HI, I’M CLAIRE,

I am a short, yoga loving foodie with a big laugh and an even bigger imagination. I grew up surrounded by the bush in Mpumalanga and made the move to Cape Town 11 years ago. Anything 80’s / New Wave is my jam and if there is an animal near me, I will find it and I will attempt to adopt it or smuggle it home in my camera bag.

I am an artist through and through and love nothing more than lifes happy accidents. I believe in documenting life as it unfolds naturally, finding the art in the moment rather than over curating and tampering with the authenticity.

Honestly if I had a super power, I would choose to be invisible because my most beautiful photographs that I treasure to this day were taken when nobody knew I was there. This is the way I work and am proud of my reputation as a little photo-ninja!

We would be a great fit if you feel shy in front of the camera, don’t fancy all the overly posed stuff and love to have a good laugh. I don’t take life or myself too seriously and love to go with the flow while I make magic from what I see.

HI, I’M CLAIRE,

and I strongly believe that imperfection and honesty is more spectacular than cultivated beauty.

This is your life, your story. It is not a stage production, a manicured Instagram feed or an organised Pinterest board. It is what it is and that is unique, real, chaotic and, most importantly, It’s no body else’s, but yours.

One of the things that define my personal style is that I strongly believe that a moment is sacred and cannot be over created or interfered with. I capture life as I see it and as it unfolds naturally. My biggest compliment I have ever received? “You captured all the little things and we didn’t even know you were there!”

Add authenticity and a little sprinkle of natural light and you have the closest thing to magic that we could witness. Before I ever picked up a camera I had a very loving relationship with natural light. It completely throws me off guard and I can honestly say that sometimes I lose my breath and get all weak in the knees.

Let me work with my light and your surroundings and I will take some beautiful, real photographs that you will have to cherish for many years to come. The added bonus? We always have a belly laugh or two while getting it done!
