24.

Artist.

Traveler.

Child of God.

California native.

 

I'm in love with rainy Sunday mornings, surprise packages, and people who are kind when they don't have to be, because I want to be like them. I adore the way light hits empty walls in the late evening, and I love listening to soft, mellow music and the sound of waves crashing on the sand at midnight. I laugh at silly things, and cry at insignificant things. Someday I want to fall deeply in love and see the world and experience new things. I want to know God the way I am meant to. I want so much.

 

I hurt more than I should, but I am stronger than I realize.

I will learn to make myself happy.

Hi Whitney, I was just writing this to tell you how amazing I think you are. Everything you post is stunning, inspiring, beautiful and honestly leaves me speechless. You not only take amazing pictures but you seem like an amazingly beautiful person inside and out. When you take photos you really capture something else other then the picture. You take such magnificent photos and I hope that one day I can only be somewhere near as good as you. Thankyou for inspiring me, Whitney. Please don't EVER stop taking photos. Oh and you have an awesome name :) :)

Whitney, I've followed you on Flickr for quite a while now. I've watched you grow as a person through your photographs and have been luckily enough to exchange words with you through flickr mail. You truly are such a lovely person. I've seen you on bad days and I've seen you on good. Either way, incredible emotions are portrayed through your work and I think that's the most important quality in a photograph, the meaning behind it and its creativity. Every day, I'll click on your upload, not only to view it larger, but to read your words. Throughout this 365 project you have grown and will continually grow afterwards. I love your work and I'd like to thank you for answering my questions I've asked you in the past. I can't wait to see what's next!

This wonderful girl taks the sun,moon,and stars with her in every photo she takes,every description she writes,and every person she inspires. Seeing her stream and going through her photos is like being a kid in a candy story. Everything is so intricate and her photography style,technique,and vibrancy are executed perfectly for her. She does this for her own sake and that's only one of the many lovely things about her that's seen through her shots. You'll never see anything like the photos she takes. Her originality and creativity are through the roof and move hearts and minds. She pulls through and does photography and lives life in a way no one but her could every imagine. I know she'll go far in her travels. She is strong and truly an inspiration.

So talented, sweet, and so beautiful! :) She literally improves with each picture she takes and i can't wait for her next pictures! They are such an inspiration to me and to so many people. Keep up your amazing work, Whitney :) EDIT: I need to edit this. While this is all true, now that I know you better, there's so much more to it than I had written before. Whitney inspires in a different way than others on flickr. Yes, her photos are beautiful and incredible, but there is just SO much passion behind them. I can feel every emotion you put into a photo and that truly is special. Whitney also is most likely one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet on flickr. :) She is so obviously grateful for the people that love her work, and she is just so incredibly kind :D I'm so glad i met you whitney because you are an amazing person. You are so gifted and don't forget it. xo

I promise you. This girl has an amazing amount of spirit, creativity, faith, and kindness. It's unlimited. She has the most gorgeous, beautiful pictures that make me smile every time i see them. I love looking at new pictures from Whitney. I probably have more favorites from her than anyone else i think hahaha. She's just that amazing! She's beautiful inside and out and is a GREAT friend. To be honest i really wish she was my big sister :) I'd love that. I've known her for about a year on here, and i feel like i know her so well, from her 365 and everything. She's one of the kindest people i know, and she would never hurt a fly. This girl is amazing, and everyone needs to add her as a contact. I think actually, that the whole flickrverse already HAS added her! Hahaha :D She's really going places in life--i hope to see her pictures in an art display sometime in my life. That would really make my day :) I know she'll get there too; she IS that good! Whitney, never give up on yourself or your photography. Stay strong in your faith like you already are, and always be yourself. You're beautiful just the way you are, and we love you for it :) You're such an inspiration to me--i hope you know that! I love you girl :) ♥

You see a transformation of a caterpillar who turned into a glorious butterfly. Whitney has grown tremendously in this journey of self discovery and found herself. She is able to express deep, raw emotions without saying a word. What makes Whitney's photos so special is that people can relate to them. Not many artists can make that personal connection the way Whitney can. Her love of God, life, family and friends is a beautiful thing which can also be felt through her work. I always enjoy viewing her work and look forward to seeing her continue her journey.
