The above galleries can give you a quick overview of how I capture family sessions. And below, the featured galleries will give you a clear idea of my style of photography, editing, consistency, and just how much of an awesome time we'll have together!
I met up with this fun family from Oakville in a fun neighbourhood in Toronto called Liberty Village. It was a warm September evening and we had such a fun time exploring all the cute areas of this neighbourhood. I have photographed N since he was a newborn. It's so fun to see clients return to get updated portraits.
The W Family
The W family contacted me to get some portraits of their new family of 4. Because of the pandemic, little F missed out on newborn portraits. So our session became his 4 month portraits! We had such a lovely evening wandering the wildflower paths in this Toronto park. It's such a great location to take family photos because there is such a variety of areas to explore.
The C Family
I met up with this beautiful family on a warm summer evening in High Park, Toronto for their family photo session. Baby E was such a sweet and happy boy. His parents just adore him, which you can see in these photos. Family sessions with young babies are always so fun, especially when there are endless smiles!
Let's create beautiful memories together
As a mother of two small children , I understand just how quickly they grow up. One day they are babbling and the next they are saying "seriously, mom!". I also know how hard it is to be in the photos when you are the one taking them. I want your family session to be a time where you shine; where the love you have for your family shines through. I want to capture all of it. The laughter, the cuddles, the sweet looks you give your little one. I don't want you to worry if little Jack isn't smiling at the camera. I do like to take what I call the "grandma" shot where everyone is looking happy at the camera but that's just the beginning of what I want you to walk away with. I want you to look at your photos and feel that I've captured your family's true essence.
My job is to help you orchestrate the joy. We will play games and I will prompt you and give you lots of directions. You may feel silly but I promise you the outcome will be beautiful. My sessions will not only provide you will wall-worthy pictures, but also life long memories and heirlooms to pass down for generations.
“Sometimes, You will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.” ―Dr. Seuss

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 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!
