“I am so very lucky to have incredible people cross my path each and every day.  One of those people that crossed my path was John Wills. John and I arranged to have a photo shoot because I have a book that is being published, and I needed a professional head shot.

As an emerging writer and creative person, I am transitioning from private to professional.  In other words, I am starting to share who I am and what I do. Part of that includes a new web site and a book.  I needed headshots. A friend of mine suggested John and I am glad that she did. The whole experience with John was brilliant.  From the first phone call to the quick delivery of my photos. The whole experience was very relaxed and fun. I think that is what sticks with me the most.  Like many people, I do not feel that comfortable in front of the camera (why I am a writer, not an actress), and yet John made it cozy and welcoming. The whole process was a collaboration and discussion, not mechanical and directive.  Through his manner and personality, John was able to draw out and capture who I am in photos. The finished photos he created I want to share with everyone, any chance I get because they are fun and they are truly me looking back at the world.  Thank you John, I can hardly wait to incorporate them onto my site and business cards, and of course my new book.”  –  JennyQ

Just finished a crazy cool custom portrait session with Kayley. The image below is just one of the basic ones I did for here today but I wanted to get one up fast to show everyone. I will be doing a more elaborate custom composite for this beautiful young lady in the next few days. Check out what Hayley and her mom had to say about their experience with our studio and make sure you keep checking back in to see what magical image I create for their wall portrait. 

“My daughter has loved Alice in Wonderland since she was a child. She is now a teenager with a very dramatic flare, and asked for an opportunity to re-enact her favourite character in a photoshoot. Today her wish came true! John did an amazing custom Mad Hatter shoot with her! I cannot say enough good things about John. He is beyond great with our entire family, so friendly, welcoming, professional and respectful. He made our daughter feel so comfortable and relaxed! I actually left the shoot as she wanted to be one-on-one with him and my watching was making her nervous lol! When I returned John showed me a few of the unedited photo’s and they were absolutely incredible! I cannot wait to see what John comes up with for the background, special effects and edits. He has such a creative mind and talent for bringing still images to life. My daughter had the best time today and John helped create memories for her that will last a lifetime! I highly recommend John to anyone, especially for his work with children and teens. We are beyond happy!” – Jennifer Vanos

“Great experience! John made me feel really comfortable especially after I told him how nervous I was. He was encouraging/excited about it, which made me feel like I wanted to do more. He got my creativity going and I loved all the poses we did. I feel like we covered everything I wanted to do and more. John was very open and inclusive to my ideas. He always made sure I was comfortable. Overall, 10 out of 10…would do it again!” – Kayley

Parts of this costume were provided by the amazing Owner of “Party Corner” in Guelph. Missy also did the incredible make up for Kayley.

Yeeeeee haaaaa another AMAZING Enchanted Forest Promo is in the books. Our beautiful fairies and princesses are now coming in for their purchasing sessions to see their magical photos.

First in the show room was the very beautiful Mackenzie. Check out two of the photos they decided to get and one of them is going to be a stunning 20 x 30 custom framed canvas for their wall. Mackenzie was a superstar in front of the camera, doing everything I asked and then some.

She made it VERY hard for her parents to narrow the images down to their favourites. I think they did a great job.

We are already getting inquires asking when we are doing the Enchanted Forest again. We will decide on a date in the very near future. So if you want to know when we announce the new date please click on THIS LINK to request an add to my private FACEBOOK reward group. I put all my promos there first before I announce them publicly.

NEXT DATE is now set Saturday April 13th, 2019 CHECK IT OUT HERE.

Check out what one or our amazing clients had to say about their beautiful daughters session. 

“On Saturday Oct 27 2018 I booked a spot to have my daughter Vanessa participate in John’s Enchanted Fairy Forest photo shoot, all I can say is WOW, AMAZING. Vanessa was so comfortable with John and he was fantastic with her. John would guide her as to how he wanted Vanessa to pose and she just took his lead like a natural. John has his studio out if his house and it is amazing and the set was gorgeous. I give John Wills Photography 10+ ★★★★★. The work John does is beyond amazing, you can truly see he loves what he does. Vanessa loved doing the Enchanted Fairy Forest and would do it every day if she could. John is awesome with kids, he talks to them and works with them to try and get that perfect picture.  ★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★ If you want that special one of a kind pictures gives John Wills a call, you won’t be disappointed ❤❤❤” – Jennifer Furtado

Custom Children’s Portraits


I am having so much fun creating these magical children and family portraits for our clients to hang on their walls. Just look at their expressions 🙂

These Winter Wonderland art pieces are very unique and are meant to hang big on your living room walls. There is so much detail and time that goes into these beautiful custom prints. And the really cool thing is it is done all in our studio. 

When I design these it brings back the child in me ( my wife says I am a child most of the time anyway). While I was making this print I was laughing the whole time as I know that Joe and Crys ( the mom and dad) would totally do this in real life. 🙂

This print will hang on their wall for many many years to come. 🙂

Are you interested in having me create something like this for you and/or your kids? Well you can check out a few more of these by clicking HERE.

Scarlett was an absolute superstar during her Cutest Kids Contest photo session. I met her and her family in the early evening at a local park that I like to use. We went for a lovely walk stopping and shooting where ever the light was beautiful…… and sometimes where Scarlett wanted to as well. 🙂

I have photographed this amazing kid a few times now and every time she brings her A Game. I absolutely love photographing these sessions as I feel it a big challenge trying to get stunning photographs in a short period of time for my clients to hang on their wall. 


Check out more information on our Cutest Kid Contest HERE.

“Eekkk I can’t wait to get all these!!! John again has blown me away with how wonderful he was with Scarlett and his ability to see just a piece of grass or a fence and just make them into the most beautiful setting!

He is so good at ensuring your loved one is the focal point not only help with arranging great weather to colour choice but thinking way beyond the photo to even how you want to cherish the memory….. placement in your home, headshot vs full body, pattern vs solids the advice has always started us to what I feel is the most incredible photos that we cherish in our home daily…..and yes share with you all here as well.

I highly recommend John Wills to capture your precious family.” – Michelle Houghton-McCarthy
