"I've just finished my training with Claire. The first Newborn Photography School held at Newborn Posing Ltd in Cheadle. Amazing. I've loved every single minute of it. Claire was just brilliant as we were all at different levels of photography. I'm a complete newby at this and she has helped give me confidence as I start my new career. From training in class to online mentoring and Facebook messages. You couldn't ask for more. Thanks Claire xx"

Claire studied graphic design, photography and fine art before finally deciding that photography was her calling. She turned professional in 2001 and her exceptional skill as a photographer of newborns, toddlers and families soon became obvious.
She is a Craftsman with the Guild of Photographers and has achieved one of the highest scores to date in the international Image of the Month competition. Her natural capability to get young people to engage with her is her 'trademark' - indeed her gift! Claire is, by nature, one of life's givers, and she genuinely wants to help others to fulfill their dreams through photography, just as she feels she has done!
