MOTHERHOOD

You deserve to exist in your family photographs...

These sessions are incredibly important to me and getting Mums 'in the frame' is something I am very passionate about. As Mothers we are all too often behind the camera; we take thousands of photos of our children to document every moment of their childhood but the person that is often missing from our family story is us.

I believe that every Mother should have special, heartfelt photographs of her with her children- not just for us to look back on when they have grown up, but also for our children to see that we were there with them every step of the way. 

 

My aim is to capture the love and connection between you and your child/children and to show you just how much they adore you. In years to come I want you to look back at your images and remember exactly how it felt when they were small enough to snuggle on your lap, how you used to hold them close and smell their hair or how they would roar with laughter when you tickled them. 

Kind words...

 

"...Claire has a vision, to get us Mums out from behind our smartphones and in the pictures rather than taking them. As M and I lolled around the garden, chatting with Claire, I realised a couple of things.

 

First, M doesn’t give a sh1t that I am constantly telling myself to be on a diet, he doesn’t care that I have grey hairs and laughter lines. He just loves me. Second, Claire is so clever I didn’t even realise she was taking photographs.

 

Ladies, we are enough. We are great friends, great parents, great aunts, great cousins, great godmothers. Time to stop identifying our perceived faults and enjoy being us and I thank Claire for giving me a brief glimpse of that this evening...."
