Hi there, I’m Whitney Leigh Carlson, an artist who uses a camera and Photoshop as her tools! I ran a successful wedding and portrait photography business for 12 years and decided to retire when I realized I was overworked, my family needed me home more, and my heart needed a new creative outlet. This past year I have instead used my camera to photograph my life and surroundings, from the small details out my front door to the grand landscapes in my new home in Minnesota. There is so much beauty in the every day and discovering it when I take a walk with my son, hike with my husband, and sit outside with my friends creates an overwhelming sense of thankfulness for all that I’ve been given. I hope that you too can sense this mystery and joy when you view my images and that it will inspire you to see the incredible art that surrounds us daily. 
Select images are available to purchase as prints on Fine Art America.
