In-Home Photoshoot FAQs
When do you scout my home for ideas?
On the day of your photoshoot we arrive early enough to walk around your estate to get a lay of the land and gather ideas. Our artists travel frequently and are great at finding the best spots for your photoshoot.
Do I need to do anything like move furniture beforehand?
Not at all! When we first arrive, we’ll scout your home for great settings and carefully move furniture as needed. At the end of the photoshoot, we’ll move everything back and it will be like we were never there.
Can you photograph indoors and outdoors at my home?
Absolutely! We can capture your family outdoors in your yard, on your porch or wherever your family spends time taking in nature. We can also photograph indoors in the favorite rooms they like to hang out or if you want a studio look, we can set up a seamless background in your garage as it provides ample room.
Do I need a room with good lighting or windows?
Our artists bring lighting equipment so we are able to work in all kinds of lighting environments. We also bring along a large computer monitor so throughout the photoshoot you are able to review what we have created.
Indoor Studio PhotoShoots
Studio Seamless Photoshoot FAQs
What is a seamless?
Our seamless is a 12ft wide backdrop that creates a clean and elegant look for your portraits.

After years of studio photography, we’ve found our signature grey seamless provides the perfect foundation to create a professional quality. It is a neutral background that eliminates distractions, is flattering for all skintones and is incredibly versatile.
If you prefer a different color seamless, we can special order the color you choose for an additional fee.
What if my pets trash the seamless?
Not a problem! Because we photograph pets frequently, we are used to the chaos and messes that come with it. For each photoshoot, we start with a fresh roll and are able to touch up any scratches or drool that might show in your portraits.

What our Clients are saying
“The Willow Street Pictures creative team was more than willing to accommodate and bring our vision to life! We didn’t stop just at a few studio photos either. We went to a local outdoor hidden gem found by the Founder, Darren, and literally got into the weeds and took amazing photos of our dog. The evening ended up with everyone in the stream, to get a few last good shots. As parents of a dog who may not be with us in the next few years, we’re so grateful to Willow Street Pictures for not just creating artwork that we will cherish long after our dog passes, but for creating a life long memory of a fun day spent completely focused on our good boy!”
“I had a great experience with Willow Street Pictures. They came to my house so I didn’t need to stress out the pets. The pet photography was amazing. The creative team was patient and calm even as my animals were having a melt down with the camera’s flash. In the end I couldn’t believe how many amazing portraits were taken of each of my pets, even my scaredy cat!
The quality is superb and you are getting artwork that will last a lifetime. I highly recommend this studio if you want pet photography that goes beyond the norm.“
“Our experience with Willow Street Pictures was wonderful from start to finish. Our dog was diagnosed with cancer and we wanted family pictures with her taken quickly. They got us scheduled immediately and came to our home because our dog’s ability to travel is limited. They transformed our living room into a studio with their signature seamless and also took some photos at areas of our choosing in our home. We wanted something to capture our relationship and love for our dog and that’s exactly what we got, in addition to beautiful, artistic photos of her.”
