All About Me

Welcome, I’m Tess Butera!

I live in Williamsville, NY with my loving husband, two young children and indoor cat. I am a lifestyle photographer providing my services to WNY. I have been photographing for many years, but started branching out over the past couple years.

I currently offer maternity, birth, fresh 48, newborn, milestone and family photoshoots. I am always up for discussing other sessions you may be interested in as well. I love to take pictures outside in the late afternoon or during a beautiful sunset. I am also able to come to your home and capture your family where you are most comfortable.

Specialties

Maternity

Maternity pictures are a wonderful way to capture your pregnancy glow. This session can be done in your home or at an outside location of your choosing. Maternity pictures can be just mom and bump or you can include partner and siblings as well. I recommend to schedule for when you are between 32-36 weeks pregnant.

Birth

Birth photography is truly amazing. Many women do not recall parts of their birth so looking back at pictures of your baby's first breath is a good way to remember. Pictures include active labor, birth, and up to two hours after birth. I will attend local hospital, home, and birthing center births. I am on call the two weeks before and two weeks after your due date. This should be booked as soon as possible in your pregnancy.

Fresh 48

Fresh 48 is done within the first 24-48 hours of your newborn's life. I will come to the hospital or your home for the session. Parents and siblings are encouraged to participate. This is best to be booked while pregnant.

Newborn

Newborn pictures are best done within the first two weeks of life as baby is still sleepy and calm. I come to your house and the session will last about two to three hours. I offer lifestyle sessions only. Parents and siblings are encouraged to participate in this session. It is best to be booked while pregnant, but I will try my best to get you in if you haven't had a chance to schedule until baby is already born.

Milestone

Children are such treasures and I absolutely adore capturing their expressions for families. This session can be done in the comfort of your home or an outside location of your choice, which I highly recommend.

Family

Family pictures are so important. You want to be able to look back at the amazing memories made together. They can be done either in your home or an outside location of your choice, which I highly recommend.

Tess has captured our memories in the most beautiful way possible. She is patient and understanding in every situation and very flexible to your needs. Tess is ready for challenges thrown at her and handles it with smiles.

I absolutely recommend Tess! She was fun, patient with my daughter, willing to try different poses and didn't rush us. After getting the pictures, I love them all!! She did an amazing job capturing my maternity photos, photos of my family and just my daughter. It was great that she traveled to us so we didn't have to go far.

We just had a maternity/family photo shoot done with Tess and I love the results! She was amazing from start to finish. She helped choose a beautiful location and she was amazing with our boys! The photos she took were so great and I was more than delighted with the results!
