A prime focus of my photographic work is working with people in love and exploring their unique relationships photographically and it was just a natural progression to venture from these explorations into the field of maternity and Mother and Child photography. I called these photographic journeys Beautiful Mother Precious Child - Visual Meditations on Pregnancy.  It is the Journey of Creation, a new life coming through, a time of laughter and tears, joyful anticipation and excitement. It is not only about growing bellies but about the beauty of nurturing and giving new life. Showing the deep connection between the future parents, the beauty and wonder that shines through and radiates from the expecting mother and the father that is being captured in my Fine Art portrait sessions.

Clarissa had everyone in the office ooing, ahing and crying and screaming for joy when we viewed our pictures! So amazing! Thank you! What struck me was how each person looked so real yet so beautiful – I think what your pictures do is make us see the breathtaking beauty and strength and fragility in everyday people – and then wonder if we aren’t just as amazing ourselves. Very powerful. She is so talented. Lucky us!
