about me


My husband is in the process of retiring from the Navy! We will be moving to Boise in December of 2022. I plan to start booking Boise in spring of '23. I will be back to Seattle summer of '23. In the meantime, check out my education and products page for digital tools! 

After having kids I found my lifelong sought after career of horse trainer and riding instructor was no longer the best thing for our family. I picked up my camera when my son was born and was so encouraged to find that I could learn something new and really enjoy it. I quickly got bored of taking photos of only my kid and found a real love of photographing families. 

My husband is moving in on 20 years with the military and likely retiring out soon, so our family is looking at a big change in the next year! We're not quite sure where we're going to land yet (taking suggestions for awesome communities in the greater Northwest region) but regardless I will continue to take Seattle area family sessions for years to come.

My Great Grandpa Ike homesteaded in the hills about Sequim (we still have the cabin and land in the family 100 years later) so the Puget Sound will always be home. 

i do it for them. and for me.

my work


We love our pictures from Whitney! Our 2 year old was definitely in the “no” stage, and I was so worried that we wouldn’t get very decent pictures. He’s a wiggler, explorer, and does not stay still for very long! Whitney worked her magic and was able to skillfully deliver us beautiful pictures. I like how she just let us explore and walk around without posing us too much. The whole family felt very comfortable with her. Also, she delivered the finished pictures in a very timely manner. We can’t wait for our next session! Thank you Whitney for these memories that we’ll treasure forever. ❤️


We have been thrilled with each of the 6 photo shoots we have had with Whitney. The photographs always turn out to be the most beautiful shots of our family of 5. We have a difficult time choosing which ones to print and frame in our home as there are so many great choices. Our children (7 and under) look forward to photos with Whitney because she is so great at making them feel happy and encourages quality family play time during shoots. Would recommend without hesitation!

Whitney was amazing. I came to her as a new client for Christmas pictures. I told her preemptively about my special needs daughter and she set aside extra time for us and made sure she could accommodate her sensory issues. She worked with her beautifully when she had a meltdown over Santa and was patient and kind and reassuring to me the entire time. What started out incredibly stressful ended with both kids smiling and happy and we left the shoot with beautiful pictures that we will treasure a lifetime. I can not thank her enough for her incredible kindness and undeniable talent.


"Any time you leave family photos smiling and talking about how much fun you all had is a win in my book! Whitney is an absolute treasure of a photographer and the only hard part is choosing your favorite one❤️"

What does a session with whitney look like?


Do I have to shoot at Sunset? 
Yes! Ha, well most of the time.  You're probably picking me because you like the look of my photos and time of day is a BIG part of that. 

My kid has an early bedtime, how do I deal?

This is a super common question! I will have some prep for you to help. Most of the time having a late nap and snacks and being somewhere fun and new will be all it takes. 

Can I bring Grandma?
For morale support and hand outer of snacks, sure! To add people to be photographed outside of your immediate family will be an additional fee. 

Do you travel?
Often! You can find my current travel dates by clicking below.

Do you shoot on weekends?
Generally, no. As my kiddos get older weekends are reserved for family time. Plus the benefit of less crowds! 


Travel dates!
