"The rose colored life, in a new light.

Having an affirming aspect on life leads way to a beautiful existence. Seeing through a positive presence strays from the gloomy path of the world around us.

Flower your life.

Flower your words. Flower your thoughts. Flower your relationships. Flower your spirit. Flower your talents. Flower your past. Flower yourself with grace.

Committing to walking with the idea that you are lovely leaves room to allure others. Unveiling your beauty through a gift of presence offers beauty in more than one way. Seeing through rose colored glasses allows individuals to seek an unguarded, appealing, and tranquil essence."

Heirloom: Do you have any morning rituals or things you do to get ready for a long day of editing or shooting? 

Whitney: I guess it is no mystery that us photographers live and breath coffee. Before gearing up for a long day of shooting or editing, I am first in line for a vanilla latte. Something about the sweet smell along with some Van Morrison tunes gets me right into the groove.

Heirloom: What’s one thing/event/person/place you’ve always wanted to shoot but have yet to do it? 

Whitney: The salt flats in Death Valley, CA alongside Tim Walker would be an absolute dream. If you haven't already done so, check out his work! He has unbelievable styling talent. 

Heirloom: What intrigues you most about photography?

Whitney: What a great question. I would have to say a photograph's ability to live beyond its time, subjects, and story. Each click of a camera has the possibility of becoming an heirloom to a family. I also believe photography is another type of language, a form of expression that can be taken differently, and beautifully, to each person's eye. 

Heirloom: Where did you draw your inspiration for the Rose Colored shoot? 

Whitney: Rose Colored was inspired by looking at life through a new light. Seeing moments through a positive, and flowery, perspective can lead individuals to a more pleasant existence. Living life behind the shades of rose-colored glasses does not have to be considered oblivious, but instead beauty-centered, looking for the best in every situation.
