Capturing {the beauty of} the EveryDay

Family, Wedding and Commercial photographer in the Northeast of England, specialising in documentary imagery and film.

About me.

My name is Claire

I'm a mother, a wife and a storyteller.

I like to keep things simple. I enjoy honest conversation, a strong cup of coffee, hanging out the washing in the morning sun, baking scrummy cakes and hearing the sound of my little boy laughing with his Daddy.

I crave the warmth of the sun against my face, love watching the sunrise, exploring foreign shores and I am drawn to those who see beauty in unexpected places.

As your photographer, I want to share with you {the beauty} that I see blooming right in your EveryDay life.

Unscripted is not only about images, it's about movement. I also create beautiful moving pictures set to music.

My film and pictures will evoke the feelings of individual connections, warmth and love. I capture the simple gestures. The guidance, the games, the “looks”. The touch, the kiss, the whispers. The smallest moments. The songs, the twirls, the giggles. Precious time that can be so easily forgotten. All Unscripted.

My favourite photographs are the kind that tell a story about the people in them. The kind of images that make the person looking at them FEEL something.

From your BigDays I want you to feel joy. From your EveryDays, I want you to feel warmth. From your WorkDays, I want you to feel proud.

So if the idea of posing makes you cringe and all you REALLY want is to capture images and films that have meaning, a true sense of yourself and your life, then I’m the lady for you.

I had the pleasure of working with Claire last month on some blog photos, and I loved how they turned out! Despite not being a fashion photographer, Claire took some stunning photos which work perfectly for my blog, the ability to turn her hand to a new type of photography just shows how talented she is. Claire is also really lovely and I felt completely at ease with her. It was honestly one of my favourite shoots I've ever done!

The photos Claire captured of me and my daughter were amazing- I sat and cried at the video of the photos! I just want to buy every one of them! She's captured me in a way I didn't realise anyone could see- not even myself. Love love love!

Claire came to our home in the summer. She was warm, friendly and professional. She had a great rapport with our boys and us and it shows in the photos. Can't recommend highly enough. X

Claire took some photos of myself & my little boy Henry for a Mummy & Me session. I hate having my photo taken however the results are just beautiful...I have 'real' moments recorded in print forever. Not just posed moments but beautiful small details I could never capture myself. Thank you so much for the final product & also for being so warm & friendly on the day. Claire & Henry x

We looked for a photographer who would offer something different to the standard bump to baby photo shoot in a studio, and that's exactly what we got with Claire! Our photos tell a story...not only that the shoots were relaxed and comfortable without any awkward posing! I knew from our first email that we would get along; Claire is so friendly and is clearly passionate about her work. Thank you Claire, for the memories.

I love Claire's work. She's done a couple of sessions for us to date and given us some fantastic photos of our little boy that we'll treasure always. What's great about Claire is that as well as being talented in this style of documentary photography, she is a lovely person. She doesn't judge and clearly loves what she does and that's exactly the type of person you want to allow into your life and capture those special but personal family moments.

Before even seeing our final photos I can honestly say Claire was fantastic and everyone who attended our wedding commented on Claire and how great she was. She was part of our wedding and got involved in every aspect of the day. Claire comes highly recommended from Myself and my wife as well as everyone who attended our wedding. Thank you so much for an amazing job.

Claire- wow, where do I start. I met Claire a few years ago when she brought her gorgeous little boy Harry to our dancing babies class. I started following her photography journey then. My sister had a mummy and me session which was just incredible and I knew then that she was my wedding photographer (before I was even engaged!!). No second choices- no back ups- didn’t look at anyone else- it was always Claire. I was thrilled when she was available for our date and she has been so so helpful, friendly and professional from the get go.

On our big day, Claire was like one of our nearest and dearest sharing our day as a guest would. She joined in the laughter, the dancing and all in between (minus the tequila- I think?!).

We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our BigDay photography package and our alternative wedding video. The sneak peak was a TOTAL tease!

Thanks so SO much again. I couldn’t recommend you more highly. And pencil us in for every other occasion in our life here forward!!

Claire has an incredible eye for the perfect picture. Every time we have booked Claire for a shoot we have felt comfortable which has resulted in some really personal and intimate pictures. She offers a glimpse into your family life at a moment in time, which is and will always remain priceless. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Claire to anyone. We joke that Claire is now our personal family photographer, but we know that we will be booking her again at the next opportunity.

Unscripted Photography Q&A

Unscripted Photography Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

People and their stories.
People and their connections.
People and their emotions.
And how I capture them on camera.
And how they cry when they see the result.
Simple as that!

Why should our clients choose you?

I’m simply a storyteller at heart.
Whether I'm capturing your EveryDay, BigDay or WorkDay, I love to find the stories within and around.
I love that each shot can ultimately tell a story. I love that video can add depth to any scenario. And that's why you should choose me. As, from my one little camera, with a twitch of a finger, I can capture everything from movement to moments. Through imagery and film. Whether it's your first dance or baby's first steps - I can be there to capture the most treasured moments and create family heirlooms to pass down to generations to come. I'm 100% documentary (although I appreciate that a couple portrait or family portrait is nice to have, so I'll never say no). I'm like your pal with a poncey camera. I'll muck in, be friends with guests, play with your children - I know how to get amongst it and ultimately get THE shot! The ones that really tell your story.
So if you're looking to ditch the cheese, enjoy your day, and ultimately capture the true moments - I'm the photographer for you.

Family Documentary Photographer

The Unscripted Sessions Documentary, Day in the Life Sessions Days pass in the blink of an eye. Years blur together. It’s so easy to forget the little things. Whilst portraits present beautiful photographs, these Unscripted experiences deliver the raw, yet fabulously beautiful truth of EveryDay life. This is more than just a photoshoot. We’re creating a window into your life. Captured forever on film. Life is about real moments. From laughing at Dad’s dancing to crying over spilt milk. Kids are cute and funny, sometimes embarrassing (not as much as Dad’s dancing though) and you want to capture all of these moments. And you (probably Mum) want to be in the frame too! If you don’t like the idea of standing in a park or in a studio and stressing over your kids smiling at the camera. If you want to capture real, happy, fun photos of you and your family being simply themselves. If you want to relax, perhaps stay in your pyjamas all day, embrace the chaos, enjoy a cuppa and a chocolate biscuit whilst I just document your imperfectly perfect lives – then these are the sessions for you. Your photos can be taken at your home, where you feel most comfortable, and where the kids can play and mess about. You could also choose a location that means something to you – perhaps the beach, an arcade, the ice-cream parlour or the middle of the moors. Although I’m based in Northumberland – I can travel anywhere! The Unscripted Session includes: Up to an entire day spent with you documenting every detail of this current chapter of your life story (typically around 350 final images and short film). You just keep to your daily routine. I come along for the ride. We’re not looking for Pinterest poses here, we’re looking for you comfortable, natural, in your own habitat. The full set of artistically edited high resolution digital negatives in a USB presentation box. A film portrait featuring some of your most magical moments from throughout the day. A collection of 4×6 images from your session. Some printed as picture postcards with my thoughts and quotes beside the image. Reminders of the dearest moments, the unforgettable breaths, the littlest steps – to be scattered about your abode. A mobile phone app with a selection of your images that you can share with friends and family

Wedding Documentary Photographer

There is nothing more epic than a love story. And we’re about to tell yours. I never set out to be a wedding photographer. If you met me in the pub and asked me what I do for a living, I would say that I’m a documentary photographer. I don’t really mind what the subject is, I just like to look, frame and capture. I want to capture the moment. The emotion. The reaction. You see, I initially started Unscripted Photography to capture the beautiful lives of normal families going about their normal days. Somehow, some lovely couples stumbled across my work and saw something in it. And then the enquiries began. At first I was reluctant to put myself “out there” for weddings, but after I captured my first few, I loved that within every BigDay there were so many little stories, little moments. All dying to be preserved. So I was hooked! I’m simply a storyteller at heart. And I’m so glad that you have found your way into my little Unscripted world and may consider me to tell yours. My Style Think of me as your mate with the poncey camera! I mingle, I get in close, sometimes step back, sometimes observe, often chat to guests, offer advice (like how to go to the loo in a big giant frock), dance with the flower girls – ultimately – I want the inside story on your wedding. I’m not looking for the pinterest poses. I’m there to capture every moment. Not just the big ones. Although they’re super important too. I want my images to transport you back to that moment in time when your now-husband whispers something ever-so-cheeky into your ear and you throw your head back in sheer hysteria. Weddings are full of these magical little moments. And it’s a huge honour to be able to capture them for you so they aren’t forgotten.
