer for 8 years, and have shot weddings for almost 12 years. Newborn Photographer Birmingham, Wedding photographer Birmingham, Newborn Photographer Birmingham.
My sitter sessions are for babies that can sit unaided but who arent yet walking, this can be anytime from 5 to 12 months, these are wonderful sessions where we can capture those wonderful expressions and changing features, they grow so much in that first year its a lovely age to shoot. Sessions usually can last around an 1 hour. I allow time for some outfit changes for baby. If baby is unsettled and needs time for cuddles, milk or smacks I do allow a little longer, however once I have achieved a varied gallery of poses (including family and sibling images if required) the session will end.

I have a custom built, heated, insulated, double glazed and insured studio that is built in the grounds of our family home, this is a separate building that is fenced off from the home with its own outside area, it also has bathroom and baby changing facilities it is not overlooked an is private for feeding baby or getting changed. The studio is big enough for family groups, portraits, newborns, children and many more and I have a variety of backdrops to use to suit the style you're looking for.
I have a beautiful custom built studio in the South of Birmingham by Longbridge town centre my Maternity sessions are shot in my studio or close to my studio outdoors if thats your preference. The sessions are very relaxed and I am entirely led by your preferences, if you prefer the more posed session and glamourous shots I have gowns and props and can will talk you through all the posing, if you prefer your own clothes and a very simple shoot that is also perfectly fine. Maternity shoots are the one kind of shoot where mums-to-be feel very different, your bodies have changed, I know all the best lighting and angles to bring out the best, I also edit and remove anything that pregnancy has changed that you dont want in the images, everything from puffy ankles and wrists to stretch marks, spots and skin changes, I even had one lady with a beautiful round perfect shaped belly who on the day of the shoot had a baby who decided to move very akwardly for the entire shoot, making her tummy appear square, this of course I can fix (Maybe keeping one in for memories) If you require.
