Hello and thank you for visiting my website.?
My name is Clair and live in Ashford, Kent. I have loved children of all ages my entire life. I got my first film camera when I was about 7. I’m the eldest of 4 and my Husband is the youngest of 4. We got married in September 2011 at the Little Silver in Tenterden. We were part time Wedding & Portrait photographer’s before my horse riding accident in September 2012.
Upon recovery, and after a lot of advice, I decided to specialise in one field of Photography, I chose Newborn & Baby Portrait Photography, part time. My Husband edits my pictures for me.
I love children and my camera, so its a perfect combination.
My heart swells with pride when I see one of the pictures I have taken on a Facebook page and used as a profile picture. I am also a people person (and kiddie magnet my sister says), skills I think as valuable as being good with a camera.
We haven’t any children of our own, but I have lots of children in my life including Nephews, Nieces, Cousins, Godchildren and many more.
I don’t have a Studio from which to base my portrait sessions, instead I visit the Newborn/baby’s home, within a 30 mile radius of Ashford, Kent. I take my co-ordinated props with me (backdrops, baskets, wraps, hats and hair ties etc).
My full time job has changed many times, largely based in London until just before my accident, coincidentally. I worked for organisations such as TfL, KPMG, a few merchant banks, Enron before it went belly up, my first job in London was with a Publishers. Mainly in HR, but also Unit Trust’s and Financial Control. Now I’m a Production Information Assistant in Dover.
I find it truly inspiring to be part of and record a New baby’s start in life, capturing memories to last a Lifetime.
