Whitney Elise Beauty Turns One!


“Individually we are one drop. Together we are an ocean.” – Ryunosuke Satoro


I’ve always related to the quote that states supporting another woman’s success doesn’t dampen my own.  I’m a firm believer in not only community over competition, but also connection over competition.  All too often in life women are forced to compete with one another so when we are able to connect and celebrate the success of each other it’s truly a magical thing.

I was elated when Whitney, my preferred Charlotte MUA, reached out to me regarding her one year anniversary photoshoot.  She celebrated this milestone back on March 2 and she had her vision all laid out of how she wanted to commemorate such a special occasion.  Even though we were in the throws of winter it was an unusually warm day and we took to the rooftop to capture the beautiful Charlotte skyline as the backdrop to her images.

Whitney did not come to play donning a form-fitting white body-con dress and pink faux fur.  Completely ON brand if you know Whitney or have ever visited her super adorable studio located in the Metropolitan area of uptown Charlotte.  A slight mishap took place as we began her session when the N to her ONE balloons decided to deflate on us at the last minute, but we improvised and STILL made it work.  Team work makes the dream work, right ya’ll?

I’m so excited for what’s in store for the years to come for Whitney.  She’s someone that’s gone from trusted work colleague, to my own personal MUA and waxer/esthetician to friend.  We share business advice and laughs.  And she’s someone that I trust to give all of my clients a phenomenal experience from start to finish.  Make sure sure to hop on over to her website now to see everything she offers.  I promise once you book her you won’t be disappointed!
