“… Claire is a super star!  

A master in newborn posing, lighting and styling.  Her friendly and funny nature makes you feel at ease immediately. After 5 minutes its like you have known Claire all your life. Claire has given me the confidence to try some new poses safely. I highly recommend her workshops. I hope to attend more in the future.  Cheers Claire. I attended last week to a newborn training workshop in Cardiff, it was amazing, thoroughly enjoyed it “
