Kelly Williams Photography bio picture
  • Welcome!

    Everyone told me that those early days, months, and years would fly by when my son, Carter, was born, and they were right! I wanted to be sure that he would have a well documented childhood for years to come. My passion for photography grew from there (and continues to grow), along with my determination to capture memories for myself, friends, family, and now others as our little ones grow.

    I am blessed to be a stay at home mom of two beautiful boys and to be given the opportunity to pursue what I love, specializing in newborn, maternity, child, and family photography in the Shenandoah Valley.

    Thanks for browsing my blog, I hope to be able to capture memories for you in the near future!

Baby Sebastian | Newborn Photographer | Harrisonburg, VA

Every time I get the opportunity to work with a newborn and the family, it’s like a dream come true for me.  Some newborns are more sleepy and peaceful than others (ahem, baby Sebastian), but each and every one brings me joy. 
My aim for this photoshoot was to challenge myself and try something new.  Since Sebastian’s daddy is also a photographer, I chose to focus on the family rather than on the baby as I normally would.  I’m so pleased with how these turned out, because you can really see the love mommy and daddy have for baby Sebastian; there’s nothing more sweet!  Enjoy!

Baby Jade Mini Session | Newborn Photographer | Charlottesville, VA

While in Charlottesville for a family photoshoot of twins turning 3 months old, I met a sweet young lady with an 8 week old and thought, ‘what a great opportunity’!  I decided to do a quick set up with just a few poses of this sweet little girl named Jade, and what a ham she was!!  She couldn’t have minded less being put in a bucket, and I couldn’t believe the facial expressions she gave me for being only 8 weeks old.  Here she is!

Baby Ava | Newborn Photographer | Harrisonburg, VA

I’m so excited to introduce you to beautiful 6 day old Ava!  Isn’t she just gorgeous with all of that dark hair!?  She was such a sweetheart and was a good sleeper for most of the session.  Let me just say that I LOVE when clients have some of their own special props available to use when I arrive.  The little ribbon-tie bonnet has been in their family for generations and was just adorable on her, how special!

 

Weaver Family | Child and Family Photographer | Harrisonburg, VA

I started off the new year right for 2012 with a session on New Years Day with the wonderful Weaver family!  They all have such a great sense of humor which made the session so fun and easy.  Three year old Dylan had a blast on our “nature walk” and was such a smiley little boy (when he didn’t have his tongue out).  He’s so proud to become a big brother this Spring.  Check out some of my favorites from this family’s session!
