As gratifying as awards are, the most rewarding thing for me is returning clients. Over the years it has been such a pleasure getting to know a number of lovely families who have returned many times, allowing me to create special memories for them, as their children develop and their family grows. I am so thrilled when clients are happy with their images and I hear stories of the images bringing a tear to their eye. Here are some ‘kind words’ from clients that you might be interested to read.



I'd recommend a photoshoot with Claire to all new mums! Getting out of the house felt like such a mission in the first couple of weeks, but once with Claire I had such an enjoyable morning.  Her experience with newborns quickly put me at ease and I felt more relaxed than  I had since Charlie's birth. 

Charlie has already grown so much since the photoshoot - luckily we have a gorgeous set of images to remind us of that special newborn stage.

Claire I love them! How am I going to be able to choose?! 

The quality is fantastic & they look even better in real life than on the website.

Thank you so much.

I was a little dubious about how well a photo shoot with a 10 day old and a toddler would pan out, but I needn't have worried. Claire put everyone at ease and the whole session was relaxed and enjoyable. 

It was amazing watching her with the newborn, like a master at work! The curled up poses aren't easy to achieve but Claire has buckets of patience and was so calm and gentle, my baby boy slept through most of it and the end results were worth every penny. 

She also managed to capture the most beautiful happy shots of my grumpy toddler, I don't know how she did it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Claire to anyone looking for a relaxed newborn photo shoot.

Would like to say a huge thank you to Claire Walder and her photography! I have   recently had a newborn shoot with my little girl Elle, Claire was very accommodating and very patient! We tried lots of beautiful outfits that Claire provided and put Elle in these adorable poses. The end results were amazing, I didn't know which ones to choose. I wouldn't go anywhere where else for photos now!

Thanks again for the lovely photos and for all the time you took to help us get some great shots! We're really pleased with them - some very special photos to mark our first year with Lucas.

Claire did a maternity and newborn photo shoot for me. We were thrilled with the images she captured and she made the whole experience really enjoyable. It's not easy leaving the house with your 11 day old baby but Claire made us feel completely at home and her skills went beyond photography on that day - a career as a baby whisperer wouldn't go amiss.

Claire is the best photographer EVER!
