I’m Whitney! I am an Angeleno by birth, a Washingtonian by choice, and a Hoya (C'07) by sheer luck and determination. I also happen to be a photographer and event planner/stylist who dabbles in the world of civic engagement/voter rights/voter registration (read: dabbles equals every day from 10 to an unknown time). 

I love being a part of people’s lives and creating something that will stay with them forever, whether that is a photograph, an event, or a really fun (or emotive) blog post. I love babies and weddings and families and maternity sessions. Event planning and creative design thrill me and life is full of flourishing colors and designs, so why not do it all (my sleep cycle does not always agree with this statement).

I can't wait to meet you and I apologize in advance that very quickly you will learn that I love of Fuji instant cameras, penguins, picture books, glitter, making people dance out their nerves/wiggles, and (unknown why) bad TV dramas.
