Corporate and Headshots
After the birth of my daughter I decided to follow my dreams and open up a studio. I live in Edinburgh and just love life here. Portrait photography is where my heart lies. From Newborns to Personal Branding. The variety of work keeps me enthusiastic about all my clients and each and every job.
My photographic journey started a long time ago when I completed my BA in Photography and Media in 2001.I've been told that my approach to sessions sets me apart, I prefer to take my time and make sure everybody is relaxed and ready to participate in the session. Although there is usually a time frame within which my sessions normally are carried out, I do not clock watch. If I need to take my time a little more, I will do so. I do not schedule appointments back to back which allows me to focus on your session without worrying about getting finished up at a certain time.
I'd love to capture your families memories or help you with your business.
My portrait studio is situated on Ferry Road in Edinburgh, it’s very easy to get to along the A902. Are you coming in a car? No problem! With over 250 free car parking spaces you’ll have no trouble finding a space. Likewise, if coming on the bus I have a bus stop right outside my door.
My building is equipped with lifts for your convenience and comfort, you can bring your buggy right up to my studio with ease. When you come into the studio you’ll sees it is a large 90 square meter space so you have plenty of room to relax and watch me take the very best care of your precious new-born baby. I have a fully stocked fridge with cold drinks, individually packed snacks, teas and coffees. I’ll serve you a cappuccino and biscuits and you can just sit back and relax on my comfy sofa – you no doubt need a break! If you forget anything (it happens, I remember it well) then don’t panic. I have a baby changing station stocked with nappies, nappy sacks, breast pads etc. All you need to do is turn up with your baby and I’ll do the rest.
We can talk about styling prior to your session so rest assured I’ll guide you through every step of the way and ensure you walk away with images and products to suit your home and walls. I have a large stock of props and backdrops to choose from to make sure your artwork is just as you desire.
I’ve trained with the very best in the business including one of the worlds leading newborn photographers Kelly Brown amongst other UK leading trainers such as Claire Elliot for safety training meaning your baby is in very safe hands.
Booking in could not be easier, just choose your preferred date (I recommend 10 days after due date) if your baby arrives late or early, you can change the date yourself to suit! The booking form is at the bottom of this page.

I would highly recommend Stork Photography. Clare did our newborn shoot and couldn’t have been more patient when dealing with both our newborn and our older son. We are thrilled with the photos she captured!
Had the most amazing experience with stork photography!!! I would highly recommend. The photos were amazing and I’m so greatful to have these photos forever, thank you so much xx
Clare did my sons photos the other day. She is so professional and knows how to capture amazing pictures. Clare didn’t rush and was very calm which made my son calm during the photos which enabled us to capture beautiful pictures. I love all the pictures and it is so hard to choose a favourite as I love them all equally. Would recommend Clare to anyone who is looking for a newborn baby shoot. 10+ star rating from us
