Willow Studio is run by Metro Detroit native, Beth Bailey. Beth is passionate about capturing connections and preserving moments. Raised in the Dearborn area, her mom ran a home based child care center, which meant that babies and small children were a part of everyday life. Beth took her first photography class in college while also working as a teacher at a small child care center (like mother, like daughter). Left with little daylight hours in that fall semester, she turned her camera on the babies she was with everyday and began to photograph them, catching them in candid moments.
"As I began to observe the little ones in my class, I began to notice their incredible desire to form a bond with their caregivers and to explore their world. I became a little obsessed with seeing these tiny people grow and learn" - Beth
