Mhari-Clare - Our Photographer
Mhari-Clare started out studying Art before her Dad persuaded her to get a “proper job” & she re-trained as a Radiographer. She travelled the world doing CT & MRI in the process, handling hundreds of babies. While working in the Middle East she got involved with a shark tagging project & was diving alongside amazing photographers and videographers who were recording the project. She found that her passion for art & in particular Photography had not diminished so came back to the UK to study Photography & set up her own studio.
After training with some of the best Photographers in the world including Russ Jackson, Kelly Brown, & David McDonald she has developed her own style & uses her creativity to continually develop the images she makes.
Mhari-Clare is a Licentiate of the BIPP and a member of the MPA, The Guild of Photographers and SWPP. Mhari-Clare has won many awards for her stunning images, including the coveted trophy of Barrett & Coe Photographer of the Year.
Recently Mhari-Clare has also been recognised for her achievements in growing her business and won the title of Ayrshire Business Woman of the Year 2018.
She is creative, messy, drinks too much coffee & doesn’t ever have time for breakfast but is completely passionate about creating beautiful images of your new baby!
Susan - Our Studio Manager
Susan joined Flutterby just over a year ago and is responsible for every one of our customers journeys from their 1st enquiry, their booking, the ordering process right through until they collect their orders. Susan is definitely a people pleaser & genuinely loves dealing with customers every day. We like to think of her as our Customer Service expert!!
Susan fell into retail management after finishing Uni & loved it!! and she is good at it!
She then worked for Next for 13 years & worked her way up to Store manager by the time she left to join Calvin Klein where there was a much higher expectation of standards. Susan takes huge pride in ensuring both the environment & experience are the best they can be whether at the start of the day or the end, and she firmly believes that this level of Customer Service is just as important in our studio environment as it is when buying designer pants!
Laura - Our Studio Assistant
Laura is a lady of many talents and is just as happy on the dance floor as she is in the studio. Laura studied dance from a very young age and toured with many dance companies, until she became a mummy :)
After the birth of her little girl Laura volunteered at the neonatal unit as a way to say thank you for helping her daughter (who is now a big bad 6 years old) graduate through the unit :)
she even thought about a studied paediatric nursing for a little while
until the dance floor called her again. Laura now also teaches dance when she is not helping with our babies
Bryce - Our Social Media Man
Bryce studied Digital Media and has recently returned to Scotland
from the Sunny Shores of Oz
He is a dab hand at the old Facebook and Instagram - He is a man of many selfies :)
But he is also very good at keeping all our tech in order
and making sure all our babies (and mummies, daddies and brothers & Sisters)
look their very best after a bit of digital manipulation - We always say that's what Photoshop is for after all :)
