a little about me

I'm Whitney and I'm so glad that you are here!  I'm a native to this area! Born and Raised - #saltyveins haha. I have a huge love for the Gulf of Mexico and all the creatures in it. Have you ever seen a baby sea turtle or a pod of dolphins?? The cuteness will kill you. 

If I'm not on the beach shooting your family, then I'm hanging out with my own playing on the shore.  I'm a Jesus lover, quilt hoarder, and caffeine addict! 

I LIVE for our sunsets and adore the light at sunrise!  That golden light just makes me swoon. Every night it is completely different and I continue to be amazed by each and every one.  I love documenting authentic moments.  Those in-between moments- the moment before your son jumps in your arms, that sweet dance with your spouse, or the way your daughter screams when the water tickles her toes! I love documenting your family loving on each other and playing in the water and I want to capture you in this moment. 

Let's tell your story. 


I have a siamese cat named Skippy Jon Jones.


I've known my husband since I was eleven.


My favorite color is turquoise.


I probably could have my own private beach with the amount of sand I have in my car.


I love crossword puzzles.


I am a Disney fanatic!


I'm simple. I shoot with one lens.


I have a green thumb.


Summer is my very favorite.


I love flamingos. Even the plastic ones.
