Karen Williamson: Geelong, Surf Coast and Bellarine Family, Newborn and Maternity Photographer

Wednesday, February 24, 2021
Well, it has been a bit of a journey to come to this point, and I am soooooo excited to launch my Geelong family photography biz! After closing Yellow Dandy Shop a couple of years ago, I had a much needed break. How amazing it was not to spend my evenings packing orders, or uploading web products (seriously, that takes SOOOO much time). 

But, after a while I started to feel a little lost. My shop had been constantly on my mind for 6 years, I was always thinking, and planning, and working on things related to it, so it felt strange to not have that. It was certainly part of my identity and that was a difficult thing to lose! 

So, I started to dream... what do I really want to do with my time. What do I love. What works with our families pretty chaotic schedule. I have loved photography for a long time, in fact in my Year 7 graduation booklet, I had written I wanted to be a Photographer! So I enrolled myself in a local course and spent a year and a half being challenged and growing in my skills and knowledge. 

And now here I am, putting myself out there, and loving it! I love being able to capture those special moments in time for families! Not the typical stiff posed photoshoots of our childhood. Family photography has changed a lot since then! It is all about having fun, playing together at sunset at the beach, by the river or in your home, and me running around in the background capturing your family connection. Those natural smiles are just the best! Of course I can get a few of the everyone smiling at the camera poses as well.
