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.

The beginning of a beautiful friendship...

Siblings

Siblings... you can already see that they are going to be friends for life. Today I am finishing off editing this beautiful twin shoot. I cannot wait to show Mum and Dad all the finished photos. The baby session took place in my home studio in Worthing. During this session the twins were around 6 weeks old and at this stage they are a little more active but you can still capture some beautiful, timeless imagery. The newborn package is the same for single or multiple babies.

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.

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.
