We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.

It is truly remarkable when you find someone to work with that quickly becomes a great friend. Whitney and Shea have worked together from the start of Whitney Collins Photography. From doing hair and makeup in Whitney’s kitchen, to now having a beautiful downtown location to serve clients, this journey has certainly been a team effort.

Perhaps the most special aspect of this team approach is the care they are able to show each client. From start to finish, Whitney and Shea work seamlessly together to not only create beautiful portraits, but a beautiful experience that clients rave about. There is just something about on-set assistance and touch-ups, along with expert posing direction and guidance that makes you feel like a model!

Whitney and Shea work diligently to ensure that the studio is warm and inviting, a place where you can drop your worries at the door, and leave feeling empowered and beautiful. Many women are a bit nervous when they first sit in Shea’s chair, but don’t worry, she is experienced with all ages, skin tones, and hair types. From natural looks, to full glam, she can do it all! She has worked in the industry for seven years. For the last two years, hair and makeup artistry has been her full-time job.

Once you step in front of the camera, Whitney will guide you through posing so that you look and feel amazing! Whitney is a member of Sue Bryce Education, and attends workshops and conventions to ensure that she is always growing and bringing the most up-to-date techniques to the studio. She is currently working toward her accreditation under The Portrait Masters program. Whitney’s style is simple, yet sophisticated, and she loves creating timeless artwork for her clients.

They look forward to helping you create the portrait experience of your dreams!
