Behind the Scenes

In the Fields
Here to help
Playing with light
Willow Street Pictures was founded in 2002 with several guiding principles in mind.
One of the many donation goals our Founder, Darren Modricker, established was to make time in everyone’s schedule for capital campaign projects that not only held meaning, but also helped increase community awareness of important fundraising causes.
The entire Willow Street Pictures creative team is known both locally and nationally for our generous donations to many organizations
We are very proud of the valuable contributions we have made to public and private schools, animal rescues, cancer organizations, service dog foundations, and numerous nonprofits.
Darren founded Willow Street Pictures in 2002. Born in Lancaster, PA, Darren Modricker moved to Berks County early in his childhood. A friend of the family and a music teacher, Mr. Bozart, taught an elective photography class and introduced Darren to the world of photography.
“Darren Modricker is a nationally acclaimed artist specializing in portraits that capture the essence of a person without artifice or posing…. Moreover, he creates an atmosphere of trust with his subjects that enable him to capture such honest images.”
He graduated with a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Darren worked as an apprentice for several of the leading photographers in NYC. Here he learned first hand the technical skills required of professional photographers.
Darren finds the emotional center of the people that he photographs in a respectful way that evokes the person’s true sense of confidence, wonder and bliss.
We are story tellers
Our family pictures and pet portraits are creative, fun, and incredibly meaningful to us. Many of our clients are in a situation where this might be their only opportunity to capture family and pet portraits, while others are making up for lost time.
Love the Creative Team
Thanks so much to Darren and his wonderful creative team for capturing my family so beautifully!”

Our newly-opened Harleysville, PA studio, nestled within the historic walls of a former bank building, seamlessly blends tradition with innovation. Thoughtfully reimagined, it now stands as the perfect photography studio, featuring multiple meticulously designed rooms to accommodate photoshoots of various themes.
Meanwhile, our West Lawn, PA location invites you to embrace the beauty of the countryside. With both indoor and outdoor settings, this picturesque studio offers a diverse range of backdrops, from the vibrant hues of spring leaves to the serene elegance of a winter wonderland.
