About Me

about me page

Hi there! Welcome to my website! My name is Hayley Butler, and I am the owner and photographer of HM Butler Photography. I live in Millbridge, in the south west of WA, and service the greater Bunbury area.


I officially started my business in February 2012, and have been loving every minute of it! After a little over 2 years in business, I finally took HM Butler Photography full time and became solely self employed. I’m loving this new chapter in my life – there is nothing like the rush I get from photography, and the passion I’ve found in it is second to none!


I am a self taught photographer (in terms of camera work and editing) who has trained with some of the worlds best newborn photographers to learn the expertise of my chosen field, including Rachel Vanoven and Erin Elizabeth, arguably the two most successful and world renowned newborn photography mentors. It is through these experiences that I have made some amazing photographer friends, all across the globe, who inspire me daily and help me to grow creatively. I am also an award winning photographer, having five images awarded in the 2015 WA AIPP awards (the only year I have entered so far) – three Silver and two Silver Distinctions.


I have lived in the greater Bunbury area almost all my life – my family moved from Perth to Eaton when I was about 4 years old. 25 years on and I have married a wonderful man and built my own home just near Eaton! I love the south west and am looking forward to raising my family here. My husband and I have a son named Tanner, who was born in November 2016, and two pets, a cat named Nala, and a Labrador named Duke. All three of them keep us very busy!


Please take a look around my website, I hope you enjoy it and like what you see, and if you have any questions for me, feel free to hit the “Contact” form in the menu and drop me a line!
