Thank you so much for the lovely delivery, from the photography to the little details you've been fantastic.

Beside the usual cat videos, over the last few years the world has been taken by storm by children watching other children open and play with toys, adults acting out scenes with toys (yes, this is apparently acceptable) and tweenagers falling in love with YouTubers just like we did with pop stars.
If you think youtube is just for children and weirdoes though, you are very wrong!
Mum (and dad!) vloggers are taking to YouTube in force, sharing the ups and downs of pregnancy, children and family life.
Back in 2016 I met Harper and her family for her newborn photo shoot.
She was tiny little bundle of sleepiness, who slept like a dream, snuggled in the cosiness of her mum and dad's gorgeous house. See how tiny she is in her dad's arms? Well stick around...Read More
Deciding what theme, colours and designs you'd like for your new baby's nursery is an incredibly exciting (if a little daunting...) process. The world of colour, pattern and design is your oyster.
If you've chosen to go the colourful route - high five to you! I think colourful nursery's give the impression of a really fun and happy space to grow up.
I hope this blog post fills you with inspiration and helps designing your new baby's room that little bit easier.Read More
To start things off I used a lovely cream fluffy blanket. You'll have to trust me on this but it is SO soft! No wonder babies sleep so well on it.
I laid him down and got some natural photos while he got comfy and then when he was in a nice deep sleep I wrapped him up in a dark grey wrap.
I first met Alfred and his family 2 years ago at their house in Hemel Hempstead. He was only a few days old and a teeny tiny bundle compared to the little boy he is now!Read More
“We couldn’t recommend Becki highly enough - she was brilliant with our daughter who was instantly relaxed around her meaning we got amazing natural photographs that we are so happy with. She captured her personality perfectly. The photos and canvases are such high quality and we will definitely be using her again for baby number 2!”

At only a few days old, she was a gorgeous little newborn model and I spent a few hours with her family getting a mixture of sleepy posed photos and more relaxed family photos.
Their conservatory was full of the most gorgeous natural light and was the perfect spot for cuddles and sleepy warmth.
There are many reasons I love being a newborn photographer. Yes there is the fact I get to work with teeny tiny humans on a weekly basis, but I also get to deliver gorgeous products for families to remember those first teeny tiny days forever.
Here are some of my latest orders all carefully packaged and hand delivered to their new homes.Read More
There is no special occasion or special reason, I just think they are pretty and I think they will bring me joy (Hello Marie Kondo fans)
Even while I was buying them though I felt a bit of guilt. Spending money on things you don't need can be tough.
But that soon vanished when the shop assistant spoke to me. She asked me if I wanted the price taken off the flowers.
I was almost apologetic with my reply when I told her that actually they were for me so it didn't matter.
And her reply?Read More
That was until a couple of editions ago when for some reason I decided to give it a read. It turns out it is quite the little nugget of local information.
Now, as many of you are busy parents whose time is taken up with much more valuable things like nappies and a constant trail of child destruction, I have picked out the highlights of what you can expect over the summer in and around Hemel Hempstead.Read More
After dreaming of being able to wear boots for so long, the longing for summer shoes returns along with the earning for longer days and the smell of cut grass. The sun starts to make a few more appearances and going out without a coat for the first time this year becomes an event.
For baby photographers, it also means it's time for outdoor sessions to begin again!
Along with Spring comes blossom - so much beautiful blossom! Parks are filled with the most gorgeous white and pinks, and don't forget the daffodils.
In Hemel Hempstead, my favourite spot for blossom is Gadebridge Park.
Gadebridge park is a great location for photo shoots all year round. You have the white bridge, the river, the trees, the park and the walled garden. It's in Spring though that it really comes into its own.
My tree knowledge is severely lacking, but what I can tell you is that it's all very pretty! The images above were taken just as the blossom had started to fall.
I did try and take a video but typically whenever I pressed record the wind stopped!
Around this time the spring flowers are planted in the Walled Garden as well. That little garden is so perfectly looked after, it's stunning.
It's not just the big parks that get blossom though.
A few weeks ago I did two Maternity photo shoots on a football playing field in Woodhall Farm.
How can they look pretty? I hear you ask.
Well take a look and judge for yourself.
The white blossom that lined the edge of the field was simply stunning. It worked perfectly in focus, next to each lady and also blurred in the background.
I also love the yellow tree blossom used to frame the edge of the images.
Alas, spring is over for another year but that's ok because that means summer is on it's way!
Let's say goodbye to coats and hello to sunshine (hopefully!)
This little guy is the perfect example of just how fast life can go some times.
One minute you're 22, at Uni and your housemate is throwing Maoam at you down the corridor. Next thing you know, you're in your 30s and you're photographing their newborn son.
Life as a 1 year old is one big adventure. Every door must be opened, every stair climbed and every raised surface fallen off of. It's a time of constant curiosity.
It is also a time of throwing routine out the window whenever you fancy it, which is what happened in Isla's case.Read More
Abby's family were bought a gift voucher for three sessions, which they decided to use at 4 months, 8 months & 1 year.
Time has flown by, as it has a habit of doing, and a few weeks ago I completed Abby's last session.
For this session, Abby's family decided to turn it into a family photo shoot, including her mum, dad and two big sisters.Read More
Everyone meet Lylah. This gorgeous little thing was towards the older end of the timescale that I offer newborn photo shoots so she was on the wriggly side!
My main aim for her session was to get some beautiful images with her mum as well as some images in props.
I first met this little family back in 2015 when they had their first son Casper.
I travelled to their house in St. Albans for their session where little Casper played hard ball and did not want to settle. He wasn't having the happiest of days so in the end I decided it would be best if I went away and tried again another day.
In the end his parents got a lovely gallery of images to choose from of both awake and sleepy images.
I love photographing twins. Some photographers think of it as extra work but I love having a spare baby. One twin crying? That's ok, just pass me the other until we're good to go again.
I also find that when they are together they settle each other so well. They're so used to being together in the womb that they love being close.
That was exactly the case with Jacob and Imogen when I met them and their mum and dad a few weeks ago.Read More
I first met Harper for her newborn photo shoot around 8 months ago. She was the perfect little sleepy model and we got a selection of gorgeous images - I mean, how cute is the image below?! And that hair!!
As usual time disappeared in the blink of an eye and it was time for Harper's next milestone session. I headed to their house and we got some gorgeous lifestyle family images as well as shots of Harper by herself.
I do sessions in all kinds of houses and every now and then I fall in love. Beautifully decorated, loads of space and gorgeous sunlight - this house is a dream!
Hemel Hempstead Maternity, Newborn & Baby Photographer.
My name is Becki and I am chief photographer, editor, newborn poser, dribble wiper, song singer and toddler chaser of Becki Williams Photography! I strongly believe that if a photographer does not leave your shoot with sore limbs or muddy knees (or a muddy bum, it's happened!) then they're not doing it right! I love getting to know families as they grow and capturing moments in time for them to treasure forever.
