My Favourite Newborn Photos From 2018

My Favourite Newborn Photos From 2018

As always, it’s just crazy that a whole year has past and another group of newborns have come through my door for their Newborn Photo Shoot.

Looking back through the images, some seem like forever ago and some like yesterday. It’s crazy to think that some of these babies will be turning 1 in a few weeks.

So what did year number 4 bring with it?

Metals, Albums & USBs - Gorgeous products i've recently delivered

There are three main exciting stages to my job.

Number 1 - I get to hug/play with babies (you know, and photograph them...)
Number 2 - I show parents their images and see their reactions at their Reveal Session. 
Number 3 - I hand wrap and deliver their products, which according to a lot of my clients, is a lot like Christmas!

Here are some of my latest orders, all carefully packaged and hand delivered to their new homes.

The Baby & Newborn Photography Association - Who they are and why I joined

As a newborn and baby photographer, I have to take the safety of my little clients very seriously.  It might surprise you to know that the newborn photography industry is completely unregulated.  Photographers like me, who take safety seriously, have to take it upon ourselves to be trained and educated on how to ensure the beautiful images we create, are done safely.

My Week (13th-18th June) - Editing, Coldplay & two hyper Spaniels!

Welcome to my first weekly life/business update!  Exciting!

This week is jam packed full of.....business stuff.  Lots and lots of business stuff.  To be more specific I have marketing plans to put into action, finances to catch up with, tidy files, writing blogs (hi!), updating my website...  All the things that go on behind the scenes of a business! 

#Hootsuite trial number2! I think we've got it this time!

Editing - 

I had two sessions to edit this week - a 1 year session from last week and a sitter milestone session.  Both are babies that I photographed as newborns and once again I cannot believe how fast the time has gone!
Now, if I was a well organised blogger I would have sorted out an image to include but...i forgot to upload one before leaving home for the weekend! 
Here's one I posted on Instagram while trying to work out a new social media organising tool (what did I tell you, business stuff!)


 

Life!

Last night I saw Coldplay!  Ok, so I know at least some of you rolled your eyes, but I will not deny, I am a Coldplay fan. 
We've seen them at the 02, the Royal Albert Hall and last night it was time for Wembley Stadium.  As usual they put on an amazing show with flashing wrist bands, coloured balls, indoor fireworks and amazing music. 
If you're local and are going to Wembley, Stanmore was such an easy station to use to get there - Just jump on the Jubilee line, 3 or 4 stops and you're there!

We're currently dog sitting for my parents, which means 3 continuous days of two crazy spaniels wrestling each other in a way that only sisters can.  (for those who don't know, we own a spaniel and my parents own her sister.  Putting them together = mayhem!)
I'm currently typing as quietly as I can, trying not to wake them up!

 I got a bit carried away once the show had started and didn't take any more pictures!

Next Week

It's a busy week next week with 4 sessions in the diary with everything from newborn, baby and family.  It was meant to be 5 but another cheeky newborn has decided to stay comfy for a while longer. 
I've also got some exciting new summer session plans that i'm starting to put into action next week so keep a lookout on my Facebook Page to find out more. 

 

Canvases, Metals and Frames, Oh My!

My new product samples have arrived!!!

Now, for those who are new to Becki Williams Photography, you may not know about all the exciting changes that have been happening over the last few months. 

Well first of all Welcome and secondly, prepare to set your eyes on the most gorgeous products that are newly available to all of my lovely clients! 

Let's not beat around the bush, let me introduce you toooo...

Fine Art Float Frames

Photographer Hemel Hempstead Products

Fine Art Float Frames are available with either a black or white hand crafted frame. Your image is beautifully printed and mounted to leave space between the back of the frame and the Ultra Clear Acrylic.

I think black and white images look absolutely stunning in this black frame.  The way the image floats above the background is gorgeous!


Metal Prints

How ever hard I tried, no photo can do this Metal Print justice.

Bright, vibrant and full of detail, Metal Prints are guaranteed to bring your picture to life.  They are modern, elegant and all about the image.

As well as beautiful they are also extremely practical.  The surface is strong, scratch resistant as well as waterproof and can be cleaned easily.

The Metal Print is approx 1.5mm thick and mounted to a sub-frame lifting the print 15mm from the wall.


Canvases

We've got a classic here! - The Canvas.

Avoid all of the cheap Canvases on the market and treat yourself to a high quality product that will last.

These Canvas Wraps are produced on a professional grade 100% pure cotton canvas, and printed using 12 colour ink technology delivering perfect photographic reproductions. The Canvases are hand wrapped around professional 2″ thick stretcher bars made from finger jointed pine, guaranteed not to warp or bow.


Framed Print

A framed print may be a simple option, but it is also a very beautiful and popular one.

With 4 different frame choices to choose from in a variety of colours, you can tailor your framed print to suit your home. 
Each print is inserted into a white matt (the bit around the edge), which not only looks gorgeous but also protects your print from laying flat against the glass and becoming damaged. 


Portrait Album

Portrait albums are an amazing way to show off some or all of the images from your session.  Arriving in a linen bag, inside a matching box, it really is a top quality product. 

With many linen cover colours to choose from, you also have the option of laser etching a title onto the front of your album.

Each extra thick page opens up to lay flat on your table, meaning images can be placed over the spine with minimal interruption. 


There we go ladies and gents - a nice little introduction to all of my shiny new products!

Now, do not fear, digitals are still very much available to purchase and are delivered via USB.

If you have any questions or would like to enquire about booking a session with me then please Get In Touch!

 
 

Newborn Headbands - Choose your favourite!

Ok so I may have had a slight case of procrastination a few days ago and decided to organise some of my newborn headbands (paperwork can wait, right?!)

Newborn Headbands

The only problems with organising them is the fact it's made me want to buy more!

Sometimes when I get to a newborn session I can look at a baby and know what headband would suit them straight away.

This beautiful simple headband goes so well with her lovely rosy complexion and grey backdrop.  It's also a great one for parents who aren't quite sure whether newborn headbands are quite their cup of tea.

On the other end of the scale, I LOVE bright colours on darker skin.  This headband was brand new and i was just a teensy bit excited to use it.  (It's actually an adults headband from Primark that i've altered! Shhh!) 

Newborn headbands, Newborn Photography Hemel Hempstead

Now that i've laid all of my newborns headbands out, i've decided there is definitely room for growth :p

A few blues maybe? Some creams and browns for the neutral lovers out there?  OOooo a little crown?!
 

Let me know what your favourites are and help me decide what my next purchase will be :)

A BIG 2016

Happy New Year photography Hemel Hempstead

Happy New Year everyone!

Welcome to what I know is going to be a crazy year in the world of Becki Williams Photography!

I have so many exciting things planned this year that I just don't know what to do with myself!

(you can tell I'm excited because i've used exclamation marks on all three sentences so far :p)

'What are all these exciting things?' I hear you ask. 

Well things are getting shaken up around here.  I'm starting to look into providing an even more personal experience to all my clients from their first enquiry all the way to providing them their beautiful photos. 

I'll be improving my website and documents to make the booking journey even clearer (and beautiful!) as well as offering reveal sessions where I come back to you a week after your shoot to help you choose which images you love. 

As well as my usual posed newborn style i'll also be offering lifestyle shoots which offer a more 'day in the life' feel.  These are a great way to capture the special moments between parents & baby.

I have trade shows to go to, courses to take, props to buy, shiny new product samples to order, packaging to design - and of course i'll be photographing a few babies along the way as well! 

See what I mean by exciting?!

Keep checking back for updates and exciting news.  I can't wait to share it all with you!

Blog tumbleweed...

Newborn Photography Hemel Hempstead

The last few months have been hectic to say the least and my blog has taken a bit of a back seat for a while. 

I do miss blogging and telling you all about everything going on in my bump and baby filled world but when it comes down to the nitty gritty, getting you your images on time is much more important to me. 

Since March I've been getting busier and busier and have amazing support from my family and lots of new and repeat clients. 

My prop & blanket selection is growing (i've even had to buy more storage!), I'm changing to a complete online booking and paying system and putting lots of exciting planning into celebrating the last year. 

With 10 shoots planned over the next 3 weeks (!) I cannot promise regular blog updates but I promise to do better than I have over the last few months :)
