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!

Catlett Family | Child and Family Photographer | Harrisonburg, VA

The change back and forth of the weather has been crazy!  I just posted a blog last week mentioning how beautiful the weather has been lately, and as a matter of fact, the last couple of days have been just that…beautiful!  This past Saturday though for the Catlett family was freezing, and they were such good sports about it.  Sweet little Abigail kept insisting that she wasnt cold and smiled through it all, making some faces here and there! 🙂  Enjoy this precious little girl and her parents!





Friends are like Family | Family and Child Photographer | Harrisonburg, VA

Since November is a month of being thankful, I’ve certainly been thankful for a few beautifully warm days this month!  Last weekend was certainly one of those days and perfect for a photoshoot at Wildwood Park in Bridgewater.  Just a couple of really great friends and their kids playing together felt like a family to me. 
P.S. Kids this age sometimes just dont find me funny, but boy did I try!  Enjoy!

Baby Chapman | Newborn Photographer | Waynesboro, VA

This family is absolutely beautiful, I mean just look at them!  These beautiful parents definately make beautiful babies, and their new little arrival is no exception.  Chapman is so precious sleeping but don’t let him fool you, he was certainly not into cooperating with the camera.  It took every ounce of patience between his mom and I to help him sleep…which didn’t last very long once he did close his eyes.  It’s fair to say that we both worked for every photo of this squirmy little guy, round two might be in order!  Enjoy a snapshot of the memories this family will cherish always.

Villasenor Family | Family and Child Photographer | Harrisonburg, VA

This weekend it was great to be able to work with another photographer in the Harrisonburg, VA area and essentially swap sessions!  We visited the beautiful Hone Quarry recreational area until the sun fell below the trees, then finished our session at the infamous Silver Lake Mill…a favorite this fall as many of you know!  Enjoy this beautiful family expecting their second child.
