Hello! My name is Whitney I am a photographer, yogi and counsellor living in Toronto. I have a background in developmental counselling and feminist studies and I love to see the inner strength and beauty of others come out in my photography work. I’m a wanderlust spirit and certain my heart belongs to the ocean. I’ve spent many months traveling our world which has deepened my passion and love for photography.
I have a passion for capturing real life, crazy love stories! My hope and intention is for you to look back on your photos and remember exactly how you felt in that moment. It is my desire to help you preserve the beautiful moments in life.
When I pick up my camera, I aspire to capture images in others that create a sense of warmth and intimacy. Images that are a window to the love felt on that day, drawing the viewer to a place where their heart can’t help but to feel a connection. I gain my energy through the people I meet as my heart is most full when I am surrounded by others. Having the opportunity to tell people’s stories through still images gives me great joy. I would be honored to help capture and share your story.
When I am not capturing and telling stories with my lens, I’m either teaching or practicing yoga, discovering new restaurants around Toronto, planning my next trip, online shopping (guilty as charged), trying my hand at DIY apartment decorating, cuddling my family and friends pets and/or children, and eating pizza in bed, while binge watching TV shows.
From practicing yoga, I’ve discovered that yoga is what keeps my body strong, my mind clear and my heart open. Yoga has taught me to be present, to allow each moment to be as it is, and to accept myself as I am. It reminds me to embrace all of the emotions of life, to allow them to move through me, and to be grateful for the amazing fact that I’m alive. All the other good stuff has taught me that balance is the key of life!
Currently booking for 2018/19. I’d love to talk with you over a cup of tea or glass of wine about your wedding and lifestyle photography needs. I can’t wait to tell your love story. xo
