NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY| WORTHING | SUSSEX | ETHAN~DAY 6

Baby photography near me

When I launched my mini sessions back in April, I ran a competition through my facebook page. Ethan's mummy was my competition winner and received a free mini shoot.  During the session I had planned 3 set ups for Ethan, starting with the potato sack pose and then moving onto the handmade wooden bed (as seen in the photo) All of my props are beautifully handmade by myself or carefully sourced from baby prop suppliers. Ethan is wearing a knitted hat made by my mum and wrap is from shootbaby

 

Once little Ethan was wrapped he was a super sleepy baby. When I unwrapped him for the posing bed shots he woke straight away but I managed to get some lovely awake photos of him with a beautiful handmade crochet blanket (supplied by mum) Mum and Dad received 10 beautiful digital images along with a bespoke slideshow to share with friends and family.

To book your mini shoot get in touch.

BABY PHOTOGRAPHY| WORTHING | WEST SUSSEX | EZRAH~DAY 8

Newborn Photography Worthing

Ezrah and her mummy arrived at the studio when she was only 8 days old. The little girl was a dream baby and slept through the entire shoot. Mum was anxious on how Ezrah would be and was relieved with my gentle handing and smooth transitioning from pose to pose. Little Ezrah's happiness was my number one priority throughout this entire shoot.

BABY PHOTOGRAPHY| WORTHING | WEST SUSSEX | SEBASTIAN~WEEK 4

Baby Photography Worthing Sussex

Just over 2 years ago I first met the Porter's, I was photographing their newborn baby boy, Hugo. What a joy to photograph he was! This family are just everything funny, warm and caring. I knew then they would totally nail it begin parents. Then they called me back to do their wedding in Brighton which was such a special day and I was so honored to be a part of it.

When I got the call to meet the newest addition to the family I was so excited to meet them all again. Mum is the most chilled out, caring person I have ever met and little Sebastian was exactly the same. I don't think he made a noise once!! At 4 weeks old he was alert but pretty chilled and by the end of the shoot he was fast asleep. 

G&J it was so lovely photographing your family maybe I'll see you again in another year or two ;)

BABY PHOTOGRAPHY| WORTHING | WEST SUSSEX | CARTER~DAY 19

Newborn photography Sussex

Some families have all the luck in the world and Carter's family is no exception. I mean look at these genetics gorgeous thick hair, sparkling beautiful eyes and creamy perfect skin. I could go on and on...

Carter is a little rocker at heart at only 19 days old. It took him a while to settle and not down to my soothing white noise but to his Dad's playlist including ACDC. I have to say how much more enjoyable it is listening to ACDC than white noise. I wonder would parents mind me listening to rock music in the future.  

Carter was in for a newborn mini shoot which is something that I will start offering as of April. Mum only wanted a few nice photos of Carter and this package was perfect for her. Her gallery consists of 10 images but I have included a few extra of her beautiful daughter. 

Please get in touch if you are interested in a Mini shoot.

BABY PHOTOGRAPHY| WORTHING | WEST SUSSEX | LUKE~DAY 8

Newborn Worthing Photoshoot

Luke was only 8 days old when he arrived at my studio in March and I was so excited to meet him and his family. His newborn photoshoot started off with some sibling shots. Luke was a perfect model pouting at the exact moment! Then I moved onto the posing bed and used a lovely duck egg blue backdrop and grey knits. As Luke was getting unsettled we decided to do more life style shots which turned out beautiful. 

Every baby is different and you just have to go with them. I often have Mum's and Dad's worried about how there baby will be during the session and honestly there is no need to worry. I have the patience of a Saint and I strive to capture the perfect image. 

If you need more details on what to expect during a newborn session please check out my website.

BABY PHOTOGRAPHY| WORTHING | WEST SUSSEX | NOAH~DAY 100

Baby Photoshoot 100 days old

Gorgeous little Noah arrived at my studio with Mum, Dad, Granny and Grandpa. Little Noah had just turned 100 days old and in China the 100 first days is a traditional celebration that marks the end of the first 3 months of life for a new baby. The traditional Chinese believe that the first 100 days is when the baby and mum are most vulnerable to the elements, so they were advised to stay indoors to avoid illness. Red is also featured throughout the celebration so I couldn't resist putting little Noah in this red wrap and hat, he looks like a wrestler/tibetan monk. 

It was such a fun morning with Mum and Dad so excited to see all the different props and really get involved in the whole process. My studio is small but we managed to fit the whole family in. Two hours later I had taken all the poses I had planned and Noah was a total angel. Mum and Dad were delighted with the results and I hope to see the beautiful Noah again. If you would like to book a baby photoshoot just head over to my website or contact me via email info@clairebutlerphotography.co.uk

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY| WORTHING | WEST SUSSEX | MILLIE~DAY 7

NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY WORTHING

Some babies are just born models. I think Millie is one of those babies. Once she got settled into her new surroundings. She was incredible! Mum was amazing too, on hand to be the baby spotter when doing the potato sack pose. This image had Mums hand supporting baby at all times and then magically taken away with Photoshop. Millie was my first little baby in my new studio. (Thank you for Christening it too Millie ;) ) I cant wait to show mum her collection and hopefully see Millie and maybe her big sister Jessica some day soon.

Studio Opening | Claire Butler Photography | Worthing| Sussex

Worthing Photography Studio

When I decided to start a photography business 3 years ago I never imagined that I would be opening my own photography studio. Originally our garage which was such a dark space full of clutter has now been transformed into a cozy, bright and clean space. My first little baby is arriving on Thursday to test out my beautiful space. I cannot wait to try out all my new props and clothes I have made for this session. The month of February is now full and March is filling up fast. Don't forget to book in your session by going to my website and clicking on pricing to see my different photography packages.

Family Beach Photoshoot

Family Photoshoot Sussex

Capturing your family is very rewarding and I feel very honored to be asked to do it. The shoot normally takes around 2hrs and you can choose a location that you love going to as a family (within Sussex- as much as I would love to go to Disneyland). I take around 200 photos and select the best 10 images to carefully edit and present to you via an online gallery. If you do request more images I would sit down and go through the images with you.  I know as a mum its very difficult to make time to capture these moments and even more difficult to take the images yourself. My daughter who has just turned 3 needs lots of bribes to stay still while Im taking photos of her. All you need to do is checkout more details on the family photoshoot on my website and get in touch by emailing info@clairebutlerphotography.co.uk

Newborn Photoshoot Evelyn 8 days old

Newborn Photographer Worthing

Today Evelyn entered my home studio and my heart exploded! I know I say this a lot but she was so beautiful and a perfect wee poser! I honestly love every single photo that I took of her- I could have spent all day with her. She has the most beautiful slender fingers I think she is going to be a famous pianist one day. I hope you like her image as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Newborn Photoshoot with Esme 6 days old

Newborn Photoshoot Worthing Esme 6 days old

Today I met my first baby of 2018 and what an incredibly beautiful baby she was too. Little Esme was just 6 days young when she arrived at my home studio in Worthing. I was so pleased to see Mum as i have gone on a real photographic journey with her. I was lucky enough to photograph her when she was pregnant with her first baby and then to photograph her first baby's cake smash.

Before the photoshoot I handmade a little bonnet, bottoms, headband and heart which worked perfectly in the shoot. Esme was a live wire but we managed to get her nice and sleepy in the end, thanks to white noise, my heater and lots of face massages from Mum.

Photography Studio Worthing

Newborn photography studio

It has been a dream of mine for a very long time to have my own photography studio. The space is almost cleared out and then the hard work will begin. The space needs to be painted and new flooring put down. Not to mention getting heating installed and storage for my ever growing props. It's a small space for tiny little people. Can't wait to show you all the studio as it develops. I will be shooting newborn photos, milestone and maternity sessions in the studio.

Newborn Christmas Photos

Newborn Christmas Photo

Not long now until I go back to Northern Ireland for Christmas and I'm so excited. I am bringing my camera with me so expect lots of new faces. I also hear that there might be snow coming, which will be even more exciting for 3 year old Amelia. Today Im working on an image of Molly with some toadstools.  This is a composite image which means that mums hand was in supporting newborn Molly head which was digitally removed afterwards (the hand that is not the head). Im really excited about my photography studio opening up in the New Year in Worthing, West Sussex so watch this space. Let me know what you think of the Molly edit. 

Love Claire xx

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.

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
