All sessions (aside from heirloom portrait sessions) come with ALL images from our session together because I cannot imagine not giving you all of your family's special memories. 

"She is kind, easy going, and is so passionate about what she does. She is very talented and takes great pride in her photography. It really shows in her work too. Whitney took her time and really worked with me to get the perfect pieces for my home. These heirloom portraits are one of a kind and incredibly special. I am SO thankful to have found her and to have gotten to capture these one of a kind special memories of my sweet babies. You cannot go wrong with booking an Heirloom session with her. I promise, you will regret NOTHING!"

“Whitney has been a DREAM to work with. Truly.”

- lauren w.

"Whitney showed up, on time, super friendly and somehow made our otherwise rowdy 3 year old son eat out of the palm of her hand. She seriously got him to do whatever she asked. She. Was. Amazing. She captured a really special time for us - without even knowing us. She was absolutely delightful. By the time she left, I honestly felt like we had become best friends. I will seriously cherish these moments forever. I’m so grateful."

“I will cherish these moments forever.”

- elizabeth b.

"She was so kind, professional, and made the entire experience so easy, enjoyable, and FUN! I often find myself feeling super awkward during photos, but she is a natural at making you feel comfortable. From the first phone call I knew she would be great to work with. We highly recommend Whitney and we absolutely love our photos! We will cherish them for a lifetime."

“We absolutely loved working with Whitney!”

- andrea w.

Client Praise

your images will be light-filled, timeless, and full of emotion.

After our session together, I am here to guide you with image and artwork selection because your family's images deserve to be on display throughout your home, whether that's in the form of wall art or a fine art album you can snuggle up with your children and enjoy.

What to Expect

I am here to serve you and make your session an enjoyable experience where you are able to relax and enjoy special memories with those you love most. Starting from our first conversation, I will ask a few questions to be sure that we schedule the session that is perfect for your family, from the time of day to the location and the length of the session. I will guide you through outfit choices and talk you through every step of the process.

Let's start planning!  ⟶

Do you like what you see and want to get more information so we can plan your family's session?

I would love to have the opportunity to work together! Reach out, and I will get back with you with more information within 24 hours. Please allow 48 hours for a response if you e-mail over the weekend. Not wanting to miss a minute with my own littles, weekends are reserved for family.


Once you decide you're ready to book with me, we will compare our calendars and pick a date that works for both of us. I take a limited number of sessions per month, so reach out early to ensure availability. I will guide you through choosing the best time of day and location for your family.

My goal is to make your experience fun and stress-free.


After booking, I will send over my wardrobe style guide so that you are able to start picking out your family's outfits for our session together. During the time between booking and our session together, you are welcome to play dress up and send your favorite options to me. During this time, be sure to time your family's haircuts, and treat yourself to an appointment at your favorite nail salon if you so choose. Your hands will show in your images (especially newborn sessions), so keep all of the little details in mind as you're preparing for our time together.

Session Preparation

Show up for your session ready to enjoy being in the presence of your loved ones.

You've dreamt of and spent so much time preparing for our session together, so now it's time to capture the memories you've envisioned filling your home.

Session Day!

Two to three weeks after your session, you will receive an online password-protected gallery of your images. This is where you will choose your favorites, and we will discuss how you'd like to enjoy them.

You can purchase prints and digital files through your gallery, and I will help you with album design and/or framed artwork for your home.

Product Selection

I am here to guide you with image and artwork selection, because your family's images deserve to be on display throughout your home, whether that's in the form of wall art or a fine art album you can snuggle up with your children and enjoy!


I offer both digital and printed artwork, as well as custom framed products.
