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.
These beautiful twins, Teddy and Oscar, were eagerly awaited by everyone! But especially by their big brothers Oliver and Noah, who each claimed one of the babies to be their ‘own’. Typically for their newborn shoot day, the twins reversed their personalities; no sooner than Mum declaring that Teddy would be sleepy and apologising that Oscar rarely slept, they chose to do exactly the opposite! But we loved capturing these simply stunning images of two gorgeous newborn baby boys with the help of their adoring siblings, Ollie and Noah, and we are so excited to share some of our favourite…
Many of our clients choose to buy digital copies of some (or all) of the photos in their gallery. And of course we love to be able to offer this option, after all, we try to provide albums, artwork and collections that incorporate those products our clients love best… and in todays modern and social media based society, digital albums are proving to be one of the most popular products we offer! And it’s easy to understand why… an image uploaded to your Facebook or Instagram feed is instantly available to family and friends the world over, and when that…
This beautiful baby girl was smiling for us the minute she arrived for her ‘Little Sitter’ milestone session… before we even had our camera out! Liliana was the perfect little model too, having such fun in our home studio, she didn’t realise she was having her photo taken at all, resulting in some beautiful natural shots that capture her happy and bubbly personality perfectly. Her gallery is simply stunning, we struggled to find our favourites to share! ♥
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.
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. ♥
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
We first ‘met’ this beautiful baby girl while she was still a ‘bump’ for her mum’s outdoor maternity photoshoot, so it was so lovely to finally meet her properly. She was the sweetest sleepiest baby during her newborn photo session at her home in Liverpool, sharing sleepy hugs with our little cuddly baby bunny and snuggling down on our beanbag for some dreamy photographs. We loved every precious cuddle we shared with beautiful Aoife! ♥
Our Story… Whenever anyone books a photoshoot with us, they become part of our ‘Amberlight Family’; if they are a newborn booking, their due date is noted in our diary, and we look forward to hearing the happy news when baby arrives with as much excitement as if they were our ‘real’ family! And when they return for a Baby Milestone session we love to see how they are growing up into gorgeous cheeky toddlers. So when we were asked to do a birthday photoshoot for a very special little boy who had been poorly, he was instantly warmly welcomed…
We so love working with little ones during their first year, from the beautiful cuddles we are so lucky to share with so many babies during the fleeting newborn phase, to shoots like this one with gorgeous Luca! At 9 months old, sitting steady and so nearly walking – We had such fun with this smiley little guy… He loved playing with bubbles, and was an extremely perfect little poser for our trio of teddy bears image, we really struggled to pick our favourite!
Oh this little man was so teeny tiny, and still so curled up and scrumptious for his newborn session! He was so calm and relaxed at his home, and we had plenty of time for lovely chats with Mum and Dad while we settled Harry and soothed him to sleep for his dreamy shots. He pulled the most beautiful expressions while he was sleeping, we were lucky enough to catch one of his wonderful smiles, and loved capturing those macro shots of tiny baby fingers and toes! xx
