"My family arranged a photo shoot with 7-olivesphotography while I was pregnant with our second baby. We had a lively 3 year old at the time & wanted a mix of natural family photos & also reflective pregnancy shots. Claire did an excellent job with the whole deal. She calmly managed our energetic daughter, was flexible with what was going on, and all the while took some beautiful photos, posed & natural, that we treasure. I would happily recommend her photographic services & intend to use them again very soon." Ruth Baker, Bangkok, Thailand

"We were leaving Bangkok – our wonderful home for four years – and I wanted some professional photographs of my two daughters, aged 6 and 9, as a permanent reminder of our time there. Claire was so patient, enabling the girls to relax into the shoot, taking the more formal shots first, while the girls were still a little reserved and then moving on to them dancing, acting and laughing naturally, when they had forgotten about the camera. She is an amazing photographer and captured their two very different personalities perfectly; the finished results were stunning and made me cry when I first saw them. I cannot recommend 7-olivesphotography more highly." Jane Gray, Addis Ababa

"As a new mum with a two month old, I did not know how the photo shoot would go, but I did not have to worry. Claire was so natural with the baby, working with baby's timings for naps and feeds, and catching many of her newborn expressions which are now such a distant memory that we treasure the beautiful photos even more everyday. I would highly recommend Claire to anyone wanting professional photos done under a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere." Teng & Martin, Australia

"Myself and my brother were desperate to give our mum a truly memorable Christmas present- a family photo session! When we heard that Claire had set up a photography venture we were delighted. We knew that Claire would put us all at ease, and were not disappointed. From the off she connected with us all, which is a tall task when you have three generations (including a tempermental toddler) in one studio! Her quips, ready smile, and easy nature meant that we were all chuckling in no time. The experience itself was great, and a lovely, very special thing to do as a family. More importantly, we all now have stunning photos lining our stairs, and radiating from mantelpieces that we treasure. We'd have no hesitation in heartily recommending you to others, and hopefully we will revisit your studio in the near future!" Penny & Lindsey Craig

"When Claire came to my place for the photo shooting with Max she looked like an artist and her equipment was very professional too! I was a bit skeptical as Max is quite shy and he can be very nervous with situations he is not used too. And actually I never managed within 6 years to make some really nice photos of him as he normally looks very odd on them... Claire was very patient and Max relaxed more and more and at the end he was tired but not stressed at all. And the photos are really amazing, very special, and Max looks so beautiful."
