“When it came to styling for shoots and videos she put her trust in her team,” says Pat. “When it came to her wardrobe Whitney didn’t like following trends. Her favorite outfit was a white crisp shirt, jeans and some boots. We called ourselves twins because if I went shopping for some boots, I better come back with a pair for her or she was taking mine and she often did. I stopped getting mad about it and looked at it as her way of always being close to me.”

“This photograph was taken near the end of our photo shoot. Confident, sexy and feeling great about herself Whitney looked me right in the eyes and said ‘Don’t you love these boots Randee? Even the soles sparkle!’” says St. Nicholas.

“It’s so amazing to see how she started out as a young girl in this industry and then how she truly blossomed,” says Pat. “She became a grown woman and a mother. which she loved being to Bobbi Kristina.”  “I always called Whitney a woman-child because she was playful,” says St. Nicholas. “When she smiled the room was elevated. It just hydroplaned.”

“Whitney always played gospel before her photo shoots,” says Pat. “She was very quiet prior to going in front of the camera, meditating. I believe that’s why photographers always got so many great images of her because she had that peace within her.”  “I am always looking for the good in everyone and when you get someone like Whitney who has a good spirit, integrity, talent, beauty and generosity you want to capture it all,” says St. Nicholas

“No matter what was going on with her life, she never let go of her quest for God,” says Pat. “She had one foot in the world but she was a truth seeker. She never stopped believing in God to get her through.”

“Whitney was bigger than life but then there was that intimacy she shared,” says St. Nicholas. “She was just Whitney–doing her best and giving her all.”
