Welcome, I'm so glad you are here! If you are anything like me, you love your family and making special memories with them. As a mom of 2 small children, I understand how fleeting time can be. My job as your portrait photographer, is to help you preserve these moments so you can treasure them for a lifetime. I absolutely love my job!
With close to 15 years as a Toronto newborn and family photographer, I would say my style is a mixed between posed (think photos you can send to grandma) and lifestyle (photos that show your family’s unique personality). Whether you choose joke around and be silly for your session or soak up all the cuddles, I’m here for it. I treat all my clients like we are family and I only want the best for my family.
hen it comes to your newborn or family session , my goal is for you to have a fun, relaxed experience that produces beautiful artwork for your home and memories to last a lifetime.
I know not everyone loves having their portrait taken. Heck even I feel all awkward when I have my photo taken if I'm not being guided. So do not fear! I will guide you every step of the way. From location to wardrobe I will offer my guidance and support. When we have our session, I will be making sure you are in that good light and prompting you the whole time. I will probably act like a fool in front of your children too! Having two children of my own, I know how fast the time goes with them and how important it is to capture all the special memories.
I have had a camera in my hands for decades. I was the kid in highschool who brought her camera to every outing and occasion. In my early 20's I took a photography course where I got to develop my own film and I was hooked. For close to 15 years I have been photographing tiny newborns, chubby babies and amazing fun families. It's truly my dream job!
Over the years I have taken many workshops and online courses to make sure I am always learning and developing my craft. From newborn safety, to technical aspects to the latest fart jokes, I've got all the bases covered.
Claire is a fantastic photographer. She has taken newborn and family photos for us over the past 6 years. She takes such natural and beautiful photos. and is great with babies and toddlers alike. My children never sit still for pictures but somehow she always manages to capture the perfect shot! I highly recommend Claire to anyone looking for a newborn or family photographer.

Claire took some absolutely beautiful photos of our new family. She has such a lovely way with little ones and is so patient, relaxed, gentle and she really took her time with us to take some beautiful pictures. She also has an amazing eye, she really is very creative and can work with whatever space you have available to create intimate, natural photos (we have a tiny 2 bedroom in the city, so I was initially a little worried that we didn’t have the “right” setting for beautiful photos, but she took absolutely gorgeous photos, both inside and outside of our home).
She is extremely service-oriented as it was clear that main goal was to make sure we were comfortable and really happy with the photos she took, which we were. Also, her packages are well priced and are flexible, so that we were able to get exactly what we wanted. We had a lovely experience with Claire and we absolutely can’t wait to do another photo shoot with Claire as our family grows!!

Claire is the best! We love the photos of our daughter! I was a bit apprehensive about a newborn session since it's such a stressful time, but she made everything relaxed and easy. Highly recommended!

Claire captured some really special moments for our family during a maternity family session in a beautiful park as well as a newborn session at our home. She is incredible to work with, really bringing out the personalities in our children. Plus, she has a great personality which made our photo sessions really fun! For all these reasons I highly recommend Claire!

Our most precious photos of our little one were taken by Claire. What makes her a special photographer in my mind is her patient and calm approach, the connection she is able to make with kids (they love her!) and her knack for capturing those perfect moments or expressions (the photos of our baby's sleep smile or him sticking his tongue out at us immediately come to mind). Thanks again Claire!

We've had Claire photograph our twins on a few different occasions. She is always reliable, professional, so so quick, and an unbelievable baby whisperer. Somehow she manages to capture the quirkiness of our family while making us all feel comfortable and relaxed the whole time. We wouldn't hesitate to use Claire again and again.
