Stress-free photography experiences for you and yours in Farmington, MN and Dubuque, IA

Hi, friends! I'm Lindsey, and I’m dedicated to providing you with photography experiences that are relaxed, flexible and go-with-the-flow (qualities also exhibited by willow tree branches and the ease at which they move in the wind, hence the name Willow Grove Studios).

I have a bag of tricks that’s pretty deep. And it’s only gotten deeper since I began photographing people nearly a decade ago. I use that bag of tricks to provide stress-free photography for people just like you -- people who want to invest in capturing the laughter, smiles, love and memories that are sandwiched between the chaotic moments of life.


You deserve a special space and time for you and your loved ones to be greeted with a smile and surrounded in positivity.

It's a time when problems can be left behind and life can be simple. So let’s showcase your kiddo’s giggles when they’re having fun, your newborn’s tiny features, or the way your partner looks at you when you smile. These seemingly simple moments are the meaningful moments you’ll want to remember forever, and I couldn’t be more honored to capture them for you and help you turn them into heirloom pieces.

Between my 9 years of experience running photo sessions and the countless hours of education I’ve gotten from veteran photographers, I have the tools to help make your life a little more stress-free and joy-filled. All of my tips and tricks are available to you -- even as soon as your pre-session consultation. Learn more about what’s in the bag of tricks I use for newborn photography sessions, kids and families sessions, and weddings

I'd love to connect, bring out the best in you, and provide you a high-quality photography experience that will bring you and others joy for years to come.

So come, check out my bag of tricks, and have a Smartie party with me (Yes, I’ve become known for always carrying this mess-free candy with me to incent and reward kiddos)!



My family…

My physical therapist hubby Chris and I have two kiddos: Lincoln (our sports-loving 12-12-12 baby) and Maddie Mae (our independent and talkative little lady).



I'm a lifelong learner and strive daily to enhance the quality of your photos and your experience.

I'm a member of the Professional Photographer's of America and I've invested in an in-person workshop from the highly-acclaimed newborn photography expert Amy McDaniel of Dewdrops Photography out of Auburn, AL.

I have a home photography studio in Farmington, MN.

I make 1-2 trips each month to photograph my clients on-location and in my pop-up photography studio in Dubuque, IA. I also have the joy of spending time with friends and family while staying in the Farley, IA area.

I'm a volleyballer!

I play, referee, watch and am “retired” from coaching.

Simplicity and comfort are my jam.

When I'm not wearing LuLaRoe leggings and a Carly dress during a session, you can find me in athletic leggings and a t-shirt.
