tell your story

& I just really bloody love taking pictures.
I'm a Phillip Island based photographer with a mad love for making sure all of your favourite moments are never, ever, ever, ever forgotten.
Driven by that nostalgic, gooey, spine-tingling feeling you get when you look back on an image and you can remember exactly how you felt. 

I'm Claire

Hello there, I'm so glad you've found your way here

Here to tell the stories of everyday life and document the love that's not always told in words


Photos create tangible evidence that you exist, they tell your story. They create reminders of places you’ve been and people you’ve loved.
I think that’s bloody magic.
The day I picked up a camera I realised I had the power to freeze time & I’ve been in love ever since.

Photos are more than just a post on social media, they’re your history.

it's your history

this is why

"Instantly when we met Claire she felt like a friend. We felt so relaxed & comfortable through the entire session. The weather was not in anyone's favor that day but Claire did not let that ruin the photos or the experience. She just embraced the day and made it work to her advantage. I could have honestly cried of happiness once we received the photos.I was so so in love. They were magical. I will forever cherish the memory's Claire has given us. We can't wait to get photos done again soon with her!

"If you are wanting some breathtaking memories captured then you are looking at the right girl! Our experience with Claire was an absolute breeze all the way through. Claire made us feel comfortable throughout the shoot and even turned our 4 year old into her apprentice (which was rather entertaining). Claire captured some truly magical moments that we will cherish for a lifetime.."

Extended family sessions can be organized at an additional $150! Extra family members means extra time and extra organization. If you’d like to do multiple family combinations, I can help you come up with a list of photos.
