What's it like to work with Whitney boyd?
Strategy session either via phone, coffee date, or in home consultation (up to you!). Being in front of the camera is no easy task! Instead of meeting the day of the shoot and trying to feel natural in front of the camera, we will already be fast friends.

The Style Guide
What should we wear?
Before your shoot, you will receive a 48 page Style Guide to answer this question and more! (Don’t panic, it’s mostly pictures). I can email it to you or discuss it in person over coffee.
Images that you are proud to display - as painlessly as possible! I never overbook so that I can prioritize my clients every step of the way. There are no high pressure, in person ordering appointments. No hidden session fees or mark ups later.
Upfront & Honest
I am one of the fastest photographers around - turn around time is only a few days for your online gallery! As excited as you are to see your pictures, I'm just as excited to work on them!
Digitals are included with each collection! The collections vary in price based on the number of digitals included. Many photographers only offer prints, but these are your pictures and they belong with you! Prints and canvases available as add ons.
The Phainting turns you into art! It's
a photo printed on canvas, then painted by my talented sister. Printing it first (rather than painting a copy) allows for a more lifelike portrait. The result is a stunning piece you won't find anywhere else!
One of a kind artwork
I don't leave you to navigate prints and products on your own. My galleries are equipped with room "mock ups" so that you can visualize the final product on your walls. You can even upload your own rooms!
Where are you based and do you travel?
I am born and raised in Tarpon Springs, FL (5th generation!) and we recently moved to Palm Harbor, FL (into my husband's childhood home!).
So we are in the area to stay =) I have some favorite spots to shoot all around Tampa Bay - in Safety Harbor, Downtown Dunedin, Palm Harbor, Tarpon, Trinity, and Clearwater. With three littles at home, I don't do a ton of traveling outside of my 1 hour radius. Please inquire though! Travel fee and lodging may apply.
How do we pay?
In the menu bar, click "contact" (or "ready to book" at the bottom of this page) to reach out to me. Once we chat about vision and confirm availability, I will send you a link to my pricing page where you can select your package and check out from there. Your deposit is non-refundable (unless there is an act of God and no way to reschedule) and it reserves the date. This deposit will go towards whatever collection you choose. The remainder of your package is not due until you view your images. Paypal, Venmo, Stripe, cash and check and spa giftcards ;) are all accepted.
Do you photograph weddings?
For the past 5 years I have either been pregnant or pumping. I dropped off the wedding scene because if felt difficult to be reliable and on my A-game. At this point, I do accept very intimate, daytime weddings (not full day events) and elopements.
How many outfit changes can I have?
As many as your heart desires! It depends on your goals and needs. For family photos, if a framed wall gallery is the goal, then you'll want only one outfit so that all the pictures go together. For headshots, you may want variety or to leak content slowly over time for social media. Then multiple outfits are best. We will discuss outfits in detail at your pre-session consult! If we are shooting at a location without nearby bathroom access, I can bring a pop up changing tent for privacy.
