Hi, I’m Whitney!

Thanks for taking some time to look at my website! A little bit about me: I studied photography in college and turned that degree into...a job in marketing. I spent many years working in corporate marketing before a friend asked me to take pictures of her newborn son. After doing that first session, I fell in love and started this business! I finally took the leap in 2017 and quit my marketing job to do photography full time.


When I’m not taking and editing photos, I like to spend my time traveling, remembering and reliving past trips, and planning upcoming adventures. I enjoy eating burritos and baked goods, watching TV and trying new breweries. I tend to go streaks where I obsess over things like furniture decorated with chalk paint or how I would like to re-do my kitchen. And I love living in Roslindale.


My husband and I moved to Roslindale in 2018 and we love the sense of community that we get while still being part of the city. I love that I can walk almost everywhere and can support so many unique local businesses.


In February, I had my own newborn baby and I'm so lucky that he lets me take photos of him in my studio every week.


Thanks for taking the time to visit my website, I’d love to work with you!


kind words

“We have used Whitney now several times; Maternity, newborn, and a family photo shoot again! We have LOVED every single time we have worked with her. The photos ALWAYS come back amazing and she is such an easygoing and friendly photographer. She makes everything super quick, easy and fun! She somehow always manages to get photos even when I don't think it's possible!”
