Hello and welcome to Claire Victoria photography

I’m Claire, an outdoor family photographer based just outside of Bristol, UK. I specialise in natural, unposed family photography that captures the unique spirit of your family in their natural environment, be that frolicking in the forest or dashing about on the beach. As a mum to four gregarious boys who are growing up all too fast, I delight in capturing special moments and authentic memories to treasure as they get older.

Natural, unposed family photos

My approach to family photography is relaxed and spontaneous – no brightly lit studios here. During your session, I aim to capture the distinct personality of each family member in an uncontrived way, preserving the realness of your everyday life. All photography sessions are individually tailored to the needs of the family, within the home or at a natural location of your choosing.

Newborn photography

There’s no minimum age limit – babies and family pets are welcome too! In addition to family portrait photography, I also offer natural newborn photography sessions, capturing your new son or daughter in the precious first weeks of life. These sessions usually take place at home, so we can go at your own pace.

Nature and wellbeing

Ever since my rural upbringing on a farm in Kent, I’ve been deeply interested in nature and its effects on our wellbeing, particularly when it comes to mindfulness. As well as being a family photographer, I organise wellbeing walks and family nature days where you can experience the calming benefits of mindful photography in the great outdoors, most often at Kingsweston Estate and Old Church Farm in Bristol.

Based in Bristol and beyond

I cover the whole of Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Bath, Somerset, Wiltshire and the Cotswolds, but am happy to travel all over the UK and even internationally. Take a look at my portfolio and get in touch for a relaxed conversation to discuss what you’re looking for. I look forward to hearing from you!
