It’s the final Photo Project of the year!
And I’ve certainly made it a dark and gloomy looking one.Read More
Every Christmas, along with all the fancy, pretty decorations, my mum still gets out decorations from when we were a baby and when we were at school.
Now some of these decorations are barely holding it together anymore (not surprising considering they’re at least 25 years old!) but the sentiment behind them means they get pride of place each year.
If you missed out on a Christmas Mini Photo Shoot this year or if you just fancy taking photos yourself, here’s a beginners guide to taking amazing Christmas photos of your baby, simply using your mobile phone.Read More
I can’t believe it’s been 4 years since I gave up my job as a video editor to become a full time photographer. The time has absolutely flown past and I can’t imagine myself doing anything else!
Little Lithuanian Adomas came in a few weeks ago for his Newborn Session, just before things shut down for Christmas.
I had just completed 15 Christmas Mini sessions with under 5s and it was lovely to leave the mayhem behind and get back to the sleepy cuteness.
Rory's mum brought him to my house to get some Christmas photos in early December.
I should be thanking Rory for letting me photograph him really because this little guy has already been scouted as a baby model!
I started with a white fairy light set up, similar to what was used for Daisy's Christmas shoot a few weeks ago. He loved the camera and kept crawling towards it, giving us lots of action shots!
It was then time for an outfit change where he became Santa Rory and we went and played downstairs with ball balls and the Christmas tree.
I love to try and capture milestones at my shoots, specially in the first year, so it was great when we got a photo of him standing by himself - his latest trick :)
If you ever fancy having a themed photo shoot - there is no need to ask. The answer is yes, Yes & YES!
Toby's mum contacted me a few weeks before Christmas and asked whether I would take some photos for a calendar she was putting together of him representing each month of the year to give out to family.
We started brain storming for what we could do (some months are really quite difficult!) and came up with a plan and a variety of props.
As with a lot of 1 year olds, Toby's teeth were really not his friends on the day of the shoot. That said, he was very patient with us putting him in (the most amazing) angel wings, picnic baskets, swimsuits etc.
He looked SO CUTE as cupid!
I hope that all of the family liked their calendars :)
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.
