    When photos and memories are all you have left…

    The 12th of the 12th 2017 is a date that is etched into my conscience, painfully and permanently! The day I said goodbye to my beautiful horse. A freezing cold and beautifully bleak winter’s day with a golden sunrise making heaven seem a place you could almost touch. And in those final moments while my heart screamed a silent No! Not yet! Not now! My head was firmly resolute that this was the ultimate precious gift I was able to give her. A closing gesture of love. Yet all I could think was that I didn’t have enough photos…

    Exist in your family photos…

    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!

    Our 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…

    Luca ~ 9 months

    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!

    Photography Training

    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!

    Baby Names

    Whether you love the traditional or prefer something a bit more unique, choosing a name for your beautiful tiny baby merits some thought and a little research – in the hope that as they grow up, they will love their name as much as you do!   So how do you go about choosing a name?

    Aneha ~ 37 days

    Beautiful Aneha is very lucky to have two simply gorgeous big sisters, Eisha, and Avani. Totally devoted to their new baby sister, they both loved taking turns to cuddle her for individual photos with this precious baby girl. Aneha, at only a few weeks old is already a determined little lady, and knew exactly how she wanted to get comfortable on our squishy beanbag for her sleepy newborn photos, resulting in some stunning natural images. Together, these beautiful sisters’ names mean ‘Beautiful’, ‘Earth’ and ‘True Love’ and we think they are truly fitting names for this lovely family. Thank you…

    Layla ~ milestone session

    Lovely 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…

    Emily ~ milestone session

    Wow! 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!

    Honouring our past…

    …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…
