Hi, y'all!

I’m Whitney - the one doing all the things at Starry Day Designs.


Fun facts about me:

  • Named after a Beatle (Ringo - my middle name is Starr).  My mom had a thing for drummers. :)

  • Love to rollerblade and enjoy a good cocktail, though usually not at the same time.

  • Hoarder of pens, markers, and beautiful paper and am a bit obsessed with hand-lettering.

  • The beach is my favorite.  So are sunsets.

  • Give me all the tacos, or anything with thai-style peanut sauce, or both!

  • Control freak learning to turn it down (a little).  Well... I’m working on it.

  • Wife,  momma of two, taught high school English for almost a decade, and was a sports journalist before that.


I am incredibly passionate about empowering women.  I totally understand how we can feel invisible or like we are not enough.  Portraiture is an amazing way to get women to feel as strong and amazing as they already are!  I absolutely love helping other women see their power.  Yes, mama, I'm talking to you!

When I’m not behind a camera, or doing one of the million behind-the-scenes small business owner tasks, you’ll most likely find me surviving this mom life or outdoors on some sort of adventure with my little family.

I want to hear about you!
