In this episode, I’m talking with Rhea Whitney, who is a wedding and portrait photographer for the chic and modern creative and couple. She’s also super passionate about helping other creatives and photographers thrive in their entrepreneurial journies as she’s a vet in the game…Rhea has been a photographer for 8 years and full time for the last 4! I love how she has been able to grow her business during that time and utilize her gifts and talents to help educate others. In May of 2019, Rhea launched a digital course for rising photographers called “From Hobbyist to Pro” teaching the keys to building a solid photography business foundation and social media marketing strategies.  It is such a pleasure to watch her journey and I’m blessed to know her! I enjoyed getting into her journey and discussing some of the obstacles that she has had to overcome…all with GRACE and GRATITUDE. 

During this episode, Rhea discussed:  

  • How she went from being an auditor at a non-profit organization to running a thriving full-time photography and coaching business
  • Why it’s imperative to stay true to who you are and what you’re passionate about as a creative
  • Specific ways that she pushes through fear and doubt as it arises along the way
  • Why it’s important to give yourself grace through it all 
  • How she had to surrender to God’s will and be obedient 
  • The importance of thinking about your thoughts 

And so much more! Tune in now to hear how Rhea took a leap of faith and the impact that it has made in her life and the lives of others.
