Meet the photographer
Whitney Boyd here. Wife to Justin and mommy to Caedmon, Reveille and Rayna (unique baby names are my jam). I'm a Christian, a reader, and a lover of ice coffee and ice cream (Noticing a theme?? It's hot here in Tampa Bay!). I have been a natural light photographer for 15 years and my talents are best shown through babies, families, seniors and an abundance of sweet sunlight! I have favorite spots to shoot in Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs, Trinity, Safety Harbor and Dunedin - but I'm always up for exploring new areas too!
When my son was born, he looked 100% like his daddy. If I hadn't just witnessed him come out of me, I may not have been convinced he was mine! Then my baby pictures came to the rescue. I was relieved to find that even though he had Justin's lips, he had my smile. Through faded family photos, I saw my eyes and traces of Uncle Statler and Cousin Noah.
In the length of time it took to type this sentence, Caedmon has grown like a weed. He's thinned out so much, it's easy to forget he started as a chunky rolly polly. If I didn't have pictures to look back on, I would forget so many details that are so special to me. Like his chubby little hands having dimples where knuckles should have been. And his vampire stage where his incisors came in before his front teeth.
I'm so thankful to have these memories frozen in time. I can look at them any time I want. When he enters a new stage and starts to resemble a big boy instead of my baby, I will look at them. When he is throwing a tantrum and testing my sanity, I will look at the walls and smile at his sweetness. He will have these memories to use in the senior page of his yearbook, a wedding slideshow, and an album for his children.
I want this for you as well. Low resolution cell phone shots or pictures on a thumbdrive somewhere are not enough. Instead, how about beautiful, professional pictures that you will cherish the rest of your life? Pictures that YOU are in. And pictures on your walls, so that your heart swells every time you walk by them.
Click here if you're ready to connect or reach out with questions. So glad to meet you and hopefully serve you soon. -Whitney Boyd
P.S. When my husband read this, he teared up and said "I forgot about his vampire stage!" ...Dude, It was like 4 months ago! See what I mean?! Our sleep deprived brains cannot be trusted. Reason #17 to hire me for pictures.
JUST FOR FUN
What is your dream day?
“My dream day (aka what I ask for my birthday every year) is alone time at a coffee shop, a massage, lunch somewhere outside, a nap, and a book in the hammock. And then I hop on a plane and head to Hawaii....(jk jk)”
Meet the support staff
His name means "Wise Warrier, supplanter." (The history of the name is a monk who learned music and lyrics through a dream). This little boy is a non-stop ball of fun. He is super extroverted, just like his daddy. He does not stop moving, talking, or laughing - even in his sleep! He loves his momma and wants to be a pilot.
Her name means "Wake up! The Lord has Responded." She is a creative thinker, sings all day long, and loves to be in her own world. Sometimes we call her our little mad scientist - with her glasses and messy hair, deeply engaged in what she's doing. She's gonna do big things.
Her names means "Song of the Lord, from the Mountain of the Wealthy One". She is 10 months now, and full of energy! She might be a genius. She just seems to be doing everything early - from mobility, peekaboo, "talking", it feels like there's a lot going on in that cute little head. Her beauty and brains intimidate me!
Justin is a super Dad. When things are tense during the witching hour before dinner, Justin comes home and changes the mood. With humor, with music, with his chronically good attitude and optimism. His dad jokes are top notch. Another thing I love about him is that he's always up for hearing the mundane details of my day. He's also an amazing business man, leader, musician, and he would like to think comedian. ;)
What clients say about me
“Whitney was extremely helpful with all aspects of scheduling and getting my family ready for great photos. The photo shoot was quick and painless. I didn't feel like we had to be perfect or models. She worked with us just as we were and the photos are my favorite photos that we've ever had!! High quality, great lighting and beautiful!”
