My name is Claire, I'm a Coffs Harbour based portrait and wedding photographer with a creative, warm approach, and a big heart for natural light. I love how blessed I am to be able to choose from so many incredible locations on the Coffs Coast.


everalsting memories

And real

Some kind words

The photos that you captured of our wedding day are something we will treasure forever.

Your talent is incredible! The way you captured the warmth and love in our wedding portraits is just wonderful. We are so appreciative because each of them feel just so 'us"

on the day truly shines through. Thank you.

When rain, hail, thunder and then a heavy fog threw all of our pre-made plans for photographs out the window, your calm manner, flexibility and creativity truly put us both at ease. Not only were you able to help us reshuffle the timing of our day, without any stress, and still photograph everything, but the way your photos capture the most romantic mood of the wet conditions and fog is surreal. All of our friends and family can't believe how beautifully the photos have turned out!

Claire photographed our extended family in December 2022. The experience was just perfect. Super relaxed, it was like she was an old friend just strolling the beach with us. The photos were just stunning and everything we’d hoped for and more

Our experience with Claire as our wedding photographer was exceptional. From the initial conversation through to the final moments, she was professional, prompt & just a pleasure to work with.
Above all, she made all of our wedding guests feel comfortable, and the quality of her photography skills made our memory of our special day, not just a visual one, but she magically captured all of the big beautiful feelings felt, taking us right back to the moments again and again.

Forever grateful & couldn't recommend enough. Thanks Claire.
