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.

In light of the Covid 19, I just wanted to talk about ways of staying positive and practical ways I can help. With more of us working at home than ever and the possibility of school closures this does actually offer up some possibilities too.

All done at arm’s length of course and in nature or over the phone!

Your assistance also helps small businesses like mine stay afloat during what is an incredibly difficult time too as every booking means so much and is hugely appreciated.

Even a purchase of a Gift Voucher (you choose the amount) would be extremely helpful and can be used at a later date so do bear it in mind and still makes a fab present and is valid for a whole year.

In the meantime if you are thinking of setting up a new business or a second line of income during this time and want  a fab set of portraits; or you find that the family is finally altogether for a bluebell/family portrait, or you want stock images for use on your social media account, because let’s face it you will be online more than you ever were, or you have time to finally work out how to use your camera and want to be outdoors, then  I am offering the following:

  1. Brand Identity Photography –Portraits – normally £250 – now £200 for one hour outdoor shoot. Great for setting up your own business even if you are not yet planning to launch it – do the ground work now while you are ‘working from home’
  2. Brand Identity Mentoring 1:1 sessions over the phone (or facetime if preferred) -normally £150 reduced to £100 for an hour.  A fantastic way to pick my brain and streamline your business with helpful tips and critique of your business.  Monday to Friday and evenings only.
  3. Use my ever growing Stock Images Library to aid your social media profile and keep you looking super cool. Images from £2.50 or discounts for multiple bundles. I’ve got some fab images you can use as overlays too.  Please let me know if there are specific images you need a shot of as I have my studio and can set up individual shoot requirements.  Now more than ever you need to keep a strong social media presence if only to reassure people you are still in business.  Don’t let that side of your business slide.
  4. Bluebell and family Portraits outdoors – bluebells blossom around mid to end April to mid to end May. Or any other outdoor family shoot session available and considered. A fab way to bring the family together albeit at a distance. Mini Session 30 minutes £100.
  5. Photography 1:1 mentoring – book a 1:1 outdoor mentoring session in the woods for someone going nuts being at home all day! £100 for an hour in the woods and half hour discussing how to edit your photos.

Stay safe everyone and do contact me if you have any upcoming shoots or anything else you would like to discuss.

Thank you Claire

Today’s engagement shoot at Latimer House with Chris and Claire was so much fun – literally laughed our way around the grounds as you can see.  Such a  great way to get to know each other and find our favourite spots for the big day. Both of them said they didn’t know what to do or how to stand/pose for photos – generally when I say laugh hysterically at each other like you have just said the funniest thing does the trick… A drizzly and grey day but totally the best!  Well done you two, and for conquering your fear of being photographed.

Hope you enjoyed it guys – your amazing online gallery and slideshow is on its way to you now #latimerhouse #latimerweddings #deverehotels #devere  #chenies #chenieswedding

Hello there let me introduce myself #meetthemaker .  I have just started a small Creative Women in Business meet up group at The Kings Arms in Berkhamsted for so many reasons which I will try to list below.

If you are interested the next date is Tuesday 7th April at 9.30am – 10.30am.

It’s an extremely informal meet up – bring your cards by all means but come sit and chat and support like minded women who have set up their own business as a Creative and Entrepreneur. So far we have had two meet ups and they have been so relaxing and supportive above all else.  Here’s how a typical meet up has developed – we arrive, we get coffee, we sit close to the gorgeous fire, we chat about everything under the sun including work of course but also life, then we hug and go home (maybe no hugging now though!) And generally feel so much better.  It’s been fab…..  We learn something about each other and recognise we are not alone in this crazily ambitious project called ‘working for ourselves’.

I heard of an American group not dissimilar and they had been meeting for nine years and been through business, life, marriage, divorce but the over riding factor which kept them going was meeting and supporting each other in all areas of life. Through chatting, women relax and unwind and talk business in very round about ways.  We don’t offer specific tips to cope with small businesses but what I have found is a wealth of information which has unexpectedly been flung my way because everyone feels comforted by the supportive presence of others and most of all I have left feeling what an incredible bunch of women  – all doing what I do!

So if you would like to come and sit by the fire, drink coffees and mingle.  Sharing ideas and meeting other creative women in business then this group is definitely for you.

It really is a friendly and sociable get together for all women in business to meet from all walks of life.

RSVP if you wish to attend: claire@artbyclaire.com and see you there by the fireplace.
