Hi, I’m Clare, a Horsham Photographer based in West Sussex with over 10 years of experience.

I adore all kinds of photography but it is portraiture that is my true love.

Good photography captures memories of a moment in time which can otherwise fade all too quickly.

The ability to record a PERFECT MOMENT in a family’s life, a newborn smile or the serenity of an expectant mother is a real delight.
