Hey ya’ll! My name is Kaela Williams, and I currently live in South Louisiana with my husband of 7.5 years and my two sweet babies (Liam & Lawson). I love coffee, tacos, pretty light and people. I have been in the photography business for over 10 years, but my love for photography all started with my grandma’s Polaroid at the age of three. Once I picked that camera up, there was a little fire inside of me that has yet to burn out. I am self taught and spent many years doing commercial and fashion photography for bloggers and small businesses. However, once I became a mom, my focus switched gears. After my son was born, I fell in love with capturing all of his tiny and fleeting moments and it really changed my perspective with my photography business. My kids are MY WHY. I love to document those warm, connected and in-between everyday moments for my own family and my clients.
Love the idea of photographing newborn sessions – but the unpredictability makes you nervous? Do you fear walking into a new lighting situation, not knowing where to shoot or what settings to use? Wishing you knew how to better prepare your clients & have them feel relaxed during their session with you? Then this course is for you!
Storytelling: The Early Days is a newborn lifestyle course that will have you feeling confident, relaxed and excited to walk into your client sessions. During this course you will learn how to create connection with your client before meeting, answer the number one question “what do I wear?” with a simple color palette tool, master how to keep baby calm and toddlers engaged, & how to guide your clients to authentically connect with each other to tell their story.
