Whitney Brown, Owner + Photographer
As a portrait artist, I’m really in the business of storytelling, and it’s what I do best. I’ve captured the authentic stories of hundreds of souls during my time as a visual artist; it’s an honor and privilege that I’ll never take for granted. There’s nothing more valuable to me than capturing authentic legacies, and I’m proud to offer a portrait experience that does exactly that.
“The meaning of life is to find your gift.
The purpose of life is to give it away.” -Picasso

Courtney Yurt, Lead HMUA + Photography Assistant
Certified International Elite Makeup Professional
Courtney’s work is simplistic and sophisticated. She has worked with clients of all age ranges and backgrounds on projects ranging from portraits to conceptual editorial. She’s also our behind the scenes videographer, so don’t be surprised to find her shooting as well.
A note from Courtney:
I want you to leave my chair understanding who you are, what you love about yourself, and what makes you feel the most beautiful. We are all beautiful in our own unique way, and my goal is to help you capture what makes you, YOU.
“For me, beauty is synonymous with uniqueness; perfection is mundane, boring, and emotionless. It’s by celebrating the differences in others that we can begin to accept our own individuality. – Kevyn Aucoin.”
Jess Flora, Studio Assistant
Jess is one of the first faces you’ll see when you show up for your WDP photoshoot. As our set assistant, Jess helps us to create unique and perfectly placed sets to match your vision.
A note from Jess:
Having worked with Whitney as a client first, I’ve experienced a WDP photoshoot firsthand, and truly understand what an impactful experience it is; especially on a journey of self-discovery. It’s so rewarding to now be a part of the team that delivers that unforgettable experience to others.
