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

newborn baby in basket, amberlight ImagesTiny little Alicia had us totally bewitched. With her gorgeous dark hair and such sleepiness, she was a baby photographer’s dream! 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

Adorable Lucas

Newborn baby toes, amberlight imagesWe were so looking forward to meeting baby Lucas. At just 9 days new, he was an absolute sweetheart. He obligingly slept for the early part of his session, allowing us plenty of time to enjoy taking his sleepy photos. He was so chilled and relaxed when he awoke that we also caught some of his cute expressions and little yawns! We had a lovely time with this gorgeous family, thank you so much to Lucas’ Mum and dad for making us feel so welcome in their home, their beautiful images are showcased below. xx Read More

Goodbye 2015!

Newborn baby girlAnd what a year it’s been for us! We have moved forward so much with Amberlight, finally our little business has grown up, we had been part time for a while, fitting our photoshoots around both a day job and child care.  A Redundancy opportunity and the youngest of our children starting school has meant that since September, we have been committed to Amberlight full time, able to schedule in more shoots than we could previously, by November we were fully booked for the year, and we were so pleased to be able to schedule newborn sessions for everyone who requested them.

Perfect Emily Jane

Newborn baby on Daddy's chestOur final newborn photo session of 2015 was a really special one….beautiful Emily Jane is my niece! She was 14 days new and absolutely scrumptious! After a sleepy start she made us work very hard to get the shots we were after…..she has a strong personality and makes her wishes known already! Our patience paid off in the end though, and we now have these soft and sleepy shots for the family album. In the blink of an eye I’m sure she’ll be crawling then running around, and as a family we will have these beautiful images to look back on to remember when she was tiny and new. To my fab in-laws Katie & Matt – congratulations on your perfect new daughter! Jac xx♥ Read More

Gorgeous Freddie

Newborn baby boy Amberlight ImagesFreddie was one of the most chilled out little babies we have ever been lucky enough to photograph. With two (little) big sisters to shower him with love and affection, he is used to lots of attention and took to being a model for the day in his stride. With beautiful wide awake shots to add to his sleepy collection, and some lovely sibling images where the girls had their turn to shine! Thank you for being such a star Freddie xxx Read More

Merry Christmas to Us!

JTJ_4864-EditAs our little business has grown and evolved in a way we neither expected or anticipated, we felt with Christmas coming up, it was a good time to treat ourselves to a shiny new website. One that better reflected both us (our personalities) and our brand, one which could showcase our work better to you, our lovely customers, and provide a much more interactive experience. And most importantly give our blog a much needed revamp, after all, this is where we showcase YOUR story, and YOUR images:) Read More

Lovely Lucy

newborn baby girl in basket amberlight imagesLucy’s parents had seen some of our artwork on display in the Olive Tree at Brimstage Courtyard and had booked her newborn photoshoot with us months before she was born. And although Lucy was overdue she was so teeny tiny and just 7 days new when we finally got to meet her! Lucy was very sleepy for many of her photos, but very obligingly opened her eyes for some wide awake shots, which ended up being Mum & Dad’s favourite from the session! We were so pleased they loved our photos of their little one. Read More

Sweet Isaac

Newborn baby boyThis beautiful little boy didn’t want to sleep! We waited and waited, enjoyed lots of cuddles, and got some beautiful wide-awake photos, and waited a bit longer…But they all give in eventually, plenty more cuddles and a few yawns later, he turned into a perfect little poser, and we were able to achieve those serene sleepy newborn photos everybody loves.

Double Trouble?

Newborn twins close-up photoDouble trouble? Or double sweetness! We had an amazing day with this pair of beautiful girls, getting double our usual baby cuddles. Aoife and Leia were both so sweet, and so totally identical that we really struggled to tell them apart. We were lucky to get some sleepy shots of them both together, as they had an uncanny ability to work together in tandem, taking turns to sleep and making sure they kept Mum and Dad on their toes:) Read More
