Clare Breheny Photography » London based people photographer specialising in beautifully relaxed home newborn photography and baby photography in your home.

Life as an expat means lots of moving. It means lots of hellos and goodbyes. It also means lots of homes. Sometimes homes that we will never see again. Never get the opportunity to walk past and remember the afternoons running around in the garden, that front door being slammed, that window and view you remember so vividly as you rocked your baby to sleep…

I was happy to be invited to photograph this lovely family enjoying their home in Zurich ahead of their move to Singapore. I know this album holds so many memories for them and will be a treasured possession for generations to come. It was a joy to meet them and explore their home- the band room and the giant bath really gave us scope to create some awesome group shots!

Enjoy! If you want to capture the stories of your family in your home then do get in touch. I am now based in London but do also travel.



PS Also loving the plum album cover. So rich and luxurious!

It’s always a day full of fun, excitement and inspiring stories. The Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards is an annual event at which young people are  “Honoured for their incredible achievements, having overcome barriers, suh as unemployment, homelessness and poverty, it recognises and rewards those who have gone the extra mile.”

My job was to photograph the arrival of the celebrities who are Prince’s Trust ambassadors, attending the ceremony to present awards and support the work of the trust and then join the Royal Rota to capture HRH Prince Charles greeting the ambassadors.

An amazing day to be part of!

Thank you so so much to all the mums who came to have their portrait taken with their little ones.

We not only recorded a little piece of family history for you all, but also raised over £500 for NSPCC.

Thank you also to Picture Frame Gallery for hosting the pop up studio and Tigerlily Florist for providing each mum with a lovely flower.

I hope you were treated like royalty by your families today.



As a reminder of why I like to do this… here is an extract from the article I read three years ago…


“Someday, I want them to see me, documented, sitting right there beside them: me, the woman who gave birth to them, whom they can thank for their ample thighs and their pretty hair; me, the woman who nursed them all for the first years of their lives, enduring porn star-sized boobs and leaking through her shirts for months on end; me, who ran around gathering snacks to be the week’s parent reader or planning the class Valentine’s Day party; me, who cried when I dropped them off at preschool, breathed in the smell of their post-bath hair when I read them bedtime stories, and defied speeding laws when I had to rush them to the pediatric ER in the middle of the night for fill-in-the-blank (ear infections, croup, rotavirus).

I’m everywhere in their young lives, and yet I have very few pictures of me with them. Someday I won’t be here — and I don’t know if that someday is tomorrow or thirty or forty or fifty years from now — but I want them to have pictures of me. I want them to see the way I looked at them, see how much I loved them. I am not perfect to look at and I am not perfect to love, but I am perfectly their mother.”

  • Laura Coyle - The words you included under the photos are beautiful – and so so true! I know I’m nearly always the one taking the photos and must make more of an effort to be IN them. Thanks for a lovely photo x

This little gentleman was celebrating being 10 weeks old when I went to visit him and his family in North London.

We had a really lovely morning together. As all my sessions are baby led, we go at the pace of you and your baby, leaving plenty of time for feeds and cuddles. It makes the session very relaxed and enjoyable for the whole family.

I find home shoots are very special as they capture your baby in their first home and I love capturing the whole family and those special baby-gazing moments.

Whilst 10 weeks old is not technically ‘newborn’ I think the  natural and organic images, capture the wonder of his early weeks.

Here are some pictures of his album…
