Meet the winner of our recent maternity photoshoot competition! This is Karen, she was the lucky mum-to-be who won a maternity memory session with us, together with one of our signature ‘Baby I Love You’ frames for her favourite image from her session. Run in conjunction with One to One Midwives, West Cheshire, her shoot took place in July at their Pregnancy Advice Centre in Ellesmere Port.
Many of our clients choose to buy digital copies of some (or all) of the photos in their gallery. And of course we love to be able to offer this option, after all, we try to provide albums, artwork and collections that incorporate those products our clients love best… and in todays modern and social media based society, digital albums are proving to be one of the most popular products we offer! And it’s easy to understand why… an image uploaded to your Facebook or Instagram feed is instantly available to family and friends the world over, and when that…
This beautiful baby girl was smiling for us the minute she arrived for her ‘Little Sitter’ milestone session… before we even had our camera out! Liliana was the perfect little model too, having such fun in our home studio, she didn’t realise she was having her photo taken at all, resulting in some beautiful natural shots that capture her happy and bubbly personality perfectly. Her gallery is simply stunning, we struggled to find our favourites to share! ♥
Gorgeous Kieran kept us waiting… and waiting… and waiting… Finally making a dramatic and very late entrance to the world at 2 weeks past his due date! But it was oh so worth the wait to meet him – he gave the most wonderful snuggly cuddles, being a very alert but happy and ‘chatty’ baby. He made us work very hard for those dreamy shots, but eventually settled into a lovely deep sleep for some beautiful photos.
This dinky little baba was a sleepy superstar. Over three weeks early when he was born, Callum was as cute as a button and quiet as a mouse. His newborn photography session at his home on Wirral flowed seamlessly through our dreamy poses, when we moved him, he barely woke before snuggling into the next blanket for another snooze! He was so smiley too, we would love to know what he was dreaming about. ♥
This article is especially aimed at mums… Here at Amberlight, we don’t really shout about our family photography sessions much on our website, as it’s mostly all about newborns and babies. (And our newborn baby sessions always include family photos). But we do offer natural relaxed and fun filled family sessions, these are usually specifically requested by our clients, or booked directly from recommendations. We love these natural outdoor sessions because they are oh so important for including you in the photo!
We first ‘met’ this beautiful baby girl while she was still a ‘bump’ for her mum’s outdoor maternity photoshoot, so it was so lovely to finally meet her properly. She was the sweetest sleepiest baby during her newborn photo session at her home in Liverpool, sharing sleepy hugs with our little cuddly baby bunny and snuggling down on our beanbag for some dreamy photographs. We loved every precious cuddle we shared with beautiful Aoife! ♥
Sweet sweet William has two gorgeous big sisters to adore as he grows up. Such a sleepy and contented little newborn, he totally rocked our new baby bear hat during his session. And the girls loved taking turns to cuddle him during their sibling photos! We were so excited to meet this little one after already meeting his Mum and sisters during their maternity memory session, it’s always special meeting a baby we first met as a ‘bump’. A beautiful baby brother to complete this lovely family! ♥
Oh my days, we just love her name! Beautiful and traditional and chosen to fit perfectly with her older twin siblings… how did you decide on your baby’s name? Beautiful Georgina was a little star for her newborn photography session and loved getting snuggly and comfy in our basket, she would have happily snoozed there all day:) All Georgina’s photographs were taken in the comfort of her home, while her twin brother and sister happily played with their toys or watched their favoutite ‘Finding Nemo’. We loved creating a beautiful gallery for this lovely family, and are so pleased they…
We so love working with little ones during their first year, from the beautiful cuddles we are so lucky to share with so many babies during the fleeting newborn phase, to shoots like this one with gorgeous Luca! At 9 months old, sitting steady and so nearly walking – We had such fun with this smiley little guy… He loved playing with bubbles, and was an extremely perfect little poser for our trio of teddy bears image, we really struggled to pick our favourite!
As 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!
If you are thinking of professional newborn photography for the little bundle you are excitedly awaiting, then this blog post is written especially for you! There are many things to consider when you are looking for your newborn photographer, and these are the questions you should be researching or asking directly of your photographer before you even book, so you can be sure you choose the right photographer for you and your new baby…
