I have been in the business of photography since 2014, and have loved every minute. I also have a B.S. in Economics and an M.A. in Human Resource Management, and had a progressive career in the field of HR for over 12 years, alongside running a photography business. In addition to photographing people’s families, I am passionate about personal development and growth, both in myself and others.
I believe parenthood is the most life-changing adventure any person will ever experience. As a parent myself, I understand how fleeting time is. You want to remember every single detail, from fuzzy ears to tiny toes, to how perfectly your baby fit in your arms. My goal is not merely that of being your photographer, but to be your family’s visual storyteller, giving you a documented history for generations to come.
With the support of my family and friends, I chose to leave a successful career as a paralegal after 20 years to pursue my dream of being a photographer. Several factors attributed to me building up the courage to make this life change. My twins, Dylan and Stephanie, were in their senior year of high school and I couldn’t believe how quickly the time flew by!
Meanwhile, after years of infertility and uncertainty, my husband and I were blessed with the birth of our son, Knox. Seeing how fast the time went with my twins, I wanted to take this new opportunity I was given to document everything about this new chapter in our lives. So I began picking up my camera daily and, thankfully, my journey has led me here.

Clients testimonials speak as to how relaxed and enjoyable their senior photo sessions were when using Willow & Mohr Photography.

“Seniors are MY FAV! Senior portraits are about celebrating a life stage – for many teens, their entire senior year is filled with milestones, and it is definitely one worth capturing and celebrating, including portraits. It’s their last year of high school, but so much more. It is the beginning of journey to adulthood. I try to make these sessions tons of fun with lots of laughs along the way. Trendy clothes, hats, accessories, hobbies, pets, and much more are encouraged. Let me make your senior feel like they belong in a magazine. My goal is to make them look and feel confident – like a supermodel.” – Amy
