Our mission is to create artistic, beautiful, and natural images in a safe & relaxing environment. By connecting with you and your family, true emotion and personality are captured uniquely resulting in emotive images to be cherished forever. We are honored to share these special moments with you and your family.
“Life is all about a journey, not a destination,” Ralph Waldo Emerson. Our journey began individually as Danielle Morhaus Photography & Nichole Jean Photography. As friends we have created Willow & Moss together based on our love for photography, passion for connection, and our desire to record & preserve the individual journeys of our clients.
Our Name. We wanted a name with symbolic meaning. Willow trees have a graceful appearance, being flexible and bending to withstand anything. Moss symbolizes maternal love while it's color represents renewal, rebirth, life, growth and fertility.
Our Style. Choosing a photographer is a personal process. We strive to build relationships with our clients. These relationships bring a connection and authentic emotion to our images.
"Danielle – we received the link to the photos last night and LOVE them! Thank you again for being so accommodating especially so last minute like that and for sharing your talent. It was a pleasure to meet you and work with you and we look forward to doing so in the future!"
"Danielle knows babies and it shows through her work. She spent the time to make sure we were comfortable with the poses and that she had plenty of options to choose from. The result? So many great photos it was hard to pick our favorites! What a great problem to have! She’s thorough and wants to make sure the session is about you and your family. Friends have remarked they are the best newborn photos they’ve ever seen. I’d have to agree, but I’m biased as a mom."
"My husband and I first hired Danielle to capture our wedding day in 2009. She was laying on the dance floor.. on top of chairs.. doing whatever she had to capture creative and fun pictures! Her work was AMAZING and she captured all the details of the night! She then asked me to participate in a “Trash the Dress” session which turned out to be some of the best pictures that have ever been taken of me. I cherish them! Since then she has done our family pictures, maternity pictures and our first son’s newborn pictures! We would have not have had anyone other than Danielle capture these precious times for our family! Danielle is extremely easygoing, creative and fun! She can even make my husband smile, who dislikes his picture getting taken. What I love most about her work is you choose the location and she comes to you! It makes it so comfortable and relaxing! She comes to our house almost exclusively and shoots in our living room, yard and even in our son’s nursery. Her pictures are BEAU"
"My family had the pleasure of meeting Danielle this past weekend and having her photograph our family as a part of her Magic package. It was fantastic! We started our session at Laumeier Sculpture Park, and captured the images I (mom) like to get each year: a great family picture as well as individuals of the kids. While this venture can usually be stressful with me urging the kids to hold still and smile, the allure and “coolness” of the park and its unique sculptures kept the kids interest, and they actually began requesting to be photographed by certain sculptures. I never once had to pull out the candy bribe to make them cooperate! The excitement of our second stop at The Magic House just a few short minutes away was a great way to let loose from our more formal pics and just have fun. Danielle followed us around for awhile at The Magic House and captured sweet moments of our family enjoying life together. I was also impressed at hot quickly she got a “sneak peek” to me of our sess"
"I love Danielle and the moments she captures . I will always have her take my family photos and milestone photographs of my kids . Danielle is very family oriented and is always open to your ideas and what you expect out of them . I would recommend Danielle's photography to everyone always ."
"Danielle has become our family photographer over the past two years. We have done family, newborn and six month photos with her and hopefully many more sessions in the years to come. She captures those little looks and details you want to hold onto forever. She's great with my 7 year old, he loves getting his picture taken by her. We are always so happy with every photo we receive from her!"
"Danielle was wonderful to work with for my son's newborn pictures! He was not cooperating and decided he wanted to be awake the whole time! She was so patient and got him to (finally) fall asleep so we could get some AMAZING pictures!"
"Danielle has been awesome to work with! My little man is/was everywhere and our pictures still turned out wonderful! She is extremely talented!"
