Get To Know Us


Jacob & Christin

This is Jacob & Christin Willis, owners of We Heart Photography.

She is the artist behind the images and he is the brains behind the business (which is funny because when they started dating, he was a wedding photographer and she was getting a business degree at PLNU). 

They love doing life together with their 2 sweet daughters and very naughty puppy.

Christin is passionate about creating images that go beyond your typical senior portraits. These aren’t your elbow-on-a-podium-cheesy-grin senior portraits. They’re fresh and modern and YOU. She works with you at every step to make sure that you LOVE your make-up, hair, and final images. She genuinely believes that our studio offers the best senior portrait experience in the world and we hope that you will agree after you experience a photoshoot with We Heart Photography.

Jacob, Christin’s husband, organizes the photoshoots, taking care of scheduling and making sure that all of the little details are covered. He handles all print orders and final products to make sure each order is delivered quickly and to absolute perfection. He’s also basically the nicest bearded guy you’ll ever meet. (Beard not pictured.)

The Shoot

Our Senior Portrait Sessions are unlike any other senior picture experience. You will have your makeup professionally done and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime photoshoot experience at our studio in Carlsbad. You can bring as many outfits as you’d like and you will be photographed in 5 of them. Our focus is on creating unique, gorgeous, fashion-style portraits. We love to end the session either at the beach or in our courtyard for some stunning outdoor shots.

The Viewing

Within 1 week of your photoshoot, we will have you back into the studio to see your images and you will have over 150 images to choose from. Our average client ends up with a collection of 25 stunning portraits.

At this viewing session you will get to choose your package, select your favorite photos, and see all of the products we offer. The photoshoot is so much fun but seeing your beautiful senior portraits is what it's all about.

The Investment

Our senior portrait sitting fee is $200 (add $100 to end your session on the beach). Product packages start at $500.

The Studio

6852 Embarcadero Lane

Our studio is located in Carlsbad, California off of the 5 at Poinsettia, in the 3-story lofts right by (actually ON) the coaster station. It is the perfect place for us to photograph indoor,

natural-light portraits

We have a shooting space with a selection of beautiful backdrops and a meeting space where our clients hang out and comfortably choose their favorite portraits. We work in the studio throughout the week editing and answering emails. It’s a space that inspires us and allows our clients to have a quiet, private photoshoot experience.
