Trust. Love. Faith. Service. Loyalty
Hi loves! My name is Rhea Whitney (pronounced Rae)! I have a bright, outgoing personality, love life and all things beautiful! I have always seen photography as my gift to the world and have been so fortunate to pursue it professionally for the past 4 years. To me, beauty is all about small details coming together to create a big picture! Capturing the true essence and story of my clients is my passion.
Connecting with people through my photography business is one of the most rewarding parts of being a photographer! Creating images that my clients will love and cherish for years to come is such a wonderful feeling. And being able to be creative with each session, to really match the personalities of my clients is so FUN! Each session is customized to meet my clients needs and wants and I'm very passionate about my clients getting professional print artwork that can be cherished for generations to come. I’m so blessed to be able to work with such amazing people who trust me as their photographer and to build long lasting relationships with them! Interested in scheduling your session?

In October of 2010, my life changed for the better. I didn’t know at that time the effect a professional photography course would have on my life, but I’m forever grateful that my passion bloomed! I must admit though, I’ve always been a major picture lover! As a kid, and currently honestly, I was obsessed with taking pictures of my family and friends and being able cherish a lost moment through an image. I used to get so excited when it was time to drop the film roll off for developing, about to burst with anxiousness about seeing all the images I created! My speciality, (as a kid, remember) was creating collages and giving framed portraits. So, when I signed up for the 6 month course in October about professional photography, I knew I was going to learn a lot about my camera and benefit from the class, but never imagined the impact would be life changing. BUT - that’s what happened. I fell in love with the art and science of photography and because of my natural visual abilities, was able to learn how to manipulate my camera and make beautiful portraits.
Finding my passion and purpose in life with photography and being able to truly be myself in my business has brought so much joy and happiness to my life! Prior to becoming a full-time entrepreneur, I was an accountant and I found and was told multiple times that my personality didn't fit the mold of what an accountant should be. I was often time disliked by my coworkers and leadership in my accounting roles because I was too friendly and nice, but that's all I knew how to be. Being able to truly be myself as a photographer makes me happy internally! The fact that I can make someone else see the beauty that I see in them, is such a rewarding feeling.
I don't take my role as a photographer lightly. I study my craft profusely and have invested a lot of time and money into the business. My goal is to provide a great client experience, educate and prepare my clients on basic pointers to make their images amazing. Thank you for taking the time to read more about my story! I hope to get you in front of my lens and make some magic together!

FREQUENTLY ASKED >
What is the difference between a business session and a lifestyle session?
A business session is for those who want branding images for this business/brand and will be needing digital files primarily. Lifestyle sessions are for families, engagements, anniversary and sessions showcasing the love and the bond between those close. I like to think of these sessions as legacy portraits.

What time of day do you suggest we schedule our portrait session?
All of my portrait sessions are schedule for the early morning, starting at 8am or the evening, 2 hours before sunset, starting around 6pm (depending on the current season and sunset times). Those times yield the best natural light for portraits. And lighting is KEY! We will certainly talk more about this in our 30 minute phone planning consultation. :)
