Newborn Photography by Claire Wilson

Newborn Photography by Claire Wilson


When Claire’s daughter, Eve, was born in 2004, she had just bought my first digital SLR camera. Although she didn’t know much about the technical side of photography, she knew that she wanted to capture all the tiny details about her so she began taking lots and lots of photos. When Eve was about nine months old, she started to share her photographs on her blog and a year or so later, after many more clicks of the shutter, other parents approached her to take photographs of their little ones and her hobby became something more.
She likes to keep things simple, she don’t use studio lights or Flash…only natural light. She loves interesting, organic textures like woollen blankets, wicker baskets or muslin, and so those are my only backdrops. Every shoot is different because every baby is different. She considers it a great privilege to be invited into people’s homes during the early days after a new baby is born. If you would like to get in touch, either to book a session, ask a question or just to say hello, she’s always happy to hear from you, just click our contact button above to drop her an email.
