As a family photographer I specialise in Pregnancy, Newborns & Family Portraits. Newborn Photography is such a passion.  I adore these shoots so let me know when your little one is on its way as best time to capture them is within the first two weeks. I work either in my studio & offer at home shoots with a variety of props, blankets and baskets. As well as family photographs (which are often taken outdoors in a rural setting if possible) I do bespoke Lifestyle Business Shoots which covers website head shots to a complete appraisal of your business and self image.

Welcome to the Newborn Baby Sessions

Hello and welcome to the Newborn Baby Sessions

I shoot little newbies either in my studio in Hemel Hempstead or in the comfort of your home. They are considered newborns up to the age of 2 months and ideally they come within the first two weeks of birth when they naturally curl up into little balls.

My style is relaxed, friendly, and reassuring.  I know having your newborn photographed so soon after giving birth is a big thing in itself, so please rest assured I will do everything to make the experience as stress free as possible.  Need to have a pause, no problem.  It is all to be expected photographing these little ones.  If they cry too don’t worry! I get asked this all the time, however in an hour we have plenty of time to photograph your little one.  I work in a natural style, only doing what your baby feels comfortable with.  Here’s what to expect: All the little details will be done for you ; tiny hands and toes, close ups of their faces. Then your baby styled in a wrap (lots of colours to choose from) and snuggled in a basket.  Feel free to bring favourite teddies/baby scans and any other accessory you wish to incorporate.   Post production editing and unlimited hi res digital photos for you to keep plus a beautiful online gallery to share with friends and family. £200 all inclusive. Canvas/prints and albums all available too.

A word about engagement shoots…

I just did my first engagement shoot of 2019 at Shendish Manor which is the venue this couple will be getting married at later in the year. It was a misty morning before the sun came up and they brought their young children to be photographed for part of the shoot too.  I always keep my engagement shoots to about 30 minutes because realistically this will be the approximate time you will have post ceremony and pre wedding breakfast for the two of you.  I also find doing the shoot at your venue really helpful because not only do you get to know your venue intimately, it can really help battle nerves on the big day because you are already familiar with your photo route.

Here’s a little review from the happy pair…

From Claire & Craig : ‘Ohhh so exicting!! Can’t wait. Yes glad we had engagement shoot highly recommend and definitely help us feel more confident around the camera! Thanks for your help and we can’t wait to see all the photos 🙂 x ‘

So if you have not yet got round to booking your engagement shoot please do.  They really are fab and fun and will definitely help you relax more on your big day.  You can also use the photos for your wedding invitation too.

If you want more details just email me claire@artbyclaire.com

One man, one girl, two crazy dogs and snow!

Soooo this was the most amazing fun shoot with Katie and Daniel, Ted and Maggie (the dogs) we had so much fun I totally loved it and we were blessed with the snowy backdrop up at Whippendell Woods.  I love including pets in a family portrait shoot because and yes this is crazy – they are so unreliable!!! and yes this is what makes it so much fun.  So long as you relax and let me keep shooting, I promise to deliver something good -even if it is stupendously funny or ridiculous – I had Dan throwing sticks and jumping over logs to get a dog action shot but instead looks like he’s an extra for Mission Impossible – had to laugh when saw those pics.  Anyway great morning together and can totally recommend Whipppendell as a location for family/pet shoots too!
