Photography Training

Parents with tiny newborn baby photo copyright Amberlight ImagesAs part of our newborn sessions we always encourage parents to have photographs taken with their baby. Time passes so quickly and before you know it your little one is on the move, walking and talking….and that time when you were a brand new family and they were so tiny and new is just a memory. Photographs with your newborn also give a clear perspective of just how little they are; just a couple of weeks later and they will no longer fit in Dad’s hands or will have grown too big to sleep flat out in mummy’s lap!  Read More

Harry ~ 11 days

Brand new baby boy photo Amberlight Images wirralOh this little man was so teeny tiny, and still so curled up and scrumptious for his newborn session! He was so calm and relaxed at his home, and we had plenty of time for lovely chats with Mum and Dad while we settled Harry and soothed him to sleep for his dreamy shots. He pulled the most beautiful expressions while he was sleeping, we were lucky enough to catch one of his wonderful smiles, and loved capturing those macro shots of tiny baby fingers and toes! xx

London Marathon 2017

Amberlight Images London Marathon training 2017 photoOur Story…
Whenever anyone books a photoshoot with us, they become part of our ‘Amberlight Family’; if they are a newborn booking, their due date is noted in our diary, and we look forward to hearing the happy news when baby arrives with as much excitement as if they were our ‘real’ family! And when they return for a Baby Milestone session we love to see how they are growing up into gorgeous cheeky toddlers. So when we were asked to do a birthday photoshoot for a very special little boy who had been poorly, he was instantly warmly welcomed into our little ‘Amberlight family’.

One to One Midwives

Baby bump and dandelion clock photo copyright Amberlight ImagesWhat if you could choose to have just one midwife to support you through your pregnancy journey? Would you?
You’d see the same person at every ante-natal appointment with the option to have those appointments scheduled during the evening or weekends; choose for them to be at a dedicated pregnancy advice centre or even in the comfort of your own home rather than the GP’s surgery or a clinic?
Sounds idyllic doesn’t it? And expensive?
This was our expectation when we met with Laura and Melanie from One to One recently! But as it turns out, this is just a part of the service One to One midwives offer…and it’s free! Read More

When they go down for a nap, it is easy to feel like you need to turn off the TV and tiptoe round, talking in hushed voices for fear of waking them. In fact, the opposite is true – background noise helps them to sleep!

Christmas Mini’s 2016

Babys first christmas photograph Wirral Baby photographerWe had such a lovely time doing Christmas mini sessions recently. They certainly got us into the festive spirit early as we were out and about searching for the perfect accessories for this year’s rustic theme back in October! Collecting pine cones with our own little ones and decorating them to resemble snow ready for the shoot was also great fun. We met some lovely babies over two full days of mini sessions, and were so pleased to welcome back some of our tiny newborn clients, growing up fast, and looking forward to their first Christmas!
