Regina Goins has traveled the world over… She was born in Darmstadt, Germany and at a young age of 4 years old she moved to Pennsylvania then onto to Billings, Montana. Her family loved Pennsylvania so much they moved to Chester County and then Lancaster County after several years. She grew up with pit bull rescues, and cairn terriers but her very first dog was a husky mix she loved dearly. She was that kid who instead of using her parents computer to play video games, Regina would spend hours using it to study every dog breed known to man. Today, Regina has two rescued domestic short hair black cats and an energetic ball of fluff named "Archie".

At the same time she was studying dogs, Regina was taking photos of them with her family members. She fondly remembers being 13 years old with a camera always around her neck. When she couldn’t find a family member to photograph she would take pictures of random strangers with their dogs. Regina says “I knew my purpose in life and what I was good at… it is getting the people around me to smile. I take pride in capturing life from a different perspective.”

She is a proud Penn State alumnus who graduated with a degree in Communication Arts and Sciences. During her studies she broadened her horizons beyond photography, diving into her favorite courses of psychology, storytelling and non verbal communication. Regina was able to further develop her skills on being able to read other people’s behavior and decide how to effectively capture the emotional closeness within family members. She is skilled at observing facial expressions and body language to lead a photo shoot in the right direction.

At Willow Street Pictures, Regina has worked on hundreds of photo shoots over the past three years. Her passion is to create something new with each client that she photographs. Whether it’s here at our studio or on location in Philadelphia, she is always searching for the next great image, that fun doggie to play with, and capturing that emotional connection that ties it all together. In her free time, Regina can be found behind a mic with her ukulele or at home cuddling with her cats Icarus and Nymeria aka “Icky” and “Eerie”.
