Baby George

Baby George

Baby George along with his beautiful Mummy and Daddy arrived at my home studio for their photoshoot. George did not hold back on the day with his full attention and beautiful smiles. Its a lot to ask for a baby when doing a photoshoot and often they get very tired with all the stimulation and attention but George kept going for 2hrs. He must have slept soundly after that. I have a wonderful collection of photos for Mum and Dad and I cannot wait for them to see them all finished.

Ozzy Baby Photoshoot 8 weeks Old

Ozzy Baby photoshoot

This was such a special mini photoshoot as this wasn't the first time that I met Ozzy. In fact, I met him when he was a few hours old in Worthing Hospital on the 15th August the same day Cillian was born. Ozzy and Cillian have so much in common and its really special keeping in touch with mum Kirsty hearing about all his little milestones. Thank you for letting me capture Ozzy and oh my days.. that hair!! xox

Family Beach Photoshoot

These are the kind of photos you will cherish forever. I love capturing close family moments like this, that's why i recommend parents getting involved on the day. This was a location shoot in Rottingdean, East Sussex, both in their home and on the beach. We were very fortunate with the weather not like today. 

Polly, Tommy and Teddy ❤️

Claire 31 weeks pregnant

Ever since I saw a milk bath photoshoot on Pinterest I was in love. I was adamant that if I ever got pregnant again this would be the shoot for me. When my beautiful embroidered dress arrived today I couldn’t wait to get into the bath tub. I had to instruct my husband to take the shots. Although he says that I didn’t and that he is naturally this talented :). I think I have got myself a new assistant, might have to change the name to just.. Butler Photography.

I just love the images, every single one. The colours of the dress and the flower petals work perfectly. If you are expecting in the Autumn do get in touch if you are interested in a milk bath shoot, they are great fun to do!

Maxi turns one

It was so lovely to meet Maxi today. He is such a character. He was cracking all the smiles for Mum and Dad and what a beautiful smile it was too!. Maxi started off his photo session with a cake smash, then he needed a bath (he needed it, he was covered in blue icing), following by some lovely portrait shots with his Mum and Dad. I love it when photoshoots have a bit of variety to them and this shoot certainly had that.

It reminded me so much of his Mummy's maternity photoshoot, she was up for trying anything too! It was really difficult to choose which images I wanted you to see but I decided to go with these.

Abel 3 Months Old

When I first met this gorgeous blue eyed boy he was just 3 months old. Abel was great on the day and posed at all the right moments. My favourite image is the one of his incredible eyes! No matter how old your babies are its all about capturing a moment so that you can keep forever.  I took plenty of photos of Abel and captured lovely ones of Mum and Dad too.

Norah 30 weeks pregnant

Its not often that I get to photograph friends with their bumps, photographing best friends with a baby bump is even more of a rarity. It is something in which I find so special and important to capture this beautiful milestone in her life.  Norah and I have known each other since we were about 3 years old and for both of us to be pregnant at the same time is just amazing and wonderful. We went to a nearby forest outside our home town that had beautiful bluebells and wild garlic. Norah has such a beautiful bump and it’s not long now until I meet her little bundle. Here is a sneak peek of my favourite images.

Victoria 32 weeks pregnant

What an incredible day I had yesterday with Victoria and Steven. I have never laughed so much. Victoria was up for trying lots of different poses and she looked fabulous in every shot! Victoria is expecting twins in June and she looked fierce in this shoot!. I love the variety of images that I captured yesterday from the traditional portraits to the more experimental artistic poses. I was over the moon when she said she would like a milk photoshoot. I’ve been dying to do these for such a long time This is why I love doing my job so much. I couldn’t wait to get back from Brighton and start edited these images. Here's a sneaky peek of what I captured.

Mhegan Jo 9 weeks old

This photo session was a real pleasure, since I photographed her mum when she was pregnant with Mhegan Jo. 

Baby Mhegan Jo was an absolute joy to photograph! She was very friendly, and happy to change her outfit several times for different looks. At this age, babies who are a few weeks old are pure joy — they stay where I put them, and they show their own little personalities!

This little girl is no exception at eight weeks old, baby Yvaine was lovely and content, watching me with her beautiful big eyes and flinging her arms all over the place! Here’s a little preview from her photoshoot.

Seascape pregnancy portraits- Monahlyn

The past few months have just been so busy, I didn't even get a chance to update my blog. But what a fantastic few months it has been, meeting so many wonderful expecting mummies and new babies. 

The photoshoot below of the gorgeous Monahlyn was shot in Seaford overlooking the seven sisters and cliffs. Monahlyn looked absolutely stunning against such a dramatic backdrop. I hope you enjoy the peek into some of the wonderful images shot that day.

Rebecca (Bex) 37 weeks pregnant

Bex was so stunning as she arrived at my studio. I couldn't believe she was 37 weeks pregnant her bump was teeny tiny. The odd time Bex had to stick her bump out a bit just so we could capture that beautiful shape.

It was difficult to choose from so many great photos. I loved her energy on the day of the shoot we had great fun. From freezing our backsides off in the garden to capturing her beautiful bump relaxing on the bed.

I’m looking forward to meeting Bex's new addition. Bet he will be absolutely gorgeous just like his mummy.
