about us

We are Pip & Willow!


This organically developed duo consists of Rachel Stehm and Robin Norton.


Hi, I'm Rachel!  I have lived near the shore my whole life and just settled into a family home with my husband, Rob and our one year old son, Arlo.  Over six years ago I had a spontaneous inspiration to try out newborn photography.  I just-so-happened to have a friend that was due around that time and I asked if I could photograph her new (and last) baby; once I did, I became totally enamored with newborn photography.  Since then I have developed Pip and Willow Photography alongside my friend and fellow photographer, Robin.  As a self-taught photographer, I am always seeking to enhance my skills by taking photos as often as possible and investing in workshops from other professional photographers to learn the safest ways to handle newborns in "the studio" (which for us is in the comfort of your home!).  I have been forever changed through the birth of my son and by seeing him grow up through his first year, and I love being able to capture the preciousness of new life as a moment parents may treasure forever.


Hello, I’m Robin! I was born and raised in Monmouth County New Jersey and lived there until I bought a house in Ocean County with my husband Rob in 2020(yes that’s right, Rob & Robin). Since age 8 when I saved up for and purchased my first digital camera, I’ve always loved capturing the beauty seen in our world. From learning under many different professional photographers over the past several years I have gained photo experience with weddings, portraits of children and families, and other personal portrait ventures which I have pursued to enhance my photography skills. What I’ve learned gives me the most joy is portrait photography - that includes the most precious of them all, newborns. I am excited to be part of this newborn photography team alongside photographer and good friend, Rachel. Capturing God’s gift of life, especially at such an early stage is something very special and beautiful to me, and I’m delighted to have the chance to photograph those memories.
