Clare Murray Photography first began as a hobby before becoming a business. Clare developed her photography skills through practice on the weekends and is completely self-taught. She came across the quote "Be Silly, Be Honest, Be Kind" and wanted to embrace it as a place where children and parents were comfortable, can be silly and have fun while taking pictures. She specializes in maternity, newborn, and family portraits.
I never thought I would become a photographer. In fact, I went to school and earned a degree in Nursing. Through all my years in Nursing, I found that my desire to nurture was never fulfilled – until I found my camera. My camera helped me open doors and create new relationships with people I never thought I would.
Photography serves as my vehicle to help people capture one of the most momentous times of their life, the birth and life of a Newborn child. I love a mother’s face when they see their baby for the first time, or the sound of a baby’s first cry. It is a new life. These are the special moments I love to share with my mothers – the irreplaceable bond between mother and baby.
I am so grateful to be able to tell their story, through my lens! One day, I hope to be a mother just like them!
