Meet Claire Karlson from @chasing.my.darlings

Claire is a content creator from the South Coast of NSW with a focus on styling, motherhood and photography. She has two children that feature often on her curated instagram page and is a proud supporter of shopping small for her children and creating content for brands. We first met (virtually) Claire and her family when she purchased some items for her son, Oscar from our winter knit collection. Our inbox was flooded with gorgeous photos of her son in our jumpers and our hearts were instantly warmed. It is obvious that Claire knows the power of imagery for business's and we are so thankful she came across Sukoo.  We caught up with Claire via email and she kindly answered the below questions. We hope you enjoy getting to know Claire and her family more. 
You can find Claire and her family over on Instagram at @chasing.my.darlings 

Tell us, who is in your tribe?
Myself Claire, my husband Hugh, our son Oscar & daughter Ellery

Where in the world are you?
New South Wales, Australia

How long have you been content creating on Instagram?
Almost three years. After Oscar was born, I started uploading photos of him to my Instagram. I would dress him up each week in the sweetest little outfits from small businesses. He was only 6 weeks old when we had our first business approach us & ask to photograph their clothing.

How do you take your photos? Do you have a favourite camera? 
Most of my photos are taken on my Canon 6D Mark II using a 50mm f/1.8 lens. I absolutely love this camera! If we are out & I don’t have my camera, I just take photos in my iPhone.

How do you create such a curated feed? 
I try to keep my editing style consistent by creating my own presets on Lightroom. I don’t put too much pressure on myself though & don’t worry if something looks a little out of place.

What is your favourite part of creating content for brands?
I do love being able to be creative with my photos but my favourite part would be the relationships I form with the owners. Most brands I work with several times and I always look forward to it ☺️

Why do you choose to shop small?
I love to be able to support someone’s dream and help make it into their reality. 

What is the most rewarding part of Motherhood?
When you see your children thrive & be the kind little humans you had hoped they’d become. 

If you could summarise your children in 3 words, what would they be?
Oscar - kind, caring & gentle. 
Ellery - cheeky, sassy & sweet. 

Tell us your favourite part about where you live?
We are just moments away from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It’s one of our happy places & I love watching the kids explore their surroundings.

If you could give three pieces of advice to a new mum, what would they be?
Relax, do what’s best for both you & your baby, and make sure you’ve got an endless supply of coffee 😂

If you could take your family anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would you go and why?
Lapland - It looks so magical, especially at this time of the year.
