Photo Fuel Episode 11 | Discovering what you were created to create with Morgan Williams

I'm Leah!

I’m obsessed with stories of family, creativity, and simple joys.  A nostalgia nerd, educator, wife, and mom of 3, I believe life’s most fun when you’re dreaming big and having kitchen dance parties.

Highlighted family and newborn photography sessions

Developing a family photography business is rarely a straight path. Like most careers, it’s likely that there are some steps that are calculated and some that take us completely by surprise.

That’s what happened to my guest on the show today, the lovely Morgan Williams, based out of Raleigh, North Carolina.

She focusses on in-home photography with families and newborns and teaches other photographers how to create the work they were created to create. But before she could do that for others, she had to figure out how to do it for herself.

In this conversation we talk about how and why she made the switch from almost exclusively photographing weddings to exclusively photographing families and newborns. We also dive into what it’s like to build a business while raising babies and I believe that every time an artist that gets a little more real with what that looks like in their own story, the more we all collectively sigh a little relief in camaraderie knowing we are not alone.

Hi, I'm Leah.
Family photographer, writer, educator.

I’m  one of the first to meet your newborn baby, the one who won't judge your clothes baskets and unmade beds, and the one who can capture the way your husband looks at you with a twinkle in his eye after 12 years of marriage. I believe in honoring people and telling stories.

I believe art has the power to light up the world in dark places, starting at home.
