  • Amazing Work!
    We had our newborn photo's done with Claire & are in awe of her work. There is not a single shot that we do not love! Claire has a wonderful ability to make you feel at ease through the session & was just amazing with our son. It really felt as if we were just catching up with a old friend & taking pictures! Because it was such a calm, relaxed & quite fun session it made our photos just so naturally beautiful! We could not recommend Claire more & we will most definitely be using Beans & Mash Photography for all of our future family pictures. You will not be disappointed with Claire's amazing work. The hardest part will be picking your favourite picture! Thank-you again Claire!

    We've just picked up our photos and DVD from Claire, I have to say I was a little sceptical about getting photos shoots done prior to this experience but undoubtedly the end result has completely changed my opinion. The photos are absolutely outstanding, they are way better than I ever thought they could be, Claire is an absolute expert in her field, she has taken some of the best photos I have ever seen.

  • Precious Shots
    You will not be disappointed with the quality of customer service to the end product. Claire is super talented & capturing those shots of your precious one is her forte which clearly shows through her photography & her ability to get those precious shots. Her studio is equip with a variety of props & outfits to go beyond standard photography studios. I should know, having our 1st experience at a studio that lacked that & the photographer's ability to make the photos special. That experience was a terrible one for my little girl's shoot & the photos were only a few to be some what decent. This guy only spent only around 3 hrs with us. However, with Beans & Mash, every shot was useable to reproduce for display. Claire understands how newborns operate & doesn't rush the shoot. The studio is set up like being at home with comfy couches to heaters & music as well. We spent 3/4 of the day there with her. She even provided refreshments unlike my other experience.
    A very well thought out & unique studio that will make you walk away feeling satisfied with the shoot & the end results. I totally recommend Beans & Mash photography to all.

    I had the pleasure of having Claire photograph my family earlier this year. I am not one to want photo's taken of myself but Claire made us all feel extemely relaxed and everything went so well from there. The photo's are absolutely gorgeous and she has definitely done wonders for our first ever family photo shoot. If your after a fun filled day with fantastic photo's at the end of it, the crew at Beans & Mash Photography are the ones for you!

  • Always Been a Positive and Enjoyable Experience
    I have had the pleasure to have done three photo shoots with the wonderful Claire Vella from Beans and Mash Photography. On all 3 occasions Claire has made me feel really special and important and beautiful. Claire has a way of making you feel really relaxed and comfortable throughout your entire time you are there. Not once did I feel uncomfortable or insecure, I thoroughly enjoyed my time in front of the camera in all different outfits and locations. On 2 occasions with my photo shoot I brought a suitcase of clothes and Claire picked out my outfits for me that she thought would work best, she also did my hair and makeup and did an amazing job. My experience with Beans and Mash photography has always been a positive and enjoyable one. I would recommend it to anyone wanting professional photos for their portfolio, family or action and events.

  • Creative and Dynamic
    Beans and Mash Photographer Claire Vella, definitely has got her own personal style, she is creative and dynamic. She has a proven talent. Claire knows how to capture exactly what I hoped for. She is also very professional and easy to get along with. One thing I really liked was how she suggested an appropriate location and a suitable outfit to really bring out vibrant colours and eye capturing images.This was reflected by all the positive feedback from Guests at my 21st regarding my photo canvas on display. In the end I knew exactly what I wanted and I got it, and was very pleased! I highly recommend Beans and Mash Photography to anyone and everyone.
