Leah say:
Clair is a lovely person and was very patient with our little lady who did not always easily cooperate ! However , Clair did manage to capture some lovely pics of Heidi and they will look lovely up on our wall. Clair was very good at communicating before Heidi was born and flexible on dates and times. I shall definitely recommend her to family and friends 🙂


Jo & Jon say:
Clair is such a lovely lady, with so much patience! Olivia, at a week old was very unsettled and screamed most of the time but Clair waited whilst I tried to settle her. We got a few photos but not as many as liked. Clair came back to us the following weekend (which she didn’t have to) and Olivia was a different baby!! Much happier and far more settled. Even if she did wee on Clair’s props! The photos are just beautiful and we are just thrilled with them. Clair was so kind to us all and made Olivia’s first photo shoot most pleasurable. Even if Olivia did scream for most of the first one! I would most definitely recommend Clair and will be having more photos done when Olivia is older. Thanks again Clair xxx

Liz says:
Clair came to our house to take photos of our newborn baby. Before the shoot, Clair was excellent at keeping in touch about when the baby had arrived, and she was flexible at moving the date when the baby was stubborn and a week overdue.

On the day Clair was both professional and friendly, making us feel at ease, and being patient when baby needed feeding or a nappy change. She’s taken some amazing photos of our baby that we will cherish forever. Thank you Clair!


Rose says:
Clair came to our house to take photos of our 5 week old daughter, Freya. We’ve ended up with stunning photos, and even some of the whole family too. Would definitely recommend you Clair, thank you.

I couldn’t have been happier with the photos that Clair took. Lovely person and fantastic photographer. So nice to meet you Clair and you will be seeing us again. I have recommended you to all my friends. Thank you again x


Rachel says:
Thank you Clair for the absolutely beautiful pictures you took of my daughter. I highly recommend Clair and will definitely use her again for photographs in the future. Clair was really pleasant before the day of the photos, on the day and afterwards really making us all feel at ease. Clair has a great eye for capturing really fantastic shots which are showcased in the excellent final pictures. Thank you Clair


Zara says:
Clair is a wonderful photographer and I highly recommend her. She captured the essence of my young daughter perfectly. Five year olds’ have a tendency to pull ridiculous faces when asked to look at a camera however Clair made my daughter feel very relaxed and was able to take some beautiful shots both posed and natural / observational. We will cherish these photos forever – Thank you Clair! x


Sarah says:
I recently had a lifestyle photograghy session at minster beach for my two little children and my three grandchildren, their ages ranged from 7-1 years old with Clair. The children were typical children and would sometimes sit still. Clair was amazing and so patient, she got a lot of wonderful pictures we are so happy with them. Clair has taken our wedding pictures and we have done a couple of studio sittings and a couple at the beach. I couldn’t recommend her enough, thank you again.


Zoe says:
Lovely photos taken of our two boys. Clair was very friendly and professional


Claire says:
Having used Clair as our wedding photographer some years ago we were delighted to have a photo shoot of our son down at the beach. He is only 18 months old so hard to get him to sit still! Clair was very good with him; Which meant she got some great natural shots. We were very pleased.


Tammy says:
Thank you so much for the photos you took of my children. They were great. I will be tell all my friends where to go for their photo shoots

Sarah says:
A massive thank you to Clair for her patience and care on the 10th April at Victoria Park whilst taking photos of my three daughters.

Thank you again and hope everything is ok x love the Kent family xx

Clair took photos of our toddler and newborn, she was very patient and my toddler warmed to her instantly. The photos are great and a wonderful keepsake. Clair is very flexible and works to suit your children.

Paula says:
Clair wasn’t just a typical photographer , she engaged with our daughter and made it fun , I think our daughter would of had her photo taken all day she just loved it , she was quite shy at first but Clair took the time to get to know her first. We liked the fact that Clair used the leaves and Autumn trees to add colour to the family portraits . The photos are gorgeous and we have a wonderful blown up canvas now in our front room , a memory of a special day to cherish, thankyou Clair x

Kelly & Nav says:
We recently had a Family Studio Shoot done with Clair, the photos are always amazing!! Everyone comments on how beautiful they are. Clair is always very professional and makes you feel at ease in front of the camera. Very flexible, works with you to achieve what you want as well as using her own creativity!! We love our photos would highly recommend to anyone 🙂 Thankyou xxx

Kim & Dan says:
Clair photographed our wedding for us and I am so pleased she did. Out photos are just beautiful and Clair listened to what we wanted and achieved it. The wedding book that she put together for us is stunning and I love that it’s different to a traditional photo album. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Clair for any of your photography needs. Thank you Clair, for capturing our day so well ;-P

Jo & Claire says:
Always use Clair for our special occasions. Pictures capture the moment and feel of the occasion. We have also had a studio session. As adults people tend not to have proper photos taken and as we do not have children those opportunities are fewer. Clair has put us at our ease and given us lovely memories to treasure. Thank You Clair, you are a treasure.

Debbie says:
I didn’t know just how gorgeous my Grandson was until I saw the photo’s Clair took in the studio. There were so many perfect prints to choose from which we will cherish forever. Thank you Clair xx

Jodie says:

Had a wonderful studio session with Clair with my 4 year son. Amazing pictures by an amazing photographer. Thank you so much xx

Wanda Meyer says:
Clair is wonderful at capturing my girls’ emotions and essence. With family in South Africa, she has managed each and every time to take photographs that is not only beautiful and amazing but also tender and true. Won’t ever go elsewhere.

Adrian, Claire and Shannon says:

Just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful pictures you took of Shannon. Really can’t wait to get the prints and share them with all our family. A very professional service which we would recommend to everyone and you even made a grumpy teenager smile. Thank you so much Clair.

Leilah and James says:

Patient, friendly, professional, so pleased you took the first official pictures of our precious baby, also that you captured pictures again when she reached 9 weeks old, thank you, would definitely recommend Clair as our Kent Child Photographer.

Clair was amazing for our first shoot of Jenson. Hugely patient with a tired hungry little man lol certainly didn’t feel rushed and she was even happy to add our dog for a family snap! We also have 2 more shoots booked in to capture more precious moments. Must recommend X

Claire says:

We love the photos Clair took of Thomas, even though we couldn’t get many when he was 3 days old as he wouldn’t settle, she was very patient and came back when he was older and managed to get some beautiful photos. I would definitely recommend her and ask her to do more as he and my other son get older.
