I was thrilled with the huge variety of high quality images that Clare had created. All this despite my smiley girl putting on a stoney face for the better part of the day. The light, the angles and the unexpected made for some stunning photographs. Clare was extremely patient as we mulled over our choices and the acrylic hanging on our wall looks fantastic.

As 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!

I'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!

I wasn't sure if Perfecting Portraits was right for me but I decided to take the leap anyway. I am so happy that I did! I loved the group dynamic and it pushed me to be more creative and purposeful with my shooting

Completing Perfecting Portraits resulted in me starting my own photography business! I've just booked my first paying client, following the exact steps Clare gave us. I'm so proud to be doing something that brings me joy and that I can show my boys that IS possible to do anything you set your mind to. Bootcamp and Perfecting Portraits are still hands down my absolute favourite thing that I have done for myself post kids.
Ally, Goulburn, Australia
I 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.

Enrol Now and This Is What You Will Learn

Create Beautiful Artwork for your Walls

The most powerful images are those that tell a story. Understand how to use light, your environment, posing and creativity to create stunning artwork for your walls. Be inspired to go above and beyond the classic portrait to create powerful photographs that give the ultimate wow factor.

Systems, Editing and Workflow

Start by being systematic. I share my workflow systems for getting organised, backing up, optimising for print and web. Discover my simple editing techniques that lift your photographs to a professional level.

Be Prepared for Any Outdoor Shooting Scenario

Feel confident and in control and adapt to anything that comes your way! We look at case studies for typical outdoor locations including Park, Beach, Farm and Urban settings. We knuckle down specific poses to control your subjects and ensure you are armed and prepared to get the essential kids shots whatever the location may be.

Shoot Stylish Images in Everyday Homes

For people with smaller children and when weather is unpredictable, shooting at home is often easier. However every home is different, with different lighting challenges. We go room by room in real homes, pose by pose, with exact settings, behind the scene set ups and posing ideas to create images that look they like belong in the pages of a glossy magazine.

Pose Multiple Children Anywhere Anytime

Posing more than one child can be difficult. Get an arsenal of ideas and learn how to adapt and stay in control when shooting multiple kids at once. We go through specific poses for 2, 3, and 4 children, ranging in ages with exact settings and downloadable posing guides for easy reference.

Discover the Secrets to Emotive Newborn Photography

Shooting newborns is more complex than it looks. Discover the different approach required compared with rowdy sessions with older children. In this module we go behind the scenes with video footage and photos from actual newborn sessions and the resulting images to discover my exact techniques for creating stunning newborn photographs. Continue the journey of growth for your baby's first year with a downloadable posing guide for babies up to 12 months old.

I was initially reluctant as I thought my head was too full to take on more straight away! I think what got me over the line was knowing that a couple of mates would go through with me - and it made sense to keep going whilst it was all fresh in my head. Given the subject matter was broader - it meant I wasn't always in my child's face either (editing, landscapes, newborns, multiples). Bootcamp 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 - but lots more content to absorb. I'm so glad I continued with the same group and the momentum. We had lots of fun together. 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!

  • Transform Your Child Photography, with Creative Posing, Natural Smiles, and Beautiful Light Every Time
  • Gain Confidence and Feel in Control So That Photographing Kids is Fun and Stress-Free
  • Learn Step by Step How to Take Perfect Child Portraits From Start to Finish
  • Be Inspired and Encouraged As You Up Your Photography to a Professional Level - And Make Money (or More Money) From Your Skills!)
Money was the only thing I was initially reluctant about joining Perfecting Portraits... but I knew it would be worth it, and it was! Learning more specific posing tricks and behind the scenes 'reality' was what I took away from Perfecting Portraits and I loved the group feedback and support.
Perfecting Portraits focuses on posing techniques, ideas & safety and other important background information you need when photographing beyond your own children. Doing this course 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. It's early days, but your beautiful photography, talented teaching ability and gorgeous smile have been an inspiration for me to "just do it!"

Many thanks

I loved Bootcamp so much (the experience, the learning, the group support, the push to keep practicing) that I wanted to keep going and keep 
I 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 
learning. I am past the newborn/baby phase but 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. It helped to already know (from Beginner Bootcamp) that I learned really well with Clare's video and workbook format, with the way lessons are presented and the interactive aspect of the group. Continuing on with the same great group of people, and keeping both personal and group momentum going, was a great motivator as well. Personally I felt that Perfecting Portraits gave me a lot of different scenario ideas, in which I could apply and hone my new knowledge. 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.

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.

I would love to see you inside Perfecting Portraits!
"I'm passionate about sharing my knowledge - not only is it fun and satisfying and extremely important to be documenting (in a QUALITY way) the childhoods of our kids, but I have found a way to provide a lifestyle clare1for myself that I was only dreaming of a few short years ago. There are so many people out there with a passion for photography and the desire to escape the rat race, I really want to help them, starting with growing their confidence and their photographic technical abilities so they are shooting quality images every time.
The first step to this is nailing down how to add value to each of your shoots, and get professional quality, beautiful images that your clients love. I hope to help you take your first step towards changing your life!"
