What our Clients are saying
“I am lucky enough to have had 2 photoshoots with Willow Street Pictures. The first photos of my mother and her two Jack Russell’s were so amazing we wanted to do a photoshoot with the entire family!
Willow Street Pictures is truly a ONE OF A KIND photography studio. Darren has an uncanny ability to capture the best photos of people (especially the ones in the family who say they’re not photogenic, or hate having their photos taken) and pets.
They can transform the most ordinary/everyday scenes, poses and props into the most stunning, jaw-dropping statement photographs. The entire team is so much fun to work with and the results are so unique. I still find myself staring at our photos in awe. The pictures they took are stunning and truly capture the fun spirit of our family.”
“This experience was truly great. My mother and I have a family photoshoot every ten years, but since our last portrait a lot of life has happened; a lot of good and a lot of bad. But, the photographer was able to create and capture so much happiness between me and my mom. When we went over the family pictures, it made me think of how much strength we’ve had to get through things together, how much things have changed, and how our love for one another has carried us through everything. These portraits mean everything to me, and I’m so glad that Willow Street Pictures was able to provide us with an amazing experience and outcome. I’m sure in another ten years, we will be back!”
“It’s been a few years since our last family portrait. We are not the family that runs out and gets pictures taken every year, so what we loved about Willow Street Pictures was how patient the creative team was and how the artwork is top-quality. Darren came to our home and captured our entire family. It was incredibly special to have our family captured in front of our home because this is where we’ve grown up and where we get together for family dinners. Having a stunning portrait of not only my parents but with my grandparents and siblings is incredible. I highly recommend Willow Street Pictures if you’re looking to create a legacy for your family to enjoy for years to come.”

If there are certain groupings you are looking for, we meet with you before the photoshoot begins to write down all of your ideas and ensure we capture everything.
Can I have a headshot created too?

“I had a great experience with Willow Street Pictures. They came to my house so I didn’t need to stress out my pets. The cat photography was amazing. The creative team was patient and calm even as my cats were having a melt down with the flash. In the end, I couldn’t believe how many amazing portraits were taken, even my scaredy cat! The quality is superb and that is what you are investing in. You are getting artwork that will last a lifetime.”
