Stuart Townsley – Photographer/Owner
Although I have been a photographer since 1998 at several other well-established wedding and portrait studios, Townsley Portraits was founded in 2006 in my living room. Since then it has grown into the full service studio that we are now.
I love creating “moments,” finding that perfect pose, helping families capture that fleeting shot that encapsulates the love they share and the joy they find in each other. I’ve spent my life doing this, and I’m lucky enough to have found clients that appreciate what I do and allow me to make this a successful career. I love what I do every day.
It is my goal to create artwork that takes your breath away. Loving your experience and finished pieces is what really matters to us. I believe a portrait is so much more than just a photo on your wall. It is a testament about what you feel is valuable and important: your family. I don’t want to just take pictures; I want to create memories. I take these memories and work with a highly-trained team to turn them into beautiful pieces of art — albums, canvases, etc.
Unlike some studios, our sessions are fast-paced and fun. We do a variety of different poses in various settings to ensure kids are entertained and engaged, so that we get the best shots possible.
Also unlike many photographers I will personally sit with you and help you choose the best images from your shoot and then help design albums and wall displays. I take the time to meet with each and every client, because we feel that is the only way to provide the best customer service we can.
I look forward to meeting you and being part of your family’s history.
