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!
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! ♥
Sweet sweet William has two gorgeous big sisters to adore as he grows up. Such a sleepy and contented little newborn, he totally rocked our new baby bear hat during his session. And the girls loved taking turns to cuddle him during their sibling photos! We were so excited to meet this little one after already meeting his Mum and sisters during their maternity memory session, it’s always special meeting a baby we first met as a ‘bump’. A beautiful baby brother to complete this lovely family! ♥
Oh my days, we just love her name! Beautiful and traditional and chosen to fit perfectly with her older twin siblings… how did you decide on your baby’s name? Beautiful Georgina was a little star for her newborn photography session and loved getting snuggly and comfy in our basket, she would have happily snoozed there all day:) All Georgina’s photographs were taken in the comfort of her home, while her twin brother and sister happily played with their toys or watched their favoutite ‘Finding Nemo’. We loved creating a beautiful gallery for this lovely family, and are so pleased they…
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…
As part of our newborn sessions we always encourage parents to have photographs taken with their baby. Time passes so quickly and before you know it your little one is on the move, walking and talking….and that time when you were a brand new family and they were so tiny and new is just a memory. Photographs with your newborn also give a clear perspective of just how little they are; just a couple of weeks later and they will no longer fit in Dad’s hands or will have grown too big to sleep flat out in mummy’s lap!
If you are thinking of professional newborn photography for the little bundle you are excitedly awaiting, then this blog post is written especially for you! There are many things to consider when you are looking for your newborn photographer, and these are the questions you should be researching or asking directly of your photographer before you even book, so you can be sure you choose the right photographer for you and your new baby…
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
Gorgeous little Sophie was such a sweetheart! We loved all the cuddles we shared with her during her newborn session. She was relaxed and comfortable in her cosy Wirral home on a raw winter’s day, and we took our time taking beautiful baby photos for her stunning newborn gallery. Just look at her little rosebud lips, we especially loved capturing all the tiny details and cute expressions for her family to treasure and remember these fleeting newborn days!
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!
…But before we raise our glass to the brand new year, we just wanted to pause… just for a moment and reflect… and say a heartfelt ‘THANK YOU’ to our wonderful clients. Your support over the last year has been amazing, and we wanted to thank each and every one of you for trusting us with your precious little ones, for welcoming us into your homes and allowing us the privilege of capturing memories of your newborn baby during their first few days as brand new little people! It really does mean the world to us.
We had such a lovely time doing Christmas mini sessions recently. They certainly got us into the festive spirit early as we were out and about searching for the perfect accessories for this year’s rustic theme back in October! Collecting pine cones with our own little ones and decorating them to resemble snow ready for the shoot was also great fun. We met some lovely babies over two full days of mini sessions, and were so pleased to welcome back some of our tiny newborn clients, growing up fast, and looking forward to their first Christmas!
