Hi there, I'm Whitney!

As a life-long believer in "Do what you love, love what you do," I found myself at a crossroads in college when I no longer wanted to do what I had set out to do, which was a mix of Economics and Engineering. I decided to put practicality on hold and chase my dreams.

In 2006, I founded Whitney Elizabeth Photography in Charlotte, NC and spent the next few years photographing weddings every weekend, photographing families on weekdays and attending every photography conference I possibly could. Then one day I got married and moved to Santa Barbara, CA, where I spent four fantastic years photographing more wonderful families and babies and then eventually moved to Connecticut in 2012. Over the past decade, I have had the honor and privilege of photographing families, babies, and weddings all over the country and I'm so grateful for the amazing relationships that have been created over the years. 

In 2014, I founded BarkLab Creative Co., with my husband. We design streamlined and functional websites for individuals and small businesses. When I'm not photographing families or weddings or designing websites, I travel as much as possible, whether it's a weekend getaway to a new-to-me location in New England or a week-long trip abroad. I also love to spend time outside whenever I can, with my husband, Mike, and my labrador retriever, Boone.
