    Sophie ~ 9 days

    They say all the best things come in small packages! Tiny Sophie is simply perfect. We just couldn’t get over her shock of gorgeous shiny dark hair. This beautiful baby girl was a sleepy superstar for her newborn photo session. In the comfort of her home on The Wirral, with the family dogs keeping a close eye on their precious new charge whilst they too snoozed, Sophie sweetly dreamed through most of the photos, waking up briefly to reward us with some wide awake shots of her big blue eyes. We love her beautiful gallery…♥

    Jacob ~ 34 days

    We loved meeting this little bundle, Jacob was a teeny tiny 5lb 6oz when he was born. He was a very determined little man, and at 4 weeks old, already knew exactly what he wanted – cuddles! He was just so cute, and really didn’t want us to put him down for his photos, he made us work very hard for those sleepy shots. But he gave in eventually, snuggling into some comfortable photos for us to capture this stunning newborn gallery for his Mum and dad. xx

    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.

    Callum ~ 11 days

    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. ♥

    Gorgeous little Sophie was such a sweetheart! We loved all the cuddles we shared with her during her newborn session. She was relaxed and comfortable in her cosy Wirral home on a raw winter’s day, and we took our time taking beautiful baby photos for her stunning newborn gallery. Just look at her little rosebud lips, we especially loved capturing all the tiny details and cute expressions for her family to treasure and remember these fleeting newborn days!

    One to One Midwives

    What if you could choose to have just one midwife to support you through your pregnancy journey? Would you? You’d see the same person at every ante-natal appointment with the option to have those appointments scheduled during the evening or weekends; choose for them to be at a dedicated pregnancy advice centre or even in the comfort of your own home rather than the GP’s surgery or a clinic? Sounds idyllic doesn’t it? And expensive? This was our expectation when we met with Laura and Melanie from One to One recently! But as it turns out, this is just a…

    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!

    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?

    This gorgeous baby girl’s name means ‘beloved child’. It originates in Japan where her Mum and Dad went on their honeymoon, and it is such a fitting and beautiful name for this little newborn. A tiny 6lb 5oz when she was born, Aiko has a huge personality already and was wide awake and so interested in our camera! She made us work hard to achieve some classic sleepy baby photographs, but it was oh so worth it, as she rewarded us with this stunning gallery, and some beautiful smiles! ♥

    ‘This little man has been here before’ stated Archie’s grandmother when we were introduced to her first grandchild. ‘He has such a knowing look in his eyes’ And she was right, this tiny adorable baby has the wisest look in his eyes! Archie’s newborn photography session at his home on The Wirral was short and sweet; He was oh so sleepy and chilled, that we were able to photograph his whole gallery without stopping for a feed!

    Scarlett ~ 8 days

    As Beautiful Scarlett snuggled down into some natural newborn poses for her shoot, she was very clear about which pose she found the most comfortable! She settled oh so easily on her tummy, but otherwise made us work hard to sooth her to achieve sleepy photographs. Her ‘big’ sister Summer who was only 14 months old, didn’t want to be left out of all the fun either! She loved our soft textured baby wraps, and couldn’t wait to join in with the photoshoot. These two beautiful little girls are going to have so much fun growing up together!
