Meet the Team

Heather Corbin, Owner & Lead Photographer

Philippians 4:13

Hey! I am SO glad you have landed here!

I am a life changed by Jesus, a fun loving momma of 3 crazy awesome kiddos, a dog mom to an ornery bloodhound, a snuggly pitbull and a happy, thankful wife. Our crew lives on a steep mountain side in Smithsburg, MD with a breathtaking view and countless amount of chickens & wildlife!

Prior to mom life, I studied digital art my senior year of high school while interning for a local studio photographer. I really enjoyed it but didn’t think I could make a living on those skills. Realistically thinking, and needing to pay the bills, I worked in the corporate world in Baltimore, MD for 6 years while attending business school. After my first child was born, I continued to work part time until I surrendered to the call and yearning of my heart to be a full time stay at home momma. After my third child, I had lost myself. Desperately needing to find “me” again, I threw myself back into creative expression through the lens.

What started as a hobby, and with the encouragement of family/friends, business mentors and Gods provision/strength, I was led to make this hobby a legit business in 2018. In 2020 I launch, Willow Blue LLC, which was a creative art studio. For 2 years my team and I put everything into bringing the “arts” to the Smithsburg town, unfortunately we were forced to close our studio at the end of 2022. Willow Blue still lives on though, as solely a photography company now! This has been a blessing in disguise and has allowed me to go work full time as a special needs para professional and go back to doing what I love most part time without the stress, which is photography and serving my loyal clients.

No matter what color hair I happen to have that day, you will always see me creating.

I love working with everyone who walks through the doors to create something special and unique. I’ve always enjoyed making beautiful things, and at Willow Blue I’m able to share that — I’m living my dream. Rachel holds an Associate of Arts Degree with a concentration in visual arts from Hagerstown Community College.
