    Eve ~ 17 days

    I was so looking forward to meeting Eve, I had already met her siblings, Annie and Charlie at Annie’s newborn photoshoot, so it was extra special to meet their brand new little sister and see them all grown up. Putting in an appearance a week earlier than expected, Eve was such a contented little baby, happy to pose for some lovely awake shots at my cosy home studio on a cold January day. Her gallery is simply stunning, with Mum choosing a cute little cream romper and headband for her sleepy photos. Thank you so much to Eve’s family for…

    Christmas 2018

    Oh my, I so love this time of the year! Amberlight’s Christmas mini sessions have quickly become one of my favourite traditions, and planning these special photoshoots gives me a legitimate excuse to get the Christmas Tree out early. (Much to my daughter’s delight). Thank you so much to all my lovely little clients, who get all dressed up in beautiful festive outfits which makes their photos extra special! I love how much excitement you bring with you to the studio and adore hearing about your letters to Santa and what treats you plan to leave out for Rudolph! It’s…

    Margot ~ 9 days

    Another lovely familiar family who kindly invited me back to meet their new little girl for her newborn session! I loved meeting tiny Margot, and it was so beautiful to see how much big sister Freya cared for her brand new baby sister! She was so gentle and careful whenever she was near the baby. Freya had visited me for her First Christmas photos as a baby, and it was so nice to see her again, all grown up! Tiny Margot slept peacefully through most of her newborn photoshoot, not even waking for cuddles with Freya for their sibling photographs.…

    Matthew ~ 6 days

    I had been looking forward to meeting this little one for months! I had first met his family when I photographed his big sister as a newborn a couple of years earlier, and his Mum had booked in with me again early during her pregnancy. I love going back to families and seeing their little ones grow. Matthew kept us waiting though… Just like his sister had, he chose to make a late entrance and it was so lovely to finally meet him. Snuggly and sleepy at his Wirral home for his newborn session we took some beautiful pictures for…

    Edward ~ 10 days

    This gorgeous little bundle came to visit me recently with his Mum and Dad. Edward settled into some lovely sleepy poses in our natural light studio for his newborn photography session. It is always such a privilege to be able to capture precious first memories for brand new little families. Edward brought his tiny first teddy bear with him to share in some photos, together with a heirloom blanket that has been passed down through generations of new babies in his family. Including  his own special teddy & blanket helped make his gallery so individual and unique, creating a beautiful…

    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…

    Molly ~ 9 days

    Beautiful Molly! It was lovely to arrive for her newborn session and be greeted at the door by big sister Lucy! I’d last seen Lucy over two years ago at her newborn session, and couldn’t believe how much she’d grown into a gorgeous lively toddler. With a family dog to add to the mix, Molly’s newborn session was hectic and fun, but still with plenty of calm sleepy moments for Molly to star as the new addition to this lovely family. I want to say a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to their Mum & Dad for inviting me back! It’s a…

    James ~ 6 days

    I was so excited to hear the news when James was born… as I was also looking forward to seeing his beautiful big sister again. I had first met this lovely family when I captured Emily’s newborn portraits, so it was a real treat for me to catch up with them again, and see how much she had grown! James was a little superstar for his newborn session, and Emily was so happy to join in for some beautiful photos of them together. Because their Mum & Dad chose to have his newborn session at home, this helped James to…
