    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…

    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!

    Using White noise to help baby sleep

    In those first few days at home with your brand new baby, everything changes and revolves around this new little life. 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!

    Here’s a question for you: think back to the most recent representations you have seen on TV of childbirth. Were they positive, empowering experiences for the women involved? I’m guessing that’s probably a resounding no!! I can think of a few I’ve seen lately – both fictional dramas and documentaries – and the universal image seems to be a screaming woman laid on her back in a bed. So that’s how you give birth….right? Erm…..no not really.

    We were privileged recently, to spend the day with Holly and Adam documenting their beautiful Wedding. Childhood sweethearts, Holly and Adam’s style was classic and traditional, but lavished with attention to detail and surrounded by love. A personal and intimate marriage ceremony at beautiful St Josephs Church in Prenton, with their wedding reception held at The Doubletree Hilton in Chester. Their memorable day culminated with a stunning firework display. Congratulations Holly and Adam, wishing you much love and happiness ♥ Jacqui & Jo xxx

    Springtime Woodland Maternity Session

    With 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.…
