    Top 5 baby items for new Parents

    Our newborn sessions can last for up to 4 hours- because we work at baby’s pace. If baby needs a feed or a cuddle, we stop for exactly that. Our tiny clients have timescale all of their own and we work around their needs. While babies are being fed and soothed we have lots of time to chat to parents about the wonderful and amazing experience that is having a new baby. Over time from listening to our new Mums, we’ve been able to pull together a ‘must have’ list of baby essentials for new parents. So (apart from the…

    From Bump to Birth to Baby Show

    We meet many new mums and mums-to-be during the course of our work, and we quite often have very similar conversations with our clients about what’s available in our local area for them and their new baby. Whether it’s questions about pregnancy fitness classes, where they can find someone who can teach them baby massage, or even simply a place they can go that is baby-friendly to just get out of the house for a short time and grab a coffee.

    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!
