This gorgeous series of 9 shots is a toast to the seasons, as we bid adieu to the warmth of summer and welcome the crisp air (& waters) of fall.Β 

I haven’t gone outside of the studio to shoot creatively, just for me, in a long time. We laughed ourselves sick, turned blue from the cold, and ended up covered in mud… COMPLETELY worth it.

I live for photoshoots like this –Β #raw,Β #emotive,Β #exposedΒ – it’s what keeps me coming back to photography again and again.Β This is also a testament to the fact that makeup (and all the extra) is NOT required to create ART! Come as you are, heart and soul… and let’s make magic.

I hope you connect with and enjoy these as much as we did. πŸ–€Β  Xo -Whitney

Turning 50 is a Privilege | 50 Over 50 | Columbus Photography Studio

When this 50 Over 50 & branding client walked into the studio we knew instantly it was going to be a special shoot. This woman is a fierce warrior on a mission! Her energy is unmatched, and I truly believe there isn’t a single thing on this planet that could stop her from accomplishing her goals. An author, educator, speaker, entrepreneur, woman of God, business & life coach, and all around inspirational leader, she has made it her life’s work to help others grow. It only made sense that she join our 50 Over 50 project of thriving, strong, and wise souls.

This is what she had to say:
“Turning 50 is a privilege some do not get to experience.

I have often reflected on the journey that has brought me thus far: the highs, lows, and everything in between. Without them, I would not be the woman I am today. I have fought extremely hard to be her. The fearless warrior in me was there all along, and I love her immensely. She carried the torch and lit the path in the darkest of nights for me.Β 

I truly believe my best days are not behind me but still ahead.
I have many miles yet to travel and intend on living every second, minute, and hour to the fullest.

Don’t run from aging, embrace it by taking excellent care of yourself and being the best version of who God has created you to be.

Being part of the Gen X generation is the absolute BEST. We are cut from a different cloth. We are not average. We are not common. We are not quitters. We are trailblazers. We are Mavericks. So to my Gen X’ers, I’ll say one word, β€˜AVANTI’ (forward).”

Embracing Your Age is Embracing Your Strength | 50 Over 50 | Columbus, OH Photographer

This beauty is one of our latest 50 Over 50 clients, and we were so thrilled when she agreed to be a part of this.

Raynea has been through a lot of storms over the past few years, and what a FIGHTER she is. Her story is one of perseverance and strength through the storm.

This is what she had to say:

I believe that when we have walked through trauma and we have fought so hard for ourselves that we absolutely should document who we came out as on the other side of the storm.  That is exactly why I chose to have portraits done by Whitney.  I want nothing more in life than for my children to look at their mom and see a women that fought through it all; a strong, determined, resilient warrior.  I also want women to know that they are worth fighting for.  I absolutely love being in my 50’s.  I’m stronger, healthier and fiercer than ever before.  I encourage you to embrace your age.  Embrace your strength.  You are a powerhouse.

Back to School Means Back to Yourself Mamas | Dayton Photography Studio

The time has come across the Midwest… it’s the bittersweet time of the year when the kids head back to school. Sure, you cried seeing the bus pull away, SURE you’ll miss that chubby, crumb covered face – for the whole 7 minutes it takes to realize you’re about to have 5 minutes to YOURSELF.

WE, Moms… WE NEED TIME! We need time to feel like US again, to feel beautiful, to be taken care of without planning, without worry. We need to take the time to be authentically us again. The title of MAMA is one to be proud of, it’s an incredible honor and a great responsibility… but it is never going to be ALL of who YOU are.

Motherhood Shoot

So many of our clients are moms. I have so much respect for any of my clients with children, family, careers who have shown up mentally prepared, having read the prep guide, and on time; sister, HOW did you do it all?!
I also have so much respect for my clients who show up a little frantic, unsure, and wondering how in the hell they actually got themselves out the door to do this in the first place!

Either way, we’re going to make this the BEST photoshoot experience you’ve ever had. That’s what we do – we take you out of the daily grind for just long enough to remember WHO. YOU. ARE.

That’s where the WDP Experience comes in…

Women’s Portraits

This beautiful client is no exception to this, a mother of two young boys, a photographer herself, and someone who was still trying to find herself in her new mom life. We’ve all been there. She walked in feeling unsure, and left feeling like she could take on the world.

Whitney and her team went above and beyond to help this Momma of two feel like a true model. I was beyond nervous for my session (given I wasn’t super comfortable in my new “mom” body) but Whitney, Courtney & Jess were so encouraging and truly made me feel confident & proud of my new body. Not only was the session fantastic, but sitting down with Whitney and choosing the photos is hands down one of the best experiences. There were tears shed, and she was so encouraging the whole time. I am so proud every time I see my images, and I know I made a lifelong friend at the end of it all. Thank you WDP & team!

Cheers to this sweet client. She is killing motherhood, kicking ass at building her business, and getting back to the basics of HER. X-

If you’re ready to get back to the basics with a photoshoot experience… let’s chat.

Voyage LA Magazine | Dayton | Los Angeles Photographer

When Voyage LA Magazine asked me to be a part of their Rising Star interviews, of course I immediately said yes, and was incredibly honored.

This is a two part article; the first published by Voyage Los Angeles, focusing on my story as an artist, and the second, dropping later this week by San Diego Voyager Magazine, will focus on my journey as a business owner.

The fact that these cities that have been such a huge part of my life and career still recognize and support my work means more than words can say.

Thank you for your never-ending support, both Voyage LA and SD Voyager. Both of these cities made me into the artist and business owner I am today… I am forever grateful for that.

Why I’m Thankful for The Road I’ve Traveled | 50 Over 50 | Dayton, OH Photographer

Amy and her daughter came to the studio with open hearts, fully trusting our process in the hopes to have a mother-daughter moment they would never forget. We delivered!

She also agreed to be a part of our 50 Over 50 campaign and I’m honored that she did. Everything she does for herself, she does to show her daughter how to love HERself in the same way. As mother of a little girl, I found this so inspiring.

The love of a mother is endless and so profound; and as a mother, it can be easier to show our daughters love than it is to show ourselves. Don’t forget to love YOU as well today, friends. You are every bit as deserving. – Xo

“This has been an amazing and unforgettable experience, being photographed by Whitney. All I’ve ever wanted out of life was for my daughter to look at me and be proud that I am her Mom. During this experience Whitney brought that out in the beautiful work she does with her portraits. I’ve heard that most women have anxiety or depression when turning 50 – I on the other hand decided to embrace It, learn to love me for me and be thankful for the road I’ve traveled. It was such an honor being a part of this experience.”
