• Welcome!

    Hi and thanks for stopping by the blog! I am a children's photographer based in Dallas,TX specializing in newborns, babies, & children. I get to spend everyday doing what I love and working with incredible families. I am truly blessed and absolutely love what I do!

    The blog is where you'll find "sneak peeks" from recent sessions, as well as the most recent news and special announcements regarding Claire Smith Photography. Feel free to leave feedback and visit often. I love to hear your comments!


Birthday Girl

Oh, sweet Reese. How is it that you are already turning 1!? It seems like just yesterday that we were all anxiously anticipating your arrival, and I was capturing those first few days of your life. You have brought so much joy to everyone around you, and my hope is that you will always know how dearly loved you are. Happy birthday sweet girl! ~Love, Aunt Claire.

 Below is the video I put together last year celebrating her arrival.

Happy Fall Y’all!

What better way to celebrate the first official day of fall than to share from one of my first sessions of the season! Hope you’re able to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather today. I know it doesn’t quite feel like fall here yet, but at least it’s not 105 ;)


It’s Here: Welcome to the NEW blogsite!

Many of you might have noticed it’s been a bit quiet over here lately. Between getting married and moving into a new house, life has been busy around here!  Now that we’re happily adjusting into married life, and I can officially say the name change process to Claire Mueller is complete, I’m back at work and excited for what the future holds for Claire Smith Photography! (By the way, we’re keeping things simple and the business name “Claire Smith Photography” will remain the same.) No worries, I got my hubby David’s approval on that one ☺ During my time off, I’ve been hard at work behind the scenes creating and revamping a few things, one of which I can’t wait to share with you today.

So, without further ado, I am thrilled to finally announce the new blogsite for Claire Smith Photography! www.clairesmith.com is the one place to go, where you can then access everything from my portfolio to session info. to the most recent sessions and updates here on the blog. Bonus, you can now view everything on your mobile or tablet device (e.g. smart phone, iPad)! No more of those annoying flash plugin errors you’d get if you previously tried to view my old website on your iPhone. I hope this new blogsite will be an easier and more enjoyable way to learn about the studio and stay connected with us.

Now that the remainder of 2012 is just about booked, stay tuned in for new posts from this fall’s upcoming sessions! I’m even going to play catchup and post from a few favorite sessions from last fall that I never got a chance to share. And be sure to subscribe to the blog and/or “like” our facebook page so you don’t miss out on any of the fun!

Grab yourself a cup of coffee, get comfy, and take a look around at the new blogsite. Please don’t hesitate to let me know your thoughts and comments. I love to hear your feedback!


Anxious for you to start posting again! Love that cutie in tHe pink hat that pops up in the header every few seconds ;)

Claire, it looks fantastic! Can’t wait to see all your new pictures :)


Welcoming my newest niece, Reese Elaine. If you’ve lost count, that’s 4 nieces and 5 nephews. God is good!
