Clare has really helped me take my photography to the next level by building my confidence and further developing my existing skills. Her posing guides in Perfecting Portraits are amazing and really give you a great base for creating your own vision. The behind the scene setups were so helpful, especially for starting out in newborn photography.

Since Perfecting Portraits I've been portfolio building and setting up my own photography business which I will launch with confidence in the next few months. None of which would have been possible without Clare.

Bootcamp and Perfecting Portraits are still hands down my absolute favourite thing that I have done for myself post kids.

blockquote greyAs a fellow photographer, I'm in awe of what Clare consistently produces. When it came time to choosing who to capture our newborn baby there was no one I could think of who could do a better job. Clare gave us the confidence to be ourselves and worked to our baby's pace. We left with the biggest smiles on our faces and couldn't wait to see what magic would come. Clare really is amazing, I'm honoured and proud to know her and see the work she has done, the business she has developed, she is an inspiration!

blockquote greyLearning more specific posing tricks and behind the scenes 'reality' was what I took away from Perfecting Portraits. I loved the group feedback and support! Perfecting Portraits focuses more on posing techniques, ideas & important background information you need when photographing beyond your own children. I loved Perfecting Portraits - it gave me the confidence, determination and motivation I needed to use my talents and make some money! 

Clare, thank you for all the wonderful guidance you have given though Beginner Bootcamp and now Perfecting Portraits.  It's early days, but your beautiful photography, talented teaching ability and gorgeous smile have been an inspiration for me to "just do it!"

blockquote greyI've had my own photography business for around 12 months and when I decided to expand from doing real estate and commercial work, to doing kids and families, I was looking for a course that would open my eyes to how to best pose kids and families, how to make the best use of light and location, and also some editing tips.

Before I worked with Clare in Perfecting Portraits, I had a really good handle on how to use my camera, what setting to use, but I was never really happy with the shots of kids I was getting.  When I heard about Perfecting Portraits, I jumped at the chance to work with a professional photographer who produces some beautiful work in a style similar to what I want to achieve.

Since completing the course, my images have improved enormously and I am really happy with the work I am doing now. Thanks Clare, I highly recommend Perfecting Portraits for anyone who wants to improve their child photography!

blockquote greyI feel like Perfecting Portraits has really challenged me to think creatively and to look at different perspectives when taking pictures. Before Clare's course my photos were not dynamic, they were not interesting to look at all! Now, not only are they crystal clear, tack sharp, with sparkly eyes and beautiful light, but they are also interesting to look at with the composition as well.

I was really surprised that the Facebook group that Clare has put together was something I would find so useful! I've been able to meet women from all over the world through this group, and have been so encouraged and so uplifted from the guidance and tips and just so inspired by these women and their beautiful children and photography. I feel like the Facebook group was such a big bonus that when I signed up, I didn't even think was necessary!

I feel like completing Perfecting Portraits has been priceless.  I think my pictures really are gorgeous now, I have this skill for the rest of my life and I am so excited I will be able to treasure these photos forever and my kids will have these memories. I am just so thankful.

blockquote greyI signed up to Perfecting Portraits mainly because I wanted to know more. I wanted to know more about posing newborns and also creating artwork.  Plus I felt I didn't want a break in my learning and wanted to keep the momentum going. Continuing on with Perfecting Portraits is totally worth it!

Amy, Adelaide, Australia

blockquote greyBootcamp made me good but Perfecting Portraits took me to the next level, and made it more instinctive rather than having to think hard every time I took a photo. I felt stretched in Perfecting Portraits, the standard was higher and the group dynamic kept raising the bar for each module! It's easier to take at your own pace because the modules are weekly.

Some of the images I've taken are now big canvases on friends' walls or photo books for them. I would never have thought that possible!

Catherine, Sydney, Australia

blockquote greyI loved Bootcamp so much (the experience, the learning, the group support, the push to keep practicing) that I wanted to keep going and keep learning. I was really excited to learn more about editing and also the creating art/incorporating landscape aspect of it. Cost is always a concern but Bootcamp meant so much to me, and I do so little for myself these days, that I knew I wanted to take the next level. I love Clare's style of teaching with video and workbook format and the interactive aspect of the group. It was great to have the incentive to keep practicing, and to get a feel for the differences and subsequently the different needs each type of location requires.

Karyn, Boston, USA

blockquote greyI really loved PP - there were some great technical points that were covered - especially the parts about composition for art work (who doesn't want to put fabulous large prints of their family up on the wall!) Even though the photography style I use is more documentary than portrait, I found the course really useful and would do it again. I've found the lessons on specifically on lighting and composition still apply, just tweaked slightly so that you get a real fly on the wall perspective.
