Baby in christening dress photo amberlight imagesLovely little Layla visited us recently for a ‘Little Sitter’ session. Her mum had brought Layla’s Christening dress with her for Layla to wear during the shoot for some memorable photos, and it was just so beautiful! We were also able to get outside the studio for some lovely fun and natural images. Layla rocked her session with style, and we were spoilt for choice for her gallery of images. Check out this little star… Read More

Emily ~ milestone session

Baby milestone photoshoot amberlight imagesWow! Such a smiley little babba:) We had great fun at Emily’s ‘Tummy Time’ milestone session. She loved posing for us and we seemed to spend the whole session giggling with her! This is such a lovely age for baby photos, capturing those big baby smiles and expressions. We are already looking forward to her ‘Little Sitter’ session! Read More

Flowers in her Hair

Flowers in her Hair, copyright Amberlight ImagesA simple and beautiful fine art inspired springtime image… We love the natural tones and textures combined with the delicate flowers that create a unique portrait… And it seems we are not the only ones! We have been blown away by the interest from young girls in this style of shoot. Perhaps the mix of natural and pure flowers combined with a more mature fine art style portrait draws their attention?  A beautiful moment of childhood captured, graceful and serene…that time before their little girl hair is cut into the latest teenage trend…before Mummy and Daddy lose their ‘hero’ status…before they grow up too fast! A portrait to be treasured not just by themselves but also for us as Mums and Dads. Read More

Springtime Woodland Maternity Session

Maternity photo copyright Amberlight ImagesWith so many lovely little newborn babies to photograph, it’s less often that we have the opportunity to get out with our cameras, so with the recent sunshine coaxing us outside, we arranged to meet up with beautiful Luisa at a local Wirral woodland for a maternity photoshoot. Typically, the day we had chosen for the shoot was a wet and miserable morning with no hint of the recent sunshine that had inspired the shoot. But Luisa was happy to brave the British elements, and the stunning ancient woodland provided a natural shelter filtering the worst of the raindrops away. At 32 weeks pregnant, Luisa was stunning and serene for her photoshoot. And her gallery shows that even the British weather can’t spoil beautiful photographs! A maternity shoot at this stage of pregnancy is such a lovely time to capture impending motherhood and create memories to treasure and share with your children as they grow. Read More

Lucky Stanley

newborn baby photo copyright amberlight imagesThis little one was a winner before he was even born! His Mum was the lucky recipient of our birthday giveaway on facebook last November for a free newborn photoshoot, and we were so excited to finally meet him! Tiny Stanley was very sleepy for his newborn session. Because we did the session at his home on The Wirral, it meant he and Mum and Dad could relax and enjoy the experience. He was also the first newborn to model some of the beautiful new props we had bought at The Photography Show in Birmingham a couple of days before his shoot. He was especially comfortable in our new posing trug, and we think he looks totally adorable. ♥ Read More

Handsome Theo

Baby on Dads arm, copyright Amberlight ImagesThis baby boy was a little superhero! Unbelievably strong for just 10 days new, Theo was holding his head and almost sitting up! He also made us work hard for those sleepy poses, comfortable and relaxed for his newborn session at home in Liverpool, he was so interested in the camera lens and would open an eye for a peek at what was going on every time the shutter clicked. But eventually he tired himself out and he settled for us to get some lovely images for Mum and Dad ♥ Read More

Adorable Austin

Newborn baby photo copyright Amberlight ImagesAdorable baby Austin was nearly a month new for his newborn session at home on The Wirral. He posed like a pro for us to achieve some gorgeous wide awake shots of this little lovely, and whilst he slept slightly less than some of our younger clients, he enjoyed a snooze long enough for us to get some classic sleepy poses on our beanbag. We were pleased to be able to fit in a photoshoot for Austin while he was still so tiny. They are little for such a short time and it is priceless to be able to look back on images like these. If you would like us to capture natural portraits of your newborn baby, please get in touch with us to reserve a newborn session. Read More

Sweet Noah

He also has his own personal bodyguard, with the family’s attentive little dog never far away and keeping a close eye on him during his photo session. She wasn’t shy either, happy to be photographed alongside Noah for the family shots! ♥ Read More

Top 5 baby items for new Parents

mum and newborn baby, photograph copyright Amberlight Images newborn photographersOur newborn sessions can last for up to 4 hours- because we work at baby’s pace. If baby needs a feed or a cuddle, we stop for exactly that. Our tiny clients have timescale all of their own and we work around their needs. While babies are being fed and soothed we have lots of time to chat to parents about the wonderful and amazing experience that is having a new baby. Over time from listening to our new Mums, we’ve been able to pull together a ‘must have’ list of baby essentials for new parents. So (apart from the obvious pram and car seat), if you’ve been wondering what you really need and what is just a gimmicky waste of money – have a look at these… Read More

Joshua’s Story

Joshua Hoyles Web-14 Meet little Joshua! We first met him at his ‘newborn’ session when he was 27 days new… very slightly older than our usual tiny clients… He was so well behaved for his photoshoot, and just loved being posed on his tummy, he was so comfortable and settled we had plenty of time to achieve some stunning images of this amazing little miracle baby. Because Joshua’s story is so much more than his beautiful photo’s suggest. Read More

Exquisite Alicia

Her newborn session seemed short and sweet; for us, it was over all too soon with just a couple of breaks for a feed and cuddle with Mum! We even got a beautiful smile, she was obviously very happy to pose with dad’s baseball glove and give her parents a very special memento 🙂 xx

Honouring our past…

poppies11…and mentoring our future. So last weekend was the final day of the Poppies display at St Georges Hall in Liverpool. And my 9yo daughter had just been given a SLR digital camera for her birthday, it seemed like the perfect opportunity for her to learn about her new ‘toy’. She was already well aware of the significance of Remembrance Day, but this the first time she had seen the visiting ‘weeping window’ display during it’s time in Liverpool. On a bitterly cold raw January day, she spent a long time studying the poppies, and taking photographs to capture the emotion of the weeping window display. Read More
