The Story of light of my life baby photography

Hey, thanks for checking in. I'm Jill, a baby photographer based in Macclesfield that believes in documenting baby's as naturally as possible and the lady behind Light Of My Life Baby Photography. My newborn and baby photography business is based in Macclesfield and offers a different, less posed approach to documenting these early precious years.

Back in 2017, I had my third baby. With my first two children, I had steered away from having professional newborn baby photography done with them. It was all far too cheesy and it made me uncomfortable seeing baby's not look like baby's. Put in baskets & props or big bonnets with bright colours. I didn't understand why anyone would want to do that. Surely your baby was perfect as they were without the need for all the distractions? However, after falling pregnant with my third baby, I looked back on all the images I could find of my elder two and I really didn't have much to show for it. 1,000's upon 1'000's of images on my phone, the quality was a bit meh and I found myself reliant on just a few nice photos that I had managed to take of them as they were cuddled in my arms. Those moments of quiet that you find yourself in as they sleep on you. I decided to just go with it and get a professional baby photographer so that in the very least, I had something tangible and real to keep. I needed to document these special days with my youngest and so I searched high and low for natural baby photography. I found a wonderful photographer who took beautiful images of my children - which I will treasure forever - but on doing my research on natural baby photography, I fell in love with a particular style I was seeing. But not coming across locally. A more simple, natural and emotive approach to newborn baby photography. I couldn't get it out of my mind. This stunningly pure style that had a clean crisp look. Natural movements and positions. No poses. Just baby. I just thought it was timeless and I knew that I wanted a complete career change and to embrace it. And this is how Light Of My Life Baby Photography was born. And I love it. Everything about it. There is something special about my clients. The only thing they want from there time with me, are images where baby is the focus. I don't follow the trends of putting baby's in props or bending there precious little newborn bodies into uncomfortable positions for the sake of a cute photo. I simply do not believe that it is safe to do so.

So, upon choosing Light Of My Life Baby Photography, you can rest assured that your baby will have images that stand the test of time and that as unique as they are.

“simplicity reveals the pure beauty of life”

The question you need to ask yourself, when looking for your newborn baby photographer, is what you want from the experience and what you want to be able to pass down to your child as they grow. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it, if you want traditionally posed photos. Lots of people do. There is a photographer out there for everyone - and that's cool, it just means we are not the right match. If however, you love my style & vibe, we should definitely connect. So take a look around my site and send me a message and let's get you booked in!
