    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!

    All about Dad’s…

    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

    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?

    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.

    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.…
