Snow at Shendish Manor

Whenever it snows like this I am reminded of this lovely couple whose wedding was surrounded by thick snow at Shendish Manor – totally magical and loved this shot especially.   Stay safe everyone!217

Family Portrait Shoot

It was so lovely to meet this little chubby bundle of joy especially as I had photographed his parents wedding two years earlier… It is so fantastic when a couple bring me their new baby to photograph for a family portrait, so I had a lot of fun with this little chap.

Here’s just a few photos..

Business Portfolio Headshots 2019

If you are thinking of tidying up your website/portfolio then the start of 2019 is the time to do it.

Wouldn’t it be great to have access to multiple portraits so you can change your ‘look’ and keep fresh and current plus look fantastic of course too.  Never underestimate what your client thinks when they click on your website profile…. It pays to look like you care too!

I work on a cost basis of £80 per person (with up to two background changes and two top changes)

If more than one person is booking let me know.

Discount available for multiple bookings

Each session is approximately 15 minutes per person at a location of your choice/or in my studio with up to 20 headshots/full length per person.

Plus Post production edit and retouching.

Password protected web gallery for viewing and sharing with friends.

*Plus travel to location fee depending on location.


ArtbyClaire Portrait Sessions 2019

Just to let you know that in 2019 I am offering one photo shoot only.

It’s one price, one shoot, up to one hour and unlimited photos provided in both colour and a duplicate set in black and white.

The reason is simple.

I can really concentrate on getting the best portraits of you without rushing.  And trust me anything less than an hour with toddlers/babies/families is a rush.

So I want to offer you the very best, and this way a shoot up to one hour long will do that.

And here’s the best bit – it will only cost £200 plus you can either choose my studio or a location of your choosing.  This is extremely competitively priced.

However, business portfolio headshots will remain the same £80 for 15 minute shoot.

And children’s Christmas Shoots will remain at a whizzbang amazing price so don’t worry!

Can’t wait to ‘shoot’ you all this year.

Gotta love an autumnal wedding…

It’s one of my favourite times of year and I was asked to be Glenn & Ellis’s wedding photographer yesterday at St Albans registry office ….. They were really anxious about being photographed and wanted a small wedding with a few close family and friends – proving that small is often quite beautiful!

And what an amazing setting for photos; St Albans registry office is really quite wonderful – and impressive too.  So just as the light was fading around 5pm I got some stunning photos of the lovely couple….  if ever you are wondering what season to get married in then I totally recommend autumn… oh the leaves!
