NEWBORN + BABY PHOTOGRAPHY
MEET HORSHAM PHOTOGRAPHER, CLAIRE WILDERS
Hi, I’m Claire, a part time photographer based in Southwater, near Horsham, West Sussex, that specialises in maternity and newborn photography, family photography and commercial photography including property and personal branding. I love to capture the real you! I want to create a memory that you will look back on with fondness.
I’m probably very similar to you in the fact that I don’t really like my photo being taken.
Most of the photos that I am actually in are selfies with the children.. normally pulling a silly face. But this actually makes me realise how important it is to have photos of me with my family. When I have free time I love to be outside doing something active with my children. Ideally this would be in the mountains; climbing, skiing, cycling or just enjoying good weather and eating.
I am also very proud to be a volunteer photographer for the amazing charity Remember My Baby It is a a UK based registered charity which offers a gift of baby remembrance photography to UK parents experiencing the loss of their baby before, during or shortly after birth.. We visit them at the hospital and capture some beautiful photos of them as a family. Allowing them so have some memories to look back on.
My other day job, or jobs, is working in two schools, which I also absolutely love!! One is a mainstream infants school in Southwater, where I help run Forest School sessions and the other is in Horsham and is a special needs school. Both are so much fun because all the children are just so lovely!! I also love it even more when they come to me for family sessions or school photos.
When I’m not working, I can be found doing anything outdoors… climbing, walking, relaxing at the beach, cycling, camping… you name it.

HORSHAM BABY PHOTOGRAPHER
Having a new baby is an amazing time of your life! You have been waiting for this moment for so long and it has finally arrived! You have the most beautiful little bundle and cannot stop staring at it. Hours just pass in seconds because you are overwhelmed by how much love you have.
But did you know that the first few days also go past in a blur because you are now catching up on sleep and juggling life with your new baby. By booking a photo session you can capture all those beautiful little features and memories to look back on.
You will also appreciate having some family photos, even though you feel tired and don’t think you look your best… I promise you, you will love these photos. I know I do, even though I didn’t have professional photos because I never knew these sessions were available back then.
HORSHAM MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER
Pregnancy bumps…. they are so beautiful! Everyone tells you that you’re glowing and you really do because you are carrying that little baby that you have been waiting for!!
And the moment has finally arrived… you’re pregnant. Booking a session captures how gorgeous you look before that that little bundle of squishiness arrives. It’s still just the two of you before you become a family of three. Or, you may even be a family of 3, 4 or 5 and you’re about to become a family of 4, 5 or 6.
Your family are welcome to come along to capture this moment together.
HORSHAM CAKE SMASH PHOTOGRAPHER
Celebrating your babies 1st birthday is a milestone. These sessions are great fun because your little one gets to come in and have fun while I capture some photos. Whilst most sessions include a cake, you are welcome to bring in a bowl of fruit, paints, favourite toys.. it’s up to you.
We are celebrating your babies first year so I love to include photos of you as a family plus your little on on their own looking super cute. After this we introduce the cake which they can eat or play with and then when they have finished it’s time for a bath… and of course some bubbles.
HORSHAM WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
My style of wedding photography is relaxed, fun and natural.
I like to capture the day as it happens, documenting the happiness and memories of one of your most memorable day. Lots of people feel uncomfortable in front of the camera so I will be unobtrusive to ensure that both you and your guests feel relaxed and don’t notice me taking photos.
I want your album to tell the story of your day, capturing natural shots of you having fun and enjoying yourselves. I will take the usual important photos and am happy to take posed photos but you will also have lots of candid images.
