" We had a lot of fun during the photo session with Claire. She was very professional and had lots of creative ideas. Claire made us feel relaxed and captured natural, yet magical moments. Now we have great photos of our family and great memories. Thank you Claire! "

"Claire did three photo sessions commemorating the birth of our second child - maternity, newborn, and 100 days. She worked with us every step of the way to determine what we wanted and to set it up in advance but also took advantage of unplanned "moments." In one case, during a rest from the shoot, our newborn was looking lovingly at her 2 1/2 year old brother who looked back with a grin. It's still one of my favorite shots. The photos are all phenomenal. I often wonder, how does she get the lighting so right? As a Facebook friend said, "never leave that photographer!" We don't plan to. She is great with kids - who are not always the most willing of subjects. And, she has quickly became a member of the family. We look forward to more shoots in the future!"

"Claire was super-easy to work with & made all of us (baby Carys most importantly) feel really at-ease... which allowed for a really natural looking outcome. We LOVE our photos!
ANNETTE JENKINS - TUNG CHUNG
"Claire's relaxed, patient and flexible approach ensured the photo shoot went smoothly with our 3 month and 2 year old. The photos Claire was able to capture and the emotions were way beyond anything we were expecting. We are so happy we used Claire and recommend her to anyone who wants to capture those intimate moments to treasure for a lifetime”.
ROSIE & JUSTIN LOUIS - DISCOVERY BAY "We used Claire to shoot both our maternity and newborn photos. Claire made us all feel comfortable in front of the camera and had greats tips for settling our 13 day old baby. The photos are incredible and we love showing them off at any chance we get!I’m so glad we used Claire, as we have a beautiful reminder of how tiny our beautiful Milla once was (and how big my pregnant belly was)!We look forward to using Claire in the future to capture more amazing images of our growing girl".

'Claire has been a great find! Her photography is exactly what I was looking for and she works efficiently, professionally and really listened to me and what I needed for my Interior Design company and homeware brand, I look forward to many more shoots together in the future’
MAURA CORCORAN - DISCOVERY BAY
"Claire is a fantastic family photographer. Her dedication and professionalism are outstanding. We absolutely treasure the shots she has taken of our family over the years. We are particularly impressed with her understanding of the need for flexibility with young children and the patience she demonstrates. The final product has always exceeded expectations and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for the best family photographer"

I was slightly anxious about having a photo shoot with my toddler and three month old twins. I had missed the newborn window so I wondered how many great shots any photographer would be able to capture with three little ones in the frame without one pulling a face. Claire was from the moment she entered our home organised, calm and professional. She put me right at ease. She had some great ideas for how we could handle all three children and was willing to fulfil my requests on the style and feel for the shoot. I was thrilled with the outcome and though my toddler boy was not able to pose with the twins for any length of time to get a 'decent' shot Claire worked wonders by cropping and editing him into one so I now have my favourite photo of all three.
DANNY FREER & CHRISSY CARINI - DISCOVERY BAY
Claire was fantastic to work with! Our photo session was probably more challenging than most due to our three badly behaved dogs being involved -- but Claire made it seem easy. She was extremely professional before, during and after the shoot. She was very flexible and took the time to make sure we ended up with exactly the photos we had hoped for. My wife and I were thrilled with the results!
GILLIAN WHITTAKER - DISCOVERY BAY
Claire has photographed our boys on two occasions. The first photoshoot was an indoor setting with the boys and their guitars. Claire gave advice on what the boys should wear for the best results and was was very flexible in accommodating us with the booking. She captured the boys in their element and we were thrilled with the results. The boys had such a great time during the shoot and they still love looking at the photos. A year later we booked another shoot, this time in an outdoor environment. Claire took beautiful photos of the boys in a relaxed, natural outdoor setting and again, we were thrilled with the results. Claire has a very calm approach which made the boys very comfortable and relaxed. We treasure our photos of our beautiful boys and would recommend Claire to anyone who is looking to capture special moments.
LAURA SHEPHERD - DISCOVERY BAY
Claire has taken many photographs of us as a family and of my children individually over the last few years and I am delighted with every photo I have received. The character of both my children shines through and she is so patient and kind with everyone she works with. Claire made us feel very relaxed and I am so thrilled that she has captured our family in such a perfect way. I would highly recommend Claire.
CELINE & ALEX PELLARIN - DISOCVERY BAY
We had our business portraits taken by Claire. It was simple, easy, pleasant and most importantly we are very happy with the results. Claire managed to make us feel comfortable (which was not given!) and came out with great, natural, lively pictures of each of us. Since then, I have several times suggested to offer gift vouchers with Claire as birthday or farewell gifts and it made everybody happy (including the organisers who did not have to shop all around HK!). I find it’s a great, meaningful & lasting present. We can definitely recommend Claire!
JOHNNIES & TAMSIN BALFOUR - DISCOVERY BAY
We used the photographs Claire took of us as Christmas presents for all of our family last year and put a large collection up around our own house. Everyone is delighted with them. In addition, Claire was very easy to deal with and our kids were putty in her hands. I'd highly recommend anyone wanting family portraits to give Claire a call.
BETHAN & TIM CLARK - DISCOVERY BAY
Our family has used Highjump Photography many times and can’t recommend them enough. The most important aspect of portrait photography is the photographer’s rapport with the subject, and Claire is a natural. Her understated management of the shoot and her easy, authoritative charm creates a perfect atmosphere for capturing the best in her subjects. She’s flexible, responsive and unflappable and her shoots are a pleasure from beginning to end.
RACHEL HUMPHREYS - DISCOVERY BAY
I would not hesitate to recommend Claire to anyone for a photo session. She was absolutely great with our family; none of us are great at having our photographs taken and yet she managed to make us feel relaxed and not too self conscious. Claire was happy to work with our suggestions and offer her own ideas too which worked well. We are absolutely delighted with the results and will treasure our pictures and the many happy memories they evoke.
NATALIE CLARK - DISCOVERY BAY
“Claire, the canvases are fantastic - I'm over the moon - the colours are great!!!!
Thanks so much for your hard work - much appreciated.”
SARAH & KEVIN MCDAVID - DISOVERY BAY
Claire joined us in our home to photograph our 3 month old daughter and take some family portraits. She helped to create a beautiful, calm environment in which we all - especially baby - felt relaxed and comfortable. Claire is confident, professional, and flexible. An absolute pleasure to work with!
