Horsham Photographer Samphire Photography | Family and Portrait Photographer Sussex

Hi, I’m Clare, a Horsham Photographer based in West Sussex with over 10 years of experience. I adore all kinds of photography but it is portraiture that is my true love.

Good photography captures memories of a moment in time which can otherwise fade all too quickly.  The ability to record a perfect moment in a family’s life, a newborn smile or the serenity of an expectant mother is a real delight.

If you love the idea of stunning images that will make you smile for years to come, then you will love a portrait session with me.

Samphire Photography Sussex

A Horsham Photographer specialising in maternity, newborn and children’s portraiture I put my heart and soul into all my portrait sessions. This means that I am able to offer all my clients a great experience from start to finish. From capturing you as your journey into motherhood begins, your newborn in their first few weeks through to milestones as your baby develops and beyond. Take some time to enjoy these moments and let me create outstanding images for everyone to enjoy.

Working from a relaxed studio space in the Sussex countryside as a Horsham Photographer I have the best of both worlds. Offering sessions both from the studio or out and about in Sussex.

What my clients say

We had a newborn photoshoot for our little Leo with Samphire Photography. The photos are stunning, with so many great props and Clare is an expert at making babies comfortable. Very relaxed, nice atmosphere and nothing was a problem for Clare. We would highly recommend it. Thank you Samphire Photography.- Joanna, Shoreham
My partner, newborn baby and I travelled to Clare for a newborn photoshoot, and it was 100% worth travelling for! From booking the session to receiving our photos, everything was professional but friendly. The shoot was such a special and wonderful experience and Clare made sure we had a great time. The environment was relaxed and friendly and Clare’s studio is fantastic. The photos are absolutely beautiful and the package we received is such a great keepsake, something to cherish forever! Such a great experience, I would highly recommend Samphire Photography!- Charlotte, Eastbourne
We have now had two newborn photoshoots with Samphire Photography and absolutely love the photos. She really makes you feel comfortable and relaxed and was also great with our older children. Would highly recommend her!- Jamie , Horsham
I booked for a newborn photo shoot during the thick of Covid and through out I was provided with the upmost professionalism regarding guidelines, changes and information. The pictures are outstanding and I will cherish them forever. A true artist of your form capturing such special moments and a true professional with handling babies too ( a baby whisperer). Thank you for making me feel so comfortable and at ease, the whole experience was enjoyable and I look forward to returning.- Abigail, Horsham
We used Clare for our sons newborn photos and loved the work she does! Clare was patient, gentle and put me at ease. There was no rush, no pressure, it was absolutely perfect. We loved Clares work so much that after getting his newborn photos we booked in for Cody's one year cake smash. Again the work Clare did was amazing. Clare is the best photographer we have know and I habe constantly recommended her to anyone who has asked for a photograph.- Robyn, Sussex
Clare’s photography is nothing short of stunning! Both our kids had a cake smash session with her (4 years apart) and as well as absolutely loving the end result, the experience itself was great, despite having to wear masks and socially distance the second time!! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Samphire to anyone, thank you Clare 😊- Becky, Horsham
