2017:Best Bits // Kate Williams Photography

Best bits…. Always such a wonderful blog post to write and share. I am a self confessed lover of all things nostalgic (does a year ago count? I think so!) and reminiscing in general – so this is right up my street.

Last year has both flashed before my eyes and at the same time, been so jammed packed full of wonderful memories, that it seemed to stretch forever… The arrival of a certain little Finley Williams in late 2016 has certainly changed our lives in ways we never imagined possible and this first year has been one I will treasure.

It has also marked the start of my journey as a working mum! I’ve certainly learnt a lot – including how to make the most of every precious second of nap times!! 2017 was my busiest year yet with so many wonderful weddings, new arrivals and family sessions. I have been blessed to witness and capture an incredible array of emotion bursting moments and loved every second!

A want to say a HUGE thank you to all my wonderful clients who have made this year extra special and wish you all a fantastic 2018!

Wedding & Portrait Photography – Liverpool, Cheshire and Lancashire

This has to be my favourite blog post of the year! Yet again I have the absolute pleasure of re-living all the wonderful memories, moments and total joy from the year just gone. The only hardship of this job is the terrible trial of having to choose a sensible number to share! I have finally managed to whittle it down!

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the incredible couples and families who I have had the absolute honour to get to know and all wonderful moments I have had the privilege to share and capture – what a job I have!

And finally I ended my year with the most special arrival ever… our little boy Finley Robert Williams! He gets the honour of kicking off this years highlights….

Bring on 2017!

Mitton Hall Wedding Photography // Will & Beth //

Mitton Hall Wedding Photography

Mitton Hall is such a stunning venue for a wedding and Will and Beth were just an absolute pleasure to photograph!

I have to start by mentioning Beth’s incredible dress… An absolutely show stopping Jesus Peiro number with the most beautiful crisp clean lines. Beth looked just amazing in it and I did definitely develop a slight photo obsession!!

The 15th century manor house has so many gorgeous period features and provided a really intimate and striking setting for Will and Beth’s fun filled day. The ceremony itself took place in the beautiful conservatory area with heaps of gorgeous natural light and views out to lots of lovely greenery in the grounds of the hall. The whole day was filled with so much warmth and lots of laughter- just perfect! Wishing you guys every happiness for the future!

Here are a few of my favourites below 🙂

 

The Plough Inn, Cheshire Wedding Photography – Martin & Larysa

This was a beautifully intimate and special wedding in the heart of gorgeous countryside at The Plough Inn, Cheshire. I absolutely fell in love with this location! I started the day by photographing the stunning dinning room, such a fantastic sense of history complimented by the delicate table dressing. The ceremony itself was held in the equally picturesque Gawsworth Church – what an interior! The churches surroundings were also fabulous for providing so many beautiful leafy backdrops for the photographs. Take a look below to see some of my favourites from the day and don’t miss the cutest animal cake topper!! Love it! A huge congratulations to Larysa and Martin, wishing you every happiness!

Baby Esme – Family Photography Liverpool

This was such a wonderfully relaxed family photography session with the beautiful little Esme. The session took place in the morning, right before 6 month old Esme’s christening – a great time to catch all the family in one place and lots of excitement before the big day. I really love this age for photographing new little ones as their personalities are starting to show and the smiles are so precious. Esme just loved standing up and had a fantastically proud look on her face, too cute! I had great fun capturing all that happens during a busy morning of preparation including lunchtime feeds, cuddles with grandma and getting changed into her gorgeous christening dress. How striking are those amazing blue eyes! Thank you to all the family for a wonderful morning together! Here are a few of my favourites….

Baby Frank – Lifestyle Newborn Photography Manchester

This lifestyle newborn photography session was particularly special after having captured Rebecca with her beautiful bump only a few weeks before. The gorgeous baby Frank was born just a week after our maternity shoot together, so we got in there just in time! For this newborn session I spent a wonderfully relaxed morning photographing Rebecca and Rich with their new arrival. As ever it was such a privilege to capture these precious early memories and family moments. Frank was a little natural in front of the camera and his big blue eyes were totally mesmerising! A huge congratulations to Rebecca and Rich!

To see more of my relaxed and natural approach to newborn photography take a look at my portfolio and previous blogs. You can also drop me a message in the contact session to chat about planning your newborn session.

Baby Megan – Relaxed Newborn Photography

I absolutely love this super relaxed newborn photography session, so many smiles and beautiful real mummy and baby moments. Little Megan was very well behaved and decided to have a big sleep half way through. I have to admit I do love capturing those really cute sleepy poses and little pouts! Megan didn’t disappoint and made the sweetest faces throughout. It is such a complete privilege to be able to capture such amazingly special moments in a families life. Massive congratulations to Sarah and Jordi!
