MEET Claire

Hi there!  My name is Claire and I specialize in maternity, newborn, and family photography for the Philadelphia & Wilmington Metro Areas/Delaware Valley.

I am wife and mom of two that is obsessed with Pinterest, pottery, and photography. Some of my favorite foods are pasta based dishes, my mom's oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, and copious amounts of salt. I love fireworks, dancing to anything with a beat (thank you Pitbull), plus the mountains and the ocean (especially where they meet). Traveling with my family is my absolute favorite thing to do.  

Above all, I treasure my family, my friends, and old photos.

FAVORITE THINGS

What’s in my bag?

Modern Family Chester County Photographer

The age old question for photographers:  What kind of camera are you using?  

I try to keep my gear simplified to a few key pieces.  Here is what is in my bag: 

My most used equipment:

Nikon D750 (main camera body)

- A fantastic camera that also has the capability to do video.  More compact and lightweight than most professional grade cameras.  This is my everyday camera.

Nikon D700 (back up camera body)

-When I started my business, this was my main camera body.  It is a little heavier and bigger than the D750 with no video capabilities but it takes beautiful pictures.  

Nikon 50mm 1.4G 

- If you are going to buy one lens, this should be it.  Photographs close to what the eye sees, this lens is versatile, lightweight. and reasonable priced compared to most professional lenses.  This is the lens that gives that wonderfully blurry background and a more artsy look.

Nikon 24-70mm 2.8

- This is a workhorse lens because it allows me to shoot at a variety of lengths.  I am able take wide angle shots where a lot more space around a person is shown and more of a story is told.  It also allows me quickly zoom in when I want to focus in on something specific.

I use these from time to time:

Nikon SB-900 Flash

Nikon 28mm 2.8

GoPro

Client Reviews

“We had the great fortune of working with Claire Bunn merely by chance.  The photographer scheduled for our newborn shoot was ill and suggested we contact Claire.  Claire showed up to our home to find a colicky baby and two exhausted and frazzled new parents.  She was so kind and so patient and made us feel incredibly comfortable during what could have been a very stressful situation.  Claire is a mother herself and could empathize with what we were going through.  She spent hours at our house making sure she got the perfect shot and capturing what were some of the most beautiful days of our lives.  Claire returned to our home about 10 months later and yet again amazed us.  Her work is unique and timeless and we are so happy to have found her.  She is an outstanding photographer and someone we are happy to call a friend.”

Claire was SO good with my 3.5 and 2.5 year old for our family session. They really loved her because she really took the time to get to know them and make them smile. Such a sweet person with tons of talent!! I can’t rave enough about her and I will be sure to recommend her. Thank you!!
