Welcome to the home of Claire Meldrum Photography. I have been described by my fabulous clients as being "calm, easy going, professional, friendly and someone who can put children at ease to the point that they forget they are being photographed."
Trying to get your own children to co operate for a picture is tough, someone who does this constantly such as myself has tried and tested techniques to win around, cajole and bring out the most reluctant of subjects.
When you invest in a photography session with Claire Meldrum Photography you are investing in memories for the future.
I capture the images you never knew you wanted.
I love capturing natural images of families outdoors away from the confines of a studio.
I do sometimes offer direction and might ask you to turn slightly but apart from that I try and capture you all as naturally as possible in a relaxed manner.
I like to document your day in a relaxed style. Candid portraits make my heart happy but I realise that posed group portraits are the memories of the future, the photos we look back at in years to come. With a small amount of posed group portraits we can keep the day relaxed and enjoyable for everyone. Afterwards I then take the time to capture some gorgeous images of you as newlyweds. Before working the room and taking images of smaller family groups, speeches and the details.
We all have our strengths and photography is mine. I love just getting on in there and doing my thing, balancing lots of candid images with posed shots. Event photography is tricky! Paying someone to capture your event is a great investment.
