What wonderful profile pictures Clare provided. Clare not only made you feel at ease and was very professional but also showed her experience by making sure the light was correct for any shadows to make your look glowing. I have had many comments on how good the photos are and would without doubt recommend Clare to anyone for photography. More...

Clare has the knack of quickly making you feel at easy so that you can relax in front of the camera whilst she takes really natural looking photos without you even realising. This is no mean feat when the camera is not normally your friend!<br /><br />Very impressed and would happily use CJJoyce Photography again. Thanks Clare. More...

I hate having my photo taken. But Clare put me at ease, made me feel comfortable and before I knew it, Clare had finished taking the picture. I was worried I would have a double chin and look horrible. Clare is very professional and extremely good photograper that I had nothing to worry about the pictures are beautiful. Thank you so very much. I am very happy to recommend her to everyone. More...

Clare has been so helpful and encouraging. I am very shy in front of a camera, and find it all a bit daunting, but she has made me feel totally at ease and produced some lovely photograohs of me. Thanks Clare x.

Thank you Clare, I'm very happy to recommend your photography skills. Clare took profile pics of me for my Facebook profile. She emailed them to me by the end of the weekend, as promised, and is sending them on a disc too. More...

I have used CJJoyce photography twice now, once for family shots and once for her boudoir package. Both sets of photos were amazing and she made me feel really at ease. The children enjoyed the family shoot and the quality of the images were exceptional. Clare is a goddess with a camera! More...

We wanted studio photos for our daughter's graduation and wanted to pick someone local to us. I liked the look of Clare's website and the feel of her work and on contacting her she was very accommodating with the date and time. Clare has a calm manner which made the experience fun but relaxed. Not only did we get the graduation photos but some lovely family ones as well without any fuss and<span id="moreReview382622" class="hide"> everything was completed much quicker than anticipated. The proofs were online to view 2 days after the photo shoot! Would highly recommend Clare and will certainly use her in the future.</span> More...

I've worked with Clare twice, whilst pregnant and then again with my newborn, she captures special moments which would otherwise be forgotten<br /><br />An absolute pleasure to work with, she's bursting with ideas and we always get great images. Very talented.... I cant wait 'til the next shoot! More...


Being comfortable and confident, and having a great connection between photographer and client will always bring out the best in any photograph.

Because I accept only a limited number of weddings and photo shoots each year, I like to get to know my clients very well to ensure that we are a good fit. I like clients to take a couple of minutes to answer a couple of questions to help streamline our communication and ensure that they are well taken care of :)

I feel that to be a great photographer you have to have passion for people, and enjoy the challenge and creativity of showing their story through the camera lens! My tag line is Capturing Memories... simply because I want people to look back on their images in years to come and have them evoke fabulous memories from the time they we're taken. I absolutely adore every minute of my job and I will be forever grateful to all of the people who have supported me over the years!

I had been a keen photographer for many, many years and it certainly kicked up a gear when my children arrived in the late 90's! after meeting a good friend (in 2002) who after a long life love of every thing camera he set about encouraging me to push on to the next level... and in 2005 I made the decision to turn professional and I've never looked back!

I have been told many times that I have a knack for putting people at ease in front of the camera... Many, many times I've been contacted by clients who have told me that they are not photogenic and I will have a hard time getting a decent picture of them... challenge accepted!

In my 11+ years in this game I have managed to not only capture one decent image for these clients but many, leaving them astounded at how fabulous they actually look.

Cold Calling... don't like getting cold calls and so hate to do the same to others! If you ask me for a quote that's what you will get simple :-) no phone calls (unless arranged) no pressure sales, no gimmicks!

People buy from people... I like to think I am easy going, relaxed, and personable... so if we get talking about your photo shoot and you feel comfortable with me and visa versa then we will capture great images and make some fabulous memories for you to enjoy for the rest of your lives.
