ABOUT DEANNA

Hi there! Deanna Williams Photography is a Niagara Wedding and Portrait Photographer servicing the Niagara Region and surrounding area.

I've had a love of photography for over 25 years now. I have a passion for photographing children and getting those great shots that will be treasured for years to come. Children grow up so quickly and you want to remember them at each stage of development! I think it's really special to capture them at each stage as they grow and to have keepsakes that you can hold close to your heart.

Wedding photography is another area that I am passionate about. I photographed my first wedding 10 years ago and haven't looked back! What has developed are amazing experiences with brides and grooms on their special day. Between the first meeting, engagement photos, choosing photos to be printed, questions, and final preparations for the wedding, I find that most of my clients become friends.

There are many locations we can hold a photo session in such as your home, a local park or a favourite place you frequent. I also have a home based studio which will accomodate up to a family of five. The studio is a great place during the cold Niagara winter months for family portraits and it's perfectly cozy for newborn photography. We'll discuss your portrait session over the phone or email to find the perfect location for you!

Count on my experience to photograph your engagement, wedding, newborn, sport event, children, family, or acting/dance performances and even birthday celebrations. Most people are so busy entertaining that they forget to take photos during such a celebration. Let me take care that every moment is captured and you can enjoy the moment!

Call or email to see if I'm the right fit for you as a photographer. Let me capture your memories for a lifetime of enjoyment!


ABOUT ME
I have a true love for photography and a flair for "capturing the moment!" Her style of photography is a pleasant combination of traditionally posed shots and photojournalistic candid styles. I like to photograph children and families in natural environments. I will discuss with you prior to the shoot the kind of photos you would like to have taken. I have a nice selection of natural props that can be used either on-location or in-studio. That being said, I am also a mom to a very active little boy and I realize that photo shoots with children and familes, even pets takes lots of patience and time. That's why the photo shoots are casual and fun! There is lots of time for breaks for feeding babies and letting kids run around and just be who they are! Those are the best photos! There is nothing worse than forced smiles! I photograph everything from weddings, families and children to birthday parties, sports, plays and performances. No matter the subject or location, it's all about the people I photograph and their emotions, personalities and sentiments that shine through in her photography - creating memories that will last a lifetime. I have a flexible schedule which makes me available during evenings after 3:00pm on most days as well as Saturdays and Sundays. Photos can either be taken in your home, on location at a favourite place or in my home studio. Please check my calendar or contact me to make some memories! We offer a large range of prints, products and digital options. If you don't see something you'd like, don't hesitate to ask!


TYPES OF SESSIONS
"Family" photos include a variety of "entire family" portraits, both posed and candid, individuals of the children and sometimes even the parents get into it and we capture some great moments between mom and dad! On location at a park or your favourite hang-out place works great for this type of session but can just as easily be done in the studio during the winter months or inclement weather.

"Just Kids" photos focuses on a single child or siblings. I have a growing collection of props that the children can play with and be "just who they are - kids". I typically will bring a number of props to an on-location spot or these types of photos can be captured in my studio as well. Either way, capturing your child's true self in the photos is of utmost importance. Parents have commented many times about how much "patience" I have with children. My philosophy is to just have fun! Children can read you like a book. A photographer has to be able to connect with children young or old!

"Maternity" photos can be taken anywhere from in your home, to on-location or in my studio. It all depends on what you'd like your maternity photos to look like. If there are other children in the family already bring them along for some cute photos! Many women I speak to are afraid to capture their pregnancy due to stretch marks. Don't worry about those! Photoshop can do wonders! If you'd like to preserve this special time in your life make an appointment. You won't be disappointed! Maternity photos are best taken sometime around 32 weeks.

"Newborn" photography usually takes 2-3 hours and is best taken sometime within the first 5-12 days after birth. Newborns change and grow so quickly! Time is given during the session to feed, change and cuddle your baby. We will take as long as we need to complete a full session. I've been told that the actual photo session is one of the most memorable events for new parents during the first month of a baby's birth. It is preferred that both parents are available and possibly siblings for the beginning part of the photo session.

"Mini" sessions such as Halloween, Valentine's Day, Back to School, etc. are sometimes held for existing clients. Join us on facebook for all the latest news. Starting August 2014 I will be posting a newsletter each month!
