Unique, Fun and Vibrant Family Photography
Hello, I’m Claire and I believe in simple family photography and capturing those honest moments of everyday life. As a mum of four I know how busy life can be and as mums we forget to take the photo, print the photos and get in the photo. My passion for photography and history inspired me to not only capture my growing family and our everyday moments and memories but I want to share my skill with you and capture photos of your family too.
I believe that photography is an amazing way to document our family history and I believe it is really important to capture family photos and have these memories feature in our homes. How do you feel when you spot a smiley face on a wall? It instantly boosts your wellbeing and makes you recall a memory. This is good for the soul!
Natural, unposed family photos
I work with families in two ways. I come to your home and capture simple honest everyday moments and I also love to join families on nature adventures too. I share a gallery of your family photos with you after the experience and then you select which photos you’d like to keep on USB or have framed for the home.
My family sessions are relaxed, calm and we go with the flow. You and your children are free to play, run and have fun or bake, relax and chill out. There are no restraints or rules. I simply capture you all being you. Individual personalities and cheeky characters are all welcome. This is the blessing of documentary photography. We are celebrating our differences. We are capturing everyday moments and making memories.
Based in Bristol and beyond
I am based just outside out of Bristol, UK but love to travel so no where is off limits. If you’re looking for a photographer who will capture beautiful honest and simple family photography and keep everyone happy and calm get in touch.
Nature family photography experience
“In to the Wilderness” was born out of my love for nature and my belief that nature play and child led play is key to children’s health and wellbeing.
I love to get families outdoors, in to nature and enjoying quality family time. I will join you on a family walk, a trip to the beach or any other nature adventure where I will capture beautiful photos of you all embracing the outdoors. These are the moments that make memories.
If this sounds like something your family will enjoy, have a look at my “In to the Wilderness” package.
Photography for wellbeing community events
Alongside my passion for photography, I have a passion for nature. I grew up on a farm and my interest in nature stems from a rural upbringing. Since moving my children and family to the country two years ago we have taken easily to a slower pace of living and have taken notice of the small details of the nature around us. Simple things such as a sunset and listening to the birds first thing in the morning have become part of our everyday and I now love to share my love for nature and the positive effects on our families health and wellbeing with other mums and families too.
One way of doing this is through running events for mums once a month at Kingsweston Estate in Bristol. I know as a mum and an entrepreneur myself that both of these roles can sometimes be lonely and therefore I love to bring mums together to connect and create through nature based activities. I organise photography wellbeing walks using mindful photography techniques to encourage people to slow down and connect with nature as well as running other nature based events through collaborations with other nature based businesses to bring people together to connect and create.

Newborn and at home photography
I also love to work with families in the home capturing your style, your everyday moments and the love and connection between your family. I simply come to your home, blend in to the background and capture you being you.
This is your private space where you relax and can be truly you. These photos are special for this reason. A memory isn’t just about people but your home is somewhere that reflects who you are as a person and family.
An at home session is perfect to capture a special birthday or the arrival of a new little person in to your life. Newborn sessions are really relaxed and informal where you invite me in to your home and I capture natural photos of your family and newborn coming together for cuddles and enjoying your new arrival. The perfect time is when your baby is five to fourteen days old but any age is possible and I will capture your new son or daughter in the precious first weeks of life. We go at your pace and rests for mum and baby are always welcome.

Personal branding photography
I have a passion for inspiring others to share their authentic self and I also work with businesses and brands to do just this. I offer a “Day in the life” business brand sessions to capture your everyday working day and showcase the true identity of the person behind the brand. If you’d like me to document your working day, event or workshop get in touch.
Documentary photography is a fantastic way to build up a bank of images for you to share with your followers on social media or website and to showcase your skill, the behind the scenes, your everyday life and your true self at work. Invite me along to a workshop or client meeting to capture you in action and share your passion.
I love to collaborate with nature based or health and wellness based businesses for wellbeing events. Why not invite me along to your workshop and ask me to document you doing your thing and your attendees engaged and inspired.
Your customers need to see you to feel connected to your brand.
