    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.

    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!

    With Father’s day just around the corner this weekend, this is a special post in honour of all the proud new Dad’s celebrating their first Father’s Day here in the UK. There is something infinitely heartwarming about these newborn pictures of tiny babies being cradled safely and securely in their Daddies arms. The contrast between the size and strength of these new Fathers compared to the gentleness with which they hold their beautiful newborn baby son or daughter makes for some stunning images. Happy Father’s day to all the amazing Dad’s out there! xxx
