Meet Whitney



My name is Whitney (but you probably already figured that out). I am a professional photographer and I am so thankful that I get to do what I love everyday. I am 30 and live and work in the greater Seattle area. I specialize in portrait photography; families, maternity, all those adorable little ones from birth to graduation, weddings, corporate headshots and events.

Photography has been a passion of mine since high school. I wasn’t bored one day, picked up a camera and wallah I was a professional photographer… I consciously decided I wanted to be a  photographer and that I wanted to be the best one out there. So I researched all of the photography schools on the west coast and picked the best one that I could find. Brooks Institute of Photography based out of Santa Barbara, CA. I graduated after three long years with a Bachelor of Arts degree, with a double concentration in Advertising and Commercial photography. After that I moved to Los Angeles where I was mentored by and worked for some of the most amazing celebrity photographers in the world. I also worked for Disney and Kidsline professionally retouching their nursery collections for almost a year. From there, I decided that it was time to come back to the beautiful pacific north-west and start my own business! I knew without a shadow of a doubt that portraits were my passion already, so that was the direction I took my business.

I love to be creative and strive to make every photoshoot even better than the next. I always provide an atmosphere best suited to bring out the best of YOU in your photos. My goal is to capture the true smiles that aren’t rehearsed, the cuddles, the kisses and the natural joyful way you and your family or spouse interact. My number one goal with every session is always to show you at your best and provide you with images that you will love and cherish for years over.
