Unique, Fun and Vibrant Family Photography
Hello, I’m Claire, a documentary photographer based just outside of Bristol, UK. I specialise in capturing fun, unique, simple and honest family photography. I love to capture beautiful moments of everyday life, the real and raw moments of family life focusing on the love and connection within your family.
Natural, unposed family photos
My approach to family photography is relaxed and spontaneous.. During your session, I aim to capture each individual, their unique character and the love of your family. All photography sessions are individually tailored to the needs of the family, within the home or at a natural location of your choosing.
Nature family photography experience
My mission is to encourage families outdoors and in to nature. I love to capture families outdoors as I believe there are so many fantastic benefits to each individual’s health and wellbeing of spending time outdoors. Children flourish, their imaginations run wild and they naturally connect with the nature around them. Adults absolutely love the freedom of walking amongst nature and the outdoors naturally helps everyone to relax, connect with each other and slow down. I naturally capture beautiful photos of your family at ease and having fun.
If this sounds like something your family will enjoy, have a look at my “In to the Wilderness” package.
I also love to work with newborns. The baby stage was always my favourite (possibly why I have four gorgeous boys) and now I love to capture the new baby in your life. This is a really relaxed and informal session 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.
Nature and wellbeing
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 however over the past few years I have come back to my roots and realised the importance of nature for my own wellbeing and for my families wellbeing. 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.
One way of doing this is through running events for mums and entrepreneurs 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 and entrepreneurs 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.

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.
Based in Bristol and beyond
