‘Here’s the thing about magic: It’s most powerful when it is believed in, whole heartedly’ Chanel French.

I am a Natural Wedding Photographer based in Hemel Hempstead and I definitely believe in magic. Photography is the most amazing and wonderful art.    I know choosing your Wedding Photographer is one of the most important decisions you will make and my creative talents will ensure you relax, have a wonderful day and enjoy your Wedding Photos for many years to come.  So, let me tell your story.   I shoot a limited number of Weddings per year to ensure a professional, and unique approach to every wedding.

I am a  documentary style Story Teller with an Arts background and  tell your wedding story through my images. With over 15 years of wedding experience, I deliver exquisite photos of your special day with a quirky edge & an eye for the comic, touching, and fun moments.  I am friendly, discreet and easy to get along with; devoted to capturing all your amazing moments including the traditional elements of your wedding. Apart from arranging your formal portraits (I promise not to spend too long on these so you can enjoy your guests! ) I will be documenting your wedding behind the scenes and focusing on beautiful photos of the two of you to treasure for a lifetime.  I am also a recommended and trusted wedding photographer for Ashridge House, Latimer House, Shendish Manor, Sopwell House, The Noke Mercure, Notley Tythe Barn, The Kings Arms, Berkhamsted, Putteridge bury, Moor Park, Boxmoor Lodge.

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.

Love a sculpture in a wedding…

I was so lucky when shooting this gorgeous wedding, that the owner of a beautiful garden nearby approached me to ask if I wanted to shoot the bride and groom in her home.

To say the garden was spectacular is no understatement – it was simply gorgeous.  Thanks so much to this lovely lady who opened her home and garden to us!

Woodland Shoot with baby T

So lovely to be able to shoot this gorgeous little baby, 8 months old, in the sunny woodlands of Ashridge with her fab parents (whose wedding I did at Shendish Manor two years ago now)

We had the bluebell wood all to ourselves as it was end of season but no less spectacular. These woods almost have a soporific effect on me as I never fail to leave feeling totally relaxed – does anyone know if bluebells release a calming agent!?

Anyway here’s a few of the photos from the shoot.  If you are interested in booking a shoot with me just email for full FAQ claire@artbyclaire.com

Offer: Creative Session – Timeless Photography

Timeless Photography – for all you black and white arty fans who recognise photography can be an arty and gorgeous and creative and unusual (and I know there’s many of you!); this is aimed at you especially. I wanted to offer something a little different. It’s a black and white only shoot to get those beautiful raw and emotive style images you will treasure a lifetime.  Low level studio lighting, with a focus on feelings, capturing the moment, and a very gentle soft style shooting approach. No props – can you do it?  £150 for a beautiful 30 minute session with unlimited hi res digital photos – yours to keep.

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.

Get in touch for a full FAQ or Gift Voucher info. email claire@artbyclaire.com or text 07951943101.
