My name is Claire and I love taking photographs! I studied photography as part of my degree 20 years ago. Since then I have worked as a graphic designer for major publishing and design companies, as well as a photographer.

My portraits are about capturing personality in a relaxed way. I work in an unobtrusive way to achieve natural images. The majority of my images are unposed so they are photos of you or your child as you are – not how I think you should look. I enjoy taking all kinds of portraits but I absolutely love taking photos of little ones. As a mum I know every child has a special look. That smile or expression that never seems to come out in posed photographs. My aim is to catch this for you.

I feel the best place to get natural images of you or your child is somewhere you feel completely at ease. This could be your home, your local park or somewhere special to you. Basically, you have a morning walk, day out, run round the park, and I’ll tag along with my camera. I am delighted that the majority of families I photograph have asked me to take photos every year or so for them. I love this, to watch your children grow and get to know them and you over the years is an absolute pleasure.

A full photo session will last two to three hours which gives enough of time to get loads of natural images. I offer a mini session which is an hour long. I also offer a day in the life session where I will come and spend a day with you and your family documenting what you get up to.

Photography for your business
Having worked in the design industry as both designer and photographer, I understand the importance of having the right images to promote your business. My images are perfect for on-line stores like Etsy and Not on the High Street, as well as brochures, leaflets and websites. For more information, please visit: www.tandemdesignltd.co.uk
