I have listed the most commonly asked questions below. If you have any further questions please contact me.

You will start by contacting me by clicking book a photoshoot,  e-mailing me on info@clairebutlerphotography.co.uk or calling me on 077 235 00534 and I will try to find a suitable date for your session.

It’s ideal to do the newborn session between 4 and 10 days, after two weeks babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up.  You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date.  I will save your due date in my calendar and make sure to leave a couple of sessions free around the date for early and late arrivals. Then, I’ll ask you to give me a call, e-mail or even a quick text to let me know your new baby has arrived and we can schedule in the session. If you’re expecting a boy and you choose to circumcise I require a 7 day delay to allow for healing)

At the moment your session can take place in my home studio or from your own home. I prefer working with natural light so if you have a nice bright room in your home it makes photographing a lot easier. 

Mini session will take around an hour but the full session can take can take 2-3 hours, allowing plenty of time for feeding and comforting.

After our session I will post a sneak peek on my Facebook page. If you do not want this please let me know. 

Then I will begin to edit your images this can take up to 2-3 weeks as I edit each photo individually by smoothing the skin, cleaning up backgrounds, enhancing colours and adding my own artistic touch. 

Once this is complete I will email you a dropbox link to your private online gallery. The online gallery will have the carefully selected and edited images.

Once full payment is received your prints will be ordered; they can take 2-3 weeks for delivery and longer for canvas, books or albums. All images will be stored and archived after 60 days. 

You can order your prints by sending me an email with your selections. An invoice will then be sent back with payment details. Payment can be made by online payment / paypal or cash.

The bespoke photoshoot is perfect for someone looking for a photoshoot that are not listed on my website. However I am happy to discuss your ideas with you. 

The cake smash photoshoot is a brilliant way to celebrate your little ones first birthday. Before the shoot we will discuss the type of cake that you would like, we will look at style, colour and sponge. There is other items that we will discuss during this time like outfits and props. 

I have done lots of different location photoshoots from beach, forest, countryside and city. As long as they are 1hr from my Worthing studio I am happy to go there. 

Yes of course you can. But please let me know if you are sharing any of the images on any social media. I want to make sure that the images best represent my style.  

Unless you have booked a family photoshoot, it is better to keep it to mum and dad during the newborn shoot. (I can try and get a few quick pictures of siblings if there is time)

Children pick up bugs all the time, it does happen and cannot be helped. Unfortunately you will loose some of your deposit for your photoshoot.
